Start the day off right with a catered breakfast and networking between students, companies, and faculty.  The summit sponsors will have tables set up, and many other visitors will be present for discussions.  Use this time to share resumes, swap business cards, explore internship opportunities, and discuss your various ongoing projects.

Lunch will be catered and provides even more opportunity for discussion and networking.  This is a chance to interact with the people behind the work.  Each of the undergraduate capstone teams, along with a collection of graduate and undergraduate researchers, will be available to explain their ongoing work (with the help of a poster), and in some cases even provide demonstrations of their creations.  In addition, student organizations relating to computer science will be available to discuss their activities and how students, alumni, faculty, and guests can get involved.


Building Intelligent Systems with Large Scale Deep Learning

Abstract and Bio
