Day 15: The big day—the IEEE conference!

With today being the big day of the IEEE conference, and the main reason this trip was made, everyone was mentally preparing for this big event for the last few days.
With today being the big day of the IEEE conference, and the main reason this trip was made, everyone was mentally preparing for this big event for the last few days.

While at the conference, we split off and went to different presentations based on our interest. Some high-level concepts that were talked about were machine learning, big data processing, cognitive computing, and deep learning.

The schedule for the day was split up in five blocks. It first starts with two blocks of presentation with five presenters each. Then, a keynote speaker presented to everyone.

We then broke off for lunch and finished the conference with two more blocks of presentations.



Overall, the conference was enjoyable, even though some of the content was too focused to truly understand, but we made sure to grab as much info as we could.



 After the conference some decided to relax by having group laundry to de-funk our luggage.


Others went to a restaurant next to the river and enjoyed their first enormous Florentine steaks.



Ciao ciao,
