I love my University of Texas in Dallas MIS Club audience! I started with running videos of key events in the history of data science and AI since the 60s. I never imagined that I would show Charlie Chaplin in the 80s IBM PC commercial or talk about the first desktop computer of the 60s, the Olivetti Programma 1, but I did :). I then talked on how the Python programming is a common instrument for both types of data scientists, the analytical and the AI product building. I promoted Jupyter Labs over Jupyter notebooks and encouraged the audience to leverage cloud notebooks using Google Collab. Then we went onto the cool stuff that I prepared for the event. I showed case my quick and easy implementation of building a Twitter sentiment analysis product with Python, Tweepy APIs, Django, Google Cloud NLP, and Docker containers. I then walked the audience in how I built a production-ready customers reviews rating model in less than 4 hours using Google AutoML for language processing and a Kaggle dataset that I found through Google new dataset search engine. After that, we had fun recognizing objects in the auditorium with Amazon DeepLens camera after I deployed a pretrained neural network model for object detection. Time went so fast when it is all love for computers. #loveoflearning
