UTMIST is thrilled to have Max Kiehn, Fellow (Software Development), ML Technical Lead at AMD with us to talk about how his team uses machine learning to transform your gaming experience.
Video games are arguably the most popular application for graphics hardware. To deliver the best possible gaming experience, performance and the highest standard of graphics driver quality, AMD tests dozens of game titles on hundreds of configurations. This talk will describe how AMD is leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate all aspects of gameplay testing.
Join us on Feb 23rd 5 - 6 PM to learn more about their team’s engineering feat. There is also a Q&A session at the end. Mark your calendar and sign up now!
Note: No prerequisite is required for the talk.
