PowerAI + Image Manipulation on IBM i, Brussels IBM Client Center 5 October 2017

IBM Client Center, Brussels More details below Register here

http://www.common.be/Registration_Power_AI_and_Image_Manipulation_on_IBM_i

This "PowerAI + Image Manipulation on IBM i" event is FREE for COMMON user group members
or a first activity to non-members.

Dear colleagues,

Why should you come to this event organized by COMMON Belgium? Today, all of us
have a mobile phone in our pocket or purse. Taking a picture has become second nature.
But this phone is not simply for personal use, it is also a business instrument.
And Koen Decorte will show us how to send these images and other data to your IBM i.
And he will not just stop there he will show us how to manipulate those images along with
their data for our business applications.

Artificial Intelligence on Power Systems is yet another topic with a big buzz today.
It is our future. IBM Belgium’s Franz Bourlet will demystify it in the opening presentation.

Further, we also care to give you a stress free learning experience. To avoid traffic jams,
we start at 10:30 with a welcome coffee, offer you lunch and a relaxed networking drink
after the event, all finishing at 15:45 so that you can avoid the traffic jam for joining
your dear ones.
Your registration offers you free parking in the basement.

And like always, there will be a prize for everybody returning the evaluation form.  

Looking forward to seeing you in great numbers,

The COMMON Belgium Board
