    Hello

    You have mentioned this is a worksop. Can you update the Learning Outcomes to specify what exactly you will be covering? Also, will 45 mins be enough for a worshop?

    Hello Sai,

    Thanks for your submission. Please add your comments on the following questions, and update the proposal accordingly

    1. Will it be possible for you to share the links for your proposal in terms of a presentation showing the different topics you will cover?

    2. It will be great if you could update the proposal sharing some previous speaking experience.

    3. Have you conducted this workshop before? Will be you conducting it solo? How many participants do you think you can handle for the workshop?

    4. Are the Deck of cards and dice a requirement only for the speaker, or are they required for each participant? or one per roundtable(depends on the seating arrangement required for the workshop)

    Dr. Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru - ML and DL in Production: Differences and Similarities

    45 Mins
    Talk
    Beginner

    While architecting a data-based solution, one needs to approach the problem differently depending on the specific strategy being adopted. In traditional machine learning, the focus is mostly on feature engineering. In DL, the emphasis is shifting to tagging larger volumes of data with less focus on feature development. Similarly, synthetic data is a lot more useful in DL than ML. So, the data strategies can be significantly different. Both approaches require very similar approaches to the analysis of errors. But, in most development processes, those approaches are not followed leading to substantial delay in production times. Hyper parameter tuning for performance improvement requires different strategies between ML and DL solutions due to the longer training times of DL systems. Transfer learning is a very important aspect to evaluate in building any state of the art system whether ML or DL. The last but not the least is understanding the biases that the system is learning. Deeply non-linear models require special attention in this aspect as they can learn highly undesirable features.

    In our presentation, we will focus on all the above aspects with suitable examples and provide a framework for practitioners for building ML/DL applications.

    Cleaning, Preparing , Transforming and Exploring Data is the most time-consuming and least enjoyable data science task, but one of the most important ones. With Optimus we’ve solve this problem for small or huge datasets, also improving a whole workflow for data science, making it easier for everyone. You will learn how the combination of Apache Spark and Optimus with the Python ecosystem can form a whole framework for Agile Data Science allowing people and companies to go further, and beyond their common sense and intuition to solve complex business problems.

    Demonstration
    Beginner

    This demo would be regarding some of the work that I have already done since starting my journey in Machine Learning. So, there are a lot of MOOCs out there for ML and data science but the most important thing is to apply the concepts learned during the course to solve simple real-world use cases.

    • One of the projects that I did included building state of the art Facial recognition system [VIDEO]. So for that, I referred to several research papers and the foundation was given to me in one of the courses itself, however, it took a lot of effort to connect the dots and that's the fun part.
    • In another project, I made an Emoji Classifier for humans [VIDEO] based on your hand gestures. For that, I used deep learning CNN model to achieve great accuracy. I took reference from several online resources that made me realize that the data science community is very helpful and we must make efforts to contribute back.
    • The other projects that I have done using machine learning:
      1. Handwritten digit recognition [VIDEO],
      2. Alphabet recognition [VIDEO],
      3. Apparel classification [VIDEO],
      4. Devnagiri recognition [VIDEO].

    With each project, I have tried to apply one new feature or the other to make my model a bit more efficient. Hyperparameter tuning or just cleaning the data.

    In this demonstration, I would just like to point out that knowledge never goes to waste. The small computer vision applications that I built in my college has helped me to gain deep learning computer vision task. It's always enlightening and empowering to learn new technologies.

    I recently was part of a session on ‘Solving real world applications from Machine learning’ to Microsoft Advanced Analytics User Group of Belgium as well as broadcasted across the globe (Meetup Link) [Session Recording]

    By now it is evident that a solid math foundation is indispensable if one has to get into Data science in an honest-to-goodness way. Unfortunately, for many of us math was just a means to get better scores at school-level and never really a means to understand the world around us.
    That systemic failure (education system) causes many of us to feel a “gap” when learning data science concepts. It is high time that we acknowledge that gap and take remedial action.

    The purpose of the workshop is to develop an intuitive understanding of the concepts.
    We let go the fear of rigorous notation and embrace the rationale behind it.
    The intended key take away for participants is confidence to deal with math.

    You have been hearing about machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) everywhere. You have heard about computers recognizing images, generating speech, natural language, and beating humans at Chess and Go.

    The objectives of the workshop:

    1. Learn machine learning, deep learning and AI concepts

    2. Provide hands-on training so that students can write applications in AI

    3. Provide ability to run real machine learning production examples

    4. Understand programming techniques that underlie the production software

    The concepts will be taught in Julia, a modern language for numerical computing and machine learning - but they can be applied in any language the audience are familiar with.

    Workshop will be structured as “reverse classroom” based laboratory exercises that have proven to be engaging and effective learning devices. Knowledgeable facilitators will help students learn the material and extrapolate to custom real world situations.

    Data science refers to the science of extracting useful information from data. Knowledge discovery in data bases, data mining, Information extraction also closely match with data science. Supervised learning,Semi supervised learning,Un supervised learning methodologies are out of Academia and penetrated deep into the industry leading to actionable insights, dashboard driven development, data driven reasoning and so on. Data science has been the buzzword for last few years in industry with only a handful of data scientists around the world. The industry needs more and more data scientists in future to solve problems using statistical techniques. The exponential availability of unstructured data from the web has thrown huge challenges to data scientists to exploit them before driving conclusions.

    Now that's overload of information and buzzwords. It all has to start somewhere? Where and how to start? How to get hands dirty rather than just reading books and blogs. Is it really science or just code?. Let's get into code to talk data science.

    In this workshop i will show the tools required to do real data science rather than just reading by building real models using Deep neural networks and show live demo of the same. Also share some of the key data science techniques every aspiring data scientist should have to thrive in the industry.

    Training a machine learning / deep learning model is one thing and deploying it to a production is completely different beast. Not only you have to deploy it to a production, but you will have to retrain the model every now and then and redeploy the updates. With many machine learning / deep learning projects / POCs running in parallel with multiple environments such as dev, test prod, managing model life cycle from training to deployment can quickly become overwhelming. In this talk, I will discuss an approach to handle this complexity using Docker and Python. Rough outline of the talk is,

    • Introduction to the topic
    • Problem statement
    • Quick introduction to Docker
    • Discussing the proposed architecture
    • Alternative architecture using AWS infrastructure
    • Demo
