Talk Abstracts:

Tools for AI/ML in the Real World by Serkan Piantino, CEO and Founder of Spell (infrastructure for AI and Deep Learning), and former Director of Engineering at Facebook AI Research:
The machine learning landscape has shifted dramatically as artificial/deep neural networks have become the technique of choice, solving a wide variety of previously difficult problems in machine intelligence. As a result engineers, data scientists and researchers everywhere are learning how to build these networks and are applying them to new products and domains.

With this new activity the tools and ecosystem around deep learning are being stretched beyond their original academic roots. This talk will focus on where the tools are going, and how to build reproducible and robust machine learning pipelines with open source tools and frameworks.

Applying ML to Automatic Text Summarization of Documents at Scale by , Guilherme De Olivera, Data Scientist at Dataiku:
During his talk, Guilherme De Olivera, Data Scientist at Dataiku, maker of the collaborative advanced analytics & ML platform, will use natural language processing and machine learning to programmatically extract text summaries.
