Shoutout to our venue sponsor Wisesight, the leader in social listening in Thailand and Southeast Asia. RSVP at: https://www.meetup.com/Bangkok-School-of-AI/events/262409333
True to our philosophy of no-nonsense data science, this coming Thursday we have two speakers, with varying degrees of credentials. One thing they can both claim, however, is that they have created a data product that has real impact. Meet Chawan, winner of KBTG nationwide TechJam 2018, and Tor, the Data Research Manager at one of Southeast Asia's largest social listening companies Wisesight. Free beer 🍻(2 barrels) and pizzas on a first-come-first-serve basis.
1. Lesson from TechJam 2018 - Using Deep Learning in Big Data Analysis by Chawan Piansaddhayanon, Student at Chulalongkorn University / Winner of TechJam 2018 / Intern at Oxygen.AI
For predictive model, it is common that deep learning often outperforms traditional machine learning when there is a large amount of data. However, the use of deep learning is not that popular as it is well-known for having low interpretability compared to the traditional one. Yet this might not always be true as now, there are tools for visualizing the model and some modern architecture, such as Autoencoder can give us some understanding about the data. Therefore, the advantage of using deep learning, the way to get some insight from the data and understand will be discussed in this talk by using the data from 2018 techjam competition, which is time series data, as an example.
2. [Talk in Thai] Learning from Social Data and Thailand Elections by Puttasak Tantisuttivet (Tor), Data Research Manager at Wisesight
The long-awaited general election in Thailand has been one of the most controversial and actively discussed one in our history. This is in no small part fueled by social media. Tor leads Wisesight data unit in one of the region's largest and most sophisticated social listening operations. Let him walk you through the steps of churning massive social media data into valuable insights including how to deal with sampling, sourcing, and noise.
- Door opens at 18:30
- Talk with a small break in between
- Networking ends around 20:30
