Talk #1: From narrow to hype and the challenges of AI applications

We all heard about Data Science, then about Machine Learning, "AI is the new electricity" and many other hype things. However, what is feasible now? Where did it come from? Moreover, should you use Machine Learning? Oh wait, is this about Machine Learning or AI? Are they different? So many questions... let's clarify some points, discuss what are the next challenges and how developing AI products bring different complexities to software development.

Talk #2: Combining machine learning and search through learning to rank

With advanced tools available for search like Solr and Elasticsearch, companies are embedding search in almost all their products and websites. Search is becoming mainstream. Therefore we can focus on teaching the search engine tricks to return more relevant results. One new trick is called "learning to rank". During the presentation you'll learn what Learning To Rank is, when to apply it and of course you'll get an example to show how it works using Elasticsearch and a learning to rank plugin. After this presentation you have learned to combine machine learning models and search.
