Automated Machine Learning for the Enterprise

IBM Canada Lab

As we move past the AI hype of 2018 and embrace 2019 with a dose of pragmatism, we see that Talent, Trust and Time continue to be key inhibitors to enterprise adoption and proliferation of AI technologies such as machine and deep learning. Join us for a discussion on better understanding these challenges and learn how automating machine learning can be leveraged to successfully overcome them. With built-in intelligence, Automated Machine Learning provides methods and processes that improve the efficiency of Machine Learning. Automated Machine Learning can complement and augment the work of expert data scientists by automating some of the complex tasks such as · Data Visualization · Feature Engineering · Model Selection · Model Tuning and Training · Model Parallelization using multiple CPUs and GPUs · Interpretability and Explainability Finally, we will also demo the most innovative and highest performing automated machine learning platform, brought to you by H20 Driverless AI and IBM Systems, that will make machine learning easier, faster and simpler to explain such that your organization can leverage AI to disrupt and win!
