## Using Machine Learning to Imitate Human Behaviour in Betting
by Admond Lee, Data Scientist at Micron (https://www.micron.com)
It's often said that there are nine losses out of ten bets. In this talk, Admond will share his experience of building a machine learning model using XGBoost to imitate players' behaviour and some of the interesting results to profit from betting based on intuitive model interpretability.
## An Introduction to Explainable Machine Learning
by Ong Ming Lun, a Graduate Research Student at the National University of Singapore
State-of-the-art Machine Learning models have become immensely popular over the last few years. However, due to their complexity, they are often regarded as black-boxes. In this presentation, Ming Lun will put forward a case for Explainability to better understand Machine Learning models, creating an understanding that better aligns with human intuition.
