#17:30 Arrive and refreshments

#18:00 Welcome

#18:10 IBM – AI live demo including a use case
Speaker: Marvin Giessing (Data Scientist)
What is the talk about? An end-to-end demo of IBM PowerAI Vision Training Server and PowerAI Vision Inference Server usage. The demo will show dataset creation, data augmentation, training and inference for image classification and object detection. Our deep learning process helps data scientists to achieve faster training times. Additionally different use-cases from several domains will be shown and discussed.

#18:30 Codete GmbH – Skin cancer detection using IBM PowerAI Vision
Speaker: Kacper Łukawski (Data Scientist)
During the presentation, we are going to show how to implement an end-to-end computer vision system for skin cancer recognition with IBM PowerAI Vision. The talk will describe how to handle the datasets, train a custom CNN-based model and eventually deploy it for production usage with the platform. Our case will show how to move an existing ML model to PVAI and reduce the time spend on training.

#19:00 AICURA medical – Multi-Stage Reinforcement Learning For Object Detection
Speaker: Sebastian Niehaus (Machine Learning Engineer)
What is the talk about? We present a reinforcement learning approach for detecting objects within an image. Our approach performs a step-wise deformation of a bounding box with the goal of tightly framing the object. It uses a hierarchical tree-like representation of predefined region candidates, which the agent can zoom in on. This reduces the number of region candidates that must be evaluated so that the agent can afford to compute new feature maps before each step to enhance detection quality.

#19:30 - end Wrap up & get together followed by refreshments

(till 21:00 everyone has to leave the location)
