We are experimenting with a new format of moderated live streamed sessios with top experts from field, so don't hesitate and come with frineds to ImpactHUB to support us, enjoy talk and rock the afterparty!

In the first half of this talk, I’ll introduce and describe Private Deep Learning, which is an approach to training neural networks in an encrypted state such that it’s growing intelligence (and the underlying data) is protected from theft. This will include a description of Federated Learning and Multi-Party Computation.

In the second half of this talk, I’ll be discussing the significant impacts this technology has when combined with the recent advancements in Blockchain and Peer-to-Peer into a new open-source platform called OpenMined. This will include a live demo showing how to train a neural network on a large, distributed, private dataset.

Andrew Trask is a PhD Student at the University of Oxford studying Deep Learning. He is also the author of Grokking Deep Learning, a Manning Publications introductory book which has sold over 6000 copies, an instructor in Udacity’s Deep Learning Nanodegree, and the author of a popular machine learning blog . Previously, Andrew was a researcher and analytics product manager at Digital Reasoning where he trained the world’s largest artificial neural network with over 160 billion parameters and helped guide the analytics roadmap for the Synthesys AI platform deployed to many Enterprises such as Goldman Sachs, UBS, HCA (the largest hospital network in North America), various members of the Intelligence Community, and the US Military. Andrew lives on a boat in Oxford with his wife Amber and plays piano in his spare time

Machine Learning Meetups (MLMU) is an independent platform for people interested in Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Data Journalism, Artificial Intelligence, Agent Systems and all the related topics. MLMU is a regular community meeting usually consisting of a talk, a discussion and a subsequent networking. At the end of the year 2016, MLMU spread also to Brno and Bratislava.
