-- What? --
In this meetup we have 2 amazing talks from teams that won 1st place in international competitions in Machine Learning (NLP and Object Recognition).

*This is a technical meetup, which requires at least a basic understanding of Deep Learning for NLP and Object Recognition.

-- Agenda --
18:00-18:20 Gathering and Networking
18:20-18:50 Transfer Learning from Language Models - 1st prize winner @ WASSA 2018 implicit emotions shared task (IEST) / Alon Rozental, Amobee
18:50-19:05 Snacks, Beer and Networking
19:05-19:35 Fine-Grained Classification of Objects from Aerial Imagery - 1st prize winner @ MAFAT Challenge / Seffi Cohen
19:35-20:00 Networking

-- About the talks --
- Transfer Learning from Language Models.
In this talk we will present several different ways to achieve high performance in language understanding tasks by preforming transfer learning from language models and how we at Amobee used one of those techniques to win a competitions in the recent EMNLP conference (WASSA, sentiment detection).
Alon Rozental, Data Science Team Lead @ Amobee

- Fine-Grained Classification of Objects from Aerial Imagery.
Using Ensemble of Convolutional Neural Networks to automatically classify different objects found in aerial imagery data. This includes coarse-grained classification for main classes (for example - large vehicle) and fine-grained classification of subclasses and unique features (for example - a car that has a sunroof).
