Implementing Deepmind's WaveNet: A case study on using Keras for rapid prototyping deep nets.
With the quick development of the deep learning field and the growing number of high quality frameworks, picking the right framework can be tough. In this talk, I'll make the case for Keras as a flexible and future-proof framework, and demonstrate its API by demoing how to implement Deepmind's recent WaveNet paper. Along the way I'll share some tips and tricks on how to rapidly develop your own neural network architectures with Keras. Take a look at github.com/basveeling/wavenet for a sneak peek.
Speaker bio: Bas Veeling
Bas Veeling is a master student Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam. He is interning at Philips Research and writing his master thesis on deep learning in the medical domain. Before that he interned at Google Research in Mountain View working on visualization for computer vision infrastructure. When he's not writing code or thesis material he can be found producing electronic music, without neural networks (yet).
Exploring the Panama Papers Network
Exploratory Data Analysis on the Panama Papers Network. In this talk, I look at how we can use python to explore the structure of a network too big to visualize in one go, using python. The talk is based on the blog post http://www.degeneratestate.org/posts/2016/Jun/30/exploring-the-panama-papers-network/
