• 6:45pm - 7:00pm Networking
• 7:00pm - 8:30pm Presentation: "Extracting Names using RNNs" by Martin Andrews
Martin's current day-job involved processing text - and this talk shows how Deep Learning techniques (word embeddings and recurrent neural networks) can be applied to text. It will include a walk-through of a working Jupyter notebook (which people can follow along with using a VirtualBox Appliance that will be circulated at the event).
Martin Andrews has a PhD in Machine Learning, and has been an Open Source developer since 1999. After a career in finance (based in London and New York), he decided to follow his original passion, and now works on Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence full-time. Martin has given several talks and workshops on Deep Learning over the last 12 months, including FOSSIA, PyConSG, DataScienceSG and at the Fifth Elephant conference (in India).
