    TALK 2: "Scaling Data Science with Dask" by Pavithra Eswaramoorthy

    Description:
    (30 mins) With the growing significance of big data for data science and machine learning, scaling data work is more important than ever.

    In this talk, you'll learn to scale your workflow to larger datasets and larger models, while staying in the comfort of the PyData ecosystem (NumPy, pandas, scikit-learn, Jupyter notebooks), using Dask.

    Dask is an open source library for parallel computing in Python. It provides a complete framework for distributed computing and makes it easy for data professionals to scale their workflows quickly. Dask is used in a wide range of domains from finance and retail to academia and life sciences. It is also leveraged internally by numerous special-purpose tools like XGBoost, RAPIDS, PyTorch, Prefect, Airflow, and more.

    After attending, you'll know:
    - What is Dask, how it works, and what makes it powerful;
    - What are parallel, distributed, and cloud computing technologies;
    - When to consider scaling your data and machine learning work, and when not to;
    - How to use Dask to leverage parallelism on your local workstation, such as your laptop;
    - How to use Dask to harness the power of distributed clusters (on-cloud or on-prem) from the comfort of your laptop.

    =======
    TALK 1 : "Research Survivor" by Qishan Yang (PyLadies Dublin)
    Description:
    (15 mins) My research and career. My PhD. research was about data warehouse architecture modelling, investigation, and evaluation. I also did some research on novel concepts and state-of-the-art technologies for data management in the context of big data.

    After my Ph.D., I joined a project as a postdoc researcher. This project used deep learning models to investigate gait data for health. It is the first system to provide gait analysis as a service generating spatial and temporal gait features from videos. Currently, I am working in a start-up company, which provides insights into what's happening and what's working (or not) for staff in a company. It also enables Leaders and HRs to make faster and better decisions.

    Bio:
    Data Scientist at Wrky (Dublin City University). I have been using Python for a couple of years during my research and current work. Before Python, I was using c++ and Java to build up systems, websites and analyse data. But when I needed to analyse more data and run machine learning and deep learning models more effectively and efficiently, I started using Python as the main programming language.

  • PyLadies Dublin September Meetup: Lifelogging || Sentiment Analysis

    [UPDATE] We are delighted to announce a lightning talk on "Multimedia Retrieval in Lifelogging" by Liting Zhou, and Chenyang Lyu who will be talking about "Sentiment Analysis Enhanced by User and Product Context"

    The event will be live-streamed, so join us in live chat, chill with your tea/coffee and some biccies.

    📢 If you have any announcements or questions, you can email us at [masked]

    ❤️ A BIG THANK YOU
    ====================
    I'd like to thank all those who have been attending and watching our videos, we appreciate your support as it took a lot of work to set it up, if you are curious, you can read Vicky's post about it: https://dev.to/pyladiesdub/live-streaming-from-zoom-meet-via-obs-to-youtube-2l3h - any feedback would be helpful to make this process smoother and easier to manage. 🥰

    TALK 1: Multimedia Retrieval in Lifelogging by Liting Zhou
    (15 mins) The Multimedia Retrieval in Lifelogging is aimed to cope with many types of media including images, videos, audios and biometric data. In this talk, we will give a quick introduction of lifelog and talk about the lifelog moment retrieval in NTCIR workshop. Furthermore, the development of Lifelog Retreival system also will be described detailedly.

    ABOUT Liting Zhou
    Liting Zhou is a postdoctoral researcher at the Adapt Centre at Dublin City University. Her research topics are focused on multimedia analytics and lifelogging. Liting was a co-founder of the NTCIR-lifelog comparative benchmarking tasks at NTCIR.
    http://ntcir-lifelog.computing.dcu.ie/

    TALK 2: Sentiment Analysis Enhanced by User and Product Context by Chenyang Lyu
    (15 mins)Past work that improves sentiment analysis by encoding user and product information has been limited to considering only the text of the current review. We investigate incorporating additional review text available at the time of sentiment prediction that may prove meaningful for guiding prediction. Firstly, we incorporate all available historical review text belonging to the author of the review in question. Secondly, we investigate the inclusion of historical reviews associated with the current product (written by other users). We achieve this by explicitly storing representations of reviews written by the same user and about the same product and force the model to memorize all reviews for one particular user and product. Experiment results on IMDB, Yelp 2013 and Yelp 2014 datasets show improvement to state-of-the-art of more than 2 percentage points in the best case.

    About Chenyang Lyu
    -----------------------------
    Chenyang is currently a PhD student of Computer Science at Dublin City University, his research interests are mainly about Natural Language Processing especially on sentiment analysis and question&answering related topics.

    ==TALK==
    Title: Scraping Wikipedia using SPARQL and DBPedia by Nabanita Roy

    Description: Wikipedia is a great platform for creating rich datasets, especially for NLP use-cases. The crowd-sourced information of Wikipedia is stored in a semantically structured database called the DBpedia. In this demo, I will talk about how to build a corpus of Wikipedia contents by using SPARQL to query DBPedia. I will introduce the concepts of Linked Data and RDF Graphs as well to set the context of the work.

    Talk 1 title: Bias in NLP: using linguistics and computer science to improve AI/ML fairness by Alina Zhiltsova

    Description:
    ----------------
    In this talk I will briefly talk about various types of biases in NLP and where they can be found by a regular online user. We will also discuss how these biases can be measured and mitigated, and the benefits of having skills from non-STEM domains for such task.

    About Alina Zhiltsova
    --------------------------------
    NLP Data Scientist with 5+ years of background in linguistics. Teaching how languages work both to people and to the algorithms.

    Talk 2 Title: Automating social media content with Python and Mako by Lais Carvalho

    Description:
    ----------------
    As someone who works a lot with communities, I have more Twitter accounts than I can count. Add the weekly events, blog posts, and emails we have to deal with - I call it "the Copy & Paste ritual" and any sort of effective management can get close to impossible.
    With that in mind, I've decided to write a script to generate all social media content for weekly events I have been running for one community.
    The project consists of a folder with templates, and a script. Running the script generates all the content to be posted on the weekly social media channels and I regained my rights to have a movie night on Sunday evenings!

    About Lais Carvalho
