What we're about

ODSC brings together the open source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open source community.

Webinar "How to Build Smart Matching with NLP"

Online event

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/how-to-build-smart-matching-with-nlp Topic: How to Build Smart Matching with NLP Abstract: Capably matching names and other personally identifiable information (PII) is critical to any effective compliance screening system: failure puts reputation, finances, and ethics on the line. Unfortunately, globalization coupled with the economic impact of the pandemic is testing screening systems like never before. As applications pour in, these systems are being asked to process key identity data in a huge variety of languages at unprecedented volumes. If these critical systems can’t keep up, everyone loses. But no one has to. In How to Build Smart Matching with NLP, AI vet Steve Cohen will provide you with a clear roadmap for enhancing your screening systems with AI and NLP so you can cut false positives, reduce risk, and find bad actors during this crisis. You’ll learn how to: * Leverage NLP/AI to reduce false positives and improve accuracy in your screening * Effectively integrate NLP/AI in even legacy technology * Ensure the NLP/AI enhanced systems are explainable and compliant With over two decades of experience working with government agencies and banks around the world on their toughest screening problems, we will give you the insights you need to confidently handle KYC during this challenging period. Speaker #1: Steve Cohen, EVP, COO, & Co-Founder of Basis Technology Steve co-founded Basis Technology in 1995 and oversees the firm's business operations.
