What we're about

This group was established during spring 2016 to be a relevant, rather "techy", yet informal meeting forum for the data science community in Stockholm. Since then we have hosted several meetups every year to share knowledge regarding predictive analysis, machine learning, AI, how to find insights using different tools and techniques, and also how to carry out the insights and analysis in an organisation.

Format: Meetups are held in Gamla Stan just after work hours, until approx 20:30. Every meetup will have one or two speakers and time to network and discuss the topics with the participants of the meetup. Mainly the presentations in the meetup are held in Swedish, but everyone is of course welcome to network in any language you prefer. The meetups are free of charge, guests get a drink and a sub. Costs for the venue, drinks and food are covered by Ferrologic Analytics, sometimes together with a sponsor. We do this in an "open source spirit" out of genuine interest in sharing knowledge related to data science.

We have a strict policy regarding the relevance of content presented on meetups. We do welcome sponsors as speakers, but not at the expense of relevance. Sponsors may present themselves and their organizations, have some marketing material handouts etc, but the presentation must rely on content relevant to the audience, and not on marketing & sales purposes. No sponsors or members in the group may use group messaging or mail to distribute sales or recruiting pitches to group members. We have turned down a large number of sponsors based on that.

The same principle goes for discussions in the group forum. I.e. sales pitches and recruiting is not OK here. This is a meetup for knowledge-sharing and networking, not for selling and recruiting. Members not respecting this will be notified and possibly excluded. Discussions violating the rules regarding sales and recruiting will be deleted by admin.

Predicting human intent || Att skapa en AI-regering

Kan Artificiell Intelligens förstå hur människor agerar i passerkontroller? Och är AI mogen att ta över regeringen? Dessa frågor dyker vi ned i på nästa Stockholm Data Science Meetup. Gábor Stikkel från HID Global kommer att visa hur de använder Machine Learning för att förutsäga människors beteende i passerkontroller. Dessutom berättar David och Filip från Ferrologic om hur de skapade en regeringsförklaring med hjälp av ett neuralt nätverk. Välkommen att nätverka med andra data scientists och lyssna på två intressanta presentationer! Att skapa en AI-regering ******************************************************** Tre månader efter valet stod Sverige fortfarande utan en regering. David och Filip tröttnade på den långa väntan och funderade på om en regering baserad på Artificiell intelligens var redo att ta över. Sagt och gjort samlade de in alla regeringsförklaringar 1976 och lät ett neuralt nätverk producera en egen version. AI-regeringen fick både publicitet i Aftonbladet TV och i SvD när 2019 års regeringsförklaring kom. David och Filip kommer att prata om hur de använde Python och R för att analysera regeringsförklaringarna och bygga det neurala nätverket. Predicting human intent in physical access control ******************************************************** Every day millions of people in more than 100 countries use HID Global products and services to securely access physical and digital places. Mobile Access, digital keys on a mobile phone, is an important area in the access control industry that benefits from machine learning. The presentation will be about explaining the use cases and demonstrate how state-of-the art machine learning approaches can help predicting user behavior to create a delightful experience. The focus will be on recognizing hand gestures using mobile phone sensors and operating machine learning models in resource constrained environments (also known as "edge ML"). The topic will be presented by Gábor Stikkel who is a senior data scientist at HID. He has a background in applied mathematics and 6+ years’ of experience in predictive modelling. He will show how adventurous it is working with physical access control use cases! Agenda ******************************************************** 17:15 – Dörrarna öppnas, ta en öl, lite snacks och nätverka 17:45 - 18:15 – Filip W & David R, Ferrologic, presenteras på svenska 18:15 – Break 18:45 - 19:30 – Gábor Stikkel, HID Global, presented in English
