What we're about

The Home of AI in the Midlands.

A place for AI and Machine Learning boffins and get together and discuss how we're using Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, AI Planning, Clustering, Reinforcement Learning etc to change the way our companies do business, invent new products, enhance existing ones or just make things work better.
If you're using AI / ML at work, are studying it at Uni or online, or have read (or written!) an interesting paper recently, come along and tell us about it!

Event overview
T1:
This talk will introduce the theory behind automatic machine learning systems and the juxtaposing practical design and implementation of Modela, a new Kubernetes-based AutoML platform. Founder Tomer Sagi, will elaborate on the advantages of declarative machine learning and how Modela extends Kubernetes with custom resources that allow users to declaratively analyse data and perform competitive model searches. Furthermore, we will explore the supporting infrastructure necessary to provide automation, scalability, and ease of use in the form of model & data pipelines, self-service MLOps, Kubernetes-native job scheduling and access control, and more. At the end will be a brief demonstration of the platform.
T2:
TBC
