- WEBINAR: ODSC West Online Warm-Up (Free)
ODSC West is getting closer! We want to invite you to participate in ODSC West's Warm-Up. To access this webinar, please register using the link below: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3338809288646589441 After our great Part 1, we are bringing 4 new speakers from our ODSC West Conference to present 30 minutes sessions. Matthew Rubashkin, Ph.D. AI Program Director at Insight Data Science: Building an image search service from scratch Michael Mahoney, Ph.D. - Matrix Algorithms at Scale: Randomization and using Alchemist to bridge the Spark-MPI gap George Williams, Director of Data Science at GSI Technology, Inc: Visual Search: The Next Frontier of Search Joshua Cook, Curriculum Developer at Databricks: Engineering for Data Science Nisha Talagala, CTO/VP of Engineering at ParallelM: Bringing Your Machine Learning and Deep Learning Algorithms to Life: From Experiments to Production Use Full Agenda Detail Session 1 - Building an image search service from scratch Speaker: Matthew Rubashkin, PhD Abstract: We are bringing a workshop on how you would go about building your representations, both for image and text data, and efficiently do similarity search. By the end of this workshop, you should be able to build a quick semantic search model from scratch, no matter the size of your dataset. Session 2 - Matrix Algorithms at Scale: Randomization and using Alchemist to bridge the Spark-MPI gap (30 Minutes) Speaker: Michael Mahoney, PhD Abstract: In this session, we will describe some of the underlying randomized linear algebra techniques. We'll describe Alchemist, a system for interfacing between Spark and existing MPI libraries that are designed to address this performance gap. We describe use cases from scientific data analysis that motivated the development of Alchemist and that benefit from this system. We'll also describe related work on communication-avoiding machine learning, optimization-based methods that can call these algorithms, and extending Alchemist to provide an ipython notebook <=> MPI interface. Session 3 - Visual Search: The Next Frontier of Search (30 Minutes) Speaker: George Williams Abstract: In this session, you will learn the latest state-of-the-art visual search research and techniques as the speakers will share their in-depth knowledge on the subject, how to scale your visual search solution to address the billion-scale problem and how to train models that provide more specific and accurate results for visually rich categories. Session 4 - Engineering for Data Science (30 Minutes) Speaker: Joshua Cook Abstract: This talk will discuss Docker as a tool for the data scientist, in particular in conjunction with the popular interactive programming platform, Jupyter, and the cloud computing platform, Amazon Web Services (AWS). Using Docker, Jupyter, and AWS, the data scientist can take control of their environment configuration, prototype scalable data architectures, and trivially clone their work toward replicability and communication. This talk will toward developing a set of best practices for Engineering for Data Science. Speaker: Nisha Talagala Abstract: In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to take Machine Learning and Deep Learning programs into a production use case and manage the full production lifecycle. This workshop is targeted for data scientists, with some basic knowledge of Machine Learning and/or Deep Learning algorithms, who would like to learn how to bring their promising experimental results on ML and DL algorithms into production success.
- ODSC Europe Online Warm-Up (Free)
We are very excited to our ODSC Europe next month! As we get closer to the conference, we want to invite you to participate in ODSC Europe's Online Warm-Up. To access this webinar, please register using the link below: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/656457212932939779 We will features 4 speaker from our upcoming ODSC Europe conference in London each of which will present a 30 minute sessions including: Jeffrey Yau, PhD - Multivariate time series forecasting using statistical and machine learning models Alan Ruter - Telling Stories with Data Dr. Jan Freyberg - Interactive data visualisation in python Dr. Colin Gillespie - Getting to grips with the Tidyverse ® Full Agenda Detail Session 1 - Interactive data visualisation in python (30 Minutes) Speaker: Dr. Jan Freyberg Bio: Dr Jan Freyberg is a data scientist at ASI. He has worked on data science projects in the private and public sector. Jan completed a PhD and a fellowship studying brain activity, vision and consciousness in autism at the University of Cambridge and King’s College London Abstract: Creating interactive visualisations adds a layer of complexity to the data science workflow: during modelling and data exploration, interactivity is effectively achieved by re-running chunks of code with different parameters. In this overview, we will introduce the python libraries that make this extra development as frictionless as possible. Libraries to be used include ipywidgets, plotly, and plotly dash. Session 2 - Telling Stories with Data (30 Minutes) Speaker: Alan Ruter Bio: Alan Rutter is the co-founder of consultancy Clever Boxer. He has taught data visualisation techniques to thousands of students, and for organisations including the Home Office, Department of Health, Biotechnology and Biosciences Research Council, Capita, Novartis and Kings College London. Abstract: This session will introduce an audience-centred approach to visualising data. It will cover with tried-and-tested techniques for communicating data-driven stories effectively to people from a broad range of backgrounds. Session 3 - Getting to Grips with the Tidyverse ® (30 Minutes) Speaker: Dr. Colin Gillespie Bio: Dr. Colin Gillespie is Senior lecturer (Associate Professor) at Newcastle University, UK. His research interests are high performance statistical computing and Bayesian statistics and also regularly employed as a consultant. Abstract: This overview aims to give a gentle introduction to the ideas behind some of the standard algorithms used in predictive analytics. The goal is to dispel the "magic" around common methods, such as lasso, logistic regression, naive bayes and others. Session 4 - Multivariate time series forecasting using statistical and machine learning models (30 Minutes) Speaker: Jeffrey Yau, PhD Bio: Jeffrey is the Chief Data Scientist at AllianceBernstein, a global investment firm managing over $500 billions. Graduated with a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania. Abstract: This overview introduces the formulation Vector Autoregressive (VAR) Models, one of the most important class of multivariate time series statistical models, and neural network-based techniques, demonstrates how they are implemented in practice, and compares their advantages and disadvantages used in practice.
