Worum es bei uns geht

A meetup for academics, professionals and hobbyists interested in applications and latest developments in Machine Learning, and AI more broadly. We talk about:

• Computer vision, speech recognition, text mining, generative design

• New papers that we're excited about, and software that we use

• Cool applications of AI & machine learning, and how we made them

We strive to focus on the science & technology side, as opposed to the commercial side.

We typically meet the first Monday of every month.

We're always looking for interesting presentations. If you have a topic you want to talk about, anything from 10 to 45 minutes long, then please email gtrent@gmail.com. For talks we are explicitly *not* commercial. We organize this meetup because we are passionate about AI & ML, not to promote some product or service.

If an organization would like to host us, or sponsor food & drink, let us know.

Our official Twitter hashtag is #MLBerlin (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23MLBerlin).

Talk 1: Duplicates ... duplicates everywhere. Speaker: Alexey Grigorev Abstract: Record linkage is a problem of discovering duplicates in large datasets. The problem often arises with user-generated content or when integrating different data sources. In this talk we suggest to approach it as a search problem and solve it in two steps: - Candidate selection, where we narrow down the search space to a manageable amount of candidate duplicates and - Candidate re-scoring, where we use classical supervised learning techniques to select the actual duplicates We illustrate the approach with real-life examples: online classifieds where users create multiple listings to sell the same thing, and a real-estate data aggregation platform, where data comes from different sources and needs to be linked together. We also show how to extended the approach to other similar problems like finding different devises that belong to the same person. Bio: Alexey is an experienced Software Engineer with focus on Machine Learning. Currently he works at OLX Group as a Senior Data Scientist where he mostly deals with content moderation and image models. He has been doing software engineering professionally for more than 10 years, 6 of which he spent working with Machine Learning. - Talk 2: Towards replacing astronomers with AI. Speaker: Ludwig Rauch Abstract: Astronomy is built on a 2000 year history, in which mankind has continuously pushed the limits of both engineering and human knowledge in order to map and understand the Universe. Recent advances in the performance of telescopes and computing power are now revolutionising this ancient field. The detection rates of new supernovae, black holes and gravitational waves are reaching heights at which human decision-making forms the primary bottleneck for discoveries. Astronomical discoveries will not be able to continue to accelerate at present trends unless we can exploit machine learning algorithms to substitute humans in the scientific process. I will present a ML application to estimate the distance to galaxies that is embedded in a novel software package to manage real-time data feeds of astronomical data. Bio: Ludwig studied physics at the University of Heidelberg. He received his PhD in astroparticle physics from the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics, working on data analysis of a dark matter experiment. In the past two years, he has worked as a postdoc at DESY, Berlin and the Humboldt University. His research focusses on the development of real-time data streaming software to search for correlations between high-energy neutrino detections at the South Pole and optical telescope detections by exploiting machine learning algorithms
