6:30pm: Talk by Kale Temple from Intellify


Time-series, as a field of study, has largely focused on statistical methods that work well under strict assumptions. Specifically, when there is sufficient history, there is little meta-data and a well-formed auto-correlation structure. However, as an applied practitioner I know that most real-world time series problems violate these assumptions. This leaves us with an opportunity to use more modern time series methods, based on machine learning (and deep learning), to overcome these deficiencies. This session is designed to briefly speak about the unique properties of time-series, how statistical methods work and how and why machine learning (and deep learning) methods can be used to improve accuracy.

6:50pm: What is NEW in TensorFlow 2.0 by Erica Huang


In this talk, Erica will show audience a series of demos using TensorFlow 2.0; In here, she has included several examples to highlight the new features of TensorFlow 2.0 and to compare and contrast with that of TensorFlow 1.0

Speaker intro:

Ms Erica Huang graduated from Honors (first class) from University of Sydney in 2016. She is currently a PhD student at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) supervised by Prof Richard Xu. She is specializing in probabilistic Deep Learning Generation.

7:10pm: What is new in Deep Learning by Andy Zeng

This is Andy’s usual section on showing audience all the goodies happening in Deep Learning in the last six months.
