Our meetup group consists of people coming from companies, PhD/Master students. We are interested in having a community of data-scientists in Grenoble so as to learn and work on interesting projects.
Why is it interesting? Well, do you know: -- Given the data about passengers, the computer algorithms are able to predict if a passenger would have survived Titanic crash with 99% accuracy. -- soon your car insurance costs would be computed automatically with your past history of driving. -- the movie suggestions on Netflix are all personalized for you based on your past ratings. -- When you apply for a loan, the algorithms in bank give you a credit rating, depending upon your past account history. -- GPS navigator analyzes the driving routes of humans, in order to generate time saving "human-like" suggestions for routes.
So if you are fascinated by data-science, machine learning, data-visualizations or maths, feel free to drop by for the next meet-up. Even if you have no idea about the topics, but you have desire to learn, do drop by!
For our last meetup in 2019 we propose to present the results of an initiative created and carried out by Neovision: The AI Excellence Scholarship. Neovision funded four research internships in local laboratories specialized in artificial intelligence.
We offer you to attend the English-speaking presentation of research works led by the four students selected and ask them your questions :
Improving Action Recognition Through Key-Frame Selection (Juan Vazquez & James Crowley, INRIA)
The effect of dependence in selecting smoothing parameters in a non-parametric regression model (Suraj Ghimire & Sana Louhichi, LJK)
Does multistable perception needs intelligence? (José Lucas Araújo dos Santos & Ronald Phlypo, Gipsa Lab)
Efficient optimization algorithms for time warp invariant sparse coding and dictionary learning for temporal data (Hlib Tsyntseus & Anatoli Iouditski, LJK)
