Machine learning for leukaemia detection by Pascal Niville

Leukaemia is a blood cancer that keeps on distributing people’s lives all over the world. In order to improve the chances of survival an early diagnosis is a necessity. At Ixor we’ve designed an algorithm that could speed up the diagnosis establishment, by automating the malicious cells count in the bone marrow. In this talk the we’ll go further into the technical details of the used algorithms and some of the problems that we’ve encountered. Key words are Image classification, object detection and uncertainty in neural networks.

Speaker: Pascal graduated as Bio-ingenieur at the KUL. Pascal started his career in data analysis and quickly found himself fascinated by machine learning. He is passionate about nature and he is devoted to surf the ultimate wave. Last year Pascal joined the IxorThink team as machine learning engineer. His focus lays on projects within the healthcare sector.

Supercharging your webapp by Koen Van den Wijngaert

You've probably heard about the revolution in web development: Progressive Web Apps. In this talk, Koen will introduce you to the wonderful world of PWAs and what they're all about. In a world of connectedness, the offline-first approach is often neglected.

Leveraging the power of service workers, it is now easier than ever to create awesome near native applications using the technologies you're already acquainted with!

Speaker: While making the web a better place at SiteOptimo, Koen likes playing around with interesting new technologies to see how they can improve both the developer's and user's experience. In his spare time, he fails graciously at trying to balance his various interests and hobbies.
