I'm delighted to announce a new meet up for IBM AI (The Artist Formerly Known As IBM PowerAI Meetup). We have a new venue, a new sponsor and are ready to welcome you all to this event.
IBM is focused on all aspects of AI, but our meetup group is focused on innovation around Open Source Deep Learning and its application across industry verticals including Healthcare, Life Sciences, Research and Academia, Financial Services, Telecommunications and Media and Manufacturing.
This meetup is our first for a while, so here's how the agenda is shaping up:
1) Introduction and Meetup Overview: Mark Woolnough, IBM Systems AI Team - A general welcome and overview of the IBM Systems AI Landscape and Open Source. (20 minutes)
2) AI in Healthcare - Deep Learning for MR imaging, Matthias Treder and Ryan Codrai, Cardiff University - This talk will be a more technical look at the application of deep learning with medical imaging and the challenges ahead with richer data sets and how these might be addressed. (30 minutes)
3) Ethics in AI: Stategies to Manage Fairness and Bias in AI Lifecycle, Speaker TBA from IBM Systems AI Team - This talk will show IBM tooling for analysing data bias in machine learning models, the difference between bias and fairness and a bit about putting models into production and lifecycle. (30 minutes)
4) Show and Tell: Some examples of the application of AI from the IBM Systems AI Team - this will show some work done by the IBM Systems AI Team (any remaining time).
Our event sponsor, Techdata, who will be providing drinks and nibbles provided by The Watershed.
Look forward to seeing you all there. It's been too long!
