Small data, great insights: ML/DL tricks with restricted data

Room 103

Miklós Tóth, AlphaGen
Levente Szabados, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management

With all the talk about big data in practical use cases we very often find ourselves in settings where specific data is very limited so we have to resort to special techniques to be able to train reasonably performing models. In this workshop - building on their hands on experience as well as theoretical reflections accumulated during teaching and mentoring - Miklós and Levente demonstrate a wide variety of techniques combatting "small data" and also along the way try to draw some conclusions about the generalization abilities of (deep) machine learning models as well as demonstrate with hands on exercises the application of these methods. Who is this for? Data scientists with practical experience who would like to broaden the palette of their tools and gain some theoretical insights as well.

ML in live data processing

Room 106

Tomáš Neubauer, Quix
Javier Blanco Cordero, Quix

In this workshop you will learn how to use machine learning in real-time systems. You will process data live with a trained ML model with almost no latency. In 3 hour workshop you will get a chance to build PoC using Python from scratch with a team that worked in F1 racing processing car telemetry at a massive scale.

Text analysis with Apache Spark 3.x and Python

Room 203

David Vrba, Emplifi

Apache Spark became a standard for data processing in a big data environment. It is well integrated with the Python programming language and the integration became even more emphasized in the 3.x releases. In this hands-on workshop we will see how Spark can be used for analyzing textual data using Spark SQL along with the native package for machine learning - Spark ML. We will also explore Spark NLP which is a state-of-the-art library for natural language processing that provides machine learning and deep learning capabilities for text analysis on top of Spark.

Language Model Essentials: Pre-training, Metrics, and Community

Room 205

Nick Doiron, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Learn the essentials to train fine-tune and patch language models with the Transformers library. In this workshop we will compare accuracy of masked language models on select tasks using architectures such as BERT and T5. For generative models (such as GPT-2) we explore the options to generate text through greedy search and beam search. In the end we will cover how to participate in the open source NLP community including sharing language models on HuggingFace and/or AdapterHub.

Synthetic Data Generation for Computer Vision

Room 218

Frederick Bednar, EBCONT
Julian-Thomas Erdödy, EBCONT
Clifford Bednar, EBCONT

Collecting reliable and properly labeled image and video data in sufficient quantities denotes one of the major challenges in computer vision still preventing many projects both in research and industrial domains from seeing the light of day. In this workshop we would like to show you how to generate and use synthetic datasets with the help of game engines in order to accelerate the image annotation process. We will augment our datasets using domain randomization techniques to simulate possible variations and scenarios in the real data. Finally we will use these datasets to train a neural network and demonstrate the benefit of this approach by measuring the network’s performance against real data.

Lunch
coffee break

Explainable AI/ML (XAI) in Python

Room 103

Radovan Kavicky, GapData Institute

In this workshop led by Radovan Kavicky from Datacamp Basecamp.ai &amp; GapData Institute you will get familiar with Explainable AI (XAI) and how to implement these principles in Python. Together we will open the "black box" of machine learning where sometimes even its designers cannot fully explain why an AI/ML arrived at a specific decision and also point out differences from statistical learning. We will learn how to better design systems that imitate intelligence in transparent way and you will also get an overview of current trends in Explainable AI/ML.

Recommendation systems and user representations

Room 106

Radek Tomšů, Seznam.cz
Václav Blahut, Seznam.cz
Tomáš Nováčik, Seznam.cz
Adam Jurčík, Seznam.cz

Popularity of deep neural networks and embeddings in machine learning is transcending into the realm of recommender systems and is getting attraction within industry. Recommendation systems are used in many industries such as eCommerce social networks content providers and many more. They are improving user experience radically. In the theoretical part of the workshop we will go through different architectures of neural networks that are currently the state of the art in the recommendation domain. In the practical part we will train deep neural networks on our internal datasets and demonstrate benefits of various architectures and user features. In particular we will show how to employ a variety of user features to address the cold-start problem.

Reverse Image Search

Room 203

Jan Rus, Emplifi
Peter Jung, Emplifi

Find most similar images in the data given a reference image. We start with a simple baseline using ImageHash. Then show its limitations and proceed to a more robust solution using the latest DL models. With an adjustable threshold specifying how big differences are allowed. Along with fixes for edge-cases like completely black or white images.

Practical aspects of reinforcement learning deployment in business

Room 205

Michal Kubišta, Dataclair.ai
Petr Stanislav, Dataclair.ai

Reinforcement learning models are a new type of intelligent machine that can help you drive your car or beat you in Starcraft. Let’s say you have successfully trained your model and it works on your machine. Now how do you make it useful to your colleagues? We will of course walk you through the process of building and training such models but our work(shop) will not stop there. How do we tune the hyperparameters? How can we deploy our solutions so other people can use them (get over the phrase “it works on my PC”)? How do we monitor the performance and compare different approaches? These problems can be as complex as building a deep neural network and cause many projects to fail before ever reaching the production stage. And that’s what we want to focus on.

The Future of AI in the EU is Trustworthy

Room 218

Robert Barcik, Authentic Data Science

The realm of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence within the European Union is about to get more regulated. EU is continuing its work on its guidelines for Trustworthy AI. The guideline states that the models we build shall be lawful ethical and robust. During this workshop you will get an understanding of the essence of this regulation. On top of it we will explore and discuss how organizations and ML practitioners will need to adjust their approaches and processes to be compliant with the regulation. We will mix our discussions. On the technical side we will for example talk about the testing of ML models through techniques such as artificial alternations of the training dataset. On the less technical side we will for example uncover the necessity of adjusting for models that do not discriminate against humans unfairly.
