Welcome to AI Monday in Berlin

Since September 2018 #aimonday also takes place in Berlin. This is only natural as a Start-up capital and with 54% of all German AI companies the fourth largest global AI hub. Since then AI Monday happens every 5-6 weeks at changing locations.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to one of the next AI Monday Berlin – as guest or speaker.

Event Details

What?

Four crisp presentations incl. Q&A. Some speaker also demo their AI solutions. Followed by snacks, drinks and networking.

Who?

AI curious people, change leaders, businesses with passion for data and disruption.

Why?

Share AI-knowledge, exchange and encourage each other on our change journeys.

Yoda: Scaling Machine Learning @ Careem

At Careem, every day, our platform solves different challenging problems affecting the lives of our users across 120+ cities. Each of these problems requires a local and optimized solution. This emphasizes a strong need for A.I. In this talk, you will be walked through the journey of building our machine learning platform and the challenges addressed while trying to build a scalable, usable and cost-efficient platform that facilitates democratizing Machine Learning usage across different teams.

Security in an AI-driven environment

The rise of AI products has enabled new attack surfaces for malicious actors, one must not just see AI’s benefits for the customer, but take care to secure AI products from attacks. For example, an auto-complete trained on customer’s texts could learn a customer’s bank details, and a clever attacker could trick the AI into revealing that personal information. I will give high level examples of common attacks (training data extraction, data poisoning, adversarial examples…), discuss defense strategies. We’ll conclude by imagining a world where the tables are turned and the user is benevolent and the algorithms designers have malicious intent.

Real life business problems to solve with ML – the good, the bad and the ugly

More and more business start using Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to automate processes, gain insights or enrich their business model. As a ML agency Deep Neuron Lab helps companies generate value from their data by building tailored ML solutions. In doing so we gained our fair share of experience both on cases that are fun to work on and cases that are not. Based on three cases the talk will give a short overview of what a ML project needs to succeed. The cases are three real life projects we encountered – a good one, a bad one and an ugly one.

Data Quality in Machine Learning Production Systems

Machine learning (ML) algorithms have become a standard technology in production software systems. This imposes new challenges onto the maintainers of software systems featuring ML components. While classical software systems can be tested before being put into production, such testing is difficult for machine learning systems: depending on the data ingested during training or prediction phase the behaviour of a system that learns from data can be different. Thus ensuring robust and reliable functioning of ML systems requires careful monitoring and improvements of various data quality aspects, which can be difficult to automate. This talk summarizes some recent work on leveraging ML technology for automating the measurement and improvement of data quality problems for ML production systems.
