Last night, we had a blast with four different presentations at the Paris Machine Learning Meetup #10.
Brenda McCowan talked to us about the very difficult problem of making sense of something for which we basically don't know anything, unsupervised learning at its hardest. Philippe Nieuwbourg provided a bird's eye view of what Big Data entailed with several examples that included fashion among other. Gabriel Synnaeve described ConvNets and a cool demo of a 30 frame per second classification algo (OverFeat) and finally Guillaume Palacios described to us how the D-Wave computer might be something of interest beyond PR. Thank you to the speakers for the four thought-provoking presentations. Thank you also to the sponsors and partners, namely: TheFamily, HopWork and DojoCrea/DojoEvents.
More detailed comments will come later in the blog, here are the four presentations slides in English:
- Brenda McCowan, Unraveling Dolphin Communication Complexity, Past approaches and next steps (YouTube video is here)
- Philippe Nieuwbourg, How to transform data into dollars…
- Gabriel Synnaeve, Convolutional Neural Networks 101
- Guillaume Palacios, The D-Wave “Quantum Computer” Myths and Realities
