Speech data mining: not yet ready for retirement – Honza Černocký

    • Jazyk (language of the meetup): english
    • Datum a čas: středa 10. května 2017 od 18:30

Abstrakt: Speech data mining (that will be represented by transcription and speaker verification in this talk) is an important application of machine learning. In addition to classical ML and computer science components, it also sources other sciences such as physiology, lexicography, and phonetics, making it a funny inter-disciplinary domain. The talk will present what we are doing in the BUT Speech@FIT group, from the ML basics, through evaluations, to hot topics. We will claim that not everything in speech data mining can be bought, that R&D is still needed and that we’re not yet ready for retirement.
Bio: Honza Černocký is Associate Professor (Docent) and Head of the Department of Computer Graphics and Multimedia at the Faculty of Information Technology, Brno University of Technology (FIT BUT). He also serves as the managing director of BUT Speech@FIT research group. He participated in research internships with ESIEE Paris, France and OGI Portland, Oregon, USA. His research interests include signal processing and speech data mining (speaker and language recognition, keyword spotting and spoken term detection). He was PI and co-PI of several local, European and US-funded projects. He served as co-chair of IEEE ICASSP 2011 in Prague and co-organized ASRU 2013. As faculty member of FIT BUT, he teaches signal-processing, pattern recognition, and speech related courses. Honza co-founded Phonexia in 2006 and helped launching two other speech start-ups.

Bradford Cross – How is Machine Learning used in Fintech? Vertical AI and its Applications in the Financial Services Industry

    • Jazyk (language of the meetup): english
    • Datum a čas: středa 12. dubna 2017 od 18:30
    • Místo: Impact Hub Brno, Cyrilská 7, Brno

Abstrakt: Financial services managed to avoid broad based technology disruption for decades until around 10 years ago with the rise of a number of different fintech categories like lendingclub for P2P lending and stripe for payments.

We will start by mapping the financial services sector into banking, insurance, investments, real estate and consumer financial services and looking at machine learning applications in each.

Then we will contrast modern machine learning approaches against traditional ‘quant finance.’

Finally, we will dive into specific applications like underwriting credit and insurance, risk scoring, product and marketing, financial crimes, real estate, and some more exotic ideas like using satellite imagery to make economic predictions on earth.

GoodAI: Road to General AI (Jan Feyereisl)

    • Jazyk (language of the meetup): english
    • Datum a čas: středa 29. března 2017 od 18:30

Abstrakt: In this talk I will first give a brief overview of initiatives that we undertake at GoodAI and that we believe will speed up the search for general artificial intelligence. These include the recently launched General AI Challenge and the AI Roadmap Institute. Then, I will dive a little deeper, technically, to talk about a number of concepts and theories on the intersection of machine learning, artificial intelligence, complexity science and cognition, that have largely been ignored by the majority of the AI community, yet could offer relevant insights for building more generally intelligent machines.
O speakerovi: Jan Feyereisl is the Executive Director of the AI Roadmap Institute and a Senior Research Scientist at GoodAI. He oversees the institute’s mission to accelerate the search for safe human-level artificial intelligence by encouraging, studying, mapping and comparing roadmaps towards this goal. As a scientist at GoodAI, together with his colleagues, he is developing general artificial intelligence – as fast as possible – to help humanity and understand the universe. He has a background in machine learning and artificial intelligence and experience that spans across academia, industry and continents. Before joining GoodAI, he co-founded a quantitative investment management firm, worked at Samsung Global R&D Headquarters and as a Research Fellow at universities in the United Kingdom and South Korea.

úterý 7. února 2017 – Silnice, co vidí auta, která po ní jedou (Adam Herout)

    • Jazyk (language of the meetup): česky
    • Datum a čas: 7. února 2017 od 17:30

Abstrakt: „Lidi musí od rána do večera chodit do práce, aby si mohli koupit auto, které jim slouží k tomu, aby mohli jezdit do práce,“ řekl mi kdysi kamarád a možná na tom něco je. Doprava po silnici je tu s námi a je zdrojem radosti, úspěchu i mnohého trápení. Nemám recept, jak se toho trápení zbavit, vím ale, jak v tom trochu pomoct – zjišťovat o dopravě informace pomocí kamer. V přednášce promluvím o tom, v čem je potíž a jak s ní bojovat – pomocí strojového učení, geometrie a práce s daty.
