  • From Bytes to AI: Why it's all about the data lifecycle ACCESS PLUS Dan Chester  |   Pure Storage   |   Access Plus: AI & Analytics

    Access Plus: AI & Analytics Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 11:00 to 11:30

    From Bytes to AI: Why it's all about the data lifecycle

    Advances in deep neural networks have ignited a new wave of algorithms and tools for data scientists to tap into their data with artificial intelligence (AI).

    - With improved algorithms, larger data sets, and frameworks such as TensorFlow, data scientists are tackling new use cases like autonomous driving vehicles and natural language processing.

    Data is the heart of modern deep learning algorithms.

    - Before training can even begin, the hard problem is collecting the labeled data that is crucial for training an accurate AI model. Then, a full scale AI deployment must continuously collect, clean, transform, label, and store larger amounts of data. Adding additional high quality data points directly translates to more accurate models and better insights.

    The goal of this session is to describe and make sense of all of the different ways that data engineers and data scientists ingest, process, and use data in a deep learning system, and then to focus on how a data architect can design the storage infrastructure to power a production AI pipeline.

  • Hello World: how to be human in the age of the machine Dr Hannah Fry   |   UCL  |   Keynote Theatre

    Keynote Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 11:40 to 12:10

    Hello World: how to be human in the age of the machine

    Would you trust an algorithm to send someone to jail? Or to diagnose someone with cancer? How about an algorithm that analysed your friendships to calculate if you were reliable enough to take out a loan? These aren’t hypothetical questions about our distant future. We’re already living in the age of the algorithm. A world where machines rule supreme – making the important decisions in healthcare, transport, finance and security. They’re telling us what to watch, where to go even who to send to prison. So how much should we rely on them to know what’s best? And can we trust them over our own judgement? In this talk, we’ll go on a tour of the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the algorithms that surround us. We’ll lift the lid on their inner workings, demonstrate their power, expose their limitations, and examine whether they really are an improvement on the humans they are replacing.

  • Bias in AI is more dangerous than killer robots ACCESS PLUS Charlotte Han  |   NVIDIA Corporation  |   Access Plus: AI & Analytics

    Access Plus: AI & Analytics Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 12:20 to 12:50

    Bias in AI is more dangerous than killer robots

    We are increasingly trusting algorithms to make decisions: from finding the optimal driving route to hiring the best talents, automated decision-making is supposed to optimize our lives. The potential for AI to improve our lives and boost economy is huge, but algorithms built by humans and datasets selected may be laced with human cognitive bias. In this talk, we will explore how data and algorithms could go wrong, and the possible solutions to rid biases. It's not general AI we should worry about now - bias in AI is already impacting our lives and is a more pressing issue.
