  • Image recognition with deep learning
    Image recognition with deep learning Layla Tadjpour, Data Science Consultant, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Southern California. Recorded: Oct 11 2017 39 mins
    In this webinar, we will learn about image recognition with deep learning. After a brief overview of what deep learning is, and why it matters, we will learn how to classify dogs from cats. That is, how to train a model to recognize dog images from cat images.

    We use Keras, an easy to use python deep learning library that sits on top of Tensorflow, and “fine-tuning”, a very important skill for any deep learning practitioner, to train a model to classify the images.

    Once we trained our model to classify dogs from cats images with high accuracy, we dig into the details of the trained model and look at its building blocks, i.e., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Fully Connected Block and activation functions to develop an understanding of how the deep learning model works.

They’ve skyrocketed from 550 to over 2,000 employees and made 387 hires through proactive sourcing, including 110 hard-to-fill roles.

    What’s more? They've doubled their candidate response rate to cold outreach from 21 to 42 percent since rolling out Lever Nurture.

    Want to know the secrets behind their unprecedented success? On October 10th, Recruiting Researcher Jess Verbruggen will share the outreach tactics that actually pique the interest of candidates, and ultimately lead to monumental growth.

    Join us to learn:
    - Why Shopify knew they had to prioritize proactive sourcing in the first place
    - How they advocated to build a team of recruiting researchers who specialize in sourcing
    - Concrete steps to increase your response rate to cold outreach

  • 451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security
    451 Research & Gemalto Present "Alphabet Soup: Deciphering Multi-Cloud Security Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst at 451 Research and Michael Gardiner, Security Lead for CTO office, Gemalto Oct 19 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The cloud provides organizations with elasticity and speed and by 2018 60% of an enterprises’ workloads will run in the cloud says 451 Research. The amount of business operations running in the cloud means organizations have more cloud computing service providers, with a typical enterprise having roughly six. This requires companies to develop and implement a multi-cloud strategy, especially when it comes to security. But each CSP has its own security offerings and integrations sometimes making the process confusing and complex. Even prior to the cloud, encryption and key management have presented challenges for many organizations, but with encryption becoming ubiquitous – a strong key management strategy is key. This is especially important with industry mandates and government regulations like European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and U.S state data breach disclosure laws.

    In this joint webinar with 451 Research, we will cover topics including:

    -Building a multi-cloud security strategy for encryption and key management
    -Best practices, benefits and pitfalls of managing your own security
    -Impact of regulations on data protection in the next few years
    -Understanding the different CSP requirements for key management:

You will see how vSAN ReadyNodes and ThinkAgile VX will help re-engineer Enterprise IT to be flexible and responsive, enabling more time delivering business value rather than integrating IT infrastructure.
  • Bias in the Web
    Bias in the Web Ricardo Baeza-Yates, CTO, NTENT; ACM Fellow; IEEE Fellow Oct 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Web is the most powerful communication medium and the largest public data repository that humankind has created. Its content ranges from great reference sources such as Wikipedia to ugly fake news. Indeed, social (digital) media is just an amplifying mirror of ourselves. Hence, the main challenge of search engines and other websites that rely on web data is to assess the quality of such data. However, as all people have their own biases, web content, as well as our web interactions, are tainted with many biases.

    Data bias includes redundancy and spam, while interaction bias includes activity and presentation bias. In addition, sometimes algorithms add bias, particularly in the context of search and recommendation systems. As bias generates bias, we stress the importance of de-biasing data as well as using the context and other techniques such as explore & exploit, to break the filter bubble.

    The main goal of this talk is to make people aware of the different biases that affect all of us on the Web. Awareness is the first step to be able to fight and reduce the vicious cycle of bias.

    Ricardo Baeza-Yates areas of expertise are web search and data mining, information retrieval, data science, and algorithms. He is CTO of NTENT, a semantic search technology company based in California, USA since 2016. Before, he was VP of Research at Yahoo Labs, based first in Barcelona, Spain, and later in Sunnyvale, California, from January 2006 to February 2016. He also is part time Professor at DTIC of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, Spain, as well as at DCC of Universidad de Chile in Santiago.
