2:05pm: Reducing AI Bias and Optimizing Data Labeling Frameworks w/ Appen by Monchu Chen
Bias in machine learning has become a significant concern as AI technology spreads to more application domains. While some bias is a consequence of limits in design and tooling, bias in the training data itself is much more common. Skewed training data often promotes AI models that reveal discrimination and amplify human prejudices.
In this talk, we present a framework, developed at Appen, to minimize bias. This framework operates by routing data labeling tasks to the right labelers to avoid introducing bias. It also optimizes the process by determining a proper distribution of labelers for a given task.
Our speaker, Monchu Chen, will review some use cases where this framework has been applied, and discuss results that show how the optimization process minimizes skew in the training data. Chen will also discuss extending this approach to other use cases and review the implications of this work.
Monchu Chen has worked in human-computer interaction for more than two decades. He has helped corporations and startups apply user insights to product innovation in multiple application domains. Monchu now focuses on the human aspects of AI as the Principal Data Scientist for Appen's ML team, building models and systems to improve annotation quality, efficiency, and reducing AI bias. Dr. Chen holds a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University. He previously held a tenured faculty position at Carnegie Mellon Portugal and is the author of more than 70 publications and patents.
We have identified the best practices for building a best-in-class data lake. In this webinar, we will explore, advantages of cloud data lakes; Major challenges when building a data lake on the cloud; What a modern data architecture looks like and how to best implement it; How different industries leverage these best practices in real-world scenarios

FICO Webinar: Turning Your Software Platform into a Digital Transformation Launchpad
Thursday, June 4th, 2020
2pm BST / 3pm CEST / 9am EDT
Presenter: Richard Lagerweij, Business Development Lead, FICO Decision Management Solutions
To successfully complete a digital transformation—or to simply protect themselves from a digital disruption—businesses must ensure that customer-facing actions happen expeditiously. Each customer touchpoint must factor in all relevant data, reconcile all inter-implications, and produce the highest expected ROI. In an effort to create these fast, optimized customer engagements, many organizations merely network their disparate vital decision assets, which means their systems often still aren’t truly interoperable in real-time. Thus, despite substantial investments, enterprises find themselves falling behind in the digital race to attract and retain customers. Fortunately, it’s not too late to achieve lift-off.
Register for this live webinar to learn how a platform strategy will launch your business into a superior digital transformation that accomplishes all of your objectives and exceeds your ROI. Join Richard Lagerweij, FICO’s Business Development Lead for Decision Management Solutions, as he discusses how a platform approach powers the smartest, fastest, most profitable decisions.
If you have a stake in your firm’s digital strategy, you won’t want to miss what Richard has to say. Register for our webinar today!

With the rise of mobile and social technologies, customers are more knowledgeable and empowered than ever before. Their ability to access and share information gives them enormous control—and they know it.
As a result, they expect data-driven, personalized interactions at every stage of the customer experience. Frost & Sullivan research shows that one of the clearest trends in customer engagement is the shift from traditional to digital interactions. Buyers like self-service, automated channels because they want easy access to information, on their time line, from anywhere. At the same time, agents want to discard the routine tasks that lower job satisfaction and lead to boredom and churn.
AI and ML help companies leverage real-time and historical information to deliver a contextual, relevant and highly personal customer experience while improving agent morale. This webinar will show you how.

Distributed ML/AI design strategy serves as a potential solution as it solves two of the most notorious problems, performing near real time analytics on humongous high-speed data. Identify Machine Learning models and find means to integrate them in to existing Distributed computing architecture. First, since the data is large and fast paced it pushes ML closer to the source of data instead of bringing data from different sources at a central location and then applying ML. Second, it focuses on figuring out the right modelling approach combined with the right architectural design for effectively doing distributed ML processing.
Distributed ML design strategy utilises best of both the worlds, Distributed Computing and Machine Learning algorithms. It brings along the advanced analytical and mathematical reasoning capabilities of Machine Learning and combine it with efficient distributed processing in the form of a group of machines either in a Big Data cluster or over a GPU farm or steaming edge devices or over IoT devices. It is more of a design thought process that enterprises should focus on while planning to leverage Distributed ML architecture for their business problems.

Marco de Jong, Data Quality Director at PreciselyJun 9 202011:00 amUTC60 mins
Successful business initiatives today rely on higher volumes of data — from more sources than ever — processed across divergent, hybrid architectures. And, of course, the quality of that data must be trusted.
With recent studies indicating that 80% of AI and machine learning projects are failing due to data quality related issues, and most business executives don’t fully trust their data, it’s critical to think holistically about this fact. This is not a simple topic – issues in data quality can occur throughout from starting the project through to model implementation and usage.
To have confidence in decision-making, regulatory compliance and more, enterprises require data quality tools that can handle these growing and complex data sets.
Join this webinar to learn about the latest advancements in industry-leading data profiling and data quality at scale, designed specifically to meet the challenges presented by today’s data environments.
Topics to be covered include:
• Understanding and addressing critical data quality issues and requirements
• Getting insight into big data, relational, and text-based data sources for rapid understanding of your data sources
• High-scale, high-performance execution for critical data quality processes including global data enrichment and multi-domain entity resolution
• Consistent data quality processing across traditional, distributed and cloud environments
Dr. Florian Baumann, UDS CTO Dell Technologies (Specializing in Automotive and AI)Jun 9 202012:00 pmUTC60 mins
Development AI and Analytics solutions is a massively complex process, requiring management of vast data sets and data management capabilities. In turn, this leads to subsequent iterative development using algorithm performance testing against defined test cases, and development of real-time inference engines driven by deep Neural Networks via the process of Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
Innovation in algorithms, toolchains, annotation services and access to public training data sets makes it desirable to be able to participate in the development ecosystem, whilst still carefully managing security and access to highly-valuable and company confidential information.
An approach to use a scalable architecture that also offers access to multiple public cloud services at the lowest cost, with the greatest agility whilst still enabling individual companies to innovate and accelerate the process is essential to take a leading position in this market.

Through all industrial revolutions, tools and machinery have been part of workers’ realities. Only relatively recently have IoT technologies digitized these realities. When those digital streams are properly analyzed with streaming analytics and artificial intelligence and then rendered with augmented reality (AR), workers’ realities can be digitally transformed into intelligent realities. An AR headset can provide workers with the most relevant diagnostic information while keeping their hands free. On walk arounds, they can see digital twin information overlaying and annotating the physical twin; and remote experts can use virtual reality (VR) along with flat screen virtual worlds to advise the proximate workers. Regardless of the reality technology involved, intelligent realities can make work better by making workers’ realities better. This presentation furthers the intelligent reality concept developed in two papers last year, Artificial and Human Intelligence with Digital Twins and Intelligent Realities For Workers Using Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Beyond.

A fundamental need in various industries is to find underlying causal relations and use them to improve the business outlook of companies. All companies bar none would like to understand why their sales are declining, what leads customers to buy, how to improve employee motivation, where to allocate resources and what is the best competitive strategy.
The knowledge of causal relations is essential in achieving these goals. However, in most analyses, scientists draw inferences from correlation. However, correlation is not causation, and such correlative inferences can often be disastrously incorrect.
This talk covers the following:
- An insight into the data science of Causal Discovery
- How to generate causal hypotheses to determine root causes of operational situations
- How to conduct “natural experiments” to validate these hypotheses from a historical dataset
- Real-world case studies of the successful application of causal discovery in industry
