Solving Real-World Problems with Machine Learning


In much of the 21st century, we have seen how machine learning is being used by virtually every fortune 500 company. But do we know how it is used? Is it a tool? Is it a template? Is it design, concept or a way of thinking? Or is it all in one coming together to solve problems in the world - but, one at a time?

In this webinar, we showcase how we are solving the problem of identifying false positives in money laundering alerts, and optimizing them with machine learning. But machine learning takes a backseat, although it is the kernel of the entire solution we focus on how a real-world problem, with steps, is solved from end-to-end.

  • The State of Responsible AI in 2020 Dec 8 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Featured Speaker: Brandon Purcell, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research & Ben Cox, Director of Product Marketing at H2O.ai
    In tandem with the rapid adoption and excitement around Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, there has been a sub-sector of data science that has been growing at a rapid rate, Responsible AI. One of the early criticisms of machine learning models was that they were inherently "black-box" or too opaque for users to understand why models were coming to the conclusions that they were. The goal of Responsible AI has been to create new more transparent methods, develop post-hoc explanations for ML models, and define frameworks that will minimize potential risk or lack of understanding in AI systems.

    This field has been growing rapidly and there are many different ideas from practitioners, in this webinar, Benjamin Cox of H2O.ai and featured speaker, Brandon Purcell of Forrester, will discuss their current views on the state of Responsible AI in 2020.

  • The Conversation that is Key to AI Success Dec 3 2020 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ellen Friedman PhD, Technical Evangelist at H2O.ai
    What makes the biggest difference to AI success? New and better algorithms? More trained data scientists? More data?

    All these factors are important, but it turns out that the thing that makes the biggest difference to AI success is this: aiming AI at the right business goal. To make that happen, it’s necessary to have an effective conversation between data scientists and non-data scientists who have expert domain knowledge – and the biggest group of domain experts turn out to be business people, with the specific and valuable understanding of how their business works. But can domain experts talk to data scientists, and can data scientists communicate with them?

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - Why the conversation between data scientists and non-data scientists matters
    - How to build the skills necessary to have that conversation
    - Examples from real world use cases about putting AI into the right business context

  • How to Detect Fraud Quicker with AI Recorded: Oct 1 2020 61 mins
    Ashrith Barthur, Principal Security Scientist at H2O.ai
    Electronic Fraud is prevalent in almost every walk of life these days. The directions in which society is moving forward, monetary instruments are only going to get more digital, and transactions are only going to get more electronic. In this almost-exponential growth fraudsters have a leg up. This is because legacy systems that are fighting are old, and have not accounted for newer fraudulent behaviors. While the new systems with ML models could be accurate but slow. For one to catch fraud in an acceptable time, the systems have to be fast and quickly modifiable to changing fraudulent methods.

    In this talk, we speak about different methods which can make your AI systems faster, and valuable toward identifying fraud. These systems also maintain a high level of accuracy.

    Some of these methods that we would discuss are:
    - Different ways of implementing the models
    - Variations in hyper-parameters of models
    - Highly accurate features that are valuable that are modifiable

    At the end of this webinar you would be able to understand how to:
    - Build better features for fraud
    - How to build models and model implementations to speed up the decision

  • Responsible Automation: Towards Interpretable & Fair AutoML Recorded: Aug 13 2020 61 mins
    Erin LeDell, Chief Machine Learning Scientist at H2O.ai
    Automatic Machine Learning (AutoML) is a subfield of machine learning which aims to automate the training & tuning of machine learning models. One of the main goals of an AutoML tool is to train the “best” model possible in the least amount of computation time, with zero/minimal configuration by the user. AutoML tools reduce the expertise required for practitioners to train powerful machine learning models, which has expanded and accelerated the application of machine learning to problems in both academic research and industry. AutoML greatly speeds up the workflow and efficiency of even the most experienced data scientist.

    As automation and use of machine learning increases, in particular with the proliferation of open source AutoML tools, there’s an increased risk in misuse of, or harm by, machine learning models used in real world applications. In order to reduce the risk of harmful models being deployed, machine learning tools, and especially AutoML tools, can offer easy-to-use or automated interpretability and algorithmic fairness methods that can be used to evaluate and probe machine learning models. Interpretability and fairness methods should always be applied to machine learning models before they are deployed into production where they can make or influence important decisions affecting people’s lives.

    In this session, you will learn about:

    - Automated Machine Learning and open source H2O AutoML
    - Interpretability methods for H2O models
    - Algorithmic fairness (disparate impact) for H2O models
    - Demo using U.S. Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data
  • From GLM to GBM: The Future of AI in Lending and Insurance Recorded: Aug 6 2020 62 mins
    Patrick Hall, Advisory Consultant at H2O.ai and Michael Proksch, Senior Director, Customer Data Science at H2O.ai
    Insurance and credit lending are highly regulated industries that have relied heavily on mathematical modeling for decades. In order to provide explainable results for their models, data scientists and statisticians in both industries relied heavily on generalized linear models (GLMs). However, new machine learning algorithms like GBMs are not only more sophisticated estimators of risk, but due to a Nobel-laureate breakthrough known as Shapley values, they are now seemingly just as interpretable as traditional GLMs. More nuanced risk estimation means less payouts and write-offs for policy and credit issuers, but it also means a broader group of customers can participate in mainstream insurance and credit markets.

    In this webinar, you will learn about:
    - The Advantages of Machine Learning vs. Linear Models
    - Why you should think about the AI shift in perspective
    - How to move to new ML Methods (e.g. GBM)
