  • What’s Fair in Fair Machine Learning? Jun 17 2021 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Grant Fleming, Data Scientist at Elder Research
    Recent highly publicized failures in machine learning, and analytics more generally, have shown that biases or unfairness in data can sneak into, and be magnified by, our models, leading to harmful, incorrect predictions being made once the models are deployed into the real world. While the problems themselves are becoming apparent, many questions remain around how fairness should be defined in a data science context, whether it can be quantified, and how concerns for it should be integrated into existing analytics pipelines.

    In this talk, we will present a framework for better understanding how issues of fairness overlap with analytics as well as how we can improve our analytics pipelines to make them more interpretable, reproducible, and fair to the groups that they are intended to serve.
  • Obtain trustworthy AI solutions for enterprise with more transparency Jun 17 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Guillaume Hervé, CEO, Co-Founder at Zetane Systems Inc.
    Commercial application of the subdomain of AI known as machine learning is in a state of solid growth, where interest in applying the technology within new domains is at an all-time high. Though demand is great, studies demonstrate that over 85% of AI projects do not make it to production and lack management buy-in. One main reason is that our abilities to understand the technology remain at an early stage of development and this inhibits the broader application of “mysterious black-box algorithms” in society. Here we describe our tactics to overcome this challenge by providing machine learning practitioners and data scientists with software tools that provide greater transparency and more intuitive visuals of machine learning models. In addition to providing means to streamline the production of AI products, detailed visuals with rich analytics provided by our next-generation of software tools open new strategies to understand, explain, test and audit machine learning products. Tailored to a general audience of technology professionals and enterprise business leaders, the chief executive officer of Zetane will demonstrate these visuals of AI and our software tools during the discussion. Additional topics covered will include how Zetane leverages open-source standards to promote innovation in machine learning and the company’s recent patent of an innovation that helps power unique features of software and hardware used in the field. Audience members will have the opportunity to download the free software demoed in this presentation so they too can view the internal workings of popular machine learning models used in research and enterprise.

  • AI in Fintech: The New Digital Customer Experience Recorded: Apr 14 2021 63 mins
    Elena Kozhemyakina, Fintech4Funds | Labhesh Patel, Jumio | Chris Leong, Leong Solutions | Amnah Ajmal, Mastercard
    Legacy financial services institutions consistently see big Tech as a competitive threat. The highly-scaled, AI-driven method of creating and nurturing client relationships seems to be the antithesis of what high-touch, relationship-driven investors pride themselves on.

    However, the industry is already moving in this direction; with Charles Schwab’s purchase of TD Ameritrade and Morgan Stanley’s purchase of E*TRADE, we see action towards improving today’s digital experience. This is what consumers expect, and where the profits lie - research found by the World Economic Forum highlights that the industry is moving towards an era of self-driving finance, where returns are not owned by those who invest client money, but by those who own the customer’s experience.

    So how can FS companies across the board view the digital client experience as a strategic advantage?

    Join this discussion as we explore:
    - What the digital customer experience encompasses
    - How AI and automation can help you focus on deepening your relationships
    - How AI can help streamline back-end operations

    Speakers:

  • Locate your BI - Modern practices for Big Geo-Data Analytics Recorded: Mar 18 2021 52 mins
    Jérémie Farret, Vice President Advanced Analytics and A.I., Inmind Technologies
    Geographics Information Systems (GIS) and Big Data have known an accelerated convergence of late, each technology multiplying the potential of the other.
    This trend is enabling new Analytics and Big Data Management practices, whether it finds itself accelerated by novel approaches, services, hardware, platforms, or allows for brand new applications
    In this context, we will first look at the new concepts underlying Big Geo-Data Analytics, whether it concerns the addition of Smart City infrastructure, the omnipresence of mobility and what it means for Track and Trace and Multi Sensing applications for the mass market and for industry and commercial applications, and the new requirements that applications must respect with respect to fraud, and cyberattacks, with new regulations applying to businesses in terms of protection of the personal information.
    Then we will consider the technologies supporting these new advancements in Big Geo-Data Analytics, namely : Massive Data coming from new generations of IoT, Smart Cities, and the acceleration technologies enabling and supporting them such as GPU accelerated and / or in-memory databases, Fog & Edge Analytics, Artificial Intelligence including Fog & Edge AI, the different uses of Blockchain for geolocated information and in particular Proof of Location, and the particular place of Big Geo-Data Analytics for Machine Data Analytics combined with Geo IP.
    Finally, we will look into industry use cases of these different new practices in Big Geo-Data Analytics, along with the architectures and infrastructures supporting them, in 3 real life use cases in the industry which are supported by the Mind in a Box integrated solution : Geotracking and proof of location for the transport of dangerous materials and the place of AI automation for it, real time track and trace for field operations, GeoIP and geo-fencing for cybersecurity and the place of Artificial Intelligence to extend SIEM capabilities.

  • BCBS 239 - Tempting Example or Cautionary Tale for Non-Banks? Recorded: Mar 18 2021 40 mins
    Dr. Walter Mickel, Head of Subsidiary Frankfurt, jambit GmbH, Germany
    The Bank of International Settlement introduced the regulation proposal BCBS 239 for improved risk data aggregation capabilities for banks. It comprises 11 principles how risk data aggregation and reporting shall be organised and technically set up.

    The financial crisis has shown that banks had huge difficulties to report their risk positions accurately and timely to the regulators. For a rather long period of time during the peak of the crisis it remained unclear how much the banking system suffered from specific systemic risks.

    Since the publication 2013 banks are working to comply with BCBS 239. A progress report has shown that no significant bank in Europe was fully compliant by mid 2020 while most institutes had reported good progress on most of the goals apart from data architecture and IT infrastructure. However the new capabilites for the banks looked so tempting that the vast majority extended the scope of their BCBS 239 projects to benefit also in other fields of the 11 principles defined by BCBS 239.

    So what is so tempting by BCBS 239 and what hampers banks from reaching compliance? In this talk I will give a brief overlook of how banks appoached the transformation. It will be shown how non-banks can profit from spirit of principles while avoiding the pitfalls. Further I will talk about architecture used for banks and which tooling concepts works best for non-banks.

  • Explainable AI is not Enough for Auto Insurance during Covid Recorded: Mar 17 2021 40 mins
    Prof. Zehra Cataltepe, Co-Founder & CEO TAZI.AI, Serdar Birlikci, CIO of Groupama Turkey
    Wider usage of AI models brought the need for them being unbiased. While explainable AI makes AI models more understandable, most Explainable AI approaches make AI understandable only for data scientists. On the other hand, insurance underwriters and claims experts also need to understand how AI behaves so that they can trust it and include it in their daily business actions. In addition to being understandable by business, AI models need to be updateable by business and easy to use and continuous learning.
    During this webinar, CEO & Co-Founder Prof. Zehra Cataltepe and Groupama CIO Serdar Birlikci go through how an easy, understandable, understanding and continuous learning AI could enable customer retention to be solved with an agile team of business experts in insurance.
  • Addressing Business Challenges with Enterprise Analytics Recorded: Mar 17 2021 49 mins
    Rebecca Kelly, Technical Evangelist, KX
    Neural networks were originally conceived in 1943 but were largely put aside until the advent of sufficiently capable computing power to run these networks in the 1970's - we face the same challenge today but with data. Many organizations lack the capabilities to handle and combine the data they have in-house already to drive real business changing decisions, so how can they hope to be prepared for the future deluge of data that the growing connected world is bringing? Increasing automation of decision making (via event driven processing) and fierce competition within most industries is driving us all to make more decisions faster, if not instantaneously - a mirroring of the phenomenon that occurred within Wall Street with the advent of High Frequency Trading 25 years ago.

    Today, that same millisecond half-life value of data is prevalent across industries and much disruption can be oversimplified to increasing timeliness of insights from data. While in the past on Wall Street, this could be solved by paying to have a server located physically closer to data feed, the future of many industries brings the promise of a new problem where the required data is distributed. In this brave new world the timeliness of your entire data pipeline will ultimately determine the level of intelligent decision making you can apply. Attend the talk to see why as with the past, present and future - "it's about time".
