Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Will AI agents secretly plot to kill us?

In October 2016, two scientists from Google Brain published a research paper explaining how two AI managed to communicate in an encrypted way, leaving humans and other AI agents unable to decipher what they were telling each other.

More recently in February 2017, DeepMind (another Google subsidiary) presented how two AI agents that are competing in a game could develop "highly aggressive" behaviors.

I heard many people quoting these two facts, some excited, some scared, but both having no idea of what these research experiments were really about.

Far from the clickbait articles, we'll try to get a better understanding of what was the approach of the scientists, detailing the objectives and introducing Adversarial Neural Networks and Deep Reinforcement Learning principles.

  • Data Governance and The Art of the Fugue Recorded: Jun 9 2020 46 mins
    Randy Gordon, Data Governance Leader
    Elaborating on his article, "Data Governance and The Art of the Fugue," Randy will guide the audience through a layperson's explanation of what a fugue is, using J.S. Bach's The Art of the Fugue as an example, and draw parallels between its structure and that of data governance frameworks. Today’s data, in its near-infinite variety of sources and types, resembles polyphonic music such as fugues more so than homophonic music like popular songs. But combining independent melodic lines is just as difficult as understanding disparate data sets.

    Without some guidelines, the result is cacophony, when sounds combine with no rhyme or reason, and the ear hears nothing but harshly clashing noise. In the data world, we have the same situation when data lakes become data swamps, filled with in-comprehensive information not fit for any use, because of the lack of data governance.

    Randy will also explore these ideas:
    - How the subject of the fugue provides the listener guideposts similar to how metadata and lineage help analysts navigate data
    - How following the fugue "governance framework" allowed Bach to compose with enormous inventiveness while still providing his listeners a transparent structure even with many moving parts
    - How a similar approach to creating a data governance can fuel innovation

    In conclusion, Randy will demonstrate how this musical perspective can enable a rethinking of the very goal of data governance, a goal extremely relevant to the world of exploding, ever changing data we live in today.

    About the speaker:
    Randy Gordon is a data governance professional with over 10 years of experience in leadership roles in financial services. Most recently, at Moody’s, Randy established their first formal data governance program, building the data governance framework, principles, standards, and organization.
  • Melee of Data Catalog to MLOps Mechanisms: DataOps for Actionable Analytics Recorded: Jun 9 2020 50 mins
    Pragyansmita Nayak, Ph.D., Chief Data Scientist, Hitachi Vantara Federal
    The melee of raw data in the various forms of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data has its own unique challenges. Extracting the hidden nuggets of information to meet the vision and aid the strategic and tactical goals of an organization is a resonating objective of every stakeholder today. This requires a number of systematic, both synchronous and asynchronous processes and techniques to rhythmically accomplish the objectives in a transparent manner. Data driven process enablement and the resulting effective decision making starts from scratch - identification of the most relevant and related data assets, posing the business problem, determining the analytics components.

    The solution should ideally be as reusable as possible in order to aid related problems resolution down the road; aiding the knowledge growth, process automation and the effective business and data interplay. The overarching goal needs to be to complete this unique jigsaw puzzle specific to every individual organization; fitting as comfortably and seamlessly as one wants their hands to fit in a pair of gloves.

    This talk will focus on how the DataOps mechanisms such as data catalogs, data lineage and, data fusion leading to near-transparent self-service analytics and MLOps enable and enhance advanced actionable analytics outcomes.

  • The Use of Causal Discovery in Understanding the Root Causes of Business Trends Recorded: Jun 9 2020 56 mins
    Vijay Nadkarni, Vice President Artificial Intelligence, Tech Mahindra
    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

    Kuldeep Jiwani, Distinguished Architect, Data Science, Guavus, a Thales company
    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.
