Deep Learning at Booking.com: Emrah Tasli, Stas Girkin

Deep learning has been widely influential in academic research and also recently finding its way into the industry. This talk explains how we utilize deep learning techniques at the Booking.com scale and verify the value from the customers through A/B testing. Use cases go beyond image analysis towards solving a variety of regression and classification problems.

Deep learning for time series made easy: Dafne van Kuppevelt

Deep learning is a state of the art method for many tasks, such as image classification and object detection. For researchers that have time series data, but are not an expert on deep learning, the barrier can be high to start using deep learning. They developed mcfly, an open source python library, to help machine learning novices explore the value of deep learning for time series data. In this talk,

Artificial Intelligence and Economy: MIT Professor Erik Brynjolfsson

In January 2017, MIT Professor Erik Brynjolfsson explores how we can grow our prosperity through automation and AI without leaving people lacking income and meaning, such as providing universal basic income. “The technologies continue to race ahead, but there has unfortunately been a drop in business dynamism.
