Track: Machine Learning 2.0

Day of week:

Machine Learning has made our lives more productive from hailing a ride via Uber’s advanced ML-driven rider and driver matching, or Google Now predicting information you’d need before you need it. Machine learning has also made our lives safer allowing people to rent strangers’ houses via Airbnb or reducing the risk of fraud during online purchases. Recent advances in deep learning have brought more new technologies within our reach including self-driving cars, machine translation, predicting weather several years ahead, automated stock trading and more! In this track, come hear from practitioners about some interesting applications of machine learning and recent practical advances in deep learning.
