Speakers & Topics

Overall theme for 2019 is data

North Star AI is focusing on data as this is the most important thing in machine learning. Algorithms and computing power is a commodity, data is not as it defines what your algorithms learn. Even in the age of big data, labelled data is a scarce resource in many ML use-cases. We know that the collection of data is difficult – challenges with privacy, quality, labelling being expensive to name a few. Yet, data gives you a competitive advantage, something that your competitors don’t have.

Topics at North Star AI range from data engineering to meta-learning with applications in speech recognition, text processing, healthcare, transportation, deliveries, music, movies, etc. You'll get a full stack overview of state of the art in machine learning and data science and meet the best and the brightest of the field.
