Opportunities in Big Data

WEBINAR OPTION AVAILABLE

IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE NOTE! In accordance with the speaker agreement for this presentation, the webinar option is available in REAL TIME ONLY. A copy of the presentation will NOT be made available after the event. Webinar commences at 6pm.

The topic of Big Data presents many challenges but also new opportunities.

The recent success of deep learning is an example of the latter, where big amounts of training data enable large artificial neural networks to achieve super-human performance on tasks such as object detection and classification.

Forward-looking companies and organisations around the world are currently massively investing in this domain.

In this seminar we will look at some relevant basic algorithmic concepts but also report on experiences and plans of our research team when navigating through a time that some people call the “Big Bang of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning”.
