Event description

Description

Welcome to the third annual Women in Data Science conference on Thursday, April 4, 2019.

SCHEDULE

The day will be split into two parts, please select your ticket based on the portions you plan to attend. The event is free, but tickets are limited so we appreciate you updating your RSVP if you know you won't be able to attend :)


MORNING: HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS (9:00 - 13:00)
Our workshop hosts

Choose one from three hands-on workshops and start applying machine learning to real world problems:

  • Reinforcement Learning in a Nutshell - Ning Zhou (Microsoft)

In the "Reinforcement Learning in a nutshell" tutorial, we will walk you through the core ideas behind reinforcement learning - how reward functions, how it has developed from the classical dynamic programming to the modern algorithms used by Deepmind AlphaGo. You will also get your hands dirty and build a smart agent with reinforcement learning for an Atari game.

  • Build an Anomaly Detection Model using Deep Learning - Kristin Hornæs (Arundo)

Equipment failure in heavy industry (maritime, oil and gas, mining...) accounts for millions of dollars in downtime and repairs annually. Identifying failures in these equipment can be difficult due to low number of failures and disparate data sets. Anomaly detection is often used to begin understanding the outliers within the dataset and if they are indicative of failure.

In this workshop, we will explore the difference between deep learning (including auto encoders) and traditional machine learning techniques (including Isolation Forests and Support Vector Machines) in identifying anomalies on engine sensor data.

  • Building a Data Analytics Model - Que Tran and Rebecca Seyfarth (Cognite)

Today we hear about Machine Learning applications in the consumer world quite often: from estimating traffic on our way to work to smart recommendations based on our past behavior and interests. However, in asset-heavy business-to-business industries, Machine Learning is still a bit of a buzzword. In this workshop, we’ll show you an example of how the Oil & Gas industry is currently using Machine Learning and you will learn how to build your own data analytics model. We’ll show how to build a model to estimate the output pressure of a suction cooler from input flow rate, input pressure, and input temperature.


AFTERNOON: SPEAKERS FROM THE INDUSTRY (13:00 - 17:00)


We are excited to welcome six industry professionals to share their stories with us. More information on the talks will come soon.


EVENING: DINNER & NETWORKING (17:00 - 19:00)

Join us for dinner and networking.
