Anthill Inside 2017

On theory and concepts in Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Formerly Deep Learning Conf.

About AnthillInside:

In 2016, The Fifth Elephant branched into a separate conference on Deep Learning. Anthill Inside is the new avataar of the Deep Learning conference.
Anthill Inside attempts to bridge the gap bringing theoretical advances closer to functioning reality. Proposals are invited for full length talks, crisp talks and poster/demo sessions in the area of ML+DL. The talks need to focus on the techniques used, and may be presented independent of the domain wherein they are applied.
We also invite talks on novel applications of ML+DL, and methods of realising the same in hardware/software.
Case studies of how DL and ML have been applied in different domains will continue to be discussed at The Fifth Elephant.

Topics: we are looking for talks covering the following:

  • Machine Learning with end-to-end application
  • Deep Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Hardware / software implementations of advanced Machine Learning and Deep Learning
  • IoT and Deep Learning
  • Operations research and Machine Learning

Format:

Anthill Inside is a two-track conference:

  • Talks in the main auditorium and hall 2.
  • Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions in expo area.

We are inviting proposals for:

  • Full-length 40-minute talks.
  • Crisp 15-minute how-to talks or introduction to a new technology.
  • Sponsored sessions, of 15 minutes and 40 minutes duration (limited slots available; subject to editorial scrutiny and approval).
  • Hands-on workshop sessions of 3 and 6 hour duration where participants follow instructors on their laptops.
  • Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions.

You must submit the following details along with your proposal, or within 10 days of submission:

  1. Draft slides, mind map or a textual description detailing the structure and content of your talk.
  2. Link to a self-record, two-minute preview video, where you explain what your talk is about, and the key takeaways for participants. This preview video helps conference editors understand the lucidity of your thoughts and how invested you are in presenting insights beyond your use case. Please note that the preview video should be submitted irrespective of whether you have spoken at past editions of The Fifth Elephant or last year at Deep Learning.
  3. If you submit a workshop proposal, you must specify the target audience for your workshop; duration; number of participants you can accommodate; pre-requisites for the workshop; link to GitHub repositories and documents showing the full workshop plan.

Selection Process:

  1. Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel.
  2. Proposers, editors and community members must respond to comments as openly as possible so that the selection processs is transparent.
  3. Proposers are also encouraged to vote and comment on other proposals submitted here.

We expect you to submit an outline of your proposed talk, either in the form of a mind map or a text document or draft slides within two weeks of submitting your proposal to start evaluating your proposal.

Selection Process Flowchart

You can check back on this page for the status of your proposal. We will notify you if we either move your proposal to the next round or if we reject it. Selected speakers must participate in one or two rounds of rehearsals before the conference. This is mandatory and helps you to prepare well for the conference.

A speaker is NOT confirmed a slot unless we explicitly mention so in an email or over any other medium of communication.

There is only one speaker per session. Entry is free for selected speakers.

We might contact you to ask if you’d like to repost your content on the official conference blog.

Travel Grants:

Partial or full grants, covering travel and accomodation are made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes) and workshops. Grants are limited, and are given in the order of preference to students, women, persons of non-binary genders, and speakers from Asia and Africa.

Commitment to Open Source:

We believe in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like for it to be available under a permissive open source licence. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licences (such as the various forms of the GPL), you should consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognise that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support the conference in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a “sponsored session”.

Important Dates:

  • Deadline for submitting proposals: July 10
  • First draft of the coference schedule: July 15
  • Tutorial and workshop announcements: June 30
  • Final conference schedule: July 20
  • Conference date: July 30

Contact:

For more information about speaking proposals, tickets and sponsorships, contact info@hasgeek.com or call +91-7676332020.

Please note, we will not evaluate proposals that do not have a slide deck and a video in them.

Making a Text-Summarizer with Keras

Submitted Jun 19, 2017

One of the common uses of Machine Learning in a lot of mobile applications is Text-Summarization. It is one of the key techniques companies are using for improving their products, or some even have complete mobile apps based on it (apps like Awesummly).

Most summarization tools in the past were Extractive, which worked well in fields like Finance, Weather forecast generator, and Medicine. In this talk, will be making a summarizer which will be Abstractive, which will be good at understanding the meaning of a piece of article, and create a short summary of it.

The aim of this talk is to provide a introduction to NLP, Semantic Analysis and Syntactic parsing, understand their working principles, and a Jupyter Notebook showcasing a working demo.

Outline

The topics covered in this talk are as follows :

  • Basics of Semantic Analysis and Syntactic Parsing
  • Tokenization
  • Word Vectors
  • GloVe (Global Vectors)

The talk will explain :

  1. how to use pre-trained word embeddings in a Keras model
  2. use it to generate an output sequence of words, given an input sequence of words using a Neural Encoder Decoder
  3. add an attention mechanism to our decoder, which will help it decide what is the most relevant token to focus on when generating new text

Requirements

Basic understanding of :

  • Python
  • NLP
  • RNNs

Speaker bio

I am a final year student, pursuing B.Tech CSE from IPU, New Delhi. I am currently working as a Data Scientist at ABinBev GAC Bangalore, India.

Over the years, I have had the work to dabble in various fields such as Game Developement, Augmented and Virtual Reality Developement and Data Science. When not hitting head-shots in CS:GO, or scoring goals in the football field, I usually like to work on building small projects or participating in various programming competitions.

I am a regular at hackathons, having won over 9 in the past year including the Grand Prize at Angelhack Delhi, 2016.
