How we applied sampling algorithms to extract meaning from data (@ Belong.co)

Submitted Nov 7, 2019

A lot of unsupervised learning algorithms work by inferencing parameters of generative models through Monte Carlo techniques. In this talk, we will go into details of the underlying inference algorithms that use sampling techniques and then proceed step-by-step applying it to couple of real world problems, particularly some of our work at Belong that we recently published at ICDAR‘19. The attendees, in addition to learning inferencing algorithms (such as Gibbs sampling) and various probabilistic models (Dirichlet, Wishart distributions, etc), will get a glimpse of how to model real world problems, apply ML algorithms and work through the practical challenges that are encountered while building a high quality data science product / solution.

Generative models => Basic idea of sampling algorithms to inference parameters => Simple example using Gibbs sampling => Application to a more complex problem of resume understanding at Belong.co
