NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bengaluru

The eighth edition of The Fifth Elephant will be held in Bangalore on 25 and 26 July. A thousand data scientists, ML engineers, data engineers and analysts will gather at the NIMHANS Convention Centre in Bangalore to discuss:

  1. Model management, including data cleaning, instrumentation and productionizing data science.
  2. Bad data and case studies of failure in building data products.
  3. Identifying and handling fraud + data security at scale
  4. Applications of data science in agriculture, media and marketing, supply chain, geo-location, SaaS and e-commerce.
  5. Feature engineering and ML platforms.
  6. What it takes to create data-driven cultures in organizations of different scales.

Highlights:

1. Meet Peter Wang, co-founder of Anaconda Inc, and learn about why data privacy is the first step towards robust data management; the journey of building Anaconda; and Anaconda in enterprise.
2. Talk to the Fulfillment and Supply Group (FSG) team from Flipkart, and learn about their work with platform engineering where ground truths are the source of data.
3. Attend tutorials on Deep Learning with RedisAI; TransmorgifyAI, Salesforce’s open source AutoML.
4. Discuss interesting problems to solve with data science in agriculture, SaaS perspective on multi-tenancy in Machine Learning (with the Freshworks team), bias in intent classification and recommendations.
5. Meet data science, data engineering and product teams from sponsoring companies to understand how they are handling data and leveraging intelligence from data to solve interesting problems.

Why you should attend?

  1. Network with peers and practitioners from the data ecosystem
  2. Share approaches to solving expensive problems such as cleanliness of training data, model management and versioning data
  3. Demo your ideas in the demo session
  4. Join Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions to have productive discussions on focussed topics. Or, start your own Birds of Feather (BOF) session.

Birds of Feather (BOF) session: Intent classification and personalization

Submitted Jul 15, 2019

When it comes to developing a comprehensive natural language understanding system, intent classification is one of the first challenges to overcome. Without developing an understanding of the context of a text, it becomes almost impossible to interpret entities that may be recognized in later stages.
One of the main reasons intent classification is popular is also its use in achieving personalization for each user. By right suggestions at the right time, a model can work wonders on improving the user experience.
The intent (pun intended) of this BoF is to discuss user stories in developing, deploying and maintaining such detection and personalization systems.

Outline

  • Applications that may require/benefit from intent classification/personalization methods
    • Chatbots
    • Search
    • Recommendation
    • Others
  • Bias in ML
    • Bias in intent classification.
    • Fairness in ML.
  • Production war stories
  • Questions to Ask:
    • What was the first model you pushed out.

Key takeaways

  • A general overview of the field of intent classification and personalization as a bare minimum.
  • Which applications commonly benefit from these approaches, when to use them, and of-course, when not to use them.
  • Production war stories would also be shared as learning experiences.

Requirements

Who should attend?

  • People with background/interest in personalised applications and NLP, or are new to the world of personalisation/intent classification
  • People building chatbots and/or search engines, analysts working with customer reviews or user sentiments, and working on building recommendation engines.

Experience required:

  • Background in data and ML.
  • Some experience using these topics across any domain - with some level of real-world experience

Speaker bio

Facilitators:

  • Aditya Patel
  • Ishita Mathur
  • Ramanan Balakrishnan
  • Maulik Soneji
