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

BoF on Interpretability of ML Models
Session type: Birds of a Feather session of 1 hour Session type: BOF session of 1 hour
Complex machine learning models work very well at prediction and classification tasks but become really hard to interpret. On the other hand simpler models are easier to interpret but less accurate and hence oftentimes we are made to take a call between interpretability and accuracy.
Understand why an ML algorithm makes a particular decision which can help make better business decisions.
- Why is model interpretability important?
- Trade off between accuracy and interpretability.
- Developments in explainable AI.
- Interpret black box models, global and local interpretation.
Who should attend?
Anyone into ML and who wishes to understand blackbox(ML) decisions.
What should you know?
Basics of Machine learning and statistics.
