Session on "Use Cases and Risks of ML in Capital Markets" | 23rd Dec at 4pm Hi everyone! The AI and Risk Mitigation project is well underway and for the third session, we will be joined by Rachna Maheshwari, Associate Director at CRI… more
The 2023 Monsoon edition is curated by:
- Nischal HP, Vice President of Data Engineering and Data Science at Scoutbee. Nischal curated the MLOps conference which was held online between 23 and 27 July 2021.
- Sumod Mohan, Founder and CEO at AutoInfer. Sumod curated Anthill Inside 2019 edition, held in Bangalore on 23 November.
- AI and Research - covers research, findings, and solutions for challenges on building models in various areas such as fraud detection, forecasting, and analytics. This track delves into the latest methodologies for handling challenges such as large-scale data processing, distributed computing, and optimizing model performance.
- Industrial applications of ML - covers implementation of AI in the industry, with more focus on the AI models, the issues in training, gathering data so, and so forth. ML is being used at scale in industries such as automotive, mechanical, manufacturing, agriculture, and such domains. This track focuses on the challenges in this space, as we see innovation coming out of these industries in the pursuit of using ML on a second-to-second basis.
- AI and Product - covers strategies for building AI products to scale and mitigating challenges. This track provides insights on incorporating AI tools and forecasting techniques to improve model training, developing a working model architecture, and using data in the business context.
There are three phases in the lifecycle of an application - research, application and aftermath of the application.
- Assess capabilities, determining the new frontiers for AI.
- Find a use for the application.
- Learn how to run it, monitor it and update it with time.
The three tracks at the 2023 Monsoon edition of The Fifth Elephant will cover this lifecycle.
The Fifth Elephant 2023 Monsoon edition will be held in-person. Attendance is open to The Fifth Elephant members only. Purchase a membership to attend the conference in-person. If you have questions about participation, post a comment here.

Reinforcement Learning: From Games to chatGPT and Beyond
Reinforcement Learning (RL) is a subfield of machine learning that involves interacting with the environment to improve performance. Scientists have been using various games as a way to test and compare different learning and planning methods. Back in 1992, Gerry Tessauro used Reinforcement Learning to train a neural network to play Backgammon. Since then, similar techniques have been used to create agents that can play games like Chess, Go, Shogi, Diplomacy, Doom, Dota2 and Starcraft even better than humans can.
We’ll take a look at how these Reinforcement Learning algorithms have developed over time and how they’ve helped to create complex agents that can play games. I’ll share my experience of creating agents to play a collaborative cooking game called Overcooked at Unity, and the different challenges that come with training using Reinforcement Learning.
After we’ve explored how Reinforcement Learning has been used in games, we’ll discuss how it’s being used in real-world applications like Google Translate and chatGPT. We’ll also look at what the future might hold for improving the reasoning abilities of these large language models.
