Moving Beyond the Bird Brain with Augmented Intelligence
Science has shown that birds can process some elements faster than humans, but this does not make them more intelligent. By the same token, is AI that completes basic recognition tasks far faster than humans really a step forward in intelligence, or are we simply moving towards super-fast bird brains? Instead of artificial intelligence and super-fast ‘bird brains’, we should instead be moving towards Augmented Intelligence, the combination of traditional AI with cutting-edge modeling and simulation tools.

Bighead: A Framework-Agnostic, End-to-End Machine Learning Platform
Airbnb has a wide variety of ML models, and the ability to build, iterate, and maintain them is critical to its success. Many ML platforms cover data collection, feature engineering, training, deployment, and monitoring but few, if any, do all of the above seamlessly. Bighead aims to tie together various open-source and in-house projects to remove incidental complexity from ML workflows. This talk covers the architecture, the problems that each individual component and the overall system aim to solve, and a vision for the future of machine learning infrastructure. Bighead is widely adopted within Airbnb, already serving production traffic to improve search ranking, classify listing images, and detect fraudulent users. With the help of the framework, the model development time has been reduced from months to days. The project will be open sourced to allow wider community to benefit from its powerful features.

Europe’s “secret sauce” for Trustworthy AI
During the first half of 2019, the EU has developed a full-fledged strategy on Artificial Intelligence based on ethics guidelines and a renewed commitment towards sustainable policy and ambitious investment targets. What are the consequences of the new EU policy for AI developers? What are the likely next steps? Will the EU agenda lead to new forms of sovereignty and protectionism in the global governance of data and digital technologies? Andrea Renda, one of the members of the EU High Level Expert Group on AI, guides the audience through the opportunities and risks of the new EU agenda.
