Opening Presentation: Reliable and Impactful AI for the Enterprise

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics are increasingly used for mission-critical applications that require accurate and error-free performance like insurance decision making, autonomous vehicles, commercial aircraft collision avoidance, the electric grid, financial transactions, healthcare, and controlling massive chemical plants.  These are applications where errors can lead to serious and catastrophic consequences.  Industry needs AI systems that are verifiable, reliable, robust against adversarial attacks, auditable, explainable, and unbiased.  Fortunately AI researchers are working on this.  This talk will describe current research on reliable AI and discuss how companies can make use of emerging solutions.

Building the ChevereBot: Data Discovery and Iteration Cycles

Interpreting and generating language is a crucial component of any artificial intelligence (AI) project, and the application of deep learning approaches, such as natural language processing (NLP), has led to many breakthroughs in the field. But the complexity of some NLP tasks requires building a custom AI solution, and this type of project is among the most challenging today within the data science discipline. In this session, we will cover the key aspects of implementing a natural language processing project within your organization and reveal the key steps necessary for making it a success. Primarily, we will focus on how to use an iterative process that can pave the way towards building a successful product.
