Keynote Presentation: Automated Data Labeling for NLP
Labeling training data is the bottleneck most NLP teams face today. The key to unlocking transformative (e.g., 10x to 100x) speedup for NLP application development is to change the interface to labeling altogether—and move from manual labeling to programmatic labeling.
Learn how to harness the power of programmatic labeling and weak supervision techniques for automating parts of the labeling process, and leveraging a data-centric approach to AI development. In this talk you will also learn about real-world NLP use cases from Fortune 500 companies that have made the transition from manual to programmatic labeling.

Presentation: Bringing Internal Data Resources to Life with AI
Internal intelligence is one of your companies’ biggest competitive assets. A tremendous amount of information lives in PowerPoints, PDFs, videos, Word Documents and more. This data is the most difficult to extract from, yet the most valuable, as time, money and insight was spent converting data into knowledge. It’s a constant challenge to find the information when needed, especially when information is spread across repositories and geographies. Recent advances in AI-knowledge management platforms are now providing teams the capability to instantly access answers across all sources of internal knowledge and delivering businesses huge advantages from freeing up thousands of hours per year spent on searching for existing information to saving millions of dollars in redundant work.

Presentation: Delving into Speech-to-text meaning – Where do we go beyond WER
Word Error Rate (WER) is the primary quality metric for all speech providers. Engineers use it to make almost every research decision and customers use it to evaluate vendors. But it has many flaws…
Who cares about an extra um, a missing hyphen, or an alternative spelling. Or how about a difference in written numerical formatting (1,000 vs 1000 or eleven vs 11)? These all increase WER but do not affect meaning in the slightest.
How about omitting the word ‘suspected’ before murderer? Or predicting a wrong word that changes the sentiment? An ideal metric would take these minor and serious errors into account and score a system appropriately.
If you’re interested to find out how we at Speechmatics are thinking of solving this problem, then come along to the talk!

Presentation: Mindful AI at Headspace – From Impersonal Statistical Modeling to Personalized Care
Headspace is a values-first company: through 10 years of innovating the use of technology in meditation and mindfulness, the focus has never shifted from making sure that our approach to technological implementation is as mindful as our content.
Over the last year, much of that innovation has centered around ML-powered personalization: from in-app content recommendation to push notifications to AI-driven dynamic welcome flows. But implementing ML/AI solutions brings unique challenges: personalization is inherently intimate and demands great sensitivity in the ways we use and communicate member data.
In this talk, we’ll explore how Headspace balances the intimate and data-centric process of building ML solutions while maintaining our brand identity as a mindful actor.
