Welcome to the 3rd London Applied Deep Learning Meetup!
Building a successful ML project - Tom Nicholson
Machine learning is hot, and everyone wants in, from researchers, to engineers and CEOs. This collision of worlds yields a situation that has new and interesting problems of coordination, collaboration, and execution. In this talk we’ll investigate how we can set up machine learning projects to succeed, and how we all can contribute to push ML out of the lab, through industry, and into people’s lives.
Tom has worked in a number of machine learning focused startups across mobile, finance and blockchain. He has experience across the R&D spectrum from original research to delivery. He trained originally as a computer scientist, and holds a masters in machine learning from Cambridge.
Surrogate modelling: The next deep learning frontier? - Raza Habib
Raza will argue that surrogate modelling is a huge and under-appreciated opportunity for machine learning and deep learning in particular. We'll discuss when and when not to use deep learning in practice and why surrogate modelling is particularly well suited to deep learning.
Raza Habib is a PhD student at UCL supervised by David Barber, where he studies the intersection between probabilistic machine learning and Deep Learning. He is also an advisor to Monolith AI, where he helps apply machine learning to accelerate engineering design.
