Jul 6, 2018 · Minato, Japan

*Decoded is dedicated to people who are purely interested in AI
*Our seats are limited and we hope that members who truly enjoy the art of AI have access to this event
*This event is free of charge
1) Come to Roppongi Hills Mori Tower Building Main Entrance (Decoded desk) to get access pass
2) The reception desk opens at 18:30 and closes at 19:30. You CANNOT enter the building after 19:30. Please make sure to get there in time! (The event starts at 19:00)
3) We have a guest list. If we don't have your name, you cannot enter the building!

Decoded #2 is coming up! Let's get together and discuss one of the most complex problems around Deep Reinforcement Learning. We have exciting speakers every time!
Enjoy pizza and drinks after the talks :)

Fred Almeida (Chief Architect / Founder of Ascent Robotics)
Naoki Shibuya (Research Engineer / Ascent Robotics)
Herve Audren (Robotics Engineer / Ascent Robotics)
Benjamin Smith (ML Engineer / Co-founder of AISCANtech)


*Naoki Shibuya (Research Engineer / Ascent Robotics)*
Reinforcement Learning with World Models

*Herve Audren (Robotics Engineer / Ascent Robotics)*
[Robot Major League]
Although robotic baseball is not yet a thing, in this talk we will try to build a pitching robot. Leveraging both optimal control and reinforcement learning, we will construct, workshop-style, the necessary elements to bring the application to life

*Benjamin Smith (ML Engineer / Co-founder of AI Scan tech)*
AI Scan Tech which is a receipt scanning OCR technology for point of sale receipts, currently targeting US and European receipts. Take a
high resolution picture of a receipt and the API will return all the elements as structured text and numbers. The system was built using Python, Keras and Tensorflow, it utilizes a pipeline of CNNs and AWS GPU P2 instances.
- Overview of AI Scan Tech
- Overview of the receipt OCR model pipeline
- Overview of challenges faced in receipt OCR
Generative Adversarial Networks
- Introduction
- Network Architecture
- Various Types of GAN
- Using GANs in receipt OCR
- Results of Experiments
- Other use cases for GANs
- Recommended libraries, repos and papers to get started

Event organizers
  • Decoded

    Decoded is an event held by Ascent Robotics, a leading AI startup developing a full stack self-driving vehicle and intelligent robotics.  At our event you can meet the AI researchers and engineers from a range of domains that are changing the face of Japan. Decoded is held bi-monthly and will give you the chance to hear cutting-edge thinking in ML and DRL across a number of domains.  We will even touch on Quantum AI!   The presentations have  wide level of complexity and some math may be needed to understa
