Techweek 2018 - Commercial Applications of Machine Learning

AI is in the news almost daily, alternating between apocalyptic and utopian claims. In this talk, Peter will talk about and demonstrate how such techniques can be employed in the commercial environment to draw insights through predictive models.

Peter will also talk about how an initiative under the umbrella of the PlantTech research organization will develop a new web-based platform to make it easier for SMEs to take advantage of deep learning techniques much more rapidly.

There will be a $26 dinner served as well as a cash bar.

5:30pm start for networking, presentation will start at 6pm

Guest Speaker and Topic

Peter Reutemann, Senior Research Programmer

Peter Reutemann has over 15 years of experience in research and development in machine learning. HE started with Java-based research projects at the University of Waikato (semi-supervised learning, gas-chromatography mass-spectrometry data processing), but switched to commercially-focused applications of machine learning several years ago. As an open-source proponent and developer, he contributes to a range of projects, but mainly works on the ADAMS workflow platform (Java, open-source) which allows for rapid application development and easy integration into business processes.
