Secondary topics:  Ethics, Privacy, and Security, Interfaces and UX
Rachel Bellamy (IBM Research), Casey Dugan (IBM Research)
Data bias is not only an AI problem; it's also a UI problem. Non-AI experts use custom application interfaces to help them make decisions based on predictions from machine learning models. These application interfaces need to be designed so that the decisions made are unbiased. Rachel Bellamy and Casey Dugan explain how to represent model predictions so that people can recognize if they are fair. Read more.
16:00–16:40 Wednesday, 10 October 2018
Location: Westminster Suite
Secondary topics:  Computer Vision, Deep Learning tools
Anmol Jagetia (
Machine learning and object recognition have matured to the point that exciting applications are now possible. Anmol Jagetia demonstrates how to create a Pokédex that uses a camera phone to recognize the Pokémon it's looking at in real time. You'll see how to gather data, prepare your dataset, tune models, and deploy it to a mobile device, using the same tech that is used in self-driving cars. Read more.
13:45–14:25 Thursday, 11 October 2018
Location: Park Suite
Chris Boyd (The Wall Street Journal), John Wiley (The Wall Street Journal)
Chris Boyd and John Wiley explain how the Wall Street Journal uses machine learning and a proprietary algorithm to predict the likelihood for someone subscribing, which in turn dictates the paywall experience that customer receives. Read more.
