The WhyR Conference was held in Warsaw in 2019. I enjoyed the workshops and keynotes on Natural Language Processing (NLP), geocomputation, spatial analysis, random forests, text analysis, quanteda, data scientist's responsibilities
AI will transform the insurance sector. Two techniques that will have the biggest impact are convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and recurrent neural networks (RNNs). The 3rd key to successful AI implementation: productionization
CTO Marek Rogala created a convolutional neural network that can recognize certain animals in images. He used state of the art architecture and transfer learning to build a model quickly and with a relatively small dataset.
