When deciding on a machine learning conference, why go to Machine Learning Week 2020? This five-conference event May 31 June 4, 2020 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas delivers brand-name, cross-industry, vendor-neutral case studies purely on machine learnings commercial deployment, and the hottest topics and techniques. In this video, Predictive Analytics World Founder Eric Siegel spills on the details and lists five reasons this is the most valuable machine learning event to attend this year.

Note: This article is based on the transcript of a special episode of The Dr. Data Show click here to view.

In this article, I give five reasons that Machine Learning Week May 31 June 4, 2020 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas is the most valuable machine learning event to attend this year. MLW is the largest annual five-conference blow-out part of the Predictive Analytics World conference series, of which I am the founder.

First, some background info. Your business needs machine learning to thrive and even just survive. You need it to compete, grow, improve, and optimize. Your team needs it, your boss demands it, and your career loves machine learning.

And so we bring you Predictive Analytics World, the leading cross-vendor conference series covering the commercial deployment of machine learning. By design, PAW is where to meet the whos who and keep up on the latest techniques.

This June in Vegas, Machine Learning Week brings together five different industry-focused events: PAW Business, PAW Financial, PAW Industry 4.0, PAW Healthcare, and Deep Learning World. This is five simultaneous two-day conferences all happening alongside one another at Caesars Palace in Vegas. Plus, a diverse range of full-day training workshops, which take place in the days just before and after.

Machine Learning Week delivers brand-name, cross-industry, vendor-neutral case studies purely on machine learning deployment, and the hottest topics and techniques.

This mega event covers all the bases for both senior-level expert practitioners as well as newcomers, project leaders, and executives. Depending on the topic, sessions and workshops are either demarcated as the Expert/practitioner level, or for All audiences. So, you can bring your team, your supervisor, and even the line-of-business managers you work with on model deployment. About 60-70% of attendees are on the hands-on practitioner side, but, as you know, successful machine learning deployment requires deep collaboration between both sides of the equation.

PAW and Deep Learning World also takes place in Germany, and Data Driven Government takes place in Washington DC but this article is about Machine Learning Week, so see predictiveanalyticsworld.com for details about the others.

Here are the five reasons to go.

Five Reasons to Go to Machine Learning Week June 2020 in Vegas

1) Brand-name case studies

Number one, youll access brand-name case studies. At PAW, youll hear directly from the horses mouth precisely how Fortune 500 analytics competitors and other companies of interest deploy machine learning and the kind of business results they achieve. More than most events, we pack the agenda as densely as possible with named case studies. Each day features a ton of leading in-house expert practitioners who get things done in the trenches at these enterprises and come to PAW to spill on the inside scoop. In addition, a smaller portion of the program features rock star consultants, who often present on work theyve done for one of their notable clients.

2) Cross-industry coverage

Number two, youll benefit from cross-industry coverage. As I mentioned, Machine Learning Week features these five industry-focused events. This amounts to a total of eight parallel tracks of sessions.

Bringing these all together at once fosters unique cross-industry sharing, and achieves a certain critical mass in expertise about methods that apply across industries. If your work spans industries, Machine Learning Week is one-stop shopping. Not to mention that convening the key industry figures across sectors greatly expands the networking potential.

The first of these, PAW Business, itself covers a great expanse of business application areas across many industries. Marketing and sales applications, of course. And many other applications in retail, telecommunications, e-commerce, non-profits, etc., etc.

The track topics of PAW Business 2020

PAW Business is a three-track event with track topics that include: analytics operationalization & management i.e., the business side core machine learning methods and advanced algorithms i.e., the technical side innovative business applications covered as case studies, and a lot more.

PAW Financial covers machine learning applications in banking including credit scoring insurance applications, fraud detection, algorithmic trading, innovative approaches to risk management, and more.

PAW Industry 4.0 and PAW Healthcare are also entire universes unto themselves. You can check out the details about all four of these PAWs at predictiveanalyticsworld.com.

And the newer sister event Deep Learning World has its own website, deeplearningworld.com. Deep learning is the hottest advanced form of machine learning with astonishing, proven value for large-signal input problems, such as image classification for self-driving cars, medical image processing, and speech recognition. These are fairly distinct domains, so Deep Learning World does well to complement the four Predictive Analytics World events.

3) Pure-play machine learning content

Number three, youll get pure-play machine learning content. PAWs agenda is not watered down with much coverage of other kinds of big data work. Instead, its ruthlessly focused specifically on the commercial application of machine learning also known as predictive analytics. The conference doesnt cover data science as a whole, which is a much broader and less well-defined area, that, for example, can include standard business intelligence reporting and such. And we dont cover AI per se. Artificial intelligence is at best a synonym for machine learning that tends to over-hype, or at worst an outright lie that promises mythological capabilities.

4) Hot new machine learning practices

Number four, youll learn the latest and greatest, the hottest new machine learning practices. Now, we launched PAW over a decade ago, so far delivering value to over 14,000 attendees across more than 60 events. To this day, PAW remains the leading commercial event because we keep up with the most valuable trends.

For example, Deep Learning World, which launched more recently in 2018 covers deep learnings commercial deployment across industry sectors. This relatively new form of neural networks has blossomed, both in buzz and in actual value. As I mentioned, it scales machine learning to process, for example, complex image data.

And what had been PAW Manufacturing for some years has now changed its name to PAW Industry 4.0. As such, the event now covers a broader area of inter-related work applying machine learning for smart manufacturing, the Internet of Things (IoT), predictive maintenance, logistics, fault prediction, and more.

In general, machine learning continues to widen its adoption and apply in new, innovative ways across sectors in marketing, financial risk, fraud detection, workforce optimization, and healthcare. PAW keeps up with these trends and covers todays best practices and the latest advanced modeling methods.

5) Vendor-neutral content

And finally, number five, youll access vendor-neutral content. PAW isnt run by an analytics vendor and the speakers arent trying to sell you on anything but good ideas. PAW speakers understand that vendor-neutral means those in attendance must be able to implement the practices covered and benefit from the insights delivered without buying any particular analytics product.

During the event, some vendors are permitted to deliver short presentations during a limited minority of demarcated sponsored sessions. These sessions often are also substantive and of great interest. In fact, you can access all the sponsors and tap into their expertise at will in the exhibit hall, where theyre set up for just that purpose.

By the way, if youre an analytics vendor yourself, check out PAWs various sponsorship opportunities. Our events bring together a great crowd of practitioners and decision makers.

Summary Five Reasons to Go

1) Brand-name case studies

2) Cross-industry coverage

3) Pure-play machine learning content

4) Hot new machine learning practices

5) Vendor-neutral content

and those are the reasons to come to Machine Learning Week: brand-name, cross-industry, vendor-neutral case studies purely on machine learnings commercial deployment, and the hottest topics and techniques.

Machine Learning Week not only delivers unique knowledge-gaining opportunities, its also a universal meeting place the industrys premier networking event. It brings together the whos who of machine learning and predictive analytics, the greatest diversity of expert speakers, perspectives, experience, viewpoints, and case studies.

This all turns the normal conference stuff into a much richer experience, including the keynotes, expert panels, and workshop days, as well as opportunities to network and talk shop during the lunches, coffee breaks, and reception.

I encourage you to check out the detailed agenda see all the speakers, case studies, and advanced methods covered. Each of the five conferences has its own agenda webpage, or you can also view the entire five-conference, eight-track mega-agenda at once. This view pertains if youre considering registering for the full Machine Learning Week pass, or if youll be attending along with other team members in order to divide and conquer.

How machine learning and automation can modernize the network edge – SiliconANGLE

If you want to know the future of networking, follow the money right to the edge.

Applications are expected to move from data centers to edge facilities in record numbers, opening up a huge new market opportunity. The edge computing market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 36.3 percent between now and 2022, fueled by rapid adoption of the internet of things, autonomous vehicles, high-speed trading, content streaming and multiplayer games.

What these applications have in common is a need for near zero-latency data transfer, usually defined as less than five milliseconds, although even that figure is far too high for many emerging technologies.

The specific factors driving the need for low latency vary. In IoT applications, sensors and other devices capture enormous quantities of data, the value of which degrades by the millisecond. Autonomous vehicles require information in real-time to navigate effectively and avoid collisions. The best way to support such latency-sensitive applications is to move applications and data as close as possible to the data ingestion point, therefore reducing the overall round-trip time. Financial transactions now occur at sub-millisecond cycle times, leading one brokerage firm to invest more than $100 million to overhaul its stock trading platform in a quest for faster and faster trades.

As edge computing grows, so do the operational challenges for telecommunications service provider such as Verizon Communications Inc., AT&T Corp. and T-Mobile USA Inc. For one thing, moving to the edge essentially disaggregates the traditional data center. Instead of massive numbers of servers located in a few centralized data centers, the provider edge infrastructure consists of thousands of small sites, most with just a handful of servers. All of those sites require support to ensure peak performance, which strains the resources of the typical information technology group to the breaking point and sometimes beyond.

Another complicating factor is network functions moving toward cloud-native applications deployed on virtualized, shared and elastic infrastructure, a trend that has been accelerating in recent years. In a virtualized environment, each physical server hosts dozens of virtual machines and/or containers that are constantly being created and destroyed at rates far faster than humans can effectively manage. Orchestration tools automatically manage the dynamic virtual environment in normal operation, but when it comes to troubleshooting, humans are still in the drivers seat.

And its a hot seat to be in. Poor performance and service disruptions hurt the service providers business, so the organization puts enormous pressure on the IT staff to resolve problems quickly and effectively. The information needed to identify root causes is usually there. In fact, navigating the sheer volume of telemetry data from hardware and software components is one of the challenges facing network operators today.

A data-rich, highly dynamic, dispersed infrastructure is the perfect environment for artificial intelligence, specifically machine learning. The great strength of machine learning is the ability to find meaningful patterns in massive amounts of data that far outstrip the capabilities of network operators. Machine learning-based tools can self-learn from experience, adapt to new information and perform humanlike analyses with superhuman speed and accuracy.

To realize the full power of machine learning, insights must be translated into action a significant challenge in the dynamic, disaggregated world of edge computing. Thats where automation comes in.

Using the information gained by machine learning and real-time monitoring, automated tools can provision, instantiate and configure physical and virtual network functions far faster and more accurately than a human operator. The combination of machine learning and automation saves considerable staff time, which can be redirected to more strategic initiatives that create additional operational efficiencies and speed release cycles, ultimately driving additional revenue.

Until recently, the software development process for a typical telco consisted of a lengthy sequence of discrete stages that moved from department to department and took months or even years to complete. Cloud-native development has largely made obsolete this so-called waterfall methodology in favor of a high-velocity, integrated approach based on leading-edge technologies such as microservices, containers, agile development, continuous integration/continuous deployment and DevOps. As a result, telecom providers roll out services at unheard-of velocities, often multiple releases per week.

The move to the edge poses challenges for scaling cloud-native applications. When the environment consists of a few centralized data centers, human operators can manually determine the optimum configuration needed to ensure the proper performance for the virtual network functions or VNFs that make up the application.

However, as the environment disaggregates into thousands of small sites, each with slightly different operational characteristics, machine learning is required. Unsupervised learning algorithms can run all the individual components through a pre-production cycle to evaluate how they will behave in a production site. Operations staff can use this approach to develop a high level of confidence that the VNF being tested is going to come up in the desired operational state at the edge.

AI and automation can also add significant value in troubleshooting within cloud-native environments. Take the case of a service provider running 10 instances of a voice call processing application as a cloud-native application at an edge location. A remote operator notices that one VNF is performing significantly below the other nine.

The first question is, Do we really have a problem? Some variation in performance between application instances is not unusual, so answering the question requires a determination of the normal range of VNF performance values in actual operation. A human operator could take readings of a large number of instances of the VNF over a specified time period and then calculate the acceptable key performance indicator values a time-consuming and error-prone process that must repeated frequently to account for software upgrades, component replacements, traffic pattern variations and other parameters that affect performance.

In contrast, AI can determine KPIs in a fraction of the time and adjust the KPI values as needed when parameters change, all with no outside intervention. Once AI determines the KPI values, automation takes over. An automated tool can continuously monitor performance, compare the actual value to the AI-determined KPI and identify underperforming VNFs.

That information can then be forwarded to the orchestrator for remedial action such as spinning up a new VNF or moving the VNF to a new physical server. The combination of AI and automation helps ensure compliance with service-level agreements and removes the need for human intervention a welcome change for operators weary of late-night troubleshooting sessions.

As service providers accelerate their adoption of edge-oriented architectures, IT groups must find new ways to optimize network operations, troubleshoot underperforming VNFs and ensure SLA compliance at scale. Artificial intelligence technologies such as machine learning, combined with automation, can help them do that.

In particular, there have been a number of advancements over the last few years to enable this AI-driven future. They include systems and devices to provide high-fidelity, high-frequency telemetry that can be analyzed, highly scalable message buses such as Kafka and Redis that can capture and process that telemetry, and compute capacity and AI frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch to create models from the raw telemetry streams. Taken together, they can determine in real time if operations of production systems are in conformance with standards and find problems when there are disruptions in operations.

All that has the potential to streamline operations and give service providers a competitive edge at the edge.

Sumeet Singh is vice president of engineering at Juniper Networks Inc., which provides telcos AI and automation capabilities to streamline network operations and helps them use automation capabilities to take advantage of business potential at the edge. He wrote this piece for SiliconANGLE.

2020: The year of seeing clearly on AI and machine learning – ZDNet

Tom Foremski

Late last year, I complained toRichard Socher, chief scientist at Salesforce and head of its AI projects, about the term "artificial intelligence" and that we should use more accurate terms such as machine learning or smart machine systems, because "AI" creates unreasonably high expectations when the vast majority of applications are essentially extremely specialized machine learning systems that do specific tasks -- such as image analysis -- very well but do nothing else.

Socher said that when he was a post-graduate it rankled him also, and he preferred other descriptions such as statistical machine learning. He agrees that the "AI" systems that we talk about today are very limited in scope and misidentified, but these days he thinks of AI as being "Aspirational Intelligence." He likes the potential for the technology even if it isn't true today.

I like Socher's designation of AI as Aspirational Intelligence but I'd prefer not to further confuse the public, politicians and even philosophers about what AI is today: It is nothing more than software in a box -- a smart machine system that has no human qualities or understanding of what it does. It's a specialized machine that is nothing to do with systems that these days are called Artificial General Intelligence (AGI).

Before ML systems co-opted it, the term AI was used to describe what AGI is used to describe today: computer systems that try to mimic humans, their rational and logical thinking, and their understanding of language and cultural meanings to eventually become some sort of digital superhuman, which is incredibly wise and always able to make the right decisions.

There has been a lot of progress in developing ML systems but very little progress on AGI. Yet the advances in ML are being attributed to advances in AGI. And that leads to confusion and misunderstanding of these technologies.

Machine learning systems unlike AGI, do not try to mimic human thinking -- they use very different methods to train themselves on large amounts of specialist data and then apply their training to the task at hand. In many cases, ML systems make decisions without any explanation and it's difficult to determine the value of their black box decisions. But if those results are presented as artificial intelligence then they get far higher respect from people than they likely deserve.

For example, when ML systems are being used in applications such as recommending prison sentences but are described as artificial intelligence systems -- they gain higher regard from the people using them. It implies that the system is smarter than any judge. But if the term machine learning is used it would underline that these are fallible machines and allow people to treat the results with some skepticism in key applications.

Even if we do develop future advanced AGI systems we should continue to encourage skepticism and we should lower our expectations for their abilities to augment human decision making. It is difficult enough to find and apply human intelligence effectively -- how will artificial intelligence be any easier to identify and apply? Dumb and dumber do not add up to a genius. You cannot aggregate IQ.

As things stand today, the mislabeled AI systems are being discussed as if they were well on their way of jumping from highly specialized non-human tasks to becoming full AGI systems that can mimic human thinking and logic. This has resulted in warnings from billionaires and philosophers that those future AI systems will likely kill us all -- as if a sentient AI would conclude that genocide is rational and logical. It certainly might appear to be a winning strategy if the AI system was trained on human behavior across recorded history but that would never happen.

There is no rational logic for genocide. Future AI systems would be designed to love humanity and be programmed to protect and avoid human injury. They would likely operate very much in the vein of Richard Brautigan's 1967 poemAll Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace--the last stanza:

I like to think(it has to be!)of a cybernetic ecologywhere we are free of our laborsand joined back to nature,returned to our mammalbrothers and sisters,and all watched overby machines of loving grace.

Let us not fear AI systems and in 2020, let's be clear and call them machine learning systems -- because words matter.

Leveraging AI and Machine Learning to Advance Interoperability in Healthcare – – HIT Consultant

(Left- Wilson To, Head of Worldwide Healthcare BD, Amazon Web Services (AWS) & Patrick Combes, Worldwide Technical Leader Healthcare and Life Sciences at Amazon Web Services (AWS)- Right)

Navigating the healthcare system is often a complex journey involving multiple physicians from hospitals, clinics, and general practices. At each junction, healthcare providers collect data that serve as pieces in a patients medical puzzle. When all of that data can be shared at each point, the puzzle is complete and practitioners can better diagnose, care for, and treat that patient. However, a lack of interoperability inhibits the sharing of data across providers, meaning pieces of the puzzle can go unseen and potentially impact patient health.

The Challenge of Achieving Interoperability

True interoperability requires two parts: syntactic and semantic. Syntactic interoperability requires a common structure so that data can be exchanged and interpreted between health information technology (IT) systems, while semantic interoperability requires a common language so that the meaning of data is transferred along with the data itself.This combination supports data fluidity. But for this to work, organizations must look to technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to apply across that data to shift the industry from a fee-for-service where government agencies reimburse healthcare providers based on the number of services they provide or procedures ordered to a value-based model that puts focus back on the patient.

The industry has started to make significant strides toward reducing barriers to interoperability. For example, industry guidelines and resources like the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) have helped to set a standard, but there is still more work to be done. Among the biggest barriers in healthcare right now is the fact there are significant variations in the way data is shared, read, and understood across healthcare systems, which can result in information being siloed and overlooked or misinterpreted.

For example, a doctor may know that a diagnosis of dropsy or edema may be indicative of congestive heart failure, however, a computer alone may not be able to draw that parallel. Without syntactic and semantic interoperability, that diagnosis runs the risk of getting lost in translation when shared digitally with multiple health providers.

Employing AI, ML and Interoperability in Healthcare

Change Healthcare is one organization making strides to enable interoperability and help health organizations achieve this triple aim. Recently, Change Healthcareannounced that it is providing free interoperability services that breakdown information silos to enhance patients access to their medical records and support clinical decisions that influence patients health and wellbeing.

While companies like Change Healthcare are creating services that better allow for interoperability, others like Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) are using AI and ML to further break down obstacles to quality care.

For example, Fred Hutch is using ML to help identify patients for clinical trials who may benefit from specific cancer therapies. By using ML to evaluate millions of clinical notes and extract and index medical conditions, medications, and choice of cancer therapeutic options, Fred Hutch reduced the time to process each document from hours, to seconds, meaning they could connect more patients to more potentially life-saving clinical trials.

In addition, BIDMC is using AI and ML to ensure medical forms are completed when scheduling surgeries. By identifying incomplete forms or missing information, BIDMC can prevent delays in surgeries, ultimately enhancing the patient experience, improving hospital operations, and reducing costs.

An Opportunity to Transform The Industry

As technology creates more data across healthcare organizations, AI and ML will be essential to help take that data and create the shared structure and meaning necessary to achieve interoperability.

As an example, Cernera U.S. supplier of health information technology solutionsis deploying interoperability solutions that pull together anonymized patient data into longitudinal records that can be developed along with physician correlations. Coupled with other unstructured data, Cerner uses the data to power machine learning models and algorithms that help with earlier detection of congestive heart failure.

As healthcare organizations take the necessary steps toward syntactic and semantic interoperability, the industry will be able to use data to place a renewed focus on patient care. In practice, Philips HealthSuite digital platform stores and analyses 15 petabytes of patient data from 390 million imaging studies, medical records and patient inputsadding as much as one petabyte of new data each month.

With machine learning applied to this data, the company can identify at-risk patients, deliver definitive diagnoses and develop evidence-based treatment plans to drive meaningful patient results. That orchestration and execution of data is the definition of valuable patient-focused careand the future of what we see for interoperability drive by AI and ML in the United States. With access to the right information at the right time that informs the right care, health practitioners will have access to all pieces of a patients medical puzzleand that will bring meaningful improvement not only in care decisions, but in patients lives.
