    Volodymyr Tkachuk

    Head of Edge Research, Ring Ukraine

    Theme: How to deploy Machine Learning algorithm on embedded

    About speaker:
    In 2008, he graduated from NTUU “KPI” in “Applied Mathematics”.
    Worked as a programmer, researcher, researcher, technical manager in such companies as Microsoft (Copenhagen), the Department of Pattern Recognition in Kibtsentr (Kyiv), Materialise NV (Kyiv, Shanghai) and Ring Ukraine (Kyiv).
    I was engaged in projects of 3D reconstruction of a scene on two-dimensional shots, segmentation of a three-dimensional medical image, optimization of 3D printing algorithms.
    The current work in Ring Ukraine is connected with the development and implementation of algorithms to be performed on “smart” devices such as courier calls and Ring’s cameras.
    Briefly about the report:
    Learning complex algorithms, such as large neural networks, is still a resource-intensive procedure that requires complex hardware. At the same time, the emergence of “light” architectures (for example, MobileNet), and the simultaneous increase in the power of embedded systems, creates the ability to perform machine-trained algorithms on “smart” devices.
    There are various ways to optimize and run their algorithms. The easiest way is to use community-supported and developed frameworks such as Mini Caffe and TensorFlow lite. Some manufacturers of built-in systems are equipping their products with chips optimized for neural networks and offering libraries to work with them. Finally, you can always program itself to implement any network in the language C / C ++ with optimization for a particular processor.

    Alexandr Honchar

    AI Solution architect, MAWI

    Theme: Multitask learning: learn more to learn better

    About speaker:
    Alexandr is a machine learning expert with experience in computer vision and time series analysis, who worked with Ukrainian (MAWI, ARVI), Russian (Mlvch), American (Inma AI), and Italian (HPA Srl) companies. He is mainly interested in bringing research ideas to production and making value from latest theoretical developments in AI. Currently he is working in MAWI (USA-based company with R&D department in Ukraine) on biomedical signal analysis, in particular ECG, and applying machine learning for classical applications like medical diagnostics and developing novel cases as well. Meanwhile, Alexandr teaches deep learning seminars in University of Verona and writes a popular blog on Medium.
    Briefly about the report:
    Machine learning as a discipline went through a long way from statistical pattern recognition in clean and tiny data to learning meaningful representations from complex high dimensional data on scale with deep learning algorithms. Indeed, it reminds in a way on how human brains process the information… but not close enough. One of the amazing abilities of human brain is performing several different conclusions from one piece of data – seen a cat, we don’t just identify a class “cat” with 97% of confidence, we also see the color, how far it is from us, try to detect the mood and cuteness of the animal. The same happens when we read text or hear the speech – we understand a lot from read of heard sentences and the same should do deep learning algorithms. In this talk we’ll study the concept of multitask learning – doing several tasks on the same data, understand why it helps machine learning to generalize and understand problem better and review cases in computer vision, NLP, reinforcement learning and other fields so you can apply this idea in your business.

    Alexandr Honchar

    AI Solution architect, MAWI

    Briefly about the Workshop:
    In this workshop, we will study multitask learning in practice. Multitask learning is a concept of designing machine learning algorithms in such a way, so they learn to solve several problems using the same set of parameters. Not surprisingly it helps to generalize and learn new and more useful features from the data than with using a single task and a single loss function. We will briefly review the theory behind multitask learning but will concentrate on implementing these models (mainly neural networks) by ourselves using Keras and apply it to different datasets (computer vision, signal processing) to prove their effectiveness.

    Theme: Confidence Measures For Stereo Vision: an Engineer’s View

    About speaker:
    Volyn National University – master of science – theoretical physics. Lutsk National Technical University- Ph.D. student. 10+ years of commercial experience as the software/hardware engineer.
    Main skills
    Rapid prototyping and implementation of complex SW/HW solutions for 2D and 3D pattern recognition and object detection from data of different origin, multisensor fusion. Designing environment perception systems for UAV/UGV for their orientation in space. Image processing.
    Applying computer vision and machine learning methods for solving real-life problems.
    Briefly about the report:
    The report will be about the practical aspects of dealing with data obtained from the binocular stereo system. Usually, such data are corrupted by noise and outliers and are rarely used in the raw form. It may lead to incorrect interpretations of the distance measurements and improper reasoning about the scene being observed (phantom obstacles, missing objects etc). Also, it is crucial to obtain the confidence measure to get a reliable sensor fusion system. Therefore estimating a reliable confidence of the data is an important step in the data processing pipeline of every autonomous system
    We will touch the confidence estimation approaches for the data from common stereo disparity estimation algorithms being used in robotic perception systems that work in real-time

    Briefly about the report:
    Despite chip/memory/storage/networks giant leap since 1970s, a dozen of known optimization problems are still unsolved in short time using cheap resources with acceptable quality. Naming a several of them: Traveling Salesman Problem, Constraint Satisfaction Problem, Protein Folding, Earth Simulation. They are of combinatorial complexity. On the one hand, those problems are attacked with HPC by supercomputers. On the other hand it could be possible to apply new kind of AI, to solve them with cheaper resources. There could be a link between intelligence and computational universe – AI can build complexity.
    At Ingeenee, we are building an ingenious engine, that can find a maximum sightseeing in any geographical area and build the route through the cities with POIs, within time and budget constrainsts simultaneously. I will share stories how we solve this NP-complete problem (TSP+CSP) with ML and Evolutionary Computing.

    Briefly about the report:
    Most sources are lively talking about machine learning systems, often not taking into account the fact that 80% of the time and energy of analytic goes to data mining, analysis, and labeling.
    Scope big data system it’s a huge expense for low-skilled (and not only) work. Here comes the help of semi-supervised learning methods, which allow one to teach models for partially labeled data
    In the report, we will consider the case when data labeling and learning process go iteratively with maximum efficiency. The main question here is when it is enough to spend resources on data labeling while maintaining the qualitative metrics of the model.
