Video Highlights: A Path Into Data Science

Are you interested in getting ahead in data science? On this TalkPython podcast episode, you’ll meet Sanyam Bhutani who studied computer science but found his education didn’t prepare him for getting a data science-focused job. That’s where he started his own path of self-education and advancement. Now he’s working at an AI startup and ranking high on Kaggle.

Video Highlights: Running Effective Machine Learning Teams

In the video presentation below, Niko Laskaris, Data Scientist and Head of Strategic Projects at MLOps solutions provider Comet, hosts a compelling webinar showing you how to address many issues regarding AI/ML. He also shares case studies, and examines the shortfalls of traditional and agile practices applied to ML teams.

Video Highlights: Thinking Sparse and Dense

The video below, “Thinking Sparse and Dense” is the presentation by Paco Nathan from live@Manning Developer Productivity Conference, June 15, 2021. In a Post-Moore’s Law world, how do data science and data engineering need to change? This talk presents design patterns for idiomatic programming in Python so that hardware can optimize machine learning workflows.

Video Highlights: Emil Eifrem on the Origins of Neo4j and the Ubiquity of Graphs

The video below is from a webinar for Neo4j’s APAC Quarterly Customer Update. It includes a fascinating conversation between Emil Eifrem, Co-Founder and CEO, and Nik Vora, the Vice President of Neo4j APAC.

AI Under the Hood: Object Detection Model Capable of Identifying Floating Plastic Beneath the Surface of the Ocean

A group of researchers, Gautam Tata, Sarah-Jeanne Royer, Olivier Poirion, and Jay Lowe, have written a new paper “DeepPlastic: A Novel Approach to Detecting Epipelagic Bound Plastic Using Deep Visual Models.” The workflow described in the paper includes creating and preprocessing a domain-specific data set, building an object detection model utilizing a deep neural network, and evaluating the model’s performance.

Why 3D is the Key to Unlocking Vital Video Surveillance Data

In this contributed article, Srinath Kalluri, CEO of Oyla, suggests that by blending AI, 3D and video analytics, businesses will be able to bring better information to big data and enable smarter and safer ways of working.

Video Highlights: Generalized Additive Models – Allowing for some wiggle room in your models

In this video presentation, we’ll unpack GAMs as an extension of generalized linear models, learn about the role of splines in these models, and explore the many choices available to define and fit these models. We’ll be using data on traffic stops to investigate racially-biased policing in South Carolina as a motivating example, and we’ll get a chance to try out the related R code so that you have the basic tools needed to try out GAMs in your own research context.
