Abstract:
Industry 4.0 – What is it and why is it important in today’s world? We are entering the 4th major industrial revolution. The first saw the introduction of steam and water power. The 2nd saw assembly lines and mass production. The 3rd was fueled by computers. Now, we see a 4th, marked by AI, big data, Mobile devices, Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, automation and more.
In this session, we will discuss:

  • What has changed from Industry 3.0 to 4.0
  • What do I need to prepare for as we progress through Industry 4.0
  • Digitization: Industry 4.0 Technologies as the Game changer. Why is it significant?

Abstract:
Can you diagnose and fix your car?  Can you reboot your router?
We get along with technology better when we have some operational understanding
of how it works.  As we an approach an age when robots and other artificially
intelligent agents surround us, we must expand our mental models of machines to
include those that display autonomous goal-directed behaviors and even evoke
notions of intentionality.  As a case in point, today’s Conversational Agents
are simultaneously very smart, and very dumb.  This talk will review the
Natural Language Processing and knowledge modeling technologies that give
Alexa and Google Home remarkable and engaging question answering and chat
abilities.  I will offer some fun tips on how to reverse-engineer how these
devices “think”.

Bio:

Eric Saund is a research scientist, developer, and consultant whose work spans multiple fields of intelligent systems, including conversational agents, document analytics, perceptually supported user interfaces, machine learning, and computational vision. Eric received a B.S. from Caltech and a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from MIT.  He served in research and research management roles at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, he has published widely, his prototypes have served thousands of users, and he has been awarded 60 patents to date.

8:00PM – 8:30PM — Q&A and Adjourn

Topic #1:
Abstract:
The best artificial neural network (ANN) models today are capable of extraordinary tasks.  For example, in just the last year natural language processing has progressed massively with the onset of transformer-based models such as BERT from Google and GPT-2 from Open AI.  The problem with these models is their cost – one model can take as much energy for training as multiple cars consume in their lifetime.  At Rain, we are fundamentally reimagining the processor that underlies the mathematics of all ANNs to enable a step change in both scale and efficiency.  We utilize innovations in materials, architectures, and algorithms to build the most brain-like processors ever

Bio:

Gordon Wilson is the CEO and Co-Founder of Rain Neuromorphics. Gordon studied mathematics at the University of Florida, where he met the co-founders of Rain. Gordon is passionate about enabling AI to be both incredibly smart and incredibly efficient. He enjoys open water swimming, cooking, and learning about the myriad ways AI is evolving each day.

Topic #2:
Abstract:
The age of artificial intelligence and data science requires scalable access to data. Studies show that even today, data science teams spend up to 80% of their time in the discovery and integration process. Traditional integration approaches like ETL, where often a single engineer writes a separate script for each data source does not scale with thousands of data sources. Fusionbase is a novel approach to access data in heterogeneous data landscapes. The system implements a performant query federation layer using semantically enriched dataspaces. This technology allows virtualizing data efficiently and gives ad-hoc analytical access to data scientists on a large variety of data sources

Bio:

Patrick Holl is the co-founder and CTO of Fusionbase.io – a platform that provides queryable access to thousands of high-quality third-party datasets – all cleaned and ready for analytics. He is also actively contributing to the research community and pursuing his Ph.D. at the TUM. His research focuses on data management and polystore systems. Before, he has worked as a data engineer and consultant for several large corporates in Germany
