Abstract

The talk will introduce Ludwig, a deep learning toolbox that allows to train models and to use them for prediction without the need to write code. It is unique in its ability to help make deep learning easier to understand for non-experts and enable faster model improvement iteration cycles for experienced machine learning developers and researchers alike. By using Ludwig, experts and researchers can simplify the prototyping process and streamline data processing so that they can focus on developing deep learning architectures.

Speaker: Piero Molino

Senior ML / NLP Research Scientist @UberAILabs

Piero Molino is a Senior Research Scientist at Uber AI with focus on machine learning for language and dialogue. Piero completed a PhD on Question Answering at the University of Bari, Italy. Founded QuestionCube, a startup that built a framework for semantic search and QA. Worked for Yahoo Labs in Barcelona on learning to rank, IBM Watson in New York on natural language processing with deep learning and then joined Geometric Intelligence, where he worked on grounded language understanding. After Uber acquired Geometric Intelligence, he became one of the founding members of Uber AI Labs.
