Embrace uncertainty! Why to go beyond point estimators for valuable ML applications
Stefan MaierAlgorithms, Data Science, Machine Learning, Statistics
Usually, uncertainties of Machine Learning predictions are just regarded as a sign of poor prediction accuracy or as a consequence of lacking input features. This talk illustrates how modeling uncertainties can improve ML based decisions.
Extended Ligthning Talks CANCELLED: Crunching Numbers Like a Journalist
Marie-Louise TimckeBig Data, Data Science, Statistics
Marie will talk about how newsrooms work with data on a day to day basis, and how scientific accuracy fits in with the pace of news reporting.
Friend or Foe: Comparison of R & Python in Data Wrangling & Visualisation
Yuta KanzawaData Science, Machine Learning, Visualisation, Statistics
R and Python are different in community and as language. Still, comparing them in their common fields such as data wrangling and visualisation, useRs and Pythonistas will deepen mutual understanding.

Loss Function Theory 101
David WölfleArtificial Intelligence, Algorithms, Deep Learning, Data Science, Machine Learning, Statistics
This talk covers the theoretical background behind two common loss functions, mean squared error and cross entropy, including why they are used for machine learning at all, and what limitations you should keep in mind.
