Machine Learning for the Software Engineer

Discover what it takes to start and deploy a machine learning project. We cover the machine learning pipeline by looking at data collection, model training, and model deployment. Training a machine learning model is just the tip of the iceberg of a successful project. In this track we will also look at how to set up a data collection process, and what features to select for your own project. We will answer practical questions of software engineers, among which “but how do I deploy this trained model now”, and “why does it take so long to train my model”. We will also cover what machine learning models to train, and what the latest machine learning techniques are that you have to apply to get good scores on ML benchmarks.

Data-Driven Development in the Automotive Field

Tuesday Nov 10 / 10:50AM PST

In the new era of new mobility where solving many challenging tasks of autonomous driving is not possible with classical software development. It is due to the fact that we cannot write every rule by hand and thus we would like to learn it from a huge amount of data recorded by different driving...
