NDR is an artificial intelligence conference also covering machine learning, deep learning, and data science. Named after the main character sci-fi novel, The Positronic Man, the event brings great minds together for technical talks by expert speakers sharing their experiences, best practices and use cases. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of how to build intelligent applications, how companies are using intelligent techniques, how to improve workflow or start a career in data science, and will learn new tools and techniques.
NDR takes place in Iasi and Bucharest, and Cognizant Softvision is proud to be a sponsor of the Bucharest event. In addition, Alex Vasinca, Cognizant Softvision Machine Learning Engineer, will be a featured speaker at NDR Bucharest, sharing his expertise on Dark Knowledge.
When: June 6, 2019
Where: Hotel InterContinental
The Cognizant Softvision Talk: Dark Knowledge with Alex Vasinca
Deep Learning has been a massive success for a time now but the industry is moving toward constrained environments, such as mobile or real-time systems, where inference time, model size or power efficiency are first class requirements. Model compression through Knowledge distillation (Dark Knowledge) promises to try and solve the above with a teacher-student paradigm. Can a student overcome its teacher?
Coder and passionate about every aspect in the tech industry, Alex currently works as a Machine Learning engineer at Cognizant Softvision on projects that are heavily using Deep Learning techniques in the Computer Vision area. He’s also interested in sequence modeling, GANs and pretty much everything on the cutting edge.
