Talk: Saving Lives with ML: Applications and Learnings

Abstract: Machine learning (ML) has transformed numerous industries but its application in healthcare has been limited. ML applications are expected to permeate healthcare in the near future with a recent explosion in academic and commercial activity. The application of ML in healthcare, however, is complicated by a variety of factors including the significant variability in needs, healthcare settings and patients served in these settings, workflows, and available resources. This talk will present a case study of Unity Health Toronto and its journey in developing and deploying numerous ML solutions into clinical practice, including bridging public and private sector partnerships to spread innovations internationally. The talk will also present a novel Canadian academic centre dedicated to artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine – the Temerty Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research and Education in Medicine (T-CAIREM) at the University of Toronto.

What You’ll Learn: The successful application of ML in healthcare is multifaceted and highly dependent on end-user engagement.
Innovative public-private partnerships are needed to spread ML applications globally.

Multidisciplinary, collaborative efforts will fuel innovations in the development and application of ML in healthcare.

Winston Li

Founder, Arima

Winston is the founder of Arima, a Canadian based startup that provides consumer data to its users. Our flagship product, the Synthetic Society, is a privacy-by-design, individual level database that mirrors the real society. Built using trusted sources like census, market research, mobility and purchase patterns, it contains 10k+ attributes across North America and enables advanced modelling at the most granular level.

Prior to founding Arima, Winston was the Director of Data Science at PwC and Omnicom. Winston is also a part-time faculty member at Northeastern University Toronto and sits on the advisory board of the Master of Analytics program.

Talk: The Application of Mobile Location Data for Vending Machine Site Selection and Revenue Optimization.

Abstract: In this presentation, we present an innovative approach to utilizing mobility data to optimize the placement of vending machines in Canada. Coca-Cola has more than 10k vending machines in various locations and their ROI heavily depends on the amount of foot traffic next to them as well as who those people are. For this use case, we’ll be concentrating on using the super detailed mobility data to understand the difference between our best machines and worst at scale, and optimizing their location based on the mobility data to increase the ROI. In addition to the practical and business application, we’ll also be able to share the algorithms used and the tech stack with the audience.

What You’ll Learn: Mobility data as an alternative data source for consumer related analytics and its recency and granularity and really drive measurable business outcomes.

Arthur Vitui

Senior Data Scientist Specialist Solution Architect, RedHat Canada

Arthur is a senior data scientist specialist solution architect at RedHat Canada where with the help of open source software is helping organizations develop intelligent application ecosystems and bring them into production using MLOps best practices.
He is also pursuing his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, and he is a research assistant in the Software Perfomance Analysis and Reliability (SPEAR) Lab.
His research interests are related to AIOps with focus on performance and scalability optimization.

Workshop: Open Source Intelligent Application Delivery on Kubernetes

Abstract: The recent rise in popularity of containerized workloads demanded better ways to orchestrate and manage these workloads hence the creation of the Kubernetes platform.

When it comes to running intelligent application workloads which contain built-in AI/ML software components, the requirement of a Kubernetes platform as a service extends beyond agility, portability, flexibility and scalability as it is required to also answer to the datascientist’s dilemma: getting started and getting into production.

However, as the ML code is only a small part of the entire intelligent application ecosystem, with this workshop we present a showcase for using a Kubernetes platform and a blueprint architecture that proposes an answer to many challenges related to the development, deployment and management of distributed applications.
The user stories we shall focus on in this workshop concerning the developer, data scientist and operations engineer personas are:
– As a data scientist, I want to develop ML models using Jupyter Hub (lab/notebooks) as my preferred research environment.
– As a data scientist, I want my model to be deployed quickly so that it may be used by other applications.
– As a (fullstack) developer, I want to have quick access to resources that support the business logic of my applications, including databases, storage, messaging.
– As a (fullstack) developer, I want an automated build process to support new releases/code updates as soon as they are available in a git repository.
– As an operations engineer, I want an integrated monitoring dashboard to new applications available on the (production) infrastructure.

What You’ll Learn: Open source container platforms are a great option to integrate Machine Learning with any application or service by boosting productivity while maintaining a high level of security.

Software Engineer/Data Scientist, Bloomberg

Workshop: Beyond the Basics: Data Visualization in Python

Abstract: The human brain excels at finding patterns in visual representations, which is why data visualizations are essential to any analysis. Done right, they bridge the gap between those analyzing the data and those consuming the analysis. However, learning to create impactful, aesthetically-pleasing visualizations can often be challenging. This session will equip you with the skills to make customized visualizations for your data using Python.

While there are many plotting libraries to choose from, the prolific Matplotlib library is always a great place to start. Since various Python data science libraries utilize Matplotlib under the hood, familiarity with Matplotlib itself gives you the flexibility to fine tune the resulting visualizations (e.g., add annotations, animate, etc.). This session will also introduce interactive visualizations using HoloViz, which provides a higher-level plotting API capable of using Matplotlib and Bokeh (a Python library for generating interactive, JavaScript-powered visualizations) under the hood.

What You’ll Learn: Data visualization is essential for anyone working with data, but sometimes it can be difficult to create impactful visualizations in Python. In this workshop, we will move beyond the plotting basics and explore how to make compelling static, animated, and interactive visualizations.
