Key Speakers for IMLW17

IMLW17 Presenters & Special Guests

The application of machine learning to industrial assets and data products is poised to unlock unprecedented levels of new value. However, while the successes of AI and ML in the consumer space are well known, the application of industrial machine learning (IML) is still in a relatively nascent state. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and industry practitioners from across the GE business units and GRC—from algorithm creators to hardware designers to application builders—to learn from each other, share the latest innovations, and articulate the unique challenges we face. Participants will be invited to collaboratively answer questions of particular interest to industrial machine learning and formulate their own questions for future exploration. IMLW17 will focus on the following topics:

1. Machine Learning in Production
2. Marrying Physics and Data-driven models
3. Explainability / Interpretability of Machine Learning
4. Secure, Private Artificial Intelligence
