How to train your algorithm? (Tomas Mikolov & Sara Polak)

18:00–19:30
Lecture room T9:105
  • AI experts Sara Polak & Tomáš Mikolov
  • We recommend the Elements of AI course from prg.ai, upon which the lecture is found.
  • The lecture will be in Czech, we will also stream it live, and the recording will be available here on the website.

What’s an algorithm? How can you train it? How do you make it more accurate? And is it really that much of a black box? With the use case of text classification and the Fasttext demo, Tomas Mikolov and Sara Polak will show you the anatomy of algorithms and explain why they work the way they work, as well as burst the most common misconceptions about them.

Sara is originally an archaeologist and evolutionary anthropologist who has spent the last 8 years in tech startups in LA and London. She focuses on the formation of the concept of Cloud Civilisations, which are a mechanism of how to best use technology to optimalize society’s evolutionary potential. She popularises and demystifies AI for the general public and founded the tech clubhouse Paioneers in Parallel Polis.
