🤖 Topic: LLMs are all around us – how generative modeling is changing the landscape of the non-IT problems

Join us for a talk about the amazing world of Large Language Models (LLMs) and how these clever models are shaking things up beyond the usual tech scene. We'll explore how they're making a difference in all sorts of non-IT problems and have a friendly conversation about the cool ways generative modeling is changing the game!

About Radoslav: 

Radoslav Neychev is a data scientist with focus on Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning techniques. He has worked on a variety of research (CERN LHCb, MIPT Machine Intelligence Lab, CC RAS) and industrial projects (Yandex, RaiffeisenBank) in different domains ranging from particle identification problem to fraudulent transactions detection.

Radoslav graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, majoring in Applied Mathematics and Machine Learning. Radoslav is reading lectures and organising practical classes at Russian top-tier universities, tech companies and summer schools.

📊 Topic: Visualize wherever you are

Visualizing software — does it matter? Should we pay for it or is open source enough? What to do if Tableau broke up with you?

About Alina: 

Alina graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, majoring in Applied Mathematics and Physics. Currently, she is pursuing her PhD in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, with a primary focus on time series analysis related to brain signals and neurointerfaces.

Throughout her career, Alina has gained extensive experience working with diverse datasets in various companies. She has contributed to the development of neural networks for a startup specializing in VR games with neurocontrol (Neiry), as well as made valuable contributions to fraud detection efforts in a major industrial company (Avito).

📝 Topic: Data, bias and copyright in the LLMs era

Exploring biased data and techniques in data poisoning.

About Moisés: 

I am a Ph.D. in the field of Artificial Intelligence, specializing in classical planning, machine learning and robotics systems. My Ph.D. thesis consists in extending some works on abstractions to the field of classical planning by generating abstract partial plans that provide detailed actions in the first steps of the plan. In later steps of the plan, it will only provide limited details, since the actions that are planned to be executed in the future are very unlikely to be used, given the uncertainty in plan execution. The future is always uncertain to spend a lot of time reasoning about it.

My work focuses on two main aspects. The first one consists of generating planners which can be used for planning and execution. The second one is solving real world problems (robotics, logistic, video-games) using automated planning.
