AI Paris – Edition 2018

The « City of Fashion and Design » (« Cité de la mode et du design » in French), located in Paris 13, will welcome the 11 and 12 of June 2018 the new edition of AI Paris.
This is the appointment with Artificial Intelligence in France.
Artificial Intelligence is indeed spreading in all the company’s business.
According to the study of the Digital Transformation Institute conducted by Capgemini, IA allowed 83% of the companies surveyed to create jobs and 3/4 of these have already increased their sales by almost 10%.

But what is Artificial Intelligence? It’s a question with multiple answers … The simplest idea is that Artificial Intelligence is about being able to create intelligent machines. But what is intelligence related to a machine?
Some will consider a machine applying a very advanced rule system as an Intelligent machine.
The issue is that once these rules are set, the latter do not evolve and if something had to change and thus invalidate some rules then human action would be required.
A so-called « smart » machine should indeed be able to adapt without having to resort to the human being anymore …

Machine Learning is a sub-domain of Artificial Intelligence that is a set of several algorithms for learning from data.
Before this phase of learning, there is important work of data wrangling (cleaning, feature engineering …).

There are several types of learning methods; the two main ones being:

  • Supervised learning: The algorithm learns from a tagged data.
    Data is a set of values, numeric or textual.
    The label is what we want the algorithm to be able to « predict ».
  • Unsupervised learning: The algorithm has only the data available.
    The goal will be to bring similar data closer, to be able to « separate the data », to identify clusters. We are talking about « clustering ».

Deep Learning is included in Machine Learning but takes advantage of neural networks.
When using deep learning algorithms, they are often run on GPUs.

Many companies have started to create entities dedicated to the use of these advanced algorithms of Artificial Intelligence, combining exploration and industrialization phases to provide businesses with Data Science products.

AI Paris will be the opportunity to discover the use cases of artificial intelligence in companies and the latest advances.
