No time to get things wrong on AI? Join us at our MCubed Online event this month and master machine learning

This year’s conference is slimmed down, highly practical – just like you

Event There’s one thing that hasn’t been disrupted over recent months. Machine learning and AI continue to push their way into the mainstream, and are helping provide answers to the blizzard of tough questions we are all facing right now.

But with budgets tight, and the need for results, let’s say, pressing, the focus is on practicality, usability, and accessibility. We just don’t have time for anything else.

And that’s why you should really join us at our MCubed Online conference on October 14, where our slimmed down lineup of highly experienced speakers will be taking a decidedly pragmatic, hands-on approach to machine learning, AI, and analytics.

The BBC’s Ewan Nicholson will show you how to design simple, reliable machine-learning systems, while Seldon’s Ryan Dawson will demonstrate how to apply DevOps to machine learning while taking into account the different workflows and software artefacts involved. We’ll have MCubed veteran Dr Janet Bastiman, who will start from the position that most testing in AI projects is “rubbish” before showing you where and how to apply testing methodology to ensure you “won’t end up being one of those embarrassing failures in the news.”

And while results are important, so are ethics, and we’ll be hearing from the Learning Edge Forum’s resident digital anthropologist Dr Caitlin McDonald, who’ll talk us through the evolution of sustainable digital ethics.

Other sessions will cover responsibility in AI, model deployment on Azure and Kubernetes, and more. You can see the full lineup, and the schedule, on our website right here.

All of this can be enjoyed from the comfort of wherever you happen to be working these days, with the caterer of your choice. But one thing stays the same. You’ll finish the day better informed, and ready to turbocharge your own AI and machine learning efforts.

Yes, we’ll miss spending two or three days with you in person, getting deep into the nuts and bolts of algorithms and workflows, highlighting fascinating projects, and enjoying some great food and drink together. (We really miss that part.)

But don’t forget you can relive our previous conferences, and most importantly see key sessions, on the MCubed Online website.
