Keynote
How to generate P&L impact with Data Science (EN)All too often Data Science projects fail to deliver measurable impact on organization’s profit and loss statements. Even successful prototypes do not make it into production when essential success factors like identifying the right cases, establishing a product mindset or focusing on operationalization are ignored. Carsten and Holger share best practices compressed into 10 key aspects that ensure P&L impact for Data Science.

Making Scout24 ready for AI (EN)Artificial Intelligence will change the world in the next three years. To keep track with this exponentially growing technology it is important to make everyone in your company ready for AI. Since mid 2018 Scout24 is on a journey to make every Scoutie ready for AI and to prepare the complete business for AI. I will describe our journey, learnings of the last months and present exciting AI projects which help Scout24 to make the difference.

Deep Dive
The Scout24 Data Platform: a technical deep dive (EN)The Scout24 Data Platform powers all reporting, ad hoc analytics and machine learning products at AutoScout24 and ImmobilienScout24. In this talk, I will take a technical deep dive into our modern, cloud-based big data platform. I will discuss our evolution of approaches to ingestion, ETL, access control, reporting and machine learning with a focus on in-the-trenches learnings gained from our many failures and successes as we migrated from a traditional Oracle Data Warehouse to an AWS-based data lake.

Using Deep Learning to rank and tag millions of hotel images (EN)
Tanuj Jain, Data Scientist, idealo internet GmbH | Christopher Lennan, Senior Data Scientist, idealo internet GmbH
11:15 - 11:45
Online Business
Using Deep Learning to rank and tag millions of hotel images (EN)At idealo.de (a leading price comparison website in Europe), we have a dedicated service to provide hotel price comparisons (hotel.idealo.de). For each hotel, we receive dozens of images and face the challenge of composing image galleries that are attractive and at the same time help our users to make informed decisions. Given that we have millions of hotel offers, we end up with more than 100 million images for which we need both an attractiveness assessment and a tag (e.g. a “bathroom” or “bedroom” tag)...
Fun with visual similarity search - Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) with Neural Networks (EN)A *brief introduction to CBIR with neural networks*: the general setup and architecture, feature representations, similarity measures, metrics and losses, datasets, different ways of training, common problems, and differences to classic computer vision algorithms. 2. *Lessons learned*: how RoomAR uses CBIR, hands-on implementation of CBIR with PyTorch, speeding up the search, and some (fun) ideas of what you can do with this setup.

Productionizing Machine Learning Models - Lessons Learned in the Hadoop Ecosystem and the Way Ahead (EN)
Steffen Bunzel, Data Scientist, Alexander Thamm GmbH | Simon Weiß, Data Scientist, Alexander Thamm GmbH
13:45 - 15:15
Deep Dive
Productionizing Machine Learning Models - Lessons Learned in the Hadoop Ecosystem and the Way Ahead (EN)The deployment of machine learning models can be challenging. Especially in the context of distributed systems: Python being the dominant language among data scientists creates frictions when integrating with JVM-based tools such as Spark or managing application dependencies on clusters of heterogenous machines. Many data scientists developing on such systems struggle with the subtleties of these challenges. This presentation will share lessons learned working on large-scale Hadoop clusters and examine the most promising approaches to alleviate common issues. In particular, we will discuss our experience with leveraging containerization to tackle the dependency management challenge from a data scientist\\\'s point of view.

Smart Training of ML Models in Audio- and Video Mining (EN)The need for training data for machine learning algorithms is still incredibly high and is constantly growing with the growing use of artificial intelligence. Many companies are therefore faced with the challenge of reluctant to use methods such as deep learning because training the models would be too complex and time-consuming. At the same time, however, models available on the market are usually not directly applicable and do not fit optimally to one\\\\\\\'s own needs...

Demystifying the neural network black box: An interactive session on understanding decisions made by Convolutional Neural Networks (EN)Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) are state of the art when it comes to computer vision tasks, such as image recognition and object detection. However, due to the high amount of architectural complexity, it is often difficult to interpret the decisions made by these networks. Luckily, there are several techniques available which can enhance our comprehension of CNN decisions. These techniques are generally divided into attribution and visualisation methods...

Transport & Industry
Two years of Data Science in a Fujitsu factory (EN)When talking about data science projects we often focus on algorithms and results. But when you start a data science project from scratch in a factory there are a lot of different problems that need to be tackled: where to install a sensor in order to get data, how to involve external parties as the maker of the machines, defining what is acceptable data quality.... In this talk I want to discuss the challenges we faced and what we learned when we used data science in the Fujitsu factory in Augsburg in order to improve run time and quality.

Anomaly detection in customs area (EN)The search for anomalous transactions was performed manually on historical data. A check for previously unknown anomalies and attribute constellations is hardly possible with manually defined rules. The aim of the project is to automatically detect anomalies and unwanted deviations using intelligent and learning procedures. The project therefore focused on advanced technologies (e.g. neural networks).
