Deep learning-based computer vision has plenty of real-life applications. In particular, Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architectures are commonly used across multiple CV tasks as they have high accuracy. But their strength leads also to a weakness point, as a little perturbation to an input image/frame can make them fail. Would it be possible to interpret why a CNN failed when receiving input from an adversarial sample? Several interpretability techniques exist for other kinds of structured or semi-structured data, few only specialized for unstructured data such as visual content. …


Adversarial Image Explanation Through Alibi

Deep learning-based computer vision has plenty of real-life applications. However, would it be possible to interpret why a CNN failed when receiving input from an adversarial sample?

Recent years have seen the increasing popularity of certificates as a means for data scientists to build new skills. Companies, such as Google, have even begun offering their own, with promising results. This popularity may be a result of the fact that a machine learning certificate can offer similar amounts of knowledge for less time and costs. There are numerous other benefits as well.

Go From a Junior to Senior Role

There is a lot that can be learned on the job. However, when you learn a skill from a singular experience, you may lack the depth and breadth of…


One of the best parts of data science is that algorithms developed for one application turn up in other applications they were not originally designed for! This is very true in the world of fraud and anomaly detection. Many algorithms have their foundation elsewhere but find their usefulness in detecting rare events and data points. One great example of this would be isolation forests!

Music has been a way for us to express ourselves for quite a while now. And as we evolve, our society evolves, our technology evolves, and also, our instruments evolve. Last century we started using electronics to create music and this has provided us with so many new sounds and ways to create and experience music. These days it’s normal for us when some person stands behind their machinery with some prepared set of songs. Music blasts out of the speakers. The bass beats at a ridiculous volume, causing the earth to tremble. And we rave on and about. As…


Although ODSC Europe is an ideal conference for building new in-demand and job-ready skills in machine learning, deep learning, NLP, and much more, it is also much more than that. ODSC Europe 2021 this June 8th-10th also features several networking opportunities that will bring you together with your peers, expert speakers, and potential mentors and employers. Check out some of our confirmed networking events below.

AI Solution Showcase Expo

Engage with leading AI solution providers at the AI Expo, including SAS, Red Hat, and Microsoft Azure to learn about the products and solutions that will help you automate machine learning…


As much as we hear about data science and artificial intelligence, not even 10% of companies have implemented any form of it in their organization yet. It’s not like there aren’t options available, as there are countless solution providers that offer machine and deep learning, NLP, and automation services for interested companies. If that’s not the issue, then what is? Here are a few reasons why more companies aren’t implementing AI as much as they could be.

After a year and a half of virtual conferences, ODSC will be returning to an in-person conference for ODSC West this November 16th-18th. We cannot wait to reconnect with our friends and colleagues from across the country, and catch up on how you all have been doing over the past year. To enable more people to attend the conference safely, ODSC West 2021 will be a hybrid event: part in-person, part virtual.
