10 Years Tryolabs 🎉
It all started with three friends and a crazy idea, and ended up in a machine learning consultancy with more than 50 contributors. This year, that crazy idea turns 10 years old and behind it lies an exciting, fun, nerve-wracking and inspiring journey. There’s no better time to take you on a walk down memory lane and dig up some juicy stuff about the origins of Tryolabs and its evolution.
The 8 main takeaways from Khipu 2019
From 11-15 November 2019, the most important event in the history of artificial intelligence (AI) in Latin America took place in Montevideo, our hometown. Khipu.ai was the first of hopefully many events to come, in which top researchers from all over the world, both from academy and industry, came to the region to share knowledge and promote much needed diversity in the field, pushing Latin America forward. As proud supporters of Khipu, we from Tryolabs got to attend the awesome talks and trainings provided during the event, as well as contributed with own talks and a booth featuring four demos of pose estimation models running in real time on different embedded devices.
Machine learning edge devices: benchmark report
Why edge computing? Humans are generating and collecting more data than ever. We have devices in our pockets that facilitate the creation of huge amounts of data, such as photos, gps coordinates, audio, and all kinds of personal information we consciously and unconsciously reveal. Moreover, not only are we individuals generating data for personal reasons, but we’re also collecting data unbeknownst to us from traffic and mobility control systems, video surveillance units, satellites, smart cars, and an infinite array of smart devices.
Winning the #AllianzGIHack in Hong Kong
How does a multinational financial services company drive innovation with artificial intelligence? That was a question that Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI), one of the leading active asset managers, was trying to answer when seeking for disruptive technologies to enhance its services. As a solution they came up with the idea of hosting a 48-hour AI hackathon in Hong Kong, where startups from around the globe pitch AI projects that improve fund management.
Deep in the dark: enhancing malware traffic detection with deep learning
The IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (IEEE S&P) is one of the top-tier conferences in computer security and electronic privacy. This year, the IEEE S&P was held in May, in San Francisco. It was not a regular edition, as this flagship conference marked its 40th anniversary. This year’s symposium was a special celebration that included a plenary session with some exceptional panelists from the S&P community, Test of Time awards for papers that have made a lasting impact on the field, and even an amazing birthday cake!
Recap: our first machine learning meetup in San Francisco
Lately, our team has been invited to give several talks at conferences, workshops and company events all around the world. As we got great feedback from the audience of these events, we felt like organizing our very own machine learning event for our partners and friends in San Francisco. We could have an open space to share experiences and directly talk about the opportunities behind machine learning. Event flyer of our first machine learning meetup in SF.
Embedded Vision Summit 2019: My talk and takeaways
As a machine learning engineer, building solutions in the vision and deep learning fields, I’d always had my eye on the Embedded Vision Summit, a leading computer vision conference taking place yearly in Silicon Valley. When I found out I had been invited to speak at the 2019 edition of the conference taking place May 18-21, I was obviously very excited. This was going to be an amazing opportunity for me to share my experiences in the field, and of course I was all in.
Transform 2019 Conference — Accelerate your business with AI
Our effort spent curating the list of machine learning conferences over the last two years has proven that there are an evermore increasing number of interesting machine learning conferences taking place around the world. While they all deserve mention and are worth attending, there are some conferences that we think are especially noteworthy given their great lineup of speakers and programs and that we’ve tagged Tryolabs’ Picks. One of our favorite conferences is Transform 2019, which takes place July 10-11 at the Union Square Hilton, in Downtown San Francisco.
Can you beat this pricing algorithm?
This post was written in collaboration with Facundo Parodi, Research & Machine Learning Engineer at Tryolabs. Deciding on the best price for a product or service you’re providing, in order to maximize business profit, is not a trivial problem, not at all. Actually, it’s always ongoing, since you can never tell if the price you chose is better than others you didn’t. Even if you try other prices, market conditions may change, as they frequently do.
My talk at the Tom Tom Festival 2019
In January, I got the great news that I had been invited to give a talk at the sold out Applied Machine Learning Conference (AMLC), which would take place at the Tom Tom Summit & Festival in Charlottesville (Virginia) in April. I had heard great things about the 2018 edition and was eager to know Charlottesville, so I immediately accepted the invitation. 🤗 That's me, talking about ConvNets at the Tom Tom Festival 2019 About Tom Tom Summit & Festival The Tom Tom Summit & Festival is an annual event with the following mission:
