PwC - PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP

Microservices is a variant of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. In a microservices architecture, services are fine-grained and the protocols are lightweight. This session will begin with a quick overview of the most popular cloud offerings like: GCP, AWS and Azure, we will do a quick comparison and some of the cloud options available and why Microservices Architectures are getting so much attention

Are you building or interested in building microservices? They are a powerful method to build a scalable and agile backend, but managing these services can feel daunting: building, deploying, service discovery, load balancing, routing, tracing, auth, graceful failures, rate limits, and more. This session will show you how the Kubernetes container management system and Istio service mesh can simplify many of the operational challenges of microservices, including an in-depth live demo.

Model Interpretability and Transparency with Automated Machine Learning

Adnan Masood, PhD

Adnan Masood, PhD

UST Global

In AI and machine learning literature, explainability and interpretability are often used interchangeably. Interpretability is about the extent to which a cause and effect can be observed within a system while Explainability, is how a machine learning or deep learning model can be explained in subject matter expert terms. For domains like finance, healthcare and law look to deploy AI and deep learning models, fairness, accountability and transparency becomes specially important. If we’re unable to provide decision rationale with interpretability, and explainability as part of our models, we’ll seriously be limiting the potential impact of AI based systems. In this talk I will explore how automated machine learning (AutoML) can be used to explain a model, and review techniques including LIME, ELI5, and SHAP for model explainability and interpretability
