Deep Learning Summit

RE•WORK are excited to announce the attendance of the ‘world leader in artificial intelligence research and its application for positive impact’, Google DeepMind. At the Deep Learning Summit, both Irina Higgins and Jörg Bornschein, Research Scientists from DeepMind will be presenting their current work and the most current cutting-edge progressions in deep learning.

Irina’s aim at DeepMind is to bring together insights of machine learning and neuroscience to advance AI. In her talk, she will be focusing on automated discovery of early visual concepts from raw image data and how it’s a major open challenge in AI research. The unsupervised approach that Higgins is currently implementing to address this problem is learning disentangled representations of the underlying factors of variation. She will discuss how they are drawing on inspiration from neuroscience and show how this can be achieved in an unsupervised generative model. This can be done by applying the same learning pressures as have been suggested to act in the ventral visual stream in the brain.

Also confirmed to speak at the Deep Learning Summit is Andrew Tulloch, Research Engineer from Facebook who will be unpacking some of the complex deep learning methods Facebook are using to draw value from the huge amounts of data available to them. Previously, he has worked on the large scale event prediction models powering ads and News Feed ranking, the computer vision models powering image understanding, and many other machine learning projects. He will cover a multitude of areas including the tools and tricks that Facebook are implementing to optimise their advertising relevance, news feed and search ranking to computer vision, face recognition, and speech recognition. The machine learning and AI powered company run these models on a massive scale, computing trillions of predictions every day. A portion of Facebook’s libraries have been open-sourced, and the event will draw on some of these deep learning applications.

Additional confirmed speakers include:


AI Assistants Summit

On this track, industry leaders will be exploring the next generation of predictive intelligence and showcase the advancing trends in AI assistants and their impact on business in society. Siri, Alexa, Cortana and Google Assistant may be known as ‘The Big Four’, but there are many other companies working on AI assistants, and there will be the opportunity to hear from industry experts, researchers, businesses and startups working to advance this technology in their field.

Confirmed speakers include:

Earlier this year at the Virtual Assistants Summit in San Francisco, we heard from Dennis Mortensen, CEO and Founder of, who sat down with us to talk about his current work. He spoke about how he began his work in VA to overcome a real-world problem he was facing. He explained that whilst 'no one wants to reply on VAs, you don’t want to have to do things such as setup your own meetings yourself. It’s time consuming and a waste of resources.' This annoyance for Mortensen was the catalyst to begin his work in VA. He spoke about his work in both supervised and unsupervised learning and the pros and cons of both methods to achieve the most effective VA.

Both summits will focus on the cutting edge and emerging research in deep learning and virtual assistants, and will see presentations from academics, industry experts, startups, and businesses both researching around these advancements, and also implementing them in the workplace.
