Reinforcement learning 1: deep Q networks – Michal Chovanec

  • Language: SK
  • Date and time: Wed, November 4th, 19:00
  • Venue: online, check
Sylabus of the talk:
1. Reinforcement learning versus supervised learning

2. Deep Q Network (DQN) – why it’s naive NN not working

3. Advanced architectures: noisy DQN, dueling DQN, rainbow DQN, attention DQN and hands-on practices how to create network architecture

4. Real examples (Atari, Super Mario, Doom 2) – how is network interacting with given world.

Whole talk is full of real examples of pytorch integration and results. Reinforcement learning is a machine learning method, which is trying to find optimal strategy (trajectory) in Markov decision process (in this case, game). Agent (usually deep neural network) is actively interacting with environment, considering current status to choose actions (policy) as output, evaluing rewards and punishments. Goal is to maximize sum of rewards. Agent does not know what is right behaviour, but has knowledge of actions and rewards. Based on this, reinforcement learning is capable of finding better strategy than human.

Michal Chovanec is a researcher in AI field. Currently is working in Tachyum in Bratislava, developing AI accelerator of new processor. His PhD degree is from University in Žilina. His favorite topics are reinforcement learning, robotics (winner of Gold Medal in Istrobot challenge) and modelling of red blood cell in research group Cell in fluid (FRI, UNIZA).

Statistical vs. Deep Learning Methods for Time Series Forecasting

Who got it wrong?
In recent years, Deep Learning (DL) has revolutionized many fields such as image analysis, speech recognition, and natural language processing. However, Time Series Analysis is still dominated by classical statistical methods. In a recent comparison of statistical (Stat) and machine learning (ML) forecasting methods, prof. Makridakis, one of the leading authorities in this field, even claimed: „The forecasting accuracy of the best ML method was lower than the worst of Stat ones while half the ML methods were less accurate than a random walk“ (Makridakis et al., PLOS One, 2018).In this talk, we start by a high-level introduction to time series forecasting. Next, we get an overview of M1 – M4 competitions‘ results and publicly available datasets on Kaggle. We propose an explanation why for some data, DL forecasting methods are superior, while on the other datasets, they cannot compete with Stat methods. And what can help you to choose in an era of automatically generated time series all around.
Speaker: Petr Simecek recently moved to Brno and joined Central European Ai (CEAi) as a Machine Learning Engineer. Before that, he worked in the US as a Data Scientist for Google and The Jackson Laboratory.

Implications of adversarial environment on machine learning (Michal Nánási)

Spam is an adversarial problem. Adversaries at the other end of the internet connection are trying to get around your detection. Each time you deploy an anti-spam measure, adversaries are no longer making money. If your service is big enough they are motivated to go around your detection every time you improve it. More sophisticated adversaries can make your classifier worthless in less than 15 minutes. That is one of the reasons why you still see spam today.


In this talk, the we will talk about the problems you may encounter if you try to apply machine learning in adversarial environment; when an adversary is constantly trying to circumvent your detection. Talk will be focused less on specific models, and more on how this environment affects your workflow and the way you approach machine learning problems.


After finishing his PhD in Bioinformatics (FMFI UK, Bratislava), Michal Nánási worked more than 3 years at large tech company (over 1 billion of registered users) as software engineer, mostly working on protecting users from high-volume abuse with, and without machine learning.


Speech data mining: Not Yet Ready for Retirement (Honza Černocký)

Speech data mining is an important discipline of machine learning. In addition to classical ML and computer science components, it also sources other sciences such as physiology, lexicography, and phonetics, making it a funny inter-disciplinary domain. Similarly to other ML sub-fields, it has been turned upside-down in the recent years by the massive use of neural networks. Although their use in speech dates back to 2000, it is only around 2010 they took the ground and started to dominate the field.


Brno speech group has been through all these changes, sometimes following the others, sometimes defining the history. The talk will cover these developments as well as some new research trends.

ML Engineer’s look at insurance (Peter Zvirinský)

Insurance is one of the oldest applications of mathematical modeling. The first statistical models designed specifically for insurance date back to the 18th century. Ever since has insurance modeling been often considered a separate topic from general mathematics/statistics and it is usually taught as a separate field of study on most universities.


This talk will present an ML Engineer’s look at insurance and you will find out what makes insurance so different from other typical ML applications. In the course of this talk all components of a typical insurance model will be broken down and you will be shown methods which can be applied for modeling each component. You will also find out what a tail risk is and why it is so important to insurance companies. Lastly, you will be shown why sometimes using a traditional statistical approach might still be prefered to a modern ML approach, and how one wrong assumption regarding your data can lead you to completely erroneous conclusions.


Peter Zvirinský is a Machine Learning Engineer at CEAI, where he works on TowerStreet, which is CEAI’s cyber insurance venture. He is also pursuing his PhD in Theoretical Computer Science on Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles university.

3D Reconstruction in Wild (Martin Bujnak)

Photogrammetry is a seemingly magical process that can turn a set of photos into a detailed 3D model with only a PC. While not far from the truth, like most magic tricks, the details make the difference. In this talk Martin will cover how a pipeline for photogrammetry makes the difference between a poor reconstruction and an amazing one.


The talk will detail the technology behind and use of a specific photogrammetry tool, Reality Capture, and the use of that tool’s new SDK to extend the pipeline for better results. It will show how using an SDK to add instant, on-site, visual feedback during capture can make the process more reliable and successful.
While it might look magical, there are still many opened questions and opened problems to solve.


Martin Bujnak co-founded Capturing Reality which revolutionized process of 3D model creation from photos and laser scans.

Machine learning in adversarial environments for malware detection (Jakub Debski)

Recent discoveries in the field of neural networks and cheap parallel processing have enabled machine learning to be applied successfully to many data processing tasks. Its success has been so impressive that Machine Learning became a buzzword, and now every company tries to jump onto a “machine learning bandwagon” in order to be perceived as a “high-tech”. Unfortunately, too much marketing leads to too much gibberish.


This talk addresses recent claims from startup vendors and presents reasons why Machine Learning is not a silver bullet for malware detection. In IT security we have to contend with evasion techniques that are being developed in parallel to detection methods, and machine learning is no exception. The talk covers recent observations and results in this field and looks at evasion techniques from a security company’s perspective. It also explains why human oversight is still crucial in the classification process and why in adversarial environment a signature-less solutions face the same issues as the “old style anti-virus”.

The role of optimization in Machine Learning (Dominik Csiba)

Optimization is a key component of most of the machine learning methods. Current problems often feature large amounts of high-dimensional data fitted by a complex non-convex model, such as deep learning, which are very difficult to learn efficiently. Novel approaches arise every month to tackle these problems, but the training time is often still unsatisfactory. In this talk, I will present a few scenarios, where optimization is the main bottleneck – featuring questions such as: “What kind of problems are difficult for deep learning?”. The talk is aimed for general technical audiences, everybody is welcome!
