Machine Learning

June 19-21, 2018 | São Paulo



Hear about the latest innovations to create real-world ML applications. See amazing demos. Speak with international experts.

PAPIs is community-driven: anyone can submit talk proposals (blind-reviewed by our committee) or ask questions to take discussions further; breaks between sessions are perfect to get to know fellow attendees, speakers, and top ML companies. Our most advanced presentations get published in PMLR.

PAPIs is really about bringing ML into use
— Danny Lange, VP of AI and ML at Unity

Get up to speed with some of the main topics of the conference with our 1-day workshops taking place on June 19. Our instructors will be teaching in classrooms of only up to 20 persons in an hands-on approach, to maximize interaction and so you can ask even more questions than in a conference setting.

The full schedules will be released shortly.

IMPORTANT: The workshops will not be at Wayra, they will be at the  Renaissance São Paulo Hotel, Al. Santos, 2233, São Paulo, SP, Brazil. 01419-002.


Deep Learning Kickstart

Deep Learning applications are at the leading edge of the current AI revolution. In this introductory course, you will get an overview of the basics of Deep Learning including core concepts of neural networks and practical implementation with Tensorflow and Keras.


Wide & Deep Recommender Systems

Recommender systems are the backbone of many businesses from Netflix to Twitter. In this advanced course, you will learn about Recommender Systems and how to train them. This includes working with large datasets, feature selection, and a deeper discussion of Wide & Deep Models. Implementations will be using Tensorflow and Tensorboard to monitor the computational graph.

I learnt so many things that I had dreams about it the night after.
