Keynote & Break
9h25 - 9h30

Kevin Nelson
Developer Advocate

Thanks to machine learning and AI, applications are now being created that can see, hear, and understand the world around them. Learn how you can easily infuse AI into your business today. In addition to a guided walkthrough of easy-to-use machine learning APIs from Google Cloud: Cloud Vision, Cloud Video Intelligence, Cloud Speech, Cloud Natural Language, and Cloud Translation, we'll demonstrate how Google Cloud AutoML enables developers with limited machine learning expertise to train high quality models by leveraging Google’s state of the art transfer learning, and Neural Architecture Search technology.

10h55 - 11h20

Florent Ramière
Technical Account Manager

The Kafka ecosystem goes way beyond the brokers: Kafka Connect, Kafka Stream and KSQL are amazing tools!
I propose to walk you through the implementation of all these components with a focus on streaming and monitoring.
Come Join me to learn how to leverage Kafka to put your data in motion!

Thomas Lamirault
Software Architect

At BlaBlaCar we have built a streaming platform to have fast insights about the usage of our services. I will show you how BlaBlaCar builds an automatic access log streaming analysis to improve the security and gain fine-grained knowledge of the platform usage.

12h35 - 13h50

Pierre Villard
Solution Architect

Apache NiFi provides a revolutionary data flow management system with a broad range of integrations with existing data production, consumption, and analysis ecosystems, with robust data delivery and provenance infrastructure. This talk will mainly focus on how to deal with workflows lifecycle.

Aurélia Nègre & Alberto Guggiola
Data Scientists

Ever been stuck in a data science use case where any approach seems too hard? Graph theory, describing a system just in terms of nodes and links, could be your answer! In the practical example we’ll show, we’ll try to find data science communities and their leaders in LinkedIn. Challenge accepted?

Jacek Laskowski

If you want to get even slightly better performance of your structured queries (regardless whether they are batch or streaming) you have to peek at the foundations of Dataset API starting with QueryExecution. That's where any query ends up at and my talk starts. The talk will show you what stages a structured query has to go through before execution in Spark SQL. I'll be talking about the different phases of query execution and the logical and physical optimizations. In the end, I'll do a live coding session to show the steps to write logical and physical optimizations in Scala.

16h25 - 16h45

Sylvain Friquet
Software Engineer

This talk will cover how we redesigned our analytics API from the ground up to serve metrics in near real time from billions of events per day. We'll go through the tools we considered for the job to how we actually implemented our solution, starting from the datastore up to the whole data pipeline and its API, leveraging Golang, Kubernetes, GCP and Citus.

Adrien Morvan & Cristina Oprean
Machine Learning Engineers

Photobox business is about pictures and derived products: we process 2 to 6 millions photos on a daily basis. To suggest adapted products to our customers we need to handle and better understand the content of their pictures.

Since the number of personal photos has greatly increased thanks to the development of digital cameras and smartphones, scalability is a must.
The goal of this presentation is to introduce our large scale automatic photo labelling pipeline.

18h00 - 19h15

9h25 - 9h30

Olivier Bergeret
Solutions Architect Manager

Build, train, and deploy machine learning models at scale

Machine learning often feels a lot harder than it should be to most developers because the process to build and train models, and then deploy them into production is too complicated and too slow.

Amazon SageMaker includes modules that can be used together or independently to build, train, and deploy your machine learning models.

10h55 - 11h20

Charles Ollion
Co-founder

Beyond the AI hype, significant new possibilities in the world of computer vision have arisen in the last few years. However, deploying computer vision solutions still requires expert vision knowledge, business understanding, solid engineering and smart processes. I’ll expose the challenges of computer vision applied to a vertical domain such as fashion, and how we solved them at Heuritech.

Ana Peleteiro Ramallo
Data Science Director

In recent years, deep learning (DL) has proven to be a transformative force that has made impressive advances in different fields. In fact, within the area of natural language processing (NLP), deep learning has outperformed many former state of the art approaches, such as in machine translation or named entity recognition (NER). In this talk I will present various deep learning algorithms and architectures for NLP, with examples of how they can be leveraged to real world applications

Matthieu Blanc
VP Product

Data lineage is defined as a data life cycle that includes the data’s origin sand where it moves over time. It has become a crucial component of any data centric company, whether for documentation, regulatory compliance, data quality or business impact assessment. This talk will offer an overview of the different approaches to construct and visualize metadata and data lineage in a Big Data environment.

12h35 - 13h50

Sylvain Lequeux
Data Engineer

Out of curiosity, ask the other people in the conference room who has already developped neural networks: you will see a lot of hands up. Then ask them how many of those models run in production: epic fail.

Come and see a solution to train and deploy TensorFlow models in the cloud using Google CloudML.

Pauline Ballereau & Nicolas Laille
Data Scientist & Data Engineer

A data scientist journey to industrialization of machine learning by Air France

Samah Ghalloussi
Data scientist, Entrepreneure

I tested several platforms for creating chatbots with the objective of simulating a patient coming to the emergency room so that medical students could ask questions to establish a diagnosis.

The major advances in the field of Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence have seen the emergence of chatbot platforms to develop your own agent from a web service.

I will present 4 platforms from major technology companies offering their service in French.

Pablo Lopez & Pierre Sendorek
CTO & Data Scientist

During DataXDay, you'll hear a lot about machine learning and deep learning. But sometimes, combining those advanced techniques with a more ``traditional`` approach can enhance results in a spectacular way. See how, a data scientist and a software engineer, we managed to build an identity card recognition API.

16h25 - 16h45

Vincent Poncet
Solutions Engineer

Millions of people, objects and ‘things’ connecting with each other is changing the way organisations and consumers interact with each other and the environment around them. Data comes from different geographical locations and across multiple channels. Managing this explosion of high velocity dynamic data while maintaining customer privacy is a challenge with legacy systems.
