Hardcore Data Science, London 2016

The first edition of Hardcore Data Science in Europe featured 12 outstanding sessions. My co-organizer, Angie Ma of ASI deserves much of the credit for recruiting many of the speakers. We had talks on machine learning techniques (deep / transfer / reinforcement / ensemble / semisupervised) applied to a variety of data sets (images, text, video, event data) and settings (advertising, media, ecommerce, health, environment, finance, etc.). A summary can be found below.
