Deep Learning for Mail Processing

Jay Narhan, Data Scientist, Dataiku

While virtual assistants have never sounded more human and as cars become driverless, companies still have to deal with a massive amount of mail. From unsolicited mail and bills to registered mail, mail processing solutions are a necessity.

In an effort to bring AI to mail processing, Dataiku will present a prototype they have developed for a client in the insurance industry. Using Computer Vision and Deep Learning techniques, it automatically processes typed and hand-written letters to send them to the correct department within the organization.

The Journey from Data Illiterate to Data Science

Elena Salova, Digital Insights Data Scientist, Hitachi Vantara
Leo Cardinaals, Team Lead, Northern and Central EMEA – Digital Insights Solution Engineering, Hitachi Vantara

The transition from descriptive to predictive & prescriptive analytics is speeding up across digitally native industries, while more traditional industries are lagging behind. This transition often requires usage of machine learning techniques, working with big and often siloed data in a variety of formats. Many companies find this transition difficult and struggling to become a data-driven organization.

In this seminar, we review barriers for implementation, best practices, interesting use cases and success stories coming from various industries.  We will also address key pain points for Data Engineers, Data Scientists and Business Stakeholders and show how they can be solved.
