  12. • Machine Learning is as valuable as how exploitable its

    results are. • Lagging behind in some areas: • Visualization of clusters • Data drift • Results Assurance • Biased data 2017 Big Data Coruña. Statistical inference for big-but-biased data More work is needed on: • Feature engineering • Regression • Anomaly detection • Practical non convex optimization • Effective parameter selection • Scalable transfer learning • Data integration • Data visualization Reliable Machine Learning

  17. Size matters

  18. • The study of methodologies that increase the scalability of

    ML principles and algorithms. • Scalability should be seen as an abstract concept that not only includes the case of dealing with huge amounts of data points. • Just measuring the challenge in storage units will be a narrow minded view that will be oblivious to the challenge that current times is putting on the shoulders of ML Networks of AI systems Scalability
  19. • Models that can learn under privacy and anonimity constraints

    • Share parameter values, not data • Using aggregated data • Adequate accuracy? • Private data reconstruction? Privacy-preserving ML D. Fernández-Francos, O. Fontenla-Romero, A. Alonso-Betanzos.
