Title: Crowdsourcing ML + Update AMLD

Abstract: Using applied ML on a regular basis in non-CS projects is a challenge. Even straightforward applications of ML, such as image recognition, require continuous development and maintenance, which is costly and not generally rewarded in academia. To address this problem, I will demonstrate the concrete use of an ML crowdsourcing platform (AIcrowd, a spinoff from my lab) to continuously develop food recognition algorithms that are used on a daily basis in health and clinical cohorts. I’ll also give a brief update on AMLD.

Bio: Marcel Salathé is an associate professor at SV and IC. Before joining EPFL in 2015, he was an assistant professor at the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics at Pen State. Prior to that, he did a postdoc at Stanford and obtained his PhD at ETHZ. The digital epidemiology lab is based in Geneva at Campus Biotech and focusses increasingly on personalized nutrition.

The Center for Intelligent Systems at EPFL (CIS) is a collaboration among IC, ENAC, SB; SV and STI that brings together researchers working on different aspects of Intelligent Systems.
In order to promote exchanges among researchers and encourage the creation of new, collaborative projects, CIS is organizing a "Get to know your neighbors" series. Each seminar will consist of one short overview presentation geared to the general public at EPFL.   

The CIS seminar will take place live on Zoom:
