---- Talks ----

## Using Machine Learning to Imitate Human Behaviour in Betting

by Admond Lee, Data Scientist at Micron

It's often said that there are nine losses out of ten bets. In this talk, Admond will share his experience of building a machine learning model using XGBoost to imitate players' behaviour and some of the interesting results to profit from betting based on intuitive model interpretability.

## An Introduction to Explainable Machine Learning

by Ong Ming Lun, a Graduate Research Student at the National University of Singapore

State-of-the-art Machine Learning models have become immensely popular over the last few years. However, due to their complexity, they are often regarded as black-boxes. In this presentation, Ming Lun will put forward a case for Explainability to better understand Machine Learning models, creating an understanding that better aligns with human intuition.

---- Schedule ----

6.45 - 7.10pm: Doors open, mingling with pizza and drinks

7.10pm - 8.10pm: Talks

8.10pm - 9.00pm: Networking, free stickers, drinks

In our work and personal projects, there are interesting stories and insights to be gleaned, and sharing these experiences will make us richer in knowledge and also connect to each other. So come join #DrinkingCode for drinks and tech talks!
