2019 SPEAKER & SCHEDULE

2018 Keynote Speaker:

Ankit Gupta is a machine learning data scientist at Crisis Text Line. He designed and implemented an AI-powered triage algorithm to serve 94% of high-risk texters in under five minutes.

By leveraging sentiment analysis techniques, Crisis Text Line triages high-risk texters and establishes a stack ranking mechanism. The solution entails understanding keywords and phrases in close association with imminent risk conversations. By definition, imminent risk conversation is one involving a texter resulting in a suicide attempt or self-harm. You can read more about the solution here.
