Hands-On Workshops (Afternoon):
Open Source Web Research: Hands-On PAI Tradecraft and Tools
- Focusing on the countries of India and Russia, Diffeo’s analyst team will teach the latest PAI exploitation techniques to research foreign government interest in critical DoD supply chains and political leadership goals Tools include: managed attribution with Authentic8/Toolbox, Recorded Future, Basis multi-lingual analytics, and more.
Machine Learning Tutorial: Python Vector Embeddings for Entity-Entity Relations
- Diffeo’s machine learning team will provide a hands-on tutorial based in an iPython notebook adapted from our colleague Sameer Singh’s tutorial on vector embeddings for entity-to-entity relations. This clever use of matrix factorization combines unstructured documents with relations from a structured knowledge base to create dense vectors that encode the semantic meaning of relationships.
