CEO Robbie Allen joins the “How AI will Impact Organizational Structures” panel at SXSW 2019. He’s sitting between Nancy Giordano of Play Big Inc. and Ron Green of KUNGFU.AI.
If you missed ODSC West in 2018, then you missed our CEO Robbie Allen give his talk on deploying machine learning in the enterprise. But fear not! The good folks at ODSC have provided video of his presentation.
In this talk, Robbie covers the importance (and definition) of good data and offers guidance for evaluating machine learning opportunities. Take a look!

The Infinia ML team heads into the new year with gratitude for what was and excitement for what’s next.
Thank you to our clients, employees, friends, and supporters for making 2018 Infinia ML’s best year yet!
Here are a few highlights from the last 12 months:
We Won Awards
The Triangle’s first Machine Learning Symposium recently brought together business and academic leaders for frank, focused, and fun conversations about the increasingly impactful technology.
Machine learning (ML) is about finding patterns in data, but you don’t have to use an advanced algorithm to recognize one clear trend: from leading campuses to top companies, ML is on the rise.
That’s one clear takeaway from Symposium’s speakers, who ranged from top ML researchers to industry-leading practitioners. The event was a joint collaboration of Infinia ML, the Durham machine learning company where I work, and UNC’s Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise.
Infinia ML Chief Scientist Larry Carin Raises NeurIPS/NIPS Research Contributions to 44 Papers Since 2004
MONTREAL, December 3, 2018 – Infinia ML, an advanced machine learning company that delivers transformative automation solutions and data science to enterprise businesses, is celebrating more accepted research papers at the world’s most prestigious machine learning conference.
The Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS, formerly NIPS), which has been compared to the AI world’s version of SXSW and CES, accepted less than 21% of submitted papers in 2018.
Among the accepted works is a paper co-authored by Infinia ML Research Scientist Hongteng Xu. “Distilled Wasserstein Learning for Word Embedding and Topic Modeling” proposes a machine learning method for hospital patient admission records that could help predict mortality and recommend procedures.
Dr. Xu and his colleagues are conference veterans. Infinia ML Chief Scientist Larry Carin co-authored three papers at NeurIPS this year, including Xu’s. In 2017 he was the event’s most-published researcher with ten papers. Altogether, Dr. Carin has contributed 44 papers to the conference since 2004. Infinia ML Data Scientist Ricardo Henao has contributed eleven since 2009.
This year’s NeurIPS conference is in Montreal through Saturday December 8th, 2018.
The Nov. 30 event will bring industry and academic leaders together with top students to explore new business applications for machine learning.
Chapel Hill, N.C. (Nov. 13, 2018)
The Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, in partnership with Infinia ML, an advanced machine learning company that delivers transformative automation solutions and data science to enterprise businesses, will host a cross-sector symposium on Friday, Nov. 30 to advance the field of machine learning. Academic and business leaders will come together with students to connect the possibilities of cutting-edge ML research with the realities of practical implementation.
Our Director of Engineering David Rasch has won a 2018 Triangle Software Developer Award! Specifically, the award for Software Development Leader.
The awards, which are sponsored by HireNetworks, “recognize the technical talent that has contributed to the incredible growth we’ve seen in the Triangle.” Nominees were judged on factors including communication, positive attitude, depth and breadth of technical expertise, and innovation.
Congratulations, David – it’s good to see you recognized for the qualities we see in you every day.
Are you a software engineer/developer looking to learn more about machine learning? On Tuesday, October 30th, join experts from the Triangle’s top machine learning company, Infinia ML, and Duke University’s machine learning lab for an intense bootcamp built specifically for you.
Infinia ML Chief Scientist Larry Carin is the co-author of a new paper in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), one the premier medical journals. The paper, On Deep Learning for Medical Image Analysis, is paired with a video explaining how convolutional neural networks (CNNs) work.
You’ll see Dr. Carin featured with other experts in the video, which is framed by the task of “automatically grading retinal images for diabetic retinopathy.” In case you’re not familiar, Mayo Clinic explains that it’s “a diabetes complication that affects eyes. It’s caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina).”
