I had the privilege of attending a Deep Learning workshop by Silverpond a
week ago, courtesy of their scholarship. It was a 2-day event held at their
CBD office in Melbourne, taught by their in-house specialists: Noon and
Lyndon. The casual teaching environment coupled with a friendly bunch of
attendees made the affair an enjoyable one in multiple ways. Below, I present
a recap of my learning experience.
2017 brought continued growth in concern about the trustworthiness of
computing systems. The breadth of our work at Galois has grown
correspondingly. We opened a third office in Dayton, Ohio, grew past 70

and clients that have helped us successfully develop the projects and
intellectual contributions highlighted below. We’re excited to continue
the effort with you in 2018.

tooling in this space maturing to democratise the technology for practitioners
and end users.

Silverpond was engaged by CitiPower/Powercor to help make
sense of the data generated by their 1.2 million smart meters.
Our engagement began with exploratory data science use-cases
and developed into an intelligent, scalable fault detection platform that
advises safety engineers of priority sites for inspection.
We had almost 25 attendees for this weeks workshop, making for a buzzing
atmosphere in the office as a room full of students went from an introduction
of foundational principles to building their own projects by the end of
