Golang Worst Practices - Oliver Powell

This event is brought to you by Go Singapore. GoSG is a meetup for the Go programming enthusiasts in Singapore.

Name: Oliver Powell
Topic: Golang Worst Practices

Evolutionary biology teaches us that the avoidance of failure is a better strategy than the imitation of success. That's why you always remember your war stories so vividly. This talk is an opinionated tour of worst practices in Go and how to avoid them.

Oliver Powell is a senior platform developer at Brankas. In a previous life he was a full stack Clojure developer. These days he has traded functional programming and parenthesis for Go and Kubernetes. When he isn't struggling with YAML indentation, he is either running after small children, or reading about anthro-complexity. He lives in Cape Town, South Africa with his wife, son, and daughter.

Facebook x DSSG: Attributing Metric Variations with Statistical Models

Speaker: Sauvik Dutta
Data Science & Technical Analytics Lead, Facebook Singapore

To protect users, Facebook hires human reviewers to enforce content guidelines when machine learning systems are less confident in their decisions. Sauvik's team examines human review performance via multiple top-line metrics. One such metric is related to efficiency i.e. how fast a human reviewer is in reviewing content. These metrics may vary over time.

The core question: why is variance observed in these metrics? A non-trivial dip in such a metric could potentially indicate lower productivity and that poses risk. In other words, from a data perspective--what factors can be attribute to these metric movements to so as to 'fix' them individually?

Sauvik's talk will delve into a recipe for a good model that reliably informs the business on what to focus on. These include constituent steps like: data cleaning, feature selection, model diagnostics, and model evaluation, alongside alternative approaches.

Speaker Bio:
