Accenture was hosted in the AI Industry Connect Talk series, for the month of May. The series are organised by SKEL | The AI lab, Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications at NCSR Demokritos and supported by ahedd DIH. The talk was held online on Wednesday 11 May 2022, at 14.00 with invited speakers, Dr Gerasimos Mileounis, ML Engineering Principal Director and Mr Andreas Georgopoulos, Machine Learning Engineering Manager.
Talk title: MLOps in the High Tech Industry

Abstract: The ability to connect an enterprise’s internal (e.g CRM, ERP) and external (e.g Web) data points to create a single, unified, and enhanced view of the customer profile (e.g Contact/Person Data, Org/Company Data) is a key challenge for B2B organisations. Entity Resolution (ER) focuses on the creation of such systematic linkages between these disparate data records, via the adaptation of AIML methodologies and frameworks, which analyse and resolve relationships through complex networks of people, organisations, and places.
In real life applications, the quality of the acquired data is often inadequate, due to data incompleteness (partial data), redundancy (overlapping data), inconsistency (conflicting data) or incorrectness (data errors). Furthermore, the Big Data characteristics impose constraints, in terms of volume, variety, velocity and veracity. Data sources are known to constantly increase in content, showcase heterogeneity, and are dynamically changing with differing quality. During this seminar, we will be taking a closer look at a novel approach for AI based stewardship and Entity Resolution, which aims at tackling the aforementioned issues in a real-world application scenario. Our strategy will primarily include mainly the process of matching records stored at the same (deduplication) or different (record linkage) data sources.
The AI Industry Connect Talks series was launched in March 2021 by SKEL | The Artificial Intelligence Lab, Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications at NCSR Demokritos and is supported by ahedd Digital Innovation Hub. Through this series of talks, we aim to bring AI innovation to the forefront and inform wider audiences of the endless possibilities. Domain professionals tell us how the Industry applies scientific results in real-life.
