Infoshare 2019

This entry will be in English – just to share thoughts with the ones, who don’t know Polish;)

It’s been the first time as I have attend this conference. This event is leaded periodicaly since 2007.
Back then 200 participants of Infoshare took part in programming workshops at Gdańsk University of Technology. Today Infoshare is the biggest Tech Conference in Central and Eastern Europe. The 12th edition of the event that took place in 2018 gathered over 6000 participants, almost 200 start-ups and over 200 speakers and investors.

I remember first IT conferences, which took place at Gdańsk University of Technology. The name was Innovision and the main concern of them was presenting new technologies used by the biggest companies in Poland. I remember „Procter and Gamble” presenting their software for managing supplies of their warheouse and man talking proudly about napkins and pampers;) – for us it was funny as all of us this time were students, without even thinking that we would ever need such a things;) However there were also advertising companies like the one from Warsaw showing us impressive approach to creating advertisements for financial institutions.

Infoshare has quite a different perspective – it is a mix of new technologies, best practises for both developers, administrators (especially security specialists), as well as job fairs, startups context and possibility to meet new people, exchange knowledge between companies, win impressive prizes.

We decided to take a closer look at DataTech path – as terms as BigData, Bussiness Intelligence and usage of Machine Learning interest us the most since last year.

Ideas presented by LPP company on how to use RDIF technology, for making job in their clothing stores easier, was really interesting. It really saves time for unpacking incoming packages and localize all clothes in warhouse, fitting room, shop using RDIF sensor.

Their next presentation about the concept of Bussiness Intelligence is very similar to standard ERP solution with a subtle mix of Machine Learning (used only as statistics functions for determining amount of clothes, which should be delivered to proper shop). However this solution enables them to predict how fashion can look like next season and what will be shopping trends. It is a shame that they didn’t show their analysis called 'DNA-fashion’, which is described in more details here:

Next interesing presentation was usage of „Apache Kafka: Introduction, Overview and Use Cases”. For us it was the first insight of this technology and we have already found good usage of it in combination with our HVR replication and Actian X db. Now, we’ll surely take about 3 months of testing this new approach.

As year 2018 was dedicated for NLP (Natural Language Processing), it couldn’t miss some presentations related to this topic. The lecture „Combining Deep Learning with Pattern Discovery for log monitoring” seemed to be prepeared especially for us – as we are still looking for better appropach to analyse our application logs in Nagios. Extracting the rules of creating log files by decisive, binary trees will surely help us in this task.

„Industrial data and machine learning pipelines” showed us simple possibility of implementing neural networks algorithm of obstacles detection for our Rapaberry PI robot. Surely we will use it next year on „Baltic Robo Wars”.

Next day was for me a „Hobby Day” – so I saw presentation of Tooploox company „Comixify: Turning videos into comics”. It was amazing presentation of how to use algorithms for image processing with combination of neural networks to create comics from movies on the basis of „Star Wars”. Short and easy explanation of their algorithm might be found here:

And in more details –

Next presentation was a little bit more terrifying: „Prywatność, a uczenie maszynowe. Problemy, rozwiązania i pułapki.” by is Polish company, which main concern is IT security. We found out that in fact all GPRD, RODO and other mechanisms, which should ensure your anonymity in net can be easily hacked using machine learning and in fact there is not such a thing as anonymity in Internet.

Also such well known phising could be already improved by neural networks as described here:

that human can be cheated easily by automatically generated texts as shown below:

Presentation of Venkat Subramaniam „It could be heaven or it could be hell” proved us that knowledge of many programming languages and mixing them in order to achive better, faster and more reliable source code is a must nowadays. There should be no excuse for learning new language if you find out that your daily tasks can be implemented faster and with less error prone.

Several marketing presentations, which I saw in meanwhile, unfortunately were found by me as useless. Many words without specific knowledge ….

At the end I visited several stands of different companies – starting from FABLab – very interesting initiative for passionates of DYI. More info can be found here:

Surely we wil come to visit them with all my family.

Next was startup called „DekoEko”, which was a upcycling company. As they say about themselves:

„We propose an innovative upcycling platform which will completely change the way you think about waste. We turn waste into profit by facilitating the highest possible jump in value – from zero to a market-ready product. „

Indeed their products are very innovative, creative and just nice for eyes. Check for yourself on their www :

I have also visited my company „Lufthansa Systems Poland” – presenting our robot Pepper and flight simulator as well as VR googles.
