H2O Driverless AI Featured at NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference 2019 and at Gartner Data & Analytics Summit 2019

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.  March 18th2019 —, the open source leader in AI and Machine Learning, today announced that H2O Driverless AI, the award-winning automatic machine learning platform, will be featured in two industry events this week: NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference and the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit. In addition, at NVIDIA’s event this week Jonathan McKinney, director of research at, will discuss accelerating machine learning on GPUs, and Navdeep Gill, Senior Machine Learning Software Engineer at, will speak about Explainable AI and practical machine learning interpretability techniques on March 20 and 21. At the Gartner summit, H2O Driverless AI will be featured at the Data Science and Machine Learning (DSML) Showdown on March 20.

Accelerating Automatic Machine Learning

H2O Driverless AI empowers data scientists to work on projects faster and more efficiently by using automation and state-of-the-art computing power to accomplish tasks that typically takes months in just minutes or hours. By delivering automatic feature engineering, model validation, model tuning, model selection and deployment, machine learning interpretability, time-series, NLP and automatic pipeline generation for model scoring, H2O Driverless AI provides companies with a data science platform that addresses the needs of a variety of use cases for every enterprise in every industry.


Key must-attend talks at NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference include:

  • “Implementing Machine Learning on GPUs”

  • Who: Jonathan McKinney, director of research,

  • When: Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 10:00 – 10:50am PT

  • Where: GPU Technology Conference 2019, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, 408 Almaden Blvd, San Jose, CA 95110

  • Room: 210E, Concourse Level

  • Topic: Many machine learning algorithms can benefit from the efficient fine-grained parallelism and high throughput of GPUs. Importantly, GPUs make it possible to complete training and inference much faster than possible on ordinary CPUs. This talk will share some recent developments in implementing machine learning on GPUs and show how to leverage’s H2O GPU edition to capture benefits from GPU acceleration. The session will also compare performance gains from GPUs with CPU performance.

“Practical Machine Learning Interpretability Techniques”

  • Who: Navdeep Gill, senior machine learning/software engineer at

  • When: Thursday, March 21 at 11:00 – 11:50 am PT

  • Where: GPU Technology Conference 2019, San Jose Marriott, 301 South Market Street, San Jose, CA 95113

  • Room: Ballroom 4, Level 2/Concourse Level

  • Topic: This presentation illustrates how to combine innovations from several sub-disciplines of machine learning research to train understandable, fair, trustable, and accurate predictive modeling systems. Techniques from research into fair models, directly interpretable Bayesian or constrained machine learning models, and post-hoc explanations can be used to train transparent, fair, and accurate models and make nearly every aspect of their behavior understandable and accountable to human users. Additional techniques from fairness research can be used to check for sociological bias in model predictions and to preprocess data and post-process predictions to ensure the fairness of predictive models. Finally, applying new testing and debugging techniques, often inspired by best practices in software engineering, can increase the trustworthiness of model predictions on unseen data. Together these techniques create a new and truly human-friendly type of machine learning suitable for use in business- and life-critical decision support.
