These are my sketchnotes for Sam Charrington’s podcast This Week in Machine Learning and AI about Learning State Representations with Yael Niv: https://twimlai.com/twiml-talk-92-learning-state-representations-yael-niv/ Sketchnotes from TWiMLAI talk #92: Learning State Representations with Yael Niv You can listen to the podcast here. In this interview Yael and I explore the relationship between neuroscience and machine learning. In particular, we discusses the importance of state representations in human learning, some of her experimental results in this area, and how a better understanding of representation learning can lead to insights into machine learning problems such as reinforcement and transfer learning.

Last night, the MünsteR R user-group had another great meetup: Karin Groothuis-Oudshoorn, Assistant Professor at the University of Twente, presented her R package mice about Multivariate Imputation by Chained Equations. It was a very interesting talk and here are my sketchnotes that I took during it: MICE talk sketchnotes Here is the link to the paper referenced in my notes: https://www.jstatsoft.org/article/view/v045i03 “The mice package implements a method to deal with missing data.
