In our next MünsteR R-user group meetup on March 5th, 2018 Frank Rühle will talk about bioinformatics and how to analyse genome data. You can RSVP here: http://meetu.ps/e/DDY1B/w54bW/f Next-Generation sequencing and array-based technologies provided a plethora of gene expression data in the public genomics databases. But how to get meaningful information and functional implications out of this vast amount of data? Various R-packages have been published by the Bioconductor user community for distinct kinds of analysis strategies.
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.
The plumber package for R makes it easy to expose existing R code as a webservice via an API (https://www.rplumber.io/, Trestle Technology, LLC 2017). You take an existing R script and make it accessible with plumber by simply adding a few lines of comments. If you have worked with Roxygen before, e.g. when building a package, you will already be familiar with the core concepts. If not, here are the most important things to know:
These are my sketchnotes for Sam Charrington’s podcast This Week in Machine Learning and AI about Philosophy of Intelligence with Matthew Crosby: https://twimlai.com/twiml-talk-92-learning-state-representations-yael-niv/ Sketchnotes from TWiMLAI talk #92: Philosophy of Intelligence with Matthew Crosby You can listen to the podcast here. This week on the podcast we’re featuring a series of conversations from the NIPs conference in Long Beach, California. I attended a bunch of talks and learned a ton, organized an impromptu roundtable on Building AI Products, and met a bunch of great people, including some former TWiML Talk guests.
I have written another blogpost about Looking beyond accuracy to improve trust in machine learning at my company codecentric’s blog: Traditional machine learning workflows focus heavily on model training and optimization; the best model is usually chosen via performance measures like accuracy or error and we tend to assume that a model is good enough for deployment if it passes certain thresholds of these performance criteria. Why a model makes the predictions it makes, however, is generally neglected.
These are my sketchnotes taken from the “This week in Machine Learning & AI” podcast number 88 about Using Deep Learning and Google Street View to Estimate Demographics with Timnit Gebru: Sketchnotes from TWiMLAI talk #88: Using Deep Learning and Google Street View to Estimate Demographics with Timnit Gebru
Recently, I announced my workshop on Deep Learning with Keras and TensorFlow. The next dates for it are January 18th and 19th in Solingen, Germany. You can register now by following this link: https://www.codecentric.de/schulung/deep-learning-mit-keras-und-tensorflow If any non-German-speaking people want to attend, I’m happy to give the course in English! Contact me if you have further questions. As a little bonus, I am also sharing my sketch notes from a Podcast I listened to when first getting into Keras:
