These are slides from a lecture I gave at the School of Applied Sciences in Münster. In this lecture, I talked about Real-World Data Science and showed examples on Fraud Detection, Customer Churn & Predictive Maintenance.

As with the other videos from our codecentric.ai Bootcamp (Random Forests, Neural Nets & Gradient Boosting), I am again sharing an English version of the script (plus R code) for this most recent addition on How Convolutional Neural Nets work. In this lesson, I am going to explain how computers learn to see; meaning, how do they learn to recognize images or object on images? One of the most commonly used approaches to teach computers “vision” are Convolutional Neural Nets.

In my last blogpost about Random Forests I introduced the codecentric.ai Bootcamp. The next part I published was about Neural Networks and Deep Learning. Every video of our bootcamp will have example code and tasks to promote hands-on learning. While the practical parts of the bootcamp will be using Python, below you will find the English R version of this Neural Nets Practical Example, where I explain how neural nets learn and how the concepts and techniques translate to training neural nets in R with the H2O Deep Learning function.

On November 7th, I’ll be in Munich for the W-JAX conference where I’ll be giving the talk that my colleague Uwe Friedrichsen and I gave at the JAX conference this April again: Deep Learning - a Primer. Let me know if any of you here are going to be there and would like to meet up! Slides from the original talk can be found here: https://www.slideshare.net/ShirinGlander/deep-learning-a-primer-95197733 Deep Learning is one of the “hot” topics in the AI area – a lot of hype, a lot of inflated expectation, but also quite some impressive success stories.

Here I am sharing the slides for a webinar I gave for SAP about Explaining Keras Image Classification Models with LIME. Slides can be found here: https://www.slideshare.net/ShirinGlander/sap-webinar-explaining-keras-image-classification-models-with-lime Keras is a high-level open-source deep learning framework that by default works on top of TensorFlow. Keras is minimalistic, efficient and highly flexible because it works with a modular layer system to define, compile and fit neural networks. It has been written in Python but can also be used from within R.
