A huge motivation for us in continuing to study interactive Machine Learning (iML)  – with a human in the loop  (see our project page) is that modern deep learning models are often considered to be “black-boxes” . A further drawback is that such models have no explicit declarative knowledge representation, hence have difficulty […]

About Andreas Holzinger
Andreas and his Group work consistently on a synergistic combination of methodologies and approaches of two areas that offer ideal conditions towards unraveling problems in sensemaking of high-dimensional, complex data sets: Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Knowledge Discovery/Data Mining (KDD), with the goal of supporting human intelligence with machine learning – human-in-the-loop – to discover new, previously unknown insights into the data.

The CD-MAKE 2017 in the context of the ARES conference series was a full success in beautiful Reggio di Calabria.
In machine learning deep convolutional networks (deep learning) are very successful for solving particular problems  – at least when having many training samples. Great success has been made recently, e.g. in automatic game playing by AlphaGo (see the nature news here). As fantastic these approaches are, it should be mentioned that deep learning has […]

The Google Research Group  is always doing awesome stuff, the most recent one is on Federated Learning , which enables e.g. smart phones (of course any computational device, and maybe later all internet-of-things, intelligent sensors in either smart hospitals or in smart factories etc.) to collaboratively learn a shared representation model, whilst keeping all […]
Machine learning is the fastest growing field in computer science, and Health Informatics is amongst the greatest application challenges, providing benefits in improved medical diagnoses, disease analyses, and pharmaceutical development – towards future precision medicine. Talk announcement: Friday, 12th May, 2017, 10:00, Seminaraum 137, Parterre, Inffeldgasse 16c Integrated interactomes and pathways in precision medicine by […]
Many services of our every day life rely meanwhile on machine learning – a field of science and a powerful technology that allows machines to learn from data; a very nice info graphic by the Royal Society – interactive with a quiz – can be found here: Royal Society Infographic “What is machine learning?” This […]
An excellent podcast which I can fully recommend to my students is the Machine Learning Guide by Tyler RENELLE (Tensor Flow). This series aims to teach the high level fundamentals of machine learning with a focus on algorithms and some underlying mathematics, which is really great. http://ocdevel.com/podcasts/machine-learning
