What is the difference between AI and ML?

What is the difference between Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning? My students often ask the question: “What is the difference between Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) – and is deep learning (DL) belonging to either AI or ML?”. In the following I provide a I) brief answer, a II) formal short answer and […]

Digital Pathology: The world’s fastest whole slide scanner is now working in Graz

26.10.2017. Today, Prof. Kurt Zatloukal and his group together with the digital pathology team of 3DHISTECH, our industrial partner, completed the installation of the new generation panoramic P1000 scanner. The world’s fastest whole slide image scanner (WSI) is now located in Graz. The current scanner outperforms current state-of-the-art systems by a factor 6, which provides enormous […]

Transfer Learning to overcome catastrophic forgetting

In machine learning deep convolutional networks (deep learning) are very successful for solving particular problems [1] – 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 […]

Federated Collaborative Machine Learning

The Google Research Group [1] is always doing awesome stuff, the most recent one is on Federated Learning [2], 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 […]

Integrated interactomes and pathways in precision medicine by Igor Jurisica, Toronto

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 […]

What is machine learning?

Many services of our every day life rely meanwhile on machine learning. Machine learning is a very practical field and provides powerful technologies that allows machines (i.e. computers) to learn from prior data, to extract knowledge, to generalize and to make predictions – similar as we humans can do (see the MAKE intro). There is […]
