Deep Learning Playground openly available

TensorFlow – part of the Google brain project – has recently open sourced on GitHub a nice playground for testing and learning the behaviour of deep learning networks, which also can be used following the Apache Licence: http://playground.tensorflow.org Background: TensorFlow is an open source software library for machine learning. There is a nice video “large […]


Interactive machine learning for health informatics: when do we need the human-in-the-loop? Machine learning (ML) is the fastest growing field in computer science, and health informatics is among the greatest challenges. The goal of ML is to develop algorithms which can learn and improve over time and can be used for predictions. Most ML researchers […]

Yahoo Labs released largest-ever annonymized machine learning data set for researchers

In January 2016, Yahoo announce the public release of the largest-ever machine learning data set to the international research community. The data set stands at a massive ~110B events (13.5TB uncompressed) of anonymized user-news item interaction data, collected by recording the user-news item interactions of about 20M users from February 2015 to May 2015. see: […]

A proof of the importance of the human-in-the-loop

Again machine learning made it to the title page of Science: A nice further proof for the importance of the human-in-the-loop by a paper of Lake, B. M., Salakhutdinov, R. & Tenenbaum, J. B. 2015. Human-level concept learning through probabilistic program induction. Science, 350, (6266), 1332-1338. Whilst humans can learn new concepts often from a […]

Workshop “Machine Learning for Health Informatics” November, 30, 2015

Workshop Machine Learning for Health Informatics Machine learning is a large and rapidly developing subfield of computer science that evolved from artificial intelligence (AI) and is tightly connected with data mining and knowledge discovery. The ultimate goal of machine learning is to design and develop algorithms which can learn from data. Consequently, machine learning systems […]
