#100DaysOfCode: Machine Learning & Data Visualization

#100DaysOfCode: Machine Learning & Data Visualization

2018 seemed to be the year of challenges going viral on the web. Most of them were plain stupid and/or dangerous. However, one viral challenge I did like: #100DaysOfCode 1. Code minimum an hour every day for the next 100 days.2. Tweet your progress every day with the #100DaysOfCode hashtag.3. Each day, reach out to … Continue reading #100DaysOfCode: Machine Learning & Data Visualization

Dragonflies and neural networks

Dragonflies and neural networks

Did you know that dragonflies are one of the most effective and accurate predators alive? And that while it has a brain consisting of very few neurons. Neuroscientist Greg Gage and his colleagues studied how a dragonfly locks onto its preys and captures it within milliseconds. Actually, a dragonfly seems to be little more than … Continue reading Dragonflies and neural networks

Super Resolution: A Photo Enhancer AI

In the video below, one of my favorite YouTube channels (Two Minute Papers) discusses a new super resolution project where academic scholars taught a neural network to improve low quality photo's. The researchers took the same picture with multiple camera's of varying quality and allowed a neural network to learn how the lowest quality pictures can be adjusted to … Continue reading Super Resolution: A Photo Enhancer AI

The wondrous state of Computer Vision, and what the algorithms actually “see”

The wondrous state of Computer Vision, and what the algorithms actually “see”

The field of computer vision tries to replicate our human visual capabilities, allowing computers to perceive their environment in a same way as you and I do. The recent breakthroughs in this field are super exciting and I couldn't but share them with you. In the TED talk below by Joseph Redmon (PhD at the University of … Continue reading The wondrous state of Computer Vision, and what the algorithms actually “see”

Cryptocurrency and Blockchain explained by 3Blue1Brown

Grant Sanderson is the owner of YouTube channel 3Blue1Brown, which aims to explain math and stats concepts in an entertaining way. Using animations, Grant grasps difficult problems and explains them in understandable language. I was already familiar with the great explanatory videos on Linear Algebra and Neural Networks, but this new video on cryptocurrencies and … Continue reading Cryptocurrency and Blockchain explained by 3Blue1Brown

GAN: Generative Adversarial Networks

GAN: Generative Adversarial Networks

A Generative Adversarial Network, GAN in short, is a machine learning architecture where two neural networks compete against each other. One of them functions as a discriminator, seeking to optimize its classification of data (i.e., determine whether or not there is a cat in a picture). The other one functions as a generator, seeking to best … Continue reading GAN: Generative Adversarial Networks
