Daimler AG and Mercedes Benz Consulting – Becoming more disruptive

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Speaking, Teaching

Namaste! Last week I spent two excellent days at Mercedes Benz Consulting. Down in the German South. Leinfelden-Echterdingen close to Stuttgart. It was great coming back. You know, my job is to travel and teach the „trinity“ Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Deep Learning being my specialty. Thi...

How to not get robbed – Use Deep Reinforcement Learning

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Deep Reinforcement Learning, Tutorial, Use-Cases

Namaste! I spent quite a lot of time in 2018 teaching and applying Deep Learning. Training and deploying Deep Neural Networks. It is rather difficult for me to count the number of people who went through my trainings and trained one Neural Network after the other. Currently, I am working on a plan for 2018: Teaching and applying Deep...

Namaste! Last week I had the pleasure of teaching at Data Science Retreat again. After introducing the current batch to the magic of Deep Learning a couple of weeks ago, I came back. AI-Guru returns. And I brought something great with me: Autoencoders, Generative Adversarial Networks and Triplet Loss. Something you might call Next Ge...

More about Point-Clouds and Deep Learning – A paper a day…

Category : Data Science, Deep Learning, Teaching, Use-Cases

Namaste! It is perfectly possible that I might start an article-series: „A paper a day keeps the doctor away“. Named after a potential first blog-post in that series. You see, Deep-Learning-for-a-living is not so much about training Neural Nets. I repeat that mantra like a prayer. Deep Learning is more about the whole get...

School of AI Meetup – Child Growth Monitor

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Speaking, Use-Cases

Namaste! A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Deep Learning in humanitarian work. Welthungerhilfe has the righteous goal to reduce world hunger to zero in the near future. Their project Child Growth Monitor is a very promising project that is definitely going to help. Yesterday, at our Würzburg School of AI Meetup, we talked about th...

A paper a day keeps the doctor away!

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning

Namaste! Remember the quote „an apple a day keeps the doctor away“? This rather silly saying expresses that you should make sure that you get enough vitamins on an everyday basis. In Deep Learning it is advised to keep up to date. I always tell people that one of the greatest challenges in Deep Learning is not the Neural ...

Weekend-pastime – Denoising some dirty texts

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Tutorial, Use-Cases

Namaste! This weekend I set aside a couple of hours for a nice pastime. I had a mission. Preparing the next release candidate of my Deep Learning library NGDLM. That was my original intention. After quite some refactoring and some stabilizing I got an idea. Why not testing NGDLM with a little challenge? So down into the development-d...

Namaste! I just came back from a two weeks tour through Germany. What happened? Deep Learning Training galore! In the very first week, I visited Data Science Retreat in Berlin. In the second week, I went to Paessler AG in Nuremberg. I still feel a little tired. But very, very accomplished. You know, one of the bigger parts of my busi...

Your journey towards Data Science

Category : Data Science, Deep Learning, Teaching

Namaste! I get a lot of messages on a regular basis. Messages from people all over the world. I am very humbled by their trust in my expertise. Thank you for that! There are many interests. One topic can be generalized to „how to become a Data Scientist?“. Tricky question! You know, my focus is Deep Learning. I usually as...
