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...

Abandon all hope, Germany? Thoughts on our German Attitude.

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Deep Learning

Abandon hope all ye who enter here. Dante Aligheri, Divine Comedy Namaste! I recently talked about Deep Learning in Germany. Let me continue… USA and China are AI goliaths. They are way ahead of good old Germany. They have the manpower. They have the money. They have it all. Is this a reason to throw in the towel? Germany is d...

Namaste! I wrote parts of this article in a tiny, little vegan café in beautiful Hamburg. I love that city! I got invited by iCompetence to attend the Digital Intelligence Conference 2018 as a speaker. I am very thankful for this opportunity to speak! My topic was Deep Learning in Germany. What an exciting topic! In the following yo...

People want you to believe that Deep Learning is a hype

Category : Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Use-Cases

Namaste! Deep Learning… The Machine Learning technique that is based on Artificial Neural Networks. It is very easy to use. Get and clean up your data. Find a problem with that data. Create a Neural Network architecture that could solve the problem. And then… Train, train, train. Ten minutes, an hour, over night, for a co...
