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...

Namaste! I just came back from the beautiful mediterranean island of Mallorca. Business-trip. Vacation will be soon. Part of my Deep Learning activities is educating people about Artificial Intelligence, its tools and its applications. I got invited by Mayflower to hold a workshop. This astonishing company from Würzburg did its year...

Namaste! A while ago… In one of my recent blog-posts… I told the story of me attending the Stuttgart.AI meetup. A detail of that story was inspiration. Somehow I got motivated to dive again into the Deep Reinforcement Learning topic. And as you know me… Inspiration leads to code! And code leads to me telling you abo...

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...

Namaste! In my last blog-post I wrote about Deep Learning and diseases. I showed a way to use a simulator in order to generate a large data-set for a Neural Network that analyzes diseases. Because you need large data-sets for Deep Learning, right? This is a good moment to focus on Machine Learning and Deep Learning. The statement abo...
