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...

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...

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...

Reducing World Hunger. Deep Learning in Humanitarian Work.

Category : Data Science, Deep Learning, Use-Cases

Namaste! Recently I started a new project. Together with Deutsche Welthungerhilfe e.V. I am investigating how we can reduce world hunger with Deep Learning. Yes, I expect Deep Learning to have a huge impact on global humanitarian work. In the near future, that is. The idea is very straightforward. The Child Growth Monitor is a mobile...

Namaste! Doom and me. Me and Doom. This seems to be a never-ending love-story! I am very thankful that I got invited by the Chair of Games Engineering at Würzburg University for a talk. Thank you, Sebastian von Mammen! Well, what did I talk about in that almost-four-hours session? Right. Doom. Games Development. Artificial Intellige...

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! I am writing this article on a very silent evening after a very productive day. You know… Doing things. Learning things. Teaching things. Gathering knowledge and applying it. And what is the result? A word-of-the day. You want to know what it is? It is „bag-of-notes“. I will talk about that later. But let m...

Deep Learning and Diseases

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

Namaste! Today will be all about infectious diseases! Well… Simulated and non-deadly ones! There is a nice article on Wikipedia about Compartmental models in epidemiology. I found it intriguing. Epidemiology is a mix of medicine, biology, demography, and environmental social sciences. People in that area are very interested in ...

Doom, Deep Learning und Indoor-Navigation

Category : Allgemein, Deep Learning, Use-Cases

ViZDoom ist schon richtig genial. Hinter dem Namen, der so leicht von der Zunge geht, steckt sehr viel. Doom. Deep Learning. Indoor Navigation. Eine Forschungsplattform. Ein internationaler Wettbewerb. Und vor allen Dingen Erinnerungen an meine Jugend. Da fange ich an. In meiner Jugend. Etwas Persönliches. Ich gehöre wahrscheinlich...
