2020 Fast Approaching! – Friday Faves

Aaaand it’s gone. It’s starting out with one of my new projects and then a very nice wrap up of some cutting edge AI developments. Some Self Promotion! I started a Youtube series on learning machine learning for scientists. This is the first video in the series: Henry AI Labs’ Rewind A very insightful video […]

Machine Learning for Science – A Youtube Series

I’m starting a new project, where I take concepts from machine learning for science and do a short and focused deep dive into that topic. Why? I think modern data science and machine learning techniques, as well as, experiment design and systems thinking can benefit a wide range of scientists. I appreciate professors uploading their […]

Seismic I/O, Open Source, and Deep Double Descent – Friday Faves

This week in our Friday Faves, we have a new Python package for seismic compression and input/output, a conversation on the merits and caveats of open source and the confirmation that more data sometimes hurts machine learning models. Seismic Compression and I/O Equinor anounced the Python version of a compression algorithm for seismic data that […]

Fake AI and ML Tipps – Friday Faves

This week in the Friday Faves, we’re looking at some AI snake oil and a tip for training better models. A bit shorter, as I’m updating my website and my CV after handing in my PhD thesis. AI Snake Oil So if you want to call something that solves a problem somewhat and has an […]

Dear EAGE we have to talk!

Dear EAGE, you’re my professional society. We have history! Already during my Bachelor’s, I published an extended abstract with you. But you’ve changed. We need to talk about this. Please don’t mistake me for having illusions. As you know, I run this website and some others, I know the costs of doing business online. I’ve […]

I like oxygen – Explaining #teamtrees

The youtube phenomenon MrBeast recently reached 20 million subscribers, which lead to an idea going viral. People spammed MrBeast to plant 20 million trees to celebrate. So he assembled some friends. Now. During the climate strike, I’ve heard my […]

Going Meta, Geovizualizations and the PyTorch Dev Con – Friday Faves

In this week’s Friday Faves we have some very cool animations for geoscience outreach, some meta reinforcement learning and this year’s PyTorch Dev Con. Amazing Geoscience Outreach Animations These geoscience acquisition animations are everything the small comics never where. Alexandre Normandeau is a research scientist in Canada and obviously has a knack for visualization, visit […]
