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 […]

Something for a Long Trip or Unwind during the Holidays – Friday Faves

It’s the holiday season, so let’s keep this Friday Fave short, with a fave that keeps on giving. Who’s Hannah Fry? Hannah Fry is a mathematician that uses math to model human behaviour. She’s also extremely good at communicating complex math concepts in several youtube videos and Podcast episodes. This is her lecture at the […]

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 […]

A human artificial neural network, BeatSaber, and proper Time Series Prediction – Friday Faves

Excuse the break, but I had my thesis to finish, but that is the topic for another post. In this Friday Faves, we have a solid mix of a human neural network, playing BeatSaber without VR headsets using machine learning, and a new scikit for time series learning. The Stilwell Brain The series Mind Field […]

Interactive Viz² and Differentiable Machine Learning – Friday Faves

This Friday we’ll have a look at two interactive data viewers and a differentiable ML. Nd Array Viewer Napari is an interactive Nd array Viewer with support for fast inspection and analysis of multidimensional data. Definitely something to pop out in a Jupyter notebook and take a look at the processed data. The Blog Post […]

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

I woke up to my Youtube subscriptions exploding with the hashtag #teamtrees. What is Team Trees? 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 […]
