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 […]

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 […]

TF2, Physics in GCNs and Aftershocks – Friday Faves

In this week’s Friday Faves, we have Tensorflow 2 dropping and a beautiful bonus, next level physics-based ML, and a problem with a Harvard deep learning paper. Tensorflow 2 for Researchers Tensorflow 2.0 dropped this week and it has Eager Execution (read “normal behaviour”) per default and the Keras API per default. If you’re familiar […]

GIS, Fossils and Loads of Data – Friday Faves

This week, we have loads of geoscience-y favourites. Between great Jupyter widgets, augmented reality and a huge new dataset to play with, in the Friday Faves. Geoscience and Python Martin Renou gave a fantastic talk about Jupyter Voila at EuroScipy. He tweeted out their newest developments in iPyLeaflet, which brings GIS capabilities to Jupyter. Once […]

Hide & Seek – Friday Faves

This week was a special week, as the SEG Annual Meeting 2019 in San Antonio was in full progress and the FORCE hackathon in Stavanger with an accompanying Symposium is in full progress.
