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 […]

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 […]
