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 […]

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. Here are my highlights of the week, that I’d like to share with you. Geoscience I talked to some contacts that visited […]
