Focus on machine learning

21 December, 2015 – 11:43 Magnus Atterfors from RISE attended SICS Data Science Day during SICS Software week. We asked him for a reflection about the day. Here are his thoughts.  Machine learning, a technology in which a computer program itself learns to recognize and classify images, patterns and voices, has proven to be useful in several areas. SICS Data Science Day, a part of SICS Software Week, focused on machine learning with neural networks, especially what is called Deep Learning. Deep Learning really took off after an image recognition contest in 2012. It was found that this stepwise process, in which more complex characteristics of the image are represented, performed better than alternative methods. Danny Bickson, Dato Inc, was keynote speaker during the SICS Data Science Day. He spoke about…
