Latest news for Munich's Data Scientists
Abstract: My Robot can learn – using Reinforcement Learning to teach my Robot A new star is rising at the machine learning horizon: reinforcement learning (RL). The concept entails an agent and an incentive-based training system. The agent learns via incentives and improves its behaviour – a self-learning system using simple rules – leading to[…]
Abstract: From Pokémon to Donald Trump – Mining and Visualizing weird stuff In his talk, Markus talks about extracting, analyzing and visualizing data from unusual sources. He will talk about two of his projects: First he’ll talk about using a Pokémon Go bot to gather and processing data on 250k spawns of Pokémon in Munich[…]
Abstract: Time series shootout – ARIMA vs. LSTM When it comes to time series forecasting, we usually resort to time-proven, reliable, strikingly elegant in her simplicity ARIMA. In R, with auto.arima, you can get a decent forecast in a single line of code. In a world where deep learning breaks new records almost every week (it seems), you[…]
Abstract: Transfer Learning for Fun and Profit Transfer learning is exciting because it unlocks solutions that weren’t feasible a few years ago. In fact, choices to compose from pre-trained models for computer vision tasks became abundant. In this talk, we will explore how to make these choices for image classification and feature extraction. The analysis is[…]
Abstract: Make hyperparameters great again While tuning hyperparameters of machine learning algorithms is computationally expensive, it also proves vital for improving their predictive performance. Methods for tuning range from manual search to more complex procedures like Bayesian optimization. This talk will demonstrate the latest methods for finding good hyperparameter-sets within a set period of time for[…]
Abstract: How data literate is your audience? Data in the hands of a few data experts can be powerful, but data at the fingertips of many is what will be truly transformational. It is crucial to increase data access for business experts, but is getting the data out really all that we have to do[…]
This talk is centered around building real-time and lightening responsive news search engine. From streaming data processing to system architecture, all bits and pieces will be covered. Specially in case of news articles streaming in the system, challenges and whole ecosystems of aggregation to scoring algorithm will be introduced. Realisation of plug and play micro-service[…]
Abstract: Word Embeddings – the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Word embeddings are the new magic tool for natural language processing. Without cumbersome preprocessing and feature design they are able to capture the semantics of language and texts, simply by being fed with lots of data. So they say. We applied word embeddings –[…]
Since we started our meetups in 2013 we have seen an impressive growth of our community. Although we already count more than 2000 members on our meetup-page, we welcome three new members every day, on average.
With the foundation of the club in 2015, we now aim at pushing the numbers even further, making Munich the #1 Data Science Location in Europe.
Great Datageeks Meetups
We are the executive board of the Munich Datageeks e.V.
Some people train dogs, some horses. I failed in training my cats, so I tried to start with some simpler things like computer systems.
