New blogs hosted on our platform

Recently we introduced the option to host the blogs of our contributors directly on data-science.news. The first blog to be added is ADRIAN’S MACHINE LEARNING PAGE . It contains several of his projects, as well as tutorials in machine learning , data-science and algorithms. We really like his logo, with a funny looking robo-dog :   We welcome him and we list here some of his main projects : Naive Bayes Number Classification Mask R-CNN – review and benchmark of available implementations Building a Self-Driving Car Binary Image Classifier using Logistic Regression True ID – Neural…

Data Science Bowl – Lung Cancer Challenge

One year ago, the office of the U.S. Vice President spearheaded a bold new initiative, the Cancer Moonshot, to make a decade’s worth of progress in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment in just 5 years. In 2017, the Data Science Bowl will be a critical milestone in support of the Cancer Moonshot by convening the data science and medical communities to develop lung cancer detection algorithms. Using a data set of thousands of high-resolution lung scans provided by the National Cancer Institute, participants will develop algorithms that accurately determine when…

Big Data in Paris

This week we had the pleasure to attend the “Big Data” conference in Paris, at “Centre des conventions”. With 13000 visitors and 200 presenters, this year’s conferences have been a real success. We have seen the big names(Facebook, Google, Microsoft, SAP) but also over 30 start-ups in ML. The conference addresses the market of 500ME estimated in France actually(ATOS/IDC study), and pave the way for the estimated 18.5BE market predicted for 2021.

TensowFlow @ IBM

IBM has added Google’s TensorFlow  machine learning software library  to its PowerAI distribution. PowerAI is IBM’s software distribution for its S822LC for High Performance Computing platform, which is based on servers equipped with Power8 CPUs and NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs. When launched at SC16, PowerAI came with a variety of open source machine learning frameworks, including Theano, Torch, and Caffe, which are among the most widely used in the AI community. The implementations provided in PowerAI are able to take advantage of the S822LC hardware – in particular NVIDIA’s deeplearning-optimized P100 GPUs….
