1. My first Kaggle competition

    I knew of the existence of Kaggle since I started studying Machine Learning. Unfortunately, during that time I did not have the experience nor the time to take part to any competition. But in last semester I made some good experiences that helped me to develop my skills in the field. At the same time, an interesting real world problem was published as a competition on the  Kaggle platform. And so I realised that that was the best one to give myself a challenge. Planet Labs is a private company that owns the multitude of imaging-satellites that orbit around the Earth. These satellites form a constellation Read more…

  2. A first look to ImageNet

    In the last years a lot of coverage was given to Artificial Intelligence. During the last months of my Bachelor’s, reading more and more about the successful applications, I started to feel really curious about that area of AI called Deep Learning. Actually, Deep Learning is a sub-field of the more general Machine Learning, that is the field of Computer Science which “gives a computer the ability to learn without be explicitly programmed” (Wikipedia) or, in different words, aims to design programs that can improve their performance by “learning” from examples (a better and easier definition here). The theories of Deep Learning focus on building Deep Neural Networks (DNN), which Read more…
