Completing a Data Science Project in 14 days – Fraud Detection Challenge Announcement

I’m challenging myself to do a full data science project on a Kaggle data set in 14 days – including data understanding, preprocessing, modeling and evaluation. I’m sharing this to make sure I actually do it and to show a realistic portrayal of what is possible in 14 days if you’re not a Kaggle grandmaster.……

Machine Learning Study Goals – January 2023: SHAP paper & getting started with Scala

In this monthly post, I tell you what I plan to study or improve on in the area of machine learning (including an update at the end of the month). Oh, and if you want to receive (bi)weekly updates on how I’m doing with these goals, consider subscribing to my newsletter πŸ˜‰ Goal 1: Read……

Machine Learning Study Goals – November 2022: Back to projects and exploration

In this monthly post, I tell you what I plan to study or improve on in the area of machine learning (including an update at the end of the month). Last month was a bit … non-optimal. So this month I’m learning from my experience and going back to practical goals despite loving theory. Let’s……

3 Lessons from the paper “Attention Is All You Need” as a Beginner

With the recent surge of news about image, or even art, generating AI, I’m sure I’m not the only one who was interested in how this works under the hood. Most of these results are achieved by so called “transformer” models and even though it seems like they are coming out just now with the……

Kaggle Playground Series, August 2022: What I learned

I participated in this month’s beginner’s challenge on a simulated dataset that Kaggle releases every month. In the August 2022 challenge we are given simulated data from a fictional product test series and given the measured data, the task is to predict whether the product will fail or not in each case. In this post……

How is Data Science different from Machine Learning?

I have been working in a “Data Science” consulting team for 8 months now. Before that I got a Master’s degree in Computer Science with a machine learning specialization. So I could argue that I have seen both sides of the coin here and I have noticed some differences. Disclaimer: You will have trouble finding……
