5 things to know to feed your machine learning model healthy

As always, my examples come from the field of biology, but they easy be extended to other fields. Everything is end up with a vector First, let's remind the usual data format for a machine learning method. Most of the algorithms take vectors as input. A vector represent one "individual" i.e. a sample. Examples of … Continue reading 5 things to know to feed your machine learning model healthy

When machine learning invades biology

After giving an intuition of what machine learning is, it is time to discuss what machine learning can do. Of course Machine learning has plenty of applications in many fields and will have more in the coming years, but let's focus on biology. In this article I will differentiate three levels : the technical level, … Continue reading When machine learning invades biology

What the hell is Machine learning ?

When I talk about my work, many people wonder what machine learning is. Although “a kind of AI” is an acceptable short answer, I think the field deserve a better one. In this post, I will not defined machine learning, there are dictionaries or wikipedia for that, but I'll try to explain what it is … Continue reading What the hell is Machine learning ?
