Event Details

Abstract: The recent emergence of new methods for data analysis with impressive results raises the interest of the scientific community as well as the IT industry. Potential applications are numerous. Thanks to the exponential increase of computer power and storage capabilities, new techniques in machine learning are now surpassing previous state-of-the-art algorithms in specific tasks, such as image classification or speech recognition. We will describe the general idea behind machine learning, and show some examples with neural networks. We will then see for which tasks it is appropriate to use this kind of tools. The requirements, limitations and potential misuses will also be highlighted. Some examples of applications will be presented to illustrate how it can be applied in various fields of science.
