For my master’s thesis I evaluated whether AI and metaheuristic routing algorithms implemented in Software Defined Networks can improve the overall performance of com
We developed SocialVisTUM, a new user-friendly visualization and labeling toolkit which enables users to get a quick and comprehensible visual overview of topics and topic relations for any English text corpus and can be accessed online. Read on for the details and an interactive demo!
Web sources such as social networks, internet forums, and user reviews, provide large amounts of unstructured text data. Due to the steady development of new platform
Bereits im letzten Jahr hat Marisa Schüler:innen von mint:pro zu einem Exkurs zu PlanetAI nach Rostock begleitet. Für die kommenden sechs Monate heißt es erneut: Entwickle eine Idee für ein Startup im Bereich künstliche Intelligenz (KI) – dieses Mal mit inovex als festem Programmpartner.

In this blog post, we will first have a look at 3D deep learning with PointNet. Its creators provide a TensorFlow 1.x implementation of PointNet on Github, but since TensorFlow 2.0 was released in the meantime, we will transform it into an idiomatic TensorFlow 2 implementation in the second part of this post.
The world that we interact with each and every day is three-dimensional, but the majority of deep learning models process visual data as 2D images. However, there are
Machine Learning on the Edge becomes more and more important for Smart Cities. We investigate how Deep Learning models can be optimized and deployed on edge devices for smart parking guidance systems.
This blog post investigates how deep learning models can be optimized and deployed on edge devices for parking guidance systems. I will present two different approach
In this blogpost, I want to present my master's thesis, which focused on transfer learning for text classification using Siamese Networks.
Text classification is a field in natural language processing (NLP), which assigns text to given classes. With applications in sentiment analysis, spam detection or i
Teach your Deep Neural Network to be aware of its epistemic and aleatory uncertainty. Get a quantified confidence measure for your Deep Learning predictions.
Artificial Intelligence—and machine learning in particular—have come a long way since their early beginnings. The widespread availability and affordability of powerfu
Sequential recommender systems are based on sequential user representations for a given user and sequence length. Each sequence consists of several items in temporal order. Sequential recommender systems aim at exploiting the temporal information that is hidden in the sequence of item interactions of the given user.
Since the invention of the internet, the availability and amount of information has increased steadily. Today we are facing problems of information overload and an ov
In this article I describe the steps and approaches to image recognition for receipt digitalization using computer vision. This is the basic functionality behind apps such as Google Lens, Evernote, PaperScan and taggun.io.
“Would you like the receipt?”—It’s hard to say no to that. Not because you actually want it (you may even throw it in the trash before exiting the store), but because
We extend state-of-the-art sequence-to-sequence neural networks for summarization of long text across windows. By learning transitions, we are able to process arbitrarily long texts during inference.
This blog post describes my master thesis "Abstractive Summarization for Long Texts". We’ve extended existing state-of-the-art sequence-to-sequence (Seq2Seq) neural net
The idea behind the model-agnostic technique LIME is to approximate a complex model locally by an interpretable model and to use that simple model to explain a prediction of a particular instance of interest.
This is the second part of our series about Machine Learning interpretability. We want to describe LIME (Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations), a popular t
This blog explains the basic concept of Reinforcement Learning, giving you an understanding of the closed loop system, in which an agent uses actions to change the state of the environment and thus receives rewards, with the goal of maximizing the return.
I would like to start this series about reinforcement learning by giving an overview of what reinforcement learning is, what it is used for and what terminology is ne
Entropy is a significant, widely used and above all successful measure for quantifying eg. inhomogeneity, uncertainty or unpredictability. It is an integral part of the latest machine learning models deployed on real-world data sets. In this article, I want to highlight the simplicity, beauty and meaning of entropy.
If you are dealing with Statistics, Data Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence or even general Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or Physics, you
Despite their outstanding performance on various tasks, machine perception systems are not infallible. We highlight this problem by means of particular adversarial glasses that manage to force face recognition systems to make mistakes und we show how to achieve robustness against such attacks.
Despite the fact that machine perception systems achieve superhuman performance on different perceptual tasks, researchers have recently demonstrated that they are no
Everybody talks about AI and deep learning and everybody uses it, including you! But what exactly is deep learning and what are artificial neural networks? In this article I shine a light on some basic yet crucial concepts in an attempt to lift the veil.
Artificial intelligence or deep learning: Everybody talks about it and everybody uses it, including you! Of course you immediately have the evil terminator in mind wh
