Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 19 About the Founder of The Machine Learning Salon’s Website & Kit My name is Jacqueline Isabelle Forien and I am from Tours, France, a small city located in the middle of the Loire Valley. I am married and have four children. After an Engineer's degree in Computer Science at the UTC Engineering school and few years of work experience in that field, I decided to become a Mathematics teacher. I am still teaching but in the meantime became passionate about Artificial Intelligence and more specifically, Machine Learning. In 2013, I decided to start studying again at 53 years old and soon graduated from University College London in M.Sc Machine Learning. Soon after, I decided to create the Machine Learning Salon during my spare time so that I could stay updated on the changes that happen regularly in that field. I would like to express a special gratitude to my director of Machine Learning studies at UCL, Professor Mark Herbster, my tutor, Professor David Barber, my supervisor of Master's project, Professor Nadia Berthouze, as well as all my peers during this amazing year. In addition, I would like to express many thanks to Igor Carron who initiated the smart association of 'Machine Learning' and 'Salon', and gave me the opportunity to organise in London a wonderful event that was the Europe Wide Machine Learning Meetup between Paris, Berlin, Zurich and London with Andrew Ng as a Guest speaker. I hope that this website will help many people learn and get more involved in this passionate field that is Machine Learning!

Topics include: (i) Supervised learning (parametric/non-­‐parametric algorithms, support vector machines, kernels, neural networks). (ii) Unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems, deep learning). (iii) Best practices in machine learning (bias/variance theory; innovation process in machine learning and AI). The course will also draw from numerous case studies and applications, so that you'll also learn how to apply learning algorithms to building smart robots (perception, control), text understanding (web search, anti-­‐spam), computer vision, medical informatics, audio, database mining, and other areas. https://www.coursera.org/course/ml Pratical Machine Learning One of the most common tasks performed by data scientists and data analysts are prediction and machine learning. This course will cover the basic components of building and applying prediction functions with an emphasis on practical applications. The course will provide basic grounding in concepts such as training and tests sets, overfitting, and error rates. The course will also introduce a range of model based and algorithmic machine learning methods including regression, classification trees, Naive Bayes, and random forests. The course will cover the complete process of building prediction functions including data collection, feature creation, algorithms, and evaluation. https://www.coursera.org/course/predmachlearn Machine Learning Washington Course Machine learning algorithms can figure out how to perform important tasks by generalizing from examples. This is often feasible and cost-­‐effective when manual programming is not. Machine learning (also known as data mining, pattern recognition and predictive analytics) is used widely in business, industry, science and government, and there is a great shortage of experts in it. If you pick up a machine learning textbook you may find it forbiddingly mathematical, but in this class you will learn that the key ideas and algorithms are in fact quite intuitive. And powerful! Most of the class will be devoted to supervised learning (in other words, learning in which a teacher provides the learner with the correct answers at training time). This is the most mature and widely used type of machine learning. We will cover the main supervised learning techniques, including decision trees, rules, instances, Bayesian techniques, neural networks, model ensembles, and support vector machines. We will also touch on learning theory with an emphasis on its practical uses. Finally, we will cover the two main classes of unsupervised learning methods: machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… 21 Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! clustering and dimensionality reduction. Throughout the class there will be an emphasis not just on individual algorithms but on ideas that cut across them and tips for making them work. https://www.coursera.org/course/machlearning Core Concepts in Data Analysis (Higher School of Economics) Learn both theory and application for basic methods that have been invented either for developing new concepts – principal components or clusters, or for finding interesting correlations – regression and classification. This is preceded by a thorough analysis of 1D and 2D data This is an unconventional course in modern Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Data Mining. Its contents are heavily influenced by the idea that data analysis should help in enhancing and augmenting knowledge of the domain as represented by the concepts and statements of relation between them. According to this view, two main pathways for data analysis are summarization, for developing and augmenting concepts, and correlation, for enhancing and establishing relations. The term summarization embraces here both simple summaries like totals and means and more complex summaries: the principal components of a set of features and cluster structures in a set of entities. Similarly, correlation covers both bivariate and multivariate relations between input and target features including Bayes classifiers. https://www.coursera.org/course/datan Neural Networks for Machine Learning Neural Networks use learning algorithms that are inspired by our understanding of how the brain learns, but they are evaluated by how well they work for practical applications such as speech recognition, object recognition, image retrieval and the ability to recommend products that a user will like. As computers become more powerful, Neural Networks are gradually taking over from simpler Machine Learning methods. They are already at the heart of a new generation of speech recognition devices and they are beginning to outperform earlier systems for recognizing objects in images. The course will explain the new learning procedures that are responsible for these advances, including effective new proceduresr for learning multiple layers of non-­‐linear features, and give you the skills and understanding required to apply these procedures in many other domains. https://www.coursera.org/course/neuralnets Natural Language Processing Natural language processing (NLP) deals with the application of computational models to text or speech data. Application areas within NLP include automatic (machine) translation between languages; dialogue systems, which allow a human to interact with a machine using natural language; and information extraction, where the goal is to transform unstructured text into structured (database) representations that can be searched and browsed in flexible ways. NLP machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 22 technologies are having a dramatic impact on the way people interact with computers, on the way people interact with each other through the use of language, and on the way people access the vast amount of linguistic data now in electronic form. From a scientific viewpoint, NLP involves fundamental questions of how to structure formal models (for example statistical models) of natural language phenomena, and of how to design algorithms that implement these models. https://www.coursera.org/course/nlangp Probabilistic Graphical Models Uncertainty is unavoidable in real-­‐world applications: we can almost never predict with certainty what will happen in the future, and even in the present and the past, many important aspects of the world are not observed with certainty. Probability theory gives us the basic foundation to model our beliefs about the different possible states of the world, and to update these beliefs as new evidence is obtained. These beliefs can be combined with individual preferences to help guide our actions, and even in selecting which observations to make. While probability theory has existed since the 17th century, our ability to use it effectively on large problems involving many inter-­‐related variables is fairly recent, and is due largely to the development of a framework known as Probabilistic Graphical Models (PGMs). This framework, which spans methods such as Bayesian networks and Markov random fields, uses ideas from discrete data structures in computer science to efficiently encode and manipulate probability distributions over high-­‐dimensional spaces, often involving hundreds or even many thousands of variables. These methods have been used in an enormous range of application domains, which include: web search, medical and fault diagnosis, image understanding, reconstruction of biological networks, speech recognition, natural language processing, decoding of messages sent over a noisy communication channel, robot navigation, and many more. The PGM framework provides an essential tool for anyone who wants to learn how to reason coherently from limited and noisy observations. https://www.coursera.org/course/pgm Stanford Engineering Everywhere SEE programming includes one of Stanford’s most popular engineering sequences: the three-­‐course Introduction to Computer Science taken by the majority of Stanford

It will introduce the basic ideas and techniques underlying the design of intelligent computer systems. A specific emphasis will be on the statistical and decision–theoretic modeling paradigm. By the end of this course, you will have built autonomous agents that efficiently make decisions in stochastic and in adversarial settings. CS188.2x (to follow CS188.1x, precise date to be determined) will cover Reasoning and Learning. With this additional machinery your agents will be able to draw inferences in uncertain environments and optimize actions for arbitrary reward structures. Your machine learning algorithms will classify handwritten digits and photographs. The techniques you learn in CS188x apply to a wide variety of artificial intelligence problems and will serve as the foundation for further study in any application area you choose to pursue. https://www.edx.org/course/uc-­‐berkeleyx/uc-­‐berkeleyx-­‐cs188-­‐1x-­‐artificial-­‐579#.U4CqKl6RPwI Big Data and Social Physics (Ethics) Social physics is a big data science that models how networks of people behave and uses these network models to create actionable intelligence. It is a quantitative science that can accurately predict patterns of human behavior and guide how to influence those patterns to (for instance) increase decision making accuracy or productivity within an organization.

We have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth. The goal is to provide students with a brief introduction to many topics, so that they will have an idea of what’s possible when the time comes later in their career to think about how to use computation to accomplish some goal. That said, it is not a “computation appreciation” course. Students will spend a considerable amount of time writing programs to implement the concepts covered in the course. Topics covered include plotting, stochastic programs, probability and statistics, random walks, Monte Carlo simulations, modeling data, optimization problems, and clustering. https://www.edx.org/course/mitx/mitx-­‐6-­‐00-­‐2x-­‐introduction-­‐computational-­‐2836 MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) OCW makes the materials used in the teaching of MIT's subjects available on the Web. http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm https://www.youtube.com/user/MIT VLAB MIT Entreprise Forum Bay Area, Machine Learning Videos Added the 22-­‐Nov-­‐2014 machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

As we obviously cannot solve every problem in machine learning or statistics, this means that we cannot generically solve every optimization problem (at least not efficiently). Fortunately, many problems of interest in statistics and machine learning can be posed as optimization tasks that have special properties—such as convexity, smoothness, separability, sparsity etc.— permitting standardized, efficient solution techniques. This course is designed to give a graduate-­‐level student a thorough grounding in these properties and their role in optimization, and a broad comprehension of algorithms tailored to exploit such properties. The main focus will be on convex optimization problems, though we will also discuss nonconvex problems at the end. We will visit and revisit important applications in statistics and machine learning. Upon completing the course, students should be able to approach an optimization problem (often derived from a statistics or machine learning context) and: (1) identify key properties such as convexity, smoothness, sparsity, etc., and/or possibly reformulate the problem so that it possesses such desirable properties; (2) select an algorithm for this optimization problem, with an understanding of the ad-­‐ vantages and disadvantages of applying one method over another, given the problem and properties at hand; (3) implement this algorithm or use existing software to efficiently compute the solution. http://www.stat.cmu.edu/~ryantibs/convexopt/#videos Machine Learning, Spring 2011, by Tom Mitchell, CMU Machine Learning is concerned with computer programs that automatically improve their performance through experience (e.g., programs that learn to recognize human faces, recommend music and movies, and drive autonomous robots).

The rapidly developing field of representation learning is concerned with questions surrounding how we can best learn meaningful and useful representations of data. We take a broad view of the field, and include in it topics such as deep learning and feature learning, metric learning, kernel learning, compositional models, non-­‐linear structured prediction, and issues regarding non-­‐
convex optimization. Despite the importance of representation learning to machine learning and to application areas such as vision, speech, audio and NLP, there is currently no common venue for researchers who share a common interest in this topic. The goal of ICLR is to help fill this void. ICLR 2014 will be a 3-­‐day event from April 14th to April 16th 2014, in Banff, Canada. The conference will follow the recently introduced open reviewing and open publishing publication process, which is explained in further detail here: Publication Model.

LXMLS Lab guide (Great Tutorial!) Day 0 In this class we will introduce several fundamental concepts needed further ahead. We start with an introduc-­‐ tion to Python, the programming language we will use in the lab sessions, and to Matplotlib and Numpy, two modules for plotting and scientific computing in Python, respectively. Afterwards, we present several notions on probability theory and linear algebra. Finally, we focus on numerical optimization. The goal of this class is to give you the basic knowledge for you to understand the following lectures. We will not enter in too much detail in any of the topics. Day 1 This day will serve as an introduction to machine learning. We recall some fundamental concepts about deci-­‐ sion theory and classification. We also present some widely used models and algorithms and try to provide the main motivation behind them. There are several textbooks that provide a thorough description of some of the concepts introduced here: for example, Mitchell (1997), Duda et al. (2001), Scho ̈lkopf and Smola (2002), Joachims (2002), Bishop (2006), Manning et al. (2008), to name just a few. The concepts that we introduce in this chapter will be machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 44 revisited in later chapters, where the same algorithms and models will be adapted to structured inputs and outputs. For now, we concern only with multi-­‐class classification (with just a few classes). Day 2 In this class, we relax the assumption that the data points are independently and identically distributed (i.i.d.) by moving to a scenario of structured prediction, where the inputs are assumed to have temporal or spacial dependencies. We start by considering sequential models, which correspond to a chain structure: for instance, the words in a sentence. In this lecture, we will use part-­‐of-­‐speech tagging as our example task. We start by defining the notation for this lecture in Section 2.1. Afterwards, in section 2.2, we focus on the well known Hidden Markov Models and in Section 2.3 we describe how to estimate its parameters from labeled data. In Section 2.4 we explain the inference algorithms (Viterbi and Forward-­‐Backward) for sequence models. These inference algorithms will be fundamental for the rest of this lecture, as well as for the next lecture on discriminative training of sequence models. In Section 2.6 we describe the task of Part-­‐of-­‐Speech tagging, and how the Hidden Markov Models are suitable for this task. Finally, in Section 2.7 we address unsupervised learning of Hidden Markov Models through the Expectation Maximization algorithm. Day 3 In this class, we will continue to focus on sequence classification, but instead of following a generative ap-­‐ proach (like in the previous chapter) we move towards discriminative approaches. Recall that the difference between these approaches is that generative approaches attempt to model the probability distribution of the data, P(X, Y), whereas discriminative ones only model the conditional probability of the sequence, given the observed data, P(Y|X). Day 4 In this lab we will implement some exercises related with parsing. Day 5 In this lab (and tomorrow), we will work with Amazon.com’s Web Services (AWS)1, a cloud based solution to run some simple analyses. Then, in the next lab, we will build on these tools to construct a larger learning system. We will only look at small problems, such that you can run them both locally and on AWS quickly. This way, you can learn how to use them within the limited time of these lab sessions. Unfortunately, this also means that you will not be dealing with truly large-­‐scale problems where AWS is faster than local computations. You should consider these last two days as a proof-­‐of-­‐concept giving you the knowledge necessary to run things on AWS, which you can apply to your own large-­‐scale problems after this summer school. Day 6 In the previous lesson, you learned the fundamentals of MapReduce and applied it to a simple classification problem (language detection, using the Na ̈ıve Bayes classifier). machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

Use the same login information you used yesterday to access your Amazon machine. http://lxmls.it.pt/2014/guide.pdf LXMLS Slides, 2014 During the morning there will be lectures focusing on the main areas of ML and their application to NLP. These areas include but are not restricted to: Classification, Structured Prediction (sequences, trees, graphs), Parsing, Information Retrieval, and their applications to practical language processing on the Web. For each topic introduced in the morning there will be a practical session in the afternoon, where students will have the opportunity to test the concepts in practice. The practical sessions will consist in implementation exercises (using Python, Numpy, and Matplotlib) of the methods learned during the morning, testing them on real examples. A preliminary version of the lab guide is available here. http://lxmls.it.pt/2014/?page_id=5 INTRODUCTORY APPLIED MACHINE LEARNING by Victor Lavrenko and Nigel Goddard, University of Edinburgh, 2011 The goal of this course is to introduce students to basic algorithms for learning from examples, focusing on classification and clustering problems.

The mission of LIINC is to using principles of reverse "neuro"-­‐engineering to characterize the cortical networks underlying perceptual and cognitive processes, such as rapid decision making, in the human brain. Our laboratory pursues both basic and applied neuroscience research projects, with emphasis in the following: ... http://liinc.bme.columbia.edu/mainTemplate.htm?liinc_projects.htm Enabling Brain-­‐Computer Interfaces for Labeling Our Environment by Paul Sadja NYC Machine Learning Meetup 1/15/15 Paul Sadja from Columbia University presenting "Neural Correlates of the "Aha" Moment: Enabling Brain-­‐Computer Interfaces for Labeling Our Environment" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weNqauwatBs The Unreasonable Effectivness Of Deep Learning by Yann LeCun, Sept 2014 http://videolectures.net/sahd2014_lecun_deep_learning/ Machine Learning by Prof. Shai Ben-­‐David, University of Waterloo, Lecture 1-­‐3, Jan 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOcjShZbCFo&spfreload=10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYbt63PPP8o&spfreload=10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEIIkhESDac&spfreload=10 Miscellaneous Introduction To Modern Brain-­‐Computer Interface Design by Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience This is an online course on Brain-­‐Computer Interface (BCI) design with a focus on modern methods. The lectures were first given by Christian Kothe (SCCN/UCSD) in 2012 at University of Osnabrueck within the Cognitive Science curriculum and have now been recorded in the form of an open online course. The course includes basics of EEG, BCI, signal processing, machine learning, and also contains tutorials on using BCILAB and the lab streaming layer software. http://sccn.ucsd.edu/wiki/Introduction_To_Modern_Brain-­‐Computer_Interface_Design Distributed Computing Courses (lectures, exercises with solutions) by ETH Zurich, Group of Prof. Roger Wattenhofer Mission We are interested in both theory and practice of computer science and information technology. In our group we cultivate a large breadth of areas, reflecting our different backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, and electrical engineering. This gives us a unique blend of basic and applied research, proving mathematical theorems on the one hand, and building practical systems on the other. machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 49 We currently study the following topics: Distributed computing (computability, locality, complexity), distributed systems (Bitcoin), wireline networks (software defined networks), wireless networks (media access theory and practice), social networks (influence), algorithms (online algorithms, game theory), learning theory (recommendation theory and practice). We regularly publish in different communities: distributed computing (e.g. PODC, SPAA, DISC), networking (e.g. SIGCOMM, MobiCom, SenSys), theory (e.g. STOC, FOCS, SODA, ICALP), and from time to time at random in areas such as machine learning or human computer interaction. Members of our group have won several best paper awards at top conferences such as PODC, SPAA, DISC, MobiCom, or P2P. Roger Wattenhofer has won the Prize for Innovations in Distributed Computing in 2012, for “extensive contributions to the study of distributed approximation”. Some projects turned into startup companies, e.g. Wuala, StreamForge, BitSplitters. Several projects have been covered by popular media and blogs, e.g. Gizmodo, Lifehacker, New York Times, NZZ, PC World Magazine, Red Herring, or Technology Review. Some of the software developed by our students is very popular: The music application Jukefox and the peer-­‐to-­‐peer client BitThief have together more than 1 million downloads. A branch of the United States FBI has requested to use a ver-­‐ sion of BitThief as a tool to uncover illegal activities. About half of the former PhD students are in academic positions, some others founded startup companies. http://dcg.ethz.ch/courses.html The wonderful and terrifying implications of computers that can learn | Jeremy Howard | TEDxBrussels Published on 6 Dec 2014 This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.

Machine Learning Course by Aude Billard, Exercises & Solutions, EPFL, Switzerland Overview and objective The aim of machine learning is to extract knowledge from data. The algorithm may be informed by incorporating prior knowledge of the task at hand. The amount of information varies from fully supervised to unsupervised or semi-­‐supervised learning. This course will present some of the core advanced methods in the field for structure discovery, classification and non-­‐linear regression. This is an advanced class in Machine Learning; hence, students are expected to have some background in the field. The class will be accompanied by practical session on computer, using the mldemos software (http://mldemos.epfl.ch) that encompasses more than 30 state of the art algorithms. http://lasa.epfl.ch/teaching/lectures/ML_Phd/ T-­‐61.3025 Principles of Pattern Recognition Weekly Exercises with Solutions (in English), Aalto University, Finland, 2015 https://noppa.aalto.fi/noppa/kurssi/t-­‐61.3025/viikkoharjoitukset T-­‐61.3050 Machine Learning: Basic Principles Weekly Exercises with Solutions (in English), Aalto University, Finland, Fall 2014 https://noppa.aalto.fi/noppa/kurssi/t-­‐61.3050/viikkoharjoitukset http://www.aalto.fi/en/ CSE-­‐E5430 Scalable Cloud Computing Weekly Exercises with Solutions (in English), Aalto University, Finland, Fall 2014 https://noppa.aalto.fi/noppa/kurssi/cse-­‐e5430/viikkoharjoitukset Weekly Exercises with Solutions (in English) from Aalto University, Finland TO EXPLORE, not to be missed! https://noppa.aalto.fi/noppa/kurssit/sci/t3060 machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-­‐held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed -­‐ alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure. Studying these changes from a critical point of view and anticipating them is the goal of the SENSEable City Laboratory, a new research initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. http://senseable.mit.edu TEDx San Francisco, Connected Reality Connected Reality is an evening that explored how the exponential technologies of the Internet of Things will give us deep insights that augment our understanding of the world and each other and will propel our ability to build intelligent tools that augment our lives. We'll briefly see the future through the eyes of presenters from varied industries of medicine to manufacturing who will illustrate how they use sensor data to perceive and understand the world differently and adjust their realities based on their new connectivity to their environment. http://tedxsf.org/videos/#tedxsf-­‐connected-­‐reality Emotion&Pain Project One of the main challenges facing healthcare providers in the UK today (and in Europe) is the rising number of people with chronic health problems. Almost 1 in 7 machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… 60 Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! UK citizens experiences chronic pain, some due to chronic diseases such as osteoarthritis, but much of it mechanical low back pain (LBP) with no treatable pathology. 40% of these people experience severe pain and are very restricted by it. The capacity of our current health care system is insufficient to treat all these patients face-­‐to-­‐face. Pain experience is affected by physical, psychological, and social factors and hence it poses a problem to the medical profession. This has prompted the development of a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of chronic LBP, primarily involving psychology and physiotherapy alongside specialist clinicians (see British Pain Society guidelines). These programmes enable patients to become more self-­‐managing through improving their physical and psychological functioning. While short term results are good, maintenance of these gains, and building on them, remains a problem, with psychological factors being one of the primary limiting causes. Rehabilitation-­‐assistive technologies have shown some success in helping recovery in a number of conditions but have yet to have an impact in pain management, mostly because of the complexity of dealing with emotional and motivational aspects of self-­‐directed activity increase. By providing the means to automatically recognise, interpret, and act upon human affective states, recent developments in sensing technology and the field of affective computing offer new avenues for addressing these limitations and alleviating the difficulties patients face in building on treatment gains. Thus we propose the design and development of an intelligent system that will enable ubiquitous monitoring and assessment of patients’ pain-­‐related mood and movements inside (and in the longer term, outside) the clinical environment. Specifically, we aim to (a) develop a set of methods for automatically recognising audiovisual cues related to pain, behavioural patterns typical of low back pain, and affective states influencing pain, and (b) integrate these methods into a system that will provide appropriate feedback and prompts to the patient based on his/her behaviour measured during self-­‐
directed physical therapy sessions. In doing so, we seek to develop a new generation of multimodal patient-­‐centred personal health technology. http://www.emo-­‐pain.ac.uk

The new function, called Skype Translator, translates voice calls between different languages in realtime, turning English to Spanish and Spanish back into English on the fly. Skype plans to incrementally add support for more than 40 languages, promising nothing short of a universal translator for desktops and mobile devices. The product of more than a decade of dedicated research and development by Microsoft Research (Microsoft acquired Skype in 2011), Skype Translator does what several other Silicon Valley icons—not to mention the U.S. Department of Defense—
have not yet been able to do. To do so, Microsoft Research (MSR) had to solve some major machine learning problems while pushing technologies like deep neural networks into new territory. http://www.popsci.com/how-­‐microsofts-­‐machine-­‐learning-­‐breaking-­‐language-­‐

The toolkit is primarily designed to accompany Kevin Murphy's textbook Machine learning: a probabilistic perspective, but can also be used independently of this book. The goal is to provide a unified conceptual and software framework encompassing machine learning, graphical models, and Bayesian statistics (hence the logo). (Some methods from frequentist statistics, such as cross validation, are also supported.) Since December 2011, the toolbox is in maintenance mode, meaning that bugs will be fixed, but no new features will be added (at least not by Kevin or Matt). PMTK supports a large variety of probabilistic models, including linear and logistic regression models (optionally with kernels), SVMs and gaussian processes, directed and undirected graphical models, various kinds of latent variable models (mixtures, PCA, HMMs, etc) , etc. Several kinds of prior are supported, including Gaussian (L2 regularization), Laplace (L1 regularization), Dirichlet, etc. Many algorithms are supported, for both Bayesian inference (including dynamic programming, variational Bayes and MCMC) and MAP/ML estimation (including EM, conjugate and projected gradient methods, etc.) machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

Ultimately, open source machine learning software should be able to compete with existing commercial closed source solutions. To this end, it is not enough to bring existing and freshly developed toolboxes and algorithmic implementations to people's attention. More importantly the MLOSS platform will facilitate collaborations with the goal of creating a set of tools that work with one another. Far from requiring integration into a single package, we believe that this kind of interoperability can also be achieved in a collaborative manner, which is especially suited to open source software development practices. https://mloss.org/software/view/501/ Sourceforge Find, Create, and Publish Open Source Software for free http://sourceforge.net/directory/os:mac/freshness:recently-­‐updated/?q=machine%20learning AForge.NET Framework AForge.NET is a C# framework designed for developers and researchers in the fields of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence -­‐ image processing, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning, robotics, etc. http://www.aforgenet.com cuda-­‐convnet High-­‐performance C++/CUDA implementation of convolutional neural networks This is a fast C++/CUDA implementation of convolutional (or more generally, feed-­‐

negative matrix factorization, and other matrix computations. Sketching is a way to compress matrices that preserves key matrix properties; it can be used to speed up many matrix computations. Sketching takes a given matrix A and produces a sketch matrix B that has fewer rows and/or columns than A. For a good sketch B, if we solve a problem with input B, the solution will also be pretty good for input A. For some problems, sketches can also be used to get faster ways to find high-­‐precision solutions to the original problem. In other cases, sketches can be used to summarize the data by identifying the most important rows or columns. A simple example of sketching is just sampling the rows (and/or columns) of the matrix, where each row (and/or column) is equally likely to be sampled. This uniform sampling is quick and easy, but doesn't always yield good sketches; however, there are sophisticated sampling methods that do yield good sketches. http://xdata-­‐skylark.github.io Mutual Information Text Explorer The Mutual information Text Explorer is a tool that allows interactive exploration of text data and document covariates.

It also exists so that I can keep track of resources that are/were helpful to me and hopefully for you. I aim to cover the full spectrum of data science and to hopefully include topics of data science that aren't either actively covered or easy to find in the open-­‐source world. For instance, I haven't focused on in-­‐depth machine learning theory since that is well covered. If you are looking for ML theory I would look to some of the online courses, books or bootcamps. There is a lot of theory information available online, some is linked lower on this page here, here and other info is available with many purchasable books. Keep in mind that this is a constant work in progress. If you have anything to add, any feedback, or would like to be a contributor -­‐ please reach out. If there are any mistakes or typos, be patient with me, but please let me know. Lastly, I would add that a large portion of data science is exploratory data analysis and properly cleaning your data to implement the tools and theory necessary to solve the problem at hand. For each problem there are many different ways and tools to execute a successful solution -­‐ if one method isn't working re-­‐evaluate, re-­‐
work the problem, try another approach and/or reach out to the community for support.

It is meant to be used in business environments, rather than as a research tool for extensive data exploration. Deeplearning4j is most helpful in solving distinct problems, like identifying faces, voices, spam or e-­‐commerce fraud. Deeplearning4j aims to be cutting-­‐edge plug and play, more convention than configuration. By following its conventions, you get an infinitely scalable deep-­‐
learning architecture. The framework has a domain-­‐specific language (DSL) for neural networks, to turn their multiple knobs. Deeplearning4j includes a distributed deep-­‐learning framework and a normal deep-­‐learning framework; i.e. it runs on a single thread as well. Training takes place in the cluster, which means it can process massive amounts of data. Nets are trained in parallel via iterative reduce. The distributed framework is made for data input and neural net training at scale, and its output should be highly accurate predictive models. By following the links at the bottom of each page, you will learn to set up, and train with sample data, several types of deep-­‐learning networks. These include single-­‐ and multithread networks, Restricted Boltzmann machines, deep-­‐belief networks and Stacked Denoising Autoencoders.

The goals of the project are to enable users to ask a Kubernetes cluster to run a set of containers. The system will automatically pick a worker node to run those containers on. As container based applications and systems get larger, some tools are provided to facilitate sanity. This includes ways for containers to find and communicate with each other and ways to work with and manage sets of containers that do similar work. When looking at the architecture of the system, we'll break it down to services that run on the worker node and services that play a "master" role. https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/kubernetes?utm_source Domino Data Labs Domino is a platform for modern data scientists using Python, R, Matlab, and more.

Today, a myriad data sources, from the Internet to business operations to scientific instruments, produce large and valuable data streams. However, the processing capabilities of single machines have not kept up with the size of data, making it harder and harder to put to use. As a result, a grow-­‐ ing number of organizations—not just web companies, but traditional enterprises and research labs—need to scale out their most important computations to clusters of hundreds of machines. At the same time, the speed and sophistication required of data processing have grown. In addition to simple queries, complex algorithms like machine learning and graph analysis are becoming common in many domains. And in addition to batch processing, streaming analysis of new real-­‐time data sources is required to let organizations take timely action. Future computing platforms will need to not only scale out traditional workloads, but support these new applications as well. This dissertation proposes an architecture for cluster computing systems that can tackle emerging data processing workloads while coping with larger and larger scales. Whereas early cluster computing systems, like MapReduce, handled batch processing, our architecture also enables streaming and interactive queries, while machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 91 keeping the scalability and fault tolerance of previous systems. And whereas most deployed systems only support simple one-­‐pass computations (e.g., aggregation or SQL queries), ours also extends to the multi-­‐pass algorithms required for more complex analytics (e.g., iterative algorithms for machine learning). Finally, unlike the specialized systems proposed for some of these workloads, our architecture allows these computations to be combined, enabling rich new applications that intermix, for example, streaming and batch processing, or SQL and complex analytics. We achieve these results through a simple extension to MapReduce that adds primitives for data sharing, called Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs). We show that this is enough to efficiently capture a wide range of workloads. We implement RDDs in the open source Spark system, which we evaluate using both synthetic benchmarks and real user applications. Spark matches or exceeds the performance of specialized systems in many application domains, while offering stronger fault tolerance guarantees and allowing these workloads to be combined. We explore the generality of RDDs from both a theoretical modeling perspective and a practical perspective to see why this extension can capture a wide range of previously disparate workloads. http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Pubs/TechRpts/2014/EECS-­‐2014-­‐12.pdf Big Data Requires Big Visions For Big Change | Martin Hilbert | TEDxUCL At the University of California, Davis, Martin thinks about the fundamental theories of how digitization affects society. During his 15 years at the United Nations Secretariat, Martin assisted governments to take advantage of the digital revolution. When the ‘big data’ age arrived, his research was the first to quantify the historical growth of how much technologically mediated information there actually is in the world. He is convinced that ‘big data’ is a huge opportunity for making the world a better place. After joining the faculty of the University of California, Davis, he had more time to think more deeply about the theoretical underpinning and fundamental limitations of the ‘big data’ revolution. When TEDxUCL asked him if there is a limit to the power of data, he answered with the fundamental limitation to all empirical science. The fundamental limit of ‘big data’ has to do with social change and how we envision the future. Luckily, the digital age also provides solutions for fine-­‐tuning our future visions. Martin holds doctorates in Economics and Social Sciences, and in Communication, and has provided hands-­‐on technical assistance to Presidents, government experts, legislators, diplomats, NGOs, and companies in over 20 countries.

Its purpose was to support research within the information retrieval community by providing the infrastructure necessary for large-­‐scale evaluation of text retrieval methodologies. In particular, the TREC workshop series has the following goals: • to encourage research in information retrieval based on large test collections; • to increase communication among industry, academia, and government by creating an open forum for the exchange of research ideas; • to speed the transfer of technology from research labs into commercial products by demonstrating substantial improvements in retrieval methodologies on real-­‐world problems; and • to increase the availability of appropriate evaluation techniques for use by industry and academia, including development of new evaluation techniques more applicable to current systems. TREC is overseen by a program committee consisting of representatives from government, industry, and academia. For each TREC, NIST provides a test set of documents and questions. Participants run their own retrieval systems on the data, and return to NIST a list of the retrieved top-­‐ranked documents. NIST pools the individual results, judges the retrieved documents for correctness, and evaluates the results. The TREC cycle ends with a workshop that is a forum for participants to share their experiences. This evaluation effort has grown in both the number of participating systems and the number of tasks each year. Ninety-­‐three groups representing 22 countries participated in TREC 2003. The TREC test collections and evaluation software are available to the retrieval research community at large, so organizations can evaluate their own retrieval systems at any time. TREC has successfully met its dual goals of improving the state-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art in information retrieval and of facilitating technology transfer. Retrieval system effectiveness approximately doubled in the first six years of TREC. TREC has also sponsored the first large-­‐scale evaluations of the retrieval of non-­‐
English (Spanish and Chinese) documents, retrieval of recordings of speech, and retrieval across multiple languages. TREC has also introduced evaluations for open-­‐
domain question answering and content-­‐based retrieval of digital video. The TREC test collections are large enough so that they realistically model operational settings. Most of today's commercial search engines include technology first developed in TREC. http://trec.nist.gov/data.html machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

The archive was created as an ftp archive in 1987 by David Aha and fellow graduate students at UC Irvine. Since that time, it has been widely used by students, educators, and researchers all over the world as a primary source of machine learning data sets. As an indication of the impact of the archive, it has been cited over 1000 times, making it one of the top 100 most cited "papers" in all of computer science. The current version of the web site was designed in 2007 by Arthur Asuncion and David Newman, and this project is in collaboration with Rexa.info at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Funding support from the National Science Foundation is gratefully acknowledged. https://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets.html IMAGENET Added in the kit 30-­‐Oct-­‐2014 ImageNet is an image database organized according to the WordNet hierarchy (currently only the nouns), in which each node of the hierarchy is depicted by hundreds and thousands of images. Currently we have an average of over five hundred images per node. We hope ImageNet will become a useful resource for researchers, educators, students and all of you who share our passion for pictures. Who uses ImageNet? We envision ImageNet as a useful resource to researchers in the academic world, as well as educators around the world. Does ImageNet own the images? Can I download the images? No, ImageNet does not own the copyright of the images. ImageNet only provides thumbnails and URLs of images, in a way similar to what image search engines do. In other words, ImageNet compiles an accurate list of web images for each synset of WordNet. For researchers and educators who wish to use the images for non-­‐
commercial research and/or educational purposes, we can provide access through our site under certain conditions and terms.

The Collection is widely used by the numerical linear algebra community for the development and performance evaluation of sparse matrix algorithms. It allows for robust and repeatable experiments: robust because performance results with artificially-­‐
generated matrices can be misleading, and repeatable because matrices are curated and made publicly available in many formats. Its matrices cover a wide spectrum of domains, include those arising from problems with underlying 2D or 3D geometry (as structural engineering, computational fluid dynamics, model reduction, electromagnetics, semiconductor devices, thermodynamics, materials, acoustics, computer graphics/vision, robotics/kinematics, and other discretizations) and those that typically do not have such geometry (optimization, circuit simulation, economic and financial modeling, theoretical and quantum chemistry, chemical process simulation, mathematics and statistics, power networks, and other networks and graphs). We provide software for accessing and managing the Collection, from MATLAB, Mathematica, Fortran, and C, as well as an online search capability. Graph visualization of the matrices is provided, and a new multilevel coarsening scheme is proposed to facilitate this task. http://www.cise.ufl.edu/research/sparse/matrices/ Visualization & Graphics lab, Dept. of CSA and SERC, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore This is the video channel of the Visualization & Graphics lab (http://vgl.serc.iisc.ernet.in) which is part of the Dept. of CSA and SERC, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

Today, a myriad data sources, from the Internet to business operations to scientific instruments, produce large and valuable data streams. However, the processing capabilities of single machines have not kept up with the size of data, making it harder and harder to put to use. As a result, a grow-­‐ ing number of organizations—not just web companies, but traditional enterprises and research labs—need to scale out their most important computations to clusters of hundreds of machines. At the same time, the speed and sophistication required of data processing have grown. In addition to simple queries, complex algorithms like machine learning and graph analysis are becoming common in many domains. And in addition to batch processing, streaming analysis of new real-­‐time data sources is required to let organizations take timely action. Future computing platforms will need to not only scale out traditional workloads, but support these new applications as well. This dissertation proposes an architecture for cluster computing systems that can tackle emerging data processing workloads while coping with larger and larger scales. Whereas early cluster computing systems, like MapReduce, handled batch processing, our architecture also enables streaming and interactive queries, while keeping the scalability and fault tolerance of previous systems. And whereas most deployed systems only support simple one-­‐pass computations (e.g., aggregation or SQL queries), ours also extends to the multi-­‐pass algorithms required for more complex analytics (e.g., iterative algorithms for machine learning). Finally, unlike the specialized systems proposed for some of these workloads, our architecture allows these computations to be combined, enabling rich new applications that machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 117 intermix, for example, streaming and batch processing, or SQL and complex analytics. We achieve these results through a simple extension to MapReduce that adds primitives for data sharing, called Resilient Distributed Datasets (RDDs). We show that this is enough to efficiently capture a wide range of workloads. We implement RDDs in the open source Spark system, which we evaluate using both synthetic benchmarks and real user applications. Spark matches or exceeds the performance of specialized systems in many application domains, while offering stronger fault tolerance guarantees and allowing these workloads to be combined. We explore the generality of RDDs from both a theoretical modeling perspective and a practical perspective to see why this extension can capture a wide range of previously disparate workloads. http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Pubs/TechRpts/2014/EECS-­‐2014-­‐12.pdf Deep Learning (Artificial Intelligence) , An MIT Press book in preparation, by Yoshua Bengio, Ian Goodfellow and Aaron Courville, 20-­‐Oct-­‐2014 Please help us make this a great book!

It introduces the unique problems arising from social media data and presents fundamental concepts, emerging issues, and effective algorithms for network analysis and data mining. Suitable for use in advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate courses as well as professional short courses, the text contains exercises of different degrees of difficulty that improve understanding and help apply concepts, principles, and methods in various scenarios of social media mining. http://dmml.asu.edu/smm/book/ Slides http://dmml.asu.edu/smm/slides/ Causal Inference by Miguel A. Hernán and James M. Robins, May 14, 2014, Draft Added in the kit 29-­‐oct-­‐2014 The book provides a cohesive presentation of concepts of, and methods for, causal inference. Much of this material is currently scattered across journals in several disciplines or confined to technical articles. We expect that the book will be of interest to anyone interested in causal inference, e.g., epidemiologists, statisticians, psychologists, economists, sociologists, other social scientists… The book is geared towards graduate students and practitioners. We have divided the book in 3 parts of increasing difficulty: causal inference without models, causal inference with models, and causal inference from complex longitudinal data. We will make drafts of selected book sections available on this website. The idea is that interested readers can submit suggestions or criticisms before the book is published.

Chapter 2 briefly reviews supervised learning in general, and pattern classi-­‐ fication in particular. It also provides a formal definition of sequence labelling, and discusses three classes of sequence labelling task that arise under different relationships between the input and label sequences. Chapter 3 provides back-­‐ ground material for feedforward and recurrent neural networks, with emphasis on their application to labelling and classification tasks. It also introduces the sequential Jacobian as a tool for analysing the use of context by RNNs. Chapter 4 describes the LSTM architecture and introduces bidirectional LSTM (BLSTM). Chapter 5 contains an experimental comparison of BLSTM to other neural network architectures applied to framewise phoneme classification. Chapter 6 investigates the use of LSTM in hidden Markov model-­‐neural network hybrids. Chapter 7 introduces connectionist temporal classification, Chapter 8 covers multidimensional networks, and hierarchical subsampling networks are described in Chapter 9. http://www.cs.toronto.edu/%7Egraves/preprint.pdf A course in Machine Learning by Hal Daume, 2012 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Machine learning is the study of algorithms that learn from data and experience. It is applied in a vast variety of application areas, from medicine to advertising, from military to pedestrian. Any area in which you need to make sense of data is a potential consumer of machine learning. CIML is a set of introductory materials that covers most major aspects of modern machine learning (supervised learning, unsupervised learning, large margin methods, probabilistic modeling, learning theory, etc.). It's focus is on broad applications with a rigorous backbone. A subset can be used for an undergraduate course; a graduate course could probably cover the entire material and then some. http://ciml.info Machine Learning in Action, Peter Harrington, 2012 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Chapter 1 and 7 are available for free on the publisher website http://www.manning.com/pharrington/MLiAchapter1sample.pdf machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

Most data mining textbooks focus on providing a theoretical foundation for data mining, and as result, may seem notoriously difficult to understand. Don’t get me wrong, the information in those books is extremely important. However, if you are a programmer interested in learning a bit about data mining you might be interested in a beginner’s hands-­‐on guide as a first step. That’s what this book provides. This guide follows a learn-­‐by-­‐doing approach. Instead of passively reading the book, I encourage you to work through the exercises and experiment with the Python code I provide. I hope you will be actively involved in trying out and programming data mining techniques. The textbook is laid out as a series of small steps that build on each other until, by the time you complete the book, you have laid the foundation for understanding data mining techniques. This book is available for download for free under a Creative Commons license (see link in footer). You are free to share the book, and remix it.

The view we take is that AI is the study of the design of intelligent computational agents. The book is structured as a textbook but it is designed to be accessible to a wide audience. We wrote this book because we are excited about the emergence of AI as an integrated science. As with any science worth its salt, AI has a coherent, formal theory and a rambunctious experimental wing. Here we balance theory and experiment and show how to link them intimately together. We develop the science of AI together with its engineering applications. We believe the adage, "There is nothing so practical as a good theory." The spirit of our approach is captured by the dictum, "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." We must build the science on solid foundations; we present the foundations, but only sketch, and give some examples of, the complexity required to build useful intelligent systems. Although the resulting systems the will be complex, the foundations and the building blocks should be simple. http://artint.info/html/ArtInt.html The Elements of Statistical Learning, T. Hastie, R.

Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 125 During the past decade has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it has come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge of understanding these data has led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are often expressed with different terminology. This book descibes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are given, with a liberal use of color graphics. It should be a valuable resource for statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book's coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervised learning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification trees and boosting-­‐-­‐the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in the original, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression & path algorithms for the lasso, non-­‐negative matrix factorization and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for ``wide'' data (italics p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. http://statweb.stanford.edu/~tibs/ElemStatLearn/ Learning Deep Architecture for AI by Yoshua Bengio, 2009 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Abstract Theoretical results suggest that in order to learn the kind of com- plicated functions that can
represent high-level abstractions (e.g., in vision, language, and other AI-level tasks), one may
need deep architec- tures. Deep architectures are composed of multiple levels of non-linear
operations, such as in neural nets with many hidden layers or in com- plicated propositional
formulae re-using many sub-formulae. Searching the parameter space of deep architectures is a
difficult task, but learning algorithms such as those for Deep Belief Networks have recently been
proposed to tackle this problem with notable success, beating the state- of-the-art in certain areas.
This monograph discusses the motivations and principles regarding learning algorithms for deep
architectures, in particular those exploiting as building blocks unsupervised learning of singlelayer models such as Restricted Boltzmann Machines, used to construct deeper models such as
Deep Belief Networks.

Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 This book is the result of a series of courses we have taught at Stanford University and at the University of Stuttgart, in a range of durations including a single quarter, one semester and two quarters. These courses were aimed at early-­‐stage graduate students in computer science, but we have also had enrollment from upper-­‐class computer science undergraduates, as well as students from law, medical informatics, statistics, linguistics and various en-­‐ gineering disciplines. The key machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… 126 Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! design principle for this book, therefore, was to cover what we believe to be important in a one-­‐term graduate course on information retrieval. An additional principle is to build each chapter around material that we believe can be covered in a single lecture of 75 to 90 minutes. The first eight chapters of the book are devoted to the basics of information retrieval, and in particular the heart of search engines; we consider this material to be core to any course on information retrieval. … Chapters 9–21 build on the foundation of the first eight chapters to cover a variety of more advanced topics. http://nlp.stanford.edu/IR-­‐book/pdf/irbookprint.pdf http://www-­‐nlp.stanford.edu/IR-­‐book/ Kernel Method in Machine Learning by Thomas Hofmann; Bernhard Schölkopf;
Alexander J. Smola, 2008 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 We review machine learning methods employing positive definite kernels. These methods formulate learning and estimation problems in a reproducing kernel Hilbert space (RKHS) of functions defined on the data domain, expanded in terms of a kernel. Working in linear spaces of function has the benefit of facilitating the construction and analysis of learning algorithms while at the same time allowing large classes of functions. The latter include nonlinear functions as well as functions defined on nonvectorial data. We cover a wide range of methods, ranging from binary classifiers to sophisticated methods for estimation with structured data. https://archive.org/details/arxiv-­‐math0701907 Introduction to Machine Learning, Alex Smola, S.V.N. Vishwanathan, 2008 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Over the past two decades Machine Learning has become one of the main-­‐ stays of information technology and with that, a rather central, albeit usually hidden, part of our life. With the ever increasing amounts of data becoming available there is good reason to believe that smart data analysis will become even more pervasive as a necessary ingredient for technological progress. The purpose of this chapter is to provide the reader with an overview over the vast range of applications which have at their heart a machine learning problem and to bring some degree of order to the zoo of problems. After that, we will discuss some basic tools from statistics and probability theory, since they form the language in which many machine learning problems must be phrased to become amenable to solving. Finally, we will outline a set of fairly basic yet effective algorithms to solve an important problem, namely that of classification. More sophisticated tools, a discussion of more general problems and a detailed analysis will follow in later parts of the book. http://alex.smola.org/drafts/thebook.pdf machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

Bishop, 2006 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Pattern recognition has its origins in engineering, whereas machine learning grew out of computer science. However, these activities can be viewed as two facets of the same field, and together they have undergone substantial development over the past ten years. In particular, Bayesian methods have grown from a specialist niche to become mainstream, while graphical models have emerged as a general framework for describing and applying probabilistic models. Also, the practical applicability of Bayesian methods has been greatly enhanced through the development of a range of approximate inference algorithms such as variational Bayes and expectation propa-­‐ gation. Similarly, new models based on kernels have had significant impact on both algorithms and applications. Chapter 8 – Graphical Models Probabilities play a central role in modern pattern recognition. We have seen in Chapter 1 that probability theory can be expressed in terms of two simple equations corresponding to the sum rule and the product rule. All of the probabilistic infer-­‐ ence and learning manipulations discussed in this book, no matter how complex, amount to repeated application of these two equations. We could therefore proceed to formulate and solve complicated probabilistic models purely by algebraic ma-­‐ nipulation. However, we shall find it highly advantageous to augment the analysis using diagrammatic representations of probability distributions, called probabilistic graphical models. These offer several useful properties: 1. They provide a simple way to visualize the structure of a probabilistic model and can be used to design and motivate new models. 2. Insights into the properties of the model, including conditional independence properties, can be obtained by inspection of the graph. 3. Complex computations, required to perform inference and learning in sophis-­‐ ticated models, can be expressed in terms of graphical manipulations, in which underlying mathematical expressions are carried along implicitly. http://research.microsoft.com/en-­‐us/um/people/cmbishop/PRML/pdf/Bishop-­‐PRML-­‐sample.pdf http://research.microsoft.com/en-­‐us/um/people/cmbishop/prml/ Gaussian processes for Machine Learning, C. Rasmussen and C. Williams, 2006 Added in the kit before 24-­‐oct-­‐2014 Gaussian processes (GPs) provide a principled, practical, probabilistic approach to learning in kernel machines. GPs have received increased attention in the machine-­‐
learning community over the past decade, and this book provides a long-­‐needed systematic and unified treatment of theoretical and practical aspects of GPs in machine learning. The treatment is comprehensive and self-­‐contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics.The book deals with the supervised-­‐learning problem for both regression and classification, and includes detailed algorithms. A wide variety of covariance (kernel) functions are presented and their properties discussed. Model selection is discussed both from a Bayesian and a classical perspective. Many connections to other well-­‐known machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… 128 Don’t keep an old version!

vector machines, neural networks, splines, regularization networks, relevance vector machines and others. Theoretical issues including learning curves and the PAC-­‐Bayesian framework are treated, and several approximation methods for learning with large datasets are discussed. The book contains illustrative examples and exercises, and code and datasets are available on the Web.

It expects familiarity with calculus, probability theory, and linear algebra as taught in a first-­‐ or second-­‐ year undergraduate course on mathematics for scientists and engineers. Conventional courses on information theory cover not only the beautiful theoretical
ideas of Shannon, but also practical solutions to communica-­‐ tion problems. This book goes further, bringing in Bayesian data modelling, Monte Carlo methods, variational methods, clustering algorithms, and neural networks. Why unify information theory and machine learning? Because they are two sides of the same coin. In the 1960s, a single field, cybernetics, was populated by information theorists, computer scientists, and neuroscientists, all studying common problems. Information theory and machine learning still belong together. Brains are the ultimate compression and communication systems. And the state-­‐of-­‐
the-­‐art algorithms for both data compression and error-­‐correcting codes use the same tools as machine learning. http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/itprnn/book.html https://archive.org/details/MackayInformationTheoryFreeEbookReleasedByAuthor machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

This book by Rau ́l Rojas is aimed at advanced undergraduates in computer science and mathematics. This is a revised version of his German text which has been quite successful. It is also a valuable self-­‐ instruction source for professionals interested in the relation of neural network ideas to theoretical computer science and articulating disciplines. The book is divided into eighteen chapters, each designed to be taught in about one week. The first eight chapters follow a progression and the later ones can be covered in a variety of orders. The emphasis throughout is on explicating the computational nature of the structures and processes and relating them to other computational formalisms. Proofs are rigorous, but not overly formal, and there is extensive use of geometric intuition and diagrams. Specific applications are discussed, with the emphasis on computational rather than engineering issues. There is a modest number of exercises at the end of most chapters. http://www.inf.fu-­‐berlin.de/inst/ag-­‐ki/rojas_home/documents/1996/NeuralNetworks/neuron.pdf Books -­‐ Spanish Coming soon … Books -­‐ German Coming soon … Books -­‐ Italian Coming soon … Books -­‐ French Coming soon … machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

We aim to make intelligent machines behave as we intend even in the absence of immediate human supervision. Much of our current research deals with reflection, an AI’s ability to reason about its own behavior in a principled rather than ad-­‐hoc way. We focus our research on AI approaches that can be made transparent (e.g. principled decision algorithms, not genetic algorithms), so that humans can understand why the AIs behave as they do. http://intelligence.org/blog/ Kevin Davenport Data Blog Added in the kit 04-­‐Nov-­‐2014 I'm a tech enthusiast interested in automation, machine learning, and conveying complex statistical models through visualization.

Step by step, we'll go about building a solution for the Facial Keypoint Detection Kaggle challenge. The tutorial introduces Lasagne, a new library for building neural networks with Python and Theano. We'll use Lasagne to implement a couple of network architectures, talk about data augmentation, dropout, the importance of momentum, and pre-­‐training. Some of these methods will help us improve our results quite a bit. I'll assume that you already know a fair bit about neural nets. That's because we won't talk about much of the background of how neural nets work; there's a few of good books and videos for that, like the Neural Networks and Deep Learning online book. Alec Radford's talk Deep Learning with Python's Theano library is a great quick introduction.

The new function, called Skype Translator, translates voice calls between different languages in realtime, turning English to Spanish and Spanish back into English on the fly. Skype plans to incrementally add support for more than 40 languages, promising nothing short of a universal translator for desktops and mobile devices. The product of more than a decade of dedicated research and development by Microsoft Research (Microsoft acquired Skype in 2011), Skype Translator does what several other Silicon Valley icons—not to mention the U.S. Department of Defense—
have not yet been able to do. To do so, Microsoft Research (MSR) had to solve some major machine learning problems while pushing technologies like deep neural networks into new territory. http://www.popsci.com/how-­‐microsofts-­‐machine-­‐learning-­‐breaking-­‐language-­‐barrier machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

The AGI Society organizes a yearly conference and occasional summer school. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is an emerging field aiming at the building of “thinking machines”; that is, general-­‐purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind (and perhaps ultimately well beyond human general intelligence). While this was the original goal of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the mainstream of AI research has turned toward domain-­‐dependent and problem-­‐
specific solutions; therefore it has become necessary to use a new name to indicate research that still pursues the “Grand AI Dream”. Similar labels for this kind of research include “Strong AI”, “Human-­‐level AI”, etc. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCwJ8AV1zMM4j9FTicGimqA?spfreload=10 http://www.agi-­‐society.org AUAI, Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence About AUAI The Association for Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence is a non-­‐profit organization focused on organizing the annual Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI) and, more generally, on promoting research in pursuit of advances in knowledge representation, learning and reasoning under uncertainty.

We focus on research and education in all areas of statistical machine learning. Watch an interview with Tom Mitchell, Department Head: http://videolectures.net/mlas06_mitchell_itm/ http://www.ml.cmu.edu Noah's ARK Research Group, Carnegie Mellon University Noah's ARK[1] is Noah Smith's informal research group at the Language Technologies Institute, School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. (The research is formal; the group is informal.) As you may have guessed, our research focuses on problems of ambiguity and uncertainty in natural language processing, including morphology, syntax, semantics, translation, and behavioral/social phenomena observed through language—all viewed through a computational lens. http://www.ark.cs.cmu.edu Harvard University Intelligent Interactive Systems Group Intelligent Interactive Systems are fundamentally hard to design because they require intelligent technology that is well suited for people's abilities, limitations, and preferences; they also require entirely novel interactions that can give the user a predictable and reliable experience despite the fact that the underlying technology is inherently proactive, unpredictable, and occasionally wrong. Thus, design of successful intelligent interactive systems requires intimate knowledge of and ability to innovate in two very disparate areas: human-­‐computer interaction and artificial intelligence or machine learning. Our projects span the full range from formal user studies to statistical machine learning. We have worked on developing new intelligent technologies to enable novel interactions (e.g., SUPPLE system) and on understanding the principles underlying how people interact with intelligent systems (e.g., the project on exploring the design space of adaptive user interfaces). Our Brain-­‐Computer Interface project aims at developing a new set of interactions for efficiently machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version! Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 156 controlling complex applications, and we are also interested in building and studying complete applications. One particular area of inteterest is the ability-­‐based user interfaces -­‐-­‐ an approach for adapting interactions to the individual abilities of people with impairments or of able-­‐bodied people in unusual situations. http://iis.seas.harvard.edu http://iis.seas.harvard.edu/resources/ University of California, Berkeley Statistical Machine Learning Research Statement Statistical machine learning merges statistics with the computational sciences-­‐-­‐-­‐
computer science, systems science and optimization. Much of the agenda in statistical machine learning is driven by applied problems in science and technology, where data streams are increasingly large-­‐scale, dynamical and heterogeneous, and where mathematical and algorithmic creativity are required to bring statistical methodology to bear. Fields such as bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, signal processing, communications, networking, information management, finance, game theory and control theory are all being heavily influenced by developments in statistical machine learning. The field of statistical machine learning also poses some of the most challenging theoretical problems in modern statistics, chief among them being the general problem of understanding the link between inference and computation. Research in statistical machine learning at Berkeley builds on Berkeley's world-­‐class strengths in probability, mathematical statistics, computer science and systems science. Moreover, by its interdisciplinary nature, statistical machine learning helps to forge new links among these fields. An education in statistical machine learning at Berkeley thus involves an immersion in the traditions of statistical science broadly defined, a thoroughgoing involvement in exciting applied problems, and an opportunity to help shape the future of statistics. http://www.stat.berkeley.edu/~statlearning/ UC Berkeley AMPLab, AMP: ALGORITHMS MACHINES PEOPLE People will play a key role in data-­‐intensive applications – not simply as passive consumers of results, but as active providers and gatherers of data, and to solve ML-­‐
hard problems that algorithms on their own cannot solve. With crowdsourcing, people can be viewed as highly valuable but unreliable and unpredictable resources, in terms of both latency and answer quality. They must be incentivized appropriately to provide quality answers despite varying expertise, diligence and even malicious behavior. The AMPLab is addressing these issues in all phases of the analytics lifecycle. https://amplab.cs.berkeley.edu Videos https://www.youtube.com/user/BerkeleyAMPLab/videos?spfreload=10 machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

It is this group that created RoboCup and the celebrated SIFT features. The students in this group have won most of the AAAI Semantic Robot Challenges. The group has four active faculty: David Lowe, Jim Little, Alan Mackworth and Bob Woodham. Empirical Algorithmics: Led by Holger Hoos and Kevin Leyton Brown, this research group studies the empirical behaviour of algorithms and develops automated methods for improving algorithmic performance. Work by the empirical algorithmics group at UBC/CS has lead to substantial improvements in the state of the art in solving a wide range of prominent problems, including SAT, AI Planning and Mixed Integer Programming, and won numerous awards. Game Theory and Decision Theory: With Kevin Leyton Brown in the lead, this group has made significant contributions to algorithmic game theory, multiagent systems and mechanism design.

Acquiring the kind of complex knowledge necessary for AI requires some form of learning, with the ability to discover hidden relationships and statistical structure that may be highly complex, with many interacting factors of variations explaining the observed high-­‐dimensional data that sensors can provide. According to us this is the main challenge for machine learning and AI. Like the brain, deep learning algorithms are based on several levels of representation and processing, creating several levels of levels of abstraction. Compared to learning algorithms based on shallower architectures, deep learners have the potential to efficiently represent highly complex functions and distributions. We explore various learning algorithms for deep learning, based in particular on unsupervised pre-­‐training (e.g., various kinds of Boltzmann machines and auto-­‐encoders). Unsupervised pre-­‐training allows to exploit very large quantities of mostly unlabeled examples (such as documents, images, and videos from the web). The learned representations capture the salient factors of variation (and invariances) implicitly present in the data, and can be exploited in the context of several supervised learning tasks (multi-­‐task learning, self-­‐taught learning, semi-­‐supervised learning). http://lisa.iro.umontreal.ca/index_en.html University of Sherbrooke Intelligence artificielle Trois équipes oeuvrent dans cet axe de recherche; d'autres projets sont conduits par des chercheurs agissant à titre individuel. machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

The Centre will pioneer an emerging field that brings together statistics, the recent extensive advances in theoretically well-­‐founded machine learning, and links with a broad range of application areas drawn from across the college, including neuroscience, astrophysics, biological sciences, complexity science, etc. There is a deliberate intention to maintain and cultivate a plurality of approaches within the centre including Bayesian, frequentist, on-­‐line, statistical, etc. http://www.csml.ucl.ac.uk CASA (Centre for Advanced Spatial Studies) Working Papers http://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/casa/latest/publications/working-­‐papers Example #198 A global inter-­‐country economic model based on linked input-­‐output models We present a new, flexible and extensible alternative to multi-­‐regional input-­‐output (MRIO) for modelling the global economy. The limited coefficient set of MRIO (technical coefficients only) is extended to include two new sets of coefficients, import ratios and import propensities. These new coefficient sets assist in the interaction of the new model with other social science models such as those of trade, migration, international security and development aid. The model uses input-­‐output models as descriptions of the internal workings of countries' economies, and couples these more loosely than in MRIO using trade data for commodities and services from the UN. The model is constructed using a minimal number of assumptions, seeks to be as parsimonious as possible in terms of the number of coefficients, and is based to a great extent on empirical observation. Two new metrics are introduced, measuring sectors' economic significance and economic self-­‐reliance per country. The Chinese vehicles sector is shown to be the world's most significant, and self-­‐reliance is shown to be strongly correlated with population. The new model is shown to be equivalent to an MRIO under an additional assumption, allowing existing analysis techniques to be applied. http://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/casa/publications/working-­‐paper-­‐198 machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

group belong to at least one of the two pillars of Machine Learning:
• Data-level machine learning to support feature extraction from data (“Big Data”)
• Knowledge-level machine learning and knowledge representation to extract
readable and insightful relational knowledge which supports humanunderstandable machine inference
At the data-level, ongoing research focuses on applying a wide variety of featurebased machine learning techniques in key application areas. Notable recent
successes in these areas include the application of machine learning to medical
imaging of the brain and heart (Rueckert), human emotions and social signals
(Pantic, Zafeiriou), robotic vision (Davison), autonomous systems (Deisenroth),
medical applications (Gillies), computational neuroscience and Brain-MachineInterfaces (Faisal).
At the knowledge-level, our key expertise lies in Relational and First-Order Logic
Learning. Past research had major impact in scientific discovery in biological
prediction tasks (Muggleton), security and semi-automated software engineering
(Russo). Moreover, the closely related areas of smart analysis of biological or
economic network topologies (Przulj) and robust systems optimisation (Parpas)
and scalable data analytics (Pietzuch). http://wp.doc.ic.ac.uk/mlg/ The Data Science Institute The Data Science Institute at Imperial College is being established to conduct research on the foundations of data science by developing advanced theory, technology and systems that will contribute to the state-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art in data science and big data, and support data-­‐driven research at Imperial and beyond.

Information networks are large collections of interconnected data and documents like citation networks and blog networks among others. For this, we will define new structured prediction methods for (networks of) texts based on machine learning algorithms in graphs. Such algorithms include node classification, link prediction, clustering and probabilistic modeling of graphs. Envisioned applications include browsing, monitoring and recommender systems, and more broadly information extraction in information networks. Application domains cover social networks for cultural data and e-­‐
commerce, and biomedical informatics. https://team.inria.fr/magnet/ Sierra Team -­‐ Ecole Normale Superieure , CNRS, INRIA SIERRA is based in the Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'École Normale Superiéure (CNRS/ENS/INRIA UMR 8548) and is a joint research team between INRIA Rocquencourt, École Normale Supérieure de Paris and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. We follow four main research directions: Supervised learning: This part of our research focuses on methods where, given a set of examples of input/output pairs, the goal is to predict the output for a new input, with research on kernel methods, calibration methods, structured prediction, and multi-­‐task learning. Unsupervised learning: We focus here on methods where no output is given and the goal is to find structure of certain known types (e.g., discrete or low-­‐
dimensional) in the data, with a focus on matrix factorization, statistical tests, dimension reduction, and semi-­‐supervised learning. Parsimony: The concept of parsimony is central to many areas of science. In the context of statistical machine learning, this takes the form of variable or feature selection. The team focuses primarily on structured sparsity, with theoretical and algorithmic contributions. Optimization: Optimization in all its forms is central to machine learning, as many of its theoretical frameworks are based at least in part on empirical risk minimization. The team focuses primarily on convex and bandit optimization. http://www.di.ens.fr/sierra/ ENS Ecole Normale Superieure The Computer Science Department of ENS (DI ENS) is both a teaching department and a research laboratory affiliated with CNRS and INRIA (UMR 8548).

Our objective is to develop geometric, physical, and statistical models for all components of the image interpretation process, including illumination, materials, objects, scenes, and human activities. These models will be used to tackle fundamental scientific challenges such as three-­‐dimensional (3D) object and scene modeling, analysis, and retrieval; human activity capture and classification; and category-­‐level object and scene recognition. They will also support applications with high scientific, societal, and/or economic impact in domains such as quantitative image analysis in domains such as archaeology and cultural heritage conservation; film post-­‐production and special effects; and video annotation, interpretation, and retrieval.

Machinelearningsalon.org kit is regularly updated! 180 Professor, Carnegie Mellon University Interests My primary research interest covers the following four areas: • Scalability of algorithms. This means pushing algorithms to internet scale, distributing them on many (faulty) machines, showing convergence, and modifying models to fit these requirements. For instance, randomized techniques are quite promising in this context. In other words, I'm interested in big data. • Kernels methods are quite an effective means of making linear methods nonlinear and nonparametric. My research interests include support vector Machines, gaussian processes, and conditional random fields. Kernels are very useful also for the representation of distributions, that is two-­‐sample tests, independence tests and many applications to unsupervised learning. • Statistical modeling, primarily with Bayesian Nonparametrics is a great way of addressing many modeling problems. Quite often, the techniques overlap with kernel methods and scalability in rather delightful ways. Applications, primarily in terms of user modeling, document analysis, temporal models, and modeling data at scale is a great source of inspiration. That is, how can we find principled techniques to solve the problem, what are the underlying concepts, how can we solve things automatically. http://alex.smola.org http://videolectures.net/site/search/?q=smola 2,028 subscribers (screenshot 17-­‐Jan-­‐2015) 122,631 views Joined 30 Dec 2006 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYoS2VT03weLA7uzvL2Vybw?spfreload=10 Princeton University, US Robert Schapire Added in the kit before 24-­‐Oct-­‐2014 Robert Elias Schapire is the David M.

We are particularly interested in predicting specificity in protein interactions and uncovering how molecular interactions and functions vary across context, organisms and individuals. We leverage high-­‐throughput biological datasets in order to develop data-­‐driven algorithms for predicting protein interactions and specificity; for analyzing biological networks in order to uncover cellular organization, functioning, and pathways; for uncovering protein functions via sequences and structures; and for analyzing proteomics and sequencing data. An appreciation of protein structure guides much of our research. http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~mona/ Olga Troyanskaya Added in the kit before 24-­‐Oct-­‐2014 The goal of my research is to bring the capabilities of computer science and statistics to the study of gene function and regulation in the biological networks through integrated analysis of biological data from diverse data sources-­‐-­‐both existing and yet to come (e.g. from diverse gene expression data sets and proteomic studies). I am designing systematic and accurate computational and statistical algorithms for biological signal detection in high-­‐throughput data sets. More specifically, I am interested in developing methods for better gene expression data processing and algorithms for integrated analysis of biological data from multiple genomic data sets and different types of data sources (e.g. genomic sequences, gene expression, and proteomics data). http://reducio.princeton.edu/cm/node/13 UCLA, US Judea Pearl, Cognitive System Laboratory Added in the kit before 24-­‐Oct-­‐2014 Judea Pearl (born 1936) is an Israeli-­‐born American computer scientist and philosopher, best known for championing the probabilistic approach to artificial intelligence and the development of Bayesian networks (see the article on belief propagation). He is also credited for developing a theory of causal and counterfactual inference based on structural models (see article on causality).

My group explores research problems relating to Computer Vision and Computer Graphics. The students and colleagues here have diverse interests, but my focus is on "Smart Capture" for analysis and synthesis applications. To me, smart capture of visual data (usually video) means having or finding satisfying answers to these questions about a system, whether interactive or fully automated: I) Does the system know the intended purpose of the data being captured? II) Can the system assess its own accuracy? III) Does the system compare new inputs to old ones? I love this field because it allows us to apply our expertise to a variety of tough problems, including film and photo special effects (computational photography), action analysis (of people, animals, and cells), and authoring systems (for architecture, animation, presentations) that make the most of user effort. "Motion reveals everything" used to be my main research mantra, but that has now taken hold sufficiently (obviously NOT just through my efforts!) that it no longer needs championing. http://www0.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/g.brostow/#Research Jun Wang Added in the kit before 24-­‐Oct-­‐2014 My research focus is on the areas of information retrieval, large scale data mining, multimedia content analysis, and statistical pattern recognition; current research covers both theoretical and practical aspects: machinelearningsalon kit – 24th Jan 2015 – Test of the links going on… Don’t keep an old version!

My first Computer Science research was on time-­‐series methods for the solution of the inverse problem in Optical Tomography with Simon Arridge at UCL. In Singapore, I worked for several years on augmented reality. This involved developing algorithms for camera pose estimation, and a three-­‐dimensional video-­‐conferencing system using real-­‐time image based rendering. More recently, I have worked on face detection in a novel foveated sensor system. I am interested in face recognition in general and have presented work on how to recognize faces in the presence of large pose and lighting changes.

Machine learning research has been extremely successful in the past two decades and is now applied in many areas of science and technology, some well known examples including web search engines, natural language translation, speech recognition, machine vision, and data-­‐mining. Yet, machines still seem to fall short of even mammal-­‐level intelligence in many respects. One of the remaining frontiers of machine learning is the difficulty of learning the kind of complicated and highly-­‐varying functions that are necessary to perform machine vision or natural language processing tasks at a level comparable to humans (even a 2-­‐year old).
