Video Highlights: Machine Learning for Seeing and Hearing More

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With COVID-19 keeping everyone indoors, this is the perfect opportunity to brush up your data science skills. Data science is a field that is booming and is playing a huge role in society. Instead of just reading a book, in this regular feature column, I will provide some great video learning resources. You can follow these YouTubers and gain insights and advice from their years of experience in the field. Plus you can learn how to code by following through their tutorials and pick up a new skill. So, fire up YouTube below and start learning!

The video offered below is courtesy of the Topical Group on Data Science of the American Physical Society (APS), the premier professional organization for physicists. Modern machine learning has had some of its greatest successes in perceptual problems like image and sound understanding. Extracting relevant information from such high dimensional input is frequently the challenge in scientific data understanding as well. The presentation surveys some exciting results from the Google Accelerated Science team in the areas of cellular imaging for biomedical research, extracting surprising results from human clinical imaging, and disease staging from auditory signals. Collectively these show the promise of further machine assistance in making sense of scientific data, with a great deal of exciting work still to come.
