Welcome back to the newscast! This week’s articles show us how powerful data science and machine learning can be when applied what some might consider niche problems. For example, we cite one article wherein researchers are able to identify a person’s identity from how they walk. Nothing else. Another article describes the significant improvement researchers have made in identifying dangerous skin lesions; improvements that have started putting machines predictive powers ahead of many professionals.
On this episode, we note that we appreciate any and all feedback. Now is the time to begin another large data science project, so if you have an itch you’ve been wanting to scratch send it over to firstname.lastname@example.org
On with the show.
