D4S Sunday Briefing #28

A weekly newsletter with the latest developments in Data Science and Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Issue #28

Dec 8, 2019

Dear friends,

Welcome to the 28th edition of the Sunday Briefing. This week we split our attention between finance

have exciting posts about NASA’s rules for coding, Information theory and forecasting using “humans in the loop”, and an in-depth look at the statistical mechanics of deep neural networks by one of the leaders in this field.

On the more academic front, we have reviews on Financial series forecasting using deep learning and neural machine translation. Finally, in the video of the week Sara Hooker gives us her perspective on the future of Deep Learning during a keynote on the Future of Finance conference.

On a different note, we are happy to announce the first ever edition of a 2 day training event on Time series modeling with ML and Deep Learning approaches on Mar 15–16, 2020 during the San Jose edition of O’Reilly’s AI/Strata conference.

If you think one of your friends or colleagues would enjoy this newsletter, just go ahead and forward this email to them and help us grow!

Semper discentes,

The D4S team
