Episode 13: Convolutional neural networks Noticia

#podcast T2E5 Tuesday, November 30, 2021 Continuing our series on neural networks, this time it is the turn of convolutional neural networks. Responsible for the great popularity of deep learning in recent years, convolutional networks have drastically changed how we design systems for images. In this episode we talk about convolutions, primary classes and COVID […]

Episode 12: Federated Learning Noticia

#podcast #T2E4 Tuesday, November 16, 2021 Data privacy is one of the most important challenges facing artificial intelligence. To build models, it is often necessary to have access to all the data, and in the case of particularly sensitive data, it involves numerous ethical issues. Federated learning was born to offer a viable alternative: building […]

SintonIA 11: The perceptron Noticia

#podcast #T2E3 Tuesday, November 2, 2021 The first neural networks emerged in the 50’s. At first they consisted of very few neurons, and long training processes, but they already gave very relevant results in very varied fields such as astronomy or chemistry. Today we talk about the percpetron, the multilayer perceptron, and its applications in […]

Episode 10: Data AstroScience Noticia

#podcast #T2E2 Tuesday, October 19, 2021 The study of data is fundamental to any science. Statistics and processing algorithms play a fundamental role for fields like Astronomy and Astrophysics, where observations are noisy. But at the same time, they allow us to calculate orbits to detect planets light years away from our planet. We will […]

Episode 9: The neuron Noticia

#podcast #T2E9 Tuesday, October 5, 2021 Already at the dawn of artificial intelligence, scientists looked to nature. And specifically, the human brain, the paradigm of “natural” intelligence. So the logical thing to do was to be inspired, and create analogues of neurons and their connections. In this way, back in the 1950s, the foundations of […]

Episode 8: Black… boxes? Noticia

#podcast #T1E8 Tuesday, June 22, 2021 In this episode we will talk about the obscure science of “Interpretability” and “explainability“, particularly in artificial neural networks. We will try to unravel several mysteries together with an all-star cast. We will try to explain why neural networks, usually considered as black boxes, decide to classify that image […]

Episode 7: Connected Health Noticia

#podcast #T1E7 Tuesday, June 8, 2021 The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new paradigm in which different devices interact with each other without human intervention. This leads to self-organizing networks where there are devices in charge of measuring the environment, the sensors, and others in charge of acting on it, the actuators, which allow […]

Episode 6: Regression and complexity Noticia

#podcast #T1E6 Tuesday, May 25, 2021 In this chapter we introduce one of the basic problems that Artificial Intelligence tools try to solve: regression. Regression models try to predict a certain variable using other variables as input, so that the resulting model reveals the relationship between them. Deep Learning deals with these problems using neural […]

Episode 5: Fake News Noticia

#podcast #T1E5 Tuesday, May 11, 2021 There’s a lot of talk lately about fake news. Fake news, also known as hoaxes, is one of the biggest problems facing the information society. The ability to spread and the reach they have has multiplied the potential to misinform, especially if they are specifically designed to do so. […]

Episode 4: A very “cute” episode Noticia

#podcast #T1E4 Tuesday, April 27, 2021 The application of data science and artificial intelligence to other fields is generating scientific breakthroughs never seen before. And perhaps one of the most striking cases is that of bioinformatics. Bioinformatics applies statistical and computational techniques to analyze biological data, such as DNA. In this episode we see how […]

Episode 2: Your face sounds familiar! Noticia

In this episode we talk about Generative Neural Networks. For those who don’t know very well what this is about, Neural Networks are a kind of program that is able to learn to perform tasks automatically, just by seeing thousands of examples. In other words, we “train” them, exposing them to example after example after […]

Episode 1: Women in IT Noticia

#podcast #T1E1 Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 In this episode we discuss controversial topics, such as the recent publication by leading researchers at the Andalusian Institute of Data Science and Computational Intelligence (DaSCI) of a book on the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Sustainable Development Goals proposed by the UN, and particularly, how they affect […]

Episode 3: They listen to us, but do they understand us? Noticia

#podcast #T1E3 Tuesday, April 13, 2021 Maybe the other day you were talking to a friend about pharmacies, and from that moment on you only get ads for pregnancy tests. Or you received a confirmation of your sushi order by email, and now your facebook is full of take-out food ads. Don’t worry, there is […]

Episode 0: Hello! Are you there? Noticia

#podcast #T1E0 Monday, March 15th, 2021 Imagine for a moment that you wake up in the morning. Maybe your smart wristband decided it was the right time by analyzing your biomedical signals. Or maybe it’s your lifelong alarm clock. You wake up and look at the weather forecast on your phone. You have 20 notifications. […]

SintonIA, a podcast for the Andalusian Research Institute in Data Science and Computational Intelligence (DaSCI) Noticia

The podcast sheds light into the technologies used in the processing and analysis of information. Hosted by Rocío Romero and Francisco Jesús Martínez, both researchers at the DaSCI institute, the podcast deals with the latest advances in these technologies and their future prospects in simple language and for all audiences. The podcast is a biweekly […]
