Episode 8: Black… boxes? Noticia

#podcast #T1E8 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 as a cat, or […]

Episode 7: Connected Health Noticia

#podcast #T1E7 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 to control spaces to […]

Episode 6: Regression and complexity Noticia

#podcast #T1E6 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 networks, which are sometimes […]

Episode 5: Fake News Noticia

#podcast #T1E5 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. In this episode we […]

Episode 4: A very “cute” episode Noticia

#podcast #T1E4 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 bioinformatics is able to […]

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

#podcast #T1E3 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 no person following you […]

Episode 2: Your face sounds familiar! Noticia

#podcast #T1E2 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 […]

Episode 0: Hello! Are you there? Noticia

#podcast #T1E0 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. You’ll look at them […]

Episode 1: Women in IT Noticia

#podcast #T1E1 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 SDG 5 Gender Equality.
