Teaching in Higher Education

During the last two weeks, I have taken an introductory course in Teaching in Higher Education, and it has been so inspiring!  The course has taught me a new way of viewing teaching and, most importantly, given me tools to reflect upon and analyze my teaching strategies. I have already put my new knowledge into practiceContinue reading “Teaching in Higher Education”

Enough is Enough!

Lately, I have been working intensively on a project in the course WASP – Autonomous systems 2. The project’s purpose was to learn about conversational systems and create one using the Furhat system.  Our group decided to create a movie recommender system called Mr. Rotten. I got the role of dialogue designer. Others were responsible for creatingContinue reading “Enough is Enough!”

Chapter Summary

Last week I summarized chapter 14 (Deep Computer Vision Using Convolutional Neural Networks) of the book “Hands-on Machine learning” by Aurélien Géron for a course I’m taking. The course is based on the book, and during the course, I have evolved from knowing very little about Machine learning to feeling quite confident about it. I recommend this book ifContinue reading “Chapter Summary”

So many feelings

Being a Ph.D. student is sometimes like riding a rollercoaster of emotions. Some days I love it, but some days I only feel anxiety. Today I have felt both. Performance anxiety The most common negative emotion that I have as a Ph.D. student is performance anxiety. I feel that I don’t know enough, I don’tContinue reading “So many feelings”

Ethics

During the last week, I have talked a lot about ethics in connection to Brain-Computer Interfaces. I can’t deny that it sometimes feels a bit like science fiction when we consider a future where everyone uses BCI systems in their everyday life as seamlessly as we use cellphones today. But it is nevertheless a relevantContinue reading “Ethics”

Hands on Machine Learning – Book recomendation

This summer, I finished reading the book Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn, Keras, and TensorFlow (2nd ed.) by Aurélien Géron. I had no previous experience with Machine learning, but I feel confident about using it after reading this book. It includes both overview/intuition and in-depth explanations about Machine Learning algorithms and how to use them.Continue reading “Hands on Machine Learning – Book recomendation”
