Mathematics for Machine Learning

Few books that I read give me the feeling that they are written for me, but the book Mathematics for Machine Learning does. The book’s authors start from the basics and present advanced mathematical concepts in an understandable way. If you ever want to get “under the hood” of machine learning, I suggest you start here.

vBCI – reflections

I visited my first conference this spring. I presented a poster (abstract and video) for an adaptive approach to the calibration of BCI systems. I was very nervous before it started, but it was great – so much inspiration and new ideas. Some thoughts that I bring to the next conference I visit: Don’t be afraid toContinue reading “vBCI – reflections”

Summer BCI project

So far during the summer, a colleague (Martin Gemborn Nilsson) and I have been working on setting up a real-time BCI system. We had our struggles, but in the end, we managed. We used Timeflux and Psychopy. The BCI system detects the user’s workload (“how hard is the user thinking”). To calibrate, the user does an n-back experiment where theContinue reading “Summer BCI project”

First, the students nominate teachers and teaching assistants they like, and then the student council selects the best teacher and teaching assistant based on some criteria. This year it was me. Out of all the teachingContinue reading “Pedagogical Prize!”

Reflections on Webinars

It is always hard to know what good teaching is. I learned some tools for analyzing teaching in the course Teaching for Higher Education that I took. One assignment was to reflect upon our teaching, and I wrote about my webinars (see attached document below). One of the course teachers, Torgny Roxå, asked if heContinue reading “Reflections on Webinars”

New round of teaching

A new course that I teach started a few weeks ago. I will hold webinars like I have done before. I know that students appreciate them, but it is always a bit nervous the first time. I did not have to worry, though. The students came to the webinar and said that it was great! It makes meContinue reading “New round of teaching”
