In our everyday lives, we all process and recognize hundreds of different objects, and although we may not think about it, developing this ability is actually an intricate learning process. Much like people, machines can be taught object recognition by mimicking the learning process of the human brain. In this piece, Master’s student Ikrame Housni explains the basics of Deep Learning and how it can be useful for the diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases.
In honour of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which takes place each year in February, we would like to give a shout out to all the wonderful women of QBIN. This short piece by Giulia Baracchini brings a personal perspective on how we can support each other towards a more equitable academia.
