Towards Networked and Automated Machine Learning
Many aspects of data-driven science can be sped up tremendously by automating them. OpenML is an online machine learning platform where scientists can automatically log, share and find data sets, code, and experiments, organize them online, and collaborate with researchers all over the world. It helps to automate many tedious aspects of research, is readily integrated into several machine learning tools, and offers easy-to-use APIs. It also enables large-scale and real-time collaboration, allowing researchers to build directly on each other’s latest results, and keep track of the wider impact of their work. Ultimately, this provides a wealth of information to assist people while analyzing data, or automate the process altogether.
Dr. Ir. Joaquin Vanschoren is assistant professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research focusses on the progressive automation of machine learning and networked science. He has founded OpenML.org, a platform for networked machine learning research used by researchers all over the world. He obtained several demonstration and application awards and has been invited speaker at ECDA, StatComp, CLADAG, and AutoML@ICML. He also co-organized machine learning conferences (e.g. ECMLPKDD 2013, LION 2016) and many workshops.
