Teaching Expectations: Applying Machine-Learning Frameworks vs. Theoretical Knowledge vs Social Impact … [What Machine-Learning Students Think/Like/Know/Are …]

Students apparently had a strong focus on the application of machine learning. Students could each distribute 100 points to the different categories, and most students (24% of the points) wanted to learn about machine learning frameworks like scikit-learn, or Tensorflow. However, also a deep understanding of algorithms was demanded (19%). Read more…

Virtual Citation Proximity (VCP): Calculating Co-Citation-Proximity-Based Document Relatedness for Uncited Documents with Machine Learning (preprint)

We published a proposal on ResearchGate (DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.18759.39842) for a novel approach to the calculate relatedness of research articles and other document types. The relatedness of research articles, patents, legal documents, web pages, and other documents is often calculated with citation or hyperlink based approaches such as citation proximity analysis (CPA).

Knowledge in Programming Languages: Python vs. R vs. Matlab vs. JAVA vs. C/++/# … [What Machine-Learning Students Think/Like/Know/Are …]

According to the students´ self-assessment, they had – on average – average knowledge of JAVA (3.2 out of 5 points). However, there was quite a bit of variance. Many students had very little knowledge of JAVA, while others had excellent knowledge. The knowledge of C/C++/C# was similar to JAVA (3.1 on Read more…

General Computer Science Knowledge: Machine Learning vs. Databases vs. Writing vs. Research [What Machine-Learning Students Think/Like/Know/Are …]

On average, the machine-learning students had average knowledge in databases and general writing (around 3 out of 5 points), below-average knowledge in writing research papers (1.9 out of 5 points), and little knowledge in machine learning (1.5 out of 5). The little knowledge about machine learning is not surprising though, Read more…
