Shifts in marine microbial populations detected using statistical machine learning

Oceanography is currently witnessing a data explosion, with new instruments being deployed that collect high frequency, multi-parameter datasets, both remotely, with satellites, and in situ, with new instruments such as the SeaFlow cytometer. As a result, oceanographers have begun to use large-scale statistical machine learning tools to analyze these substantial datasets, thereby accelerating scientific discovery […]

eScience fellows release new music dataset

By Robin Brooks

Sham Kakade, senior data science fellow, and Zaid Harchaoui, data science fellow, are part of a UW team that has developed MusicNet, a “classical music dataset … which enables machine learning algorithms to learn the features of classical music from scratch.”

According to a UW press release, “MusicNet is the first publicly available large-scale classical music […]
