Hey there! I've been a tech blogger and marketer since 2015.) In my blog here, I share insights into the technology world and software development. I generally cover such topics as programming (web and mobile development, the creation of enterprise solutions, technology overviews, etc.), IoT, blockchain, and so on. Will be happy to discuss tech ideas and issues with you!)

What a great application for machine learning! I'd love to learn it myself but don't really know where to start, any tips?

Collapse
jinglescode profile image
Jingles (Hong Jing)

Hey Coner, it really depends on what you're interested in. I think the most common now is image processing, and that's where I started. Wrote an article about image segmentation [towardsdatascience.com/biomedical-...], which is part of the process to detect glaucoma disease.
X-ray and MRI are also pretty popular. There is a survey call "A Survey on Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis" if you are interested to find out about other image processing applications.

Thread Thread

Coner Murphy

Sounds a great place to start to be honest. I've always had an interest in medical field although not being professionally involved in it, is there some projects I could possibly contribute towards while developing my skills?

Also, from the perspective of learning machine learning, what language would be best? I know JS has tensorflow but I hear python is great for this stuff. Any thoughts?

Thread Thread
jinglescode profile image
Jingles (Hong Jing)

There are past competitions on Kaggle such as Diabetic Retinopathy Detection and
APTOS 2019 Blindness Detection, probably many others. Where there are datasets, and codes to learn from others how they did it. That would likely develop machine learning knowledge. Open-source project to contribute, unlikely, not that I know of. Most medical data are not open source.

Python will certainly be the way to go for ML. For me, I use the PyTorch framework. With Python, you get to use the system's resources and GPU. TensorFlow.js is only mainly used for presentation, after training a model (with Python), port the model into a "lite" version, and present model capability in web browser (with TFJS). Although end-to-end training can be done in TFJS, it is very limited to data size and computation. See my end-to-end training article to predict time series with TFJS

Thanks for the overview. As you can expect my knowledge of machine learning at the minute is quite primitive. But, I'll definitely be looking into some of the technologies you mentioned and thr article you linked. Thanks once again and I wish you the best of luck with your work. ๐Ÿ‘

Hi! I'm frequent reader of dev.to blogs and decided to create an official account today!

I'm a self-taught full stack developer, primarily focusing on backend. I'm an experimental learner, meaning that I've touch (or written a program) in a variety of programming languages and tools. Formerly @SheCanTech on Twitter. I previously interned at Microsoft and The Washington Post and am currently a student majoring in CS and minoring in Mathematical Sciences. I hope to post #100DaysofX and how-to blogs on things like Spring Boot, Scala, Tensorflow.js, WebXR, and whatever else I can think or feel like sharing.

I'm also on the job market for a new job and have my first ever on-site Google interview this Friday. Wish me luck and/or send me pointers, please.

Hey Alireza!

Collapse
darksun profile image
Alireza Ayinmehr

Hey Axel,

Actually I thought there should be more opportunities in Europe

Here in Iran, we mostly use Telegram as the messenger, There are a lot of Telegram groups related to the field we work in, I try to answer the questions and participate in the discussions, I try to gain reputation doing this, People won't pay you to answer their questions, and u have no responsibility, But if you do this the right way, people can understand about your knowledge by reading your answers

Community helped me a lot, I answer questions on Telegram groups, Forums, StackOverflow and ...
I learnt a lot from community and by being active on the community I can gain reputation and help people

So in a nutshell, I recommend u working on yourself as your personal brand.

I'm not a native English speaker, Sorry for bad English

Hello everyone!

I have designed and implemented a practical programming language called MANOOL.

Right now I am writing my first white paper or article about the subject, which I am going to cross-post on dev.to as well as on the official Web site (manool.org), and it should be complete shortly.

Looking forward for your comments...

What sets Manool apart from other languages?

rusini profile image
rusini • Edited

Unfortunately, any short answer would leave you with even more questions, and what really matters is, as always, details. That said, on the MANOOL official Web site the shortest description is:

MANOOL is a programming language with the same purpose as Python, Ruby, PHP, Common Lisp, or Scheme but it is designed with one central idea in mind:

  • to maximize the expressive power / implementation complexity ratio.

The author's implementation fits in only 10 KLOC in C++, yet it exhibits competitive run-time performance.
