Sliding SIR Model for Rt Estimation during COVID Pandemic

One of the main characteristics of an epidemic is the effective reproduction number (Rt), which indicates the number of people each infected individual will further infect at any given time. Being able to estimate Rt is an important task, because this number defines whether the epidemic is expected to grow (Rt>1), or will start declining (Rt<1). In this post, I suggest sliding SIR method of estimation of Rt based on fitting SIR epidemic model to the infections data in different countries. Read More ›

How to Learn Data Science without Coding

Data Science is one of the most demanding and most popular areas of computer science. One might assume that a data scientist need to know Python and programming in general to be successful. While this might be true to a certain extent, in this post we discuss whether Data Science is possible without programming, and how to start learning if you are not a programmer. TL;DR: Microsoft and Udacity just announced a collaboration that will help you with that! Read More ›

DeepPavlov: "Keras" для обработки естественного языка помогает отвечать на вопросы про COVID-2019

В такой области глубокого обучения, как обработка изображений, библиотека Keras играет ключевую роль, радикально упрощая обучение transfer learning и использование предварительно обученных моделей. В области обработки естественного языка (NLP) для решения достаточно сложных задач, таких как ответы на вопросы или классификация намерений, приходится комбинировать серию моделей. В этой статье мы расскажем, как библиотека [DeepPavlov]( упрощает построение цепочек моделей для NLP. На основе [DeepPavlov]( и с помощью Azure ML мы построим вопросно-ответную нейросеть, обученную на наборе данных COVID-19. Read More ›

DeepPavlov: "Keras" for Natural Language Processing answers COVID Questions

In the field of image-related deep learning, Keras library plays an important role, radically simplifying such tasks as transfer learning or using pre-trained models. If you switch to the area of NLP, to perform relatively complex task such as question answering or intent classification, you would need to put several models at work together. In this post, I describe DeepPavlov library that democratizes NLP, and how to use it with Azure ML to train question answering network on COVID dataset. Read More ›
