Multiview Learning for Sequence Extraction Tasks


With the increase of electronically available textual information in different views, new needs for Information Access systems are arising. Many new tasks lie between the classic frameworks of Information Retrieval (IR) and Information Extraction (IE). Machine Learning (ML) is playing a central role in the development of these fields but has been used for the most part for the improvement of existing models.

Higgs boson and Machine Learning: a challenge

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Sun, 29/06/2014 - 15:16

About a week ago we opened the Higgs boson machine learning challenge (HiggsML) to promote collaboration between high-energy physicists and computer scientists. For the first time, the ATLAS experiment at CERN made public some of the simulated data used by physicists to optimize the analysis of the Higgs boson. The Challenge is organized by a small group of ATLAS physicists and computer scientists from LAL (Université Paris Sud and CNRS/IN2P3), LRI (Université Paris Sud and CNRS), INRIA, Royal Holloway University of London, and ChaLearn. It is hosted by Kaggle at
