Open Access Week is on and this year’s motto is „Open in Action“. Thus we’ll take the chance to feature a really interesting open science project we’ve recently stumbled upon: OpenML. OpenML sets out (and actually already achieved) to make machine learning available to a broader audience (especially scientists) and build a platform to create, share, evaluate and use machine learning algorithms. We took the chance to talk to Heidi Seibold and Joaquin Vanschoren about the project’s history, current state and future plans! Feel invited to give OpenML a chance, test it, or contribute to it. For now, enjoy this episode!
P.S.: we had to partly switch to a backup recording option, hopefully you don’t mind too much.
