Hi, my name is Florian. I am a Zurich-based Consultant for Machine Learning at the Swiss IT consulting firm ipt. I created this blog with two goals in mind: First, I want to deepen my knowledge of Machine Learning by writing about use cases and technical implementation. Secondly, I want to exchange thoughts and experiences with a wider audience. Finally, I see the blog as an opportunity to address the common gap between application and implementation of machine learning.
Many companies today have excellent data scientists with expertise in machine learning. However, this knowledge is often separated from the application knowledge of individual persons or departments. For a successful implementation of machine learning projects it is important to combine knowledge, application and implementation, but this is often not possible. Identifying and implementing machine learning use cases is therefore still a big challenge for many companies.
With this blog I address this common gap between machine learning expertise and application knowledge by covering the implementation part of machine learning but also by providing use case specific information about the application of machine learning. If you are interested in this topic, you have come to the right place. Enjoy reading!
