David Widmann works as PhD student at the IT department at Uppsala
University. His main research interest is uncertainty quantification in
deep learning, a modern area of machine learning. David is from Germany
and obtained a Master’s degree in Mathematics
from TU Munich.

In recent years machine learning has achieved prominent results in numerous areas such as speech recognition, machine translation, and image recognition, often rivalling or even surpassing human performance. As a consequence machine learning has experienced a tremendous rise in popularity but  sometimes feels like magic. In my talk I will provide an introduction to machine learning and show that there is no magic but mainly mathematics behind this technology.
