Day 49 to 50 - Config files

Topics: Using config files

What are config files

As a last topic I would like to take a look at the usage of config files. First of all we have to establish what a config file is. The Wikipedia definition definition is precise and easy to understand: configuration files (or config files) are files used to configure the parameters and initial settings for some computer programs.

Topics: Extending the Magical Universe with classmethods for Charm, Hex, Curse, etc.

Today I added classmethods to the different Spell subclasses. Speficially, I added one classmethod for each spell type: Charm, Transfiguration, Jinx, Hex, Curse, CounterSpell, HealingSpell such that at least one charm, hex, jinx, … exists in our universe. Tomorrow I will write test code for the entire abstract base class Spell.

100 Days of code - Creating my personal Magical Universe

I have decided to take on a new habit using a technique I found on the ‘get discplined’ subreddit. The technique works as follows:

  • Take a piece of paper or card
  • Draw 6 vertical lines intersecting 6 horizontal lines. This creates a 7x7 grid of 49 squares
  • Choose a daily habit you want to work on and write it down on the back of the card
  • Also put down WHY you want to work on the habit
  • Start working on the habit TODAY!
  • Every day, put a big fat red X into the corresponding square

Language Modeling with Recurrent Neural Networks - Using Transfer Learning to Perform Radiological Sentence Completion

Published in , 2018

Motivated by the potential benefits of a system that accelerates the process of writing radiological reports, we present a Recurrent Neural Network Language Model for modeling radiological language. We show that Recurrent Neural Network Language Models can be used to produce convincing radiological reports and investigate how their performance can be improved by using advanced regularization techniques like embedding dropout or weight tying, and advanced initialization techniques like pre-trained word embeddings. Furthermore, we study the use of transfer learning to create topic-specific language models. To test the applicability of our techniques to other domains we perform experiments on a second dataset, consisting of forum posts on motorized vehicles. In addition to our experiments on Recurrent Neural Network Language Models, we train a Continuous Bag-of-Words model on the radiological dataset and analyze the resulting medical word embeddings. We show that the embeddings encode medical relationships, semantic similarities and that certain medical relationships can be represented as linear translations.
