Rob Nowak and the beer mapper app he developed are highlighted in a recent Capital Times front page feature.
Discovery Fellows Rebecca Willett and Rob Nowak are creating algorithms to make sense of big data and help machines learn. Full story at wid.wisc.edu.
“The computer models Nowak and his team are developing are called adaptive crowdsourcing algorithms. They attempt to weed out the weakest captions as quickly as possible to get more people to vote on the potential winners.”
The New Yorker is using a machine learning system developed by WID Optimization researchers to sort through captions for their weekly cartoon caption contest. See full story on wid.wisc.edu.
WID researchers develop algorithms for many applications and industries, but one side project boasts a more playful goal: Mapping brew preferences.
