This is more or less a continuation of the last post where I described how to use a free Tesla K80 GPU in the cloud. I pointed out some problems I had which appeared during my time I did a project in university.

After searching for a couple of days I was able to find a GTX 1060 6GB for a bit mor...

]]>There is one problem with machine learning. We don't all have a good GPU or none at all. As a student it is quite common to just have a laptop which normally doesn't really have a GPU and of course also can't be upgraded besides getting an external GPU...

As mentioned in a previous article Google...

]]>This post is again about machine learning and not about optimization but I would like to mention some things beforehand. After my last blog article I started my master's degree in Scientifc Computing at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. During this semester I was also given the opportunity to g...

]]>It's a long dream of mine to build something like a chess engine because I love to play chess. Well there are chess engines all over the place but it's something different when you build it by your own, right? Okay chess is a quite complicated game. First it isn't totally trivial to teach the comput...

]]>I'm a Kaggler as some of you may know. That means I'm enjoying to tackle some of these problems: Kaggle Competions

Well I'm not good at ML and just try to get my hands "dirty" on these problems as I find them interesting. Every December there is a fun optimization challenge which I thought might...

]]>In the beginning of October I started as an intern at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and just finished. I worked on a mixed integer non-linear problem solver using Branch and Bound which I explained really short in the last article.

This is a more advanced article about Branch and B...

]]>Sometimes you're working on a project for too long and just need a funny little break. In the last article I mentioned numerical error rounding problems. I tried to fix them using various methods. Probably the best for it is the revised simplex method. There you're working with the initial tableau...

]]>This is by far the longest series of blog articles about one topic. It's interesting to write while thinking, learning and programming just one step before I write it down for you here. I think there isn't enough easy to read information on the internet about the Simplex method.

What can I do with...

]]>In the last couple of weeks we learned a lot about the Simplex algorithm. I hope you enjoyed this series so far. Leave some comments if you're interested in some special articles.

I have at least one more article in my mind about this topic. Now let's dive into this short article. In the last art...
