Authors

Sebastian Raschka

Sebastian Raschka is an Assistant Professor of Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison focusing on machine learning and deep learning research. Some of his recent research methods have been applied to solving problems in the field of biometrics for imparting privacy to face images. Other research focus areas include the development of methods related to model evaluation in machine learning, deep learning for ordinal targets, and applications of machine learning to computational biology. Among Sebastian’s other works is his book “Python Machine Learning,” which introduced people to the practical and theoretical aspects of machine learning around the globe with translations into German, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Polish, and Italian. In his free time, Sebastian loves to contribute to open source projects, and the methods that he has implemented are now successfully used in machine learning competitions, such as Kaggle.
