Last weekend, our Shogun workshop finally took place in Berlin. It was really cool to meet all those guys in person. We have been working together for quite some time now. The core-team an Shogun's supporters are absolutely awesome. It is great to be part of that.
I gave a little talk on two random things you can do with kernels (that are completely unrelated): Gaussian Processes and the kernel MMD. Slides are (download). I also wrote some IPython notebooks for GP-regression (link), GP-probit-classification (link), and two-sample testing with the kernel MMD (link).
One of the results of our discussions was that we will start using those notebook for Shogun's documentation as they allow to combined code, plots, and maths in a web-based viewer.
Finally, here are some pictures of us in the workshop, pretty nerdy :). First, Gunnar and Sören, introducing the workshop, and then the Shogun team:
