Introduction

What is MachineLabs?

MachineLabs is best described as the CodePen for Machine Learning. We aim to lower the barrier of entry to Machine Learning and embrace knowledge sharing.

Lowering the barrier of entry to Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a field that seems rather exclusive to people with academic background (professors, Phd’s, …). It’s often not trivial to follow even beginner guides since the field comes with a heavy focus on mathematical theories. On top of that, setting things up to just get started is also very challenging, especially if one isn’t a data scientist who is familiar with all required tools.

We try to lower the barrier of entry as well as making the tooling scape more pleasant, so more people are able to start learning in this field, by implementing the following features:

Embracing knowledge sharing

Our main priority is to make the Machine Learning field accessible to everyone. This not only means lowering the barrier, but also making it easy to share and explore experiments. Coming from the web development landscape, tools like JSFiddle, Plunker and CodePen are the status quo. We want to enable the same for the Machine Learning field by providing features like:
