15:30-16:00 — Panče Panov

Joint work with: Ana Kostovska, Jasmin Bogatinovski, Andrej Treven, Sašo Džeroski and Dragi Kocev

Abstract: The MLC task has increasingly been receiving interest from the machine learning (ML) community, as evidenced by the growing number of papers and methods that appear in the literature. Hence, ensuring proper, correct, robust, and trustworthy benchmarking is of utmost importance for the further development of the field. We believe this can be achieved by adhering to the recently emerged data management standards, such as the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) and TRUST (Transparency, Responsibility, User focus, Sustainability, and Technology) principles. To FAIRify the MLC datasets, we introduce an ontology-based online catalogue of MLC datasets that follow these principles. The catalogue extensively describes many MLC datasets with comprehensible meta-features, MLC-specific semantic descriptions, and different data provenance information. The MLC data catalogue is available at: http://semantichub.ijs.si/MLCdatasets. In addition, we provide an ontology-based system for easy access and querying of performance/benchmark data obtained from a comprehensive MLC benchmark study. The system is available at: http://semantichub.ijs.si/MLCbenchmark..  

16:00-16:30 — Round table updates for all WP7 tasks; the expectation is that each TAILOR partner with funding allocated under WP7 sends at least one representative who can give a brief update. It is understood that there may not be a substantive update on each task at every meeting.

  • Each update should focus on highlighting the following:
  • Recent and ongoing work, potential collaborations
  • Collaboration between different tasks;
  • Collaboration with other work packages;
  • New collaborations (with people with whom that group has never worked with before).
  • Optional: Support your round table update with a one-slide overview highlighting your ongoing and planned work by adding a slide to the google slide deck: [https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1F-6Ctl-yQSsP5f1yYrkJETXD1DbAbvkQMh3xPCARbuk/edit#slide=id.p]. Note: To save time only slides in this deck can be used, you won’t be able to share your own screen!

Social part: GatherTown


  • Optional: Provide an extra slide, poster, or other material to be shown in gather town (submit a PDF by email to a.w.bosman@liacs.leidenuniv.nl if what you want to present something)
  • Suggestions for improving the seminar format
  • Informal chats about possible collaborations
  • Brainstorm/discuss ideas and mechanism for making our WP7 more impactful, more efficient and/or more enjoyable
  • Chat about anything else you feel worthwhile!
