This year I am participating at Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) that is held in Tübingen, Germany. The Summer School offers an opportunity to learn about fundamental and advanced aspects of machine learning, data analysis and inference, from...

This work was recognized as first prize winner for excellent research at ISMB/ECCB CAMDA 2013 Conference. I am giving a talk at CAMDA 2013 Conference, which runs as a satellite meeting of ISMB/ECCB 2013 Conference. CAMDA focuses on challenges in the...

I have spent some time recently studying matrix functions, both from theoretical and computational perspective. There is a nice book by Nick J. Higham on functions of matrices, which I highly recommend to interested reader and which provides a...

In May I participated at the first BioDay meeting organized by Hekovnik in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The aim of the BioDay events is the exchange of ideas, knowledge and fostering collaboration and networking between life scientists, computer scientists,...

In first week of December U of Ljubljana celebrates traditional "Week of University" (Why?) during which numerous invited lectures, presentations and award ceremonies are organized. This year, I was awarded the faculty award for best students and...

Recent days at Department of Computing, Imperial College London, were pleasant (though intense) and our efforts in data fusion produced some very good results. Below are images taken at Imperial and nearby Chrome Web Lab, located in Science Museum....

I have just arrived to London, United Kingdom, where I will stay until the end of November this year. I will be working at Imperial College London, Department of Computing, Computational Network Biology Research Group led by Prof. Dr. Natasa Przulj. ...

Yesterday I defended my undergraduate Thesis entitled A Matrix Factorization Approach for Inference of Prediction Models from Heterogeneous Data Sources (slo: Pristop matrične faktorizacije za gradnjo napovednih modelov iz heterogenih podatkovnih v...

In November 2011, a show called Ugriznimo znanost (Bite the Science) has been shot at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science by the national public broadcasting organization (RTVSLO). Bite the Science is a weekly series on the educational...

In this short post I would like to update you on some recent changes in the MF - Matrix Factorization Techniques for Data Mining Library. Recently, the library MF - Matrix Factorization Techniques for Data Mining has been moved and renamed. It is...
