protein patterns, Human Protein Atlas, convolutional neural networks
A solution to the Kaggle competition: Human Protein Atlas Image Classification. Using microscopic images of cells provided by the Human Protein Atlas, convolutional neural networks, CNNs, were used to analyze and predict the location of protein patterns. Challenges included working with an unbalanced dataset, finding a correct learning rate, and choosing a correct architecture to solve the problem. To learn how to overcome these challenges and gain more understanding of the problem, various kernels and discussion posts for the competition, as well as papers on different CNN architectures were used.
