News question: Know your machine learning basics?

Quiz time: This week we’re spotlighting news about machine learning models for heart failure.

But first, join Fermilab News at Work in congratulating Adam Wixson for being the winner in last week’s quiz. Two technologies ANNIE physicists designed and deployed are large-area picosecond photodetectors and gadolinium-enhanced water circulation systems.

Now, show off your knowledge of the news coming out of Fermilab in this week’s quiz. A winner will be randomly selected from all lab employees and users who submit the correct answer to today’s question by noon CT today, Dec. 5.

This week’s question: What is over-training with respect to a machine learning algorithm? (Hint: See “After a transplant, a physicist takes on heart failure.“)

Good luck! We will announce the winner and answer next week.

Past winners are welcome to participate in the quiz each week. However, only one win per person will be recognized in any 30-day period. The winner is recognized in the following week’s quiz and rewarded with a small token.
