The topic of machine learning has been becoming ever more popular in the last years. This is the ability to use neural networks that allow our software to “learn” by itself and automatically perform tasks for us, like a human would.

Since I am primarily a JavaScript developer I decided to use the popular JavaScript library for creating neural networks called Brain.JS. The problem I wanted to solve was to automatically classify different types of events (as in Birthdays, Weddings, Parties, etc.) into categories based on their title.

If you would like to read more on how I did this and the results encountered, read on here: https://tech.kartenmacherei.de/classifying-events-using-a-neural-network-488acb50de87
