The Empirical Derivation of the Bayesian Formula
Deep learning has been made practical through modern computing power, but it is not the only technique benefiting from this large increase in power. Bayesian inference is up and coming technique whose recent progress is powered by the increase in computing power. We can explain the... Read more
How to Use Deep Learning to Write Shakespeare
LSTM recurrent neural networks can be trained to generate free text. Let’s see how well AI can imitate the Bard “Many a true word hath been spoken in jest.” ― William Shakespeare, King Lear   “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey’d monster, which... Read more
The Complete Guide to Decision Trees (part 1)
In the beginning, learning Machine Learning (ML) can be intimidating. Terms like “Gradient Descent”, “Latent Dirichlet Allocation” or “Convolutional Layer” can scare lots of people. But there are friendly ways of getting into the discipline, and I think starting with this guide to decision trees is... Read more
5 Roadblocks to Getting an ML System in Production
We typically meet an organization’s data science team after they’ve carried out a successful proof of concept. The algorithm they built or acquired produced results that were promising enough to greenlight development of a production ML system. It’s at this point that the immaturity of ML... Read more
