The convolution theorem (or theorems: it has versions that some people would call distinct species and other would describe as mere subspecies) is another almost obviously almost true result, this time about asymptotic efficiency. It’s an asymptotic version of the Cramér–Rao bound. Suppose (hattheta) is an efficient estimator of... Read more

Logistic regression is one of the most popular supervised classification algorithm. This classification algorithm mostly used for solving binary classification problems. People follow the myth that logistic regression is only useful for the binary classification problems. Which is not true. Logistic regression algorithm can also use to solve the multi-classification problems. So in... Read more

Facebook’s prophet forecasting tool illustrates the distinction between a traditional statistical approach compared to the newer machine learning/data science paradigm. This distinction is cultural: it seems that the motivation behind prophet was to quickly make accurate forecasts (predictions), instead of getting bogged down in building models satisfying certain theoretical properties, which may or...

The TryoLabs R&D department is in the process of releasing a very interesting AI open source toolkit oriented towards image processing, utilizing state of the art Deep Learning technologies and build upon TensorFlow and Sonnet. Come see Javier Rey, Research Engineer and Alan Descoins, CTO from TryoLabs Speak at ODSC... Read more

This is the 2nd installment of a new series called Deep Learning Research Review. Every couple weeks or so, I’ll be summarizing and explaining research papers in specific subfields of deep learning. This week focuses on Reinforcement Learning. Last time was Generative Adversarial Networks ICYMI Introduction to Reinforcement Learning... Read more

Training a Computer to Recognize your Handwriting Take a look at the picture below above and try to identify what it is. One should be able to tell that it is a giraffe, despite it being strangely fat. We recognize images and objects instantly, even if these images are... Read more

If you have ever competed in a Kaggle competition, you are probably familiar with the use of combining different predictive models for improved accuracy which will creep your score up in the leader board. While it is widely used, there are only a few resources that I am aware of... Read more

Abstract: Visualizations are the most important way we can intuitively make sense of our data. And the best way to dig deeper into our data is to make those visualizations interactive. Everyone from the New York Times to Google is using interactive visualizations to tell stories and analyze data.... Read more
