This was originally posted on the Silicon Valley Data Science blog. At Silicon Valley Data Science, we have a slight obsession with the Caltrain. Our interest stems from the fact that half of our employees rely on the Caltrain to get to work each day. We also want to give back to the community, and […]

Implementing a CNN for Text Classification in Tensorflow

The full code is available on Github. In this post we will implement a model similar to Kim Yoon’s Convolutional Neural Networks for Sentence Classification. The model presented in the paper achieves good classification performance across a range of text classification tasks (like Sentiment Analysis) and has since become a standard baseline for new text […]

RNNs in Tensorflow, a Practical Guide and Undocumented Features

RNNs in Tensorflow, ...

In a previous tutorial series I went over some of the theory behind Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) and the implementation of a simple RNN from scratch. That’s a useful exercise, but in practice we use libraries like Tensorflow with high-level primitives for dealing with RNNs. With that using an RNN should be as easy as […]

By: Alex Perrier – ODSC data science team contributor Every week we bring you a selection of the best data science articles we found floating around Cyberspace. Writing an R package from scratch In the Python vs R debate one argument in favor of R is the amazing diversity and richness of R packages. In […]
