Source: KDnuggets Machine learning is about rapid experimentation and iteration, and without keeping track of your modeling history you won’t be able to learn much. Versioning lets you keep track of all of your models, how well they’ve done, and what hyperparameters you used to get there. This post...

We only understand a sliver of how the human brain works, but we do know that it often learns through trial and error. We’re rewarded when we do good things and punished when we do the wrong ones; that’s how we figure out how to live. Reinforcement learning puts computational power behind that exact...

Image source: Deep Ideas If you remember anything from Calculus (not a trivial feat), it might have something to do with optimization. Finding the best numerical solution to a given problem is an important part of many branches in mathematics, and Machine Learning is no exception. Optimizers, combined...

The loss function is the bread and butter of modern machine learning; it takes your algorithm from theoretical to practical and transforms neural networks from glorified matrix multiplication into deep learning. This post will explain the role of loss functions and how they work, while surveying a few...

Many of the exciting applications in Machine Learning have to do with images, which means they’re likely built using Convolutional Neural Networks (or CNNs). This type of algorithm has been shown to achieve impressive results in many computer vision tasks and is a must-have part of any developer’s...
