Computing has the power to do some of the things that the human brain can do, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence. One of those advances is text processing, which also relates to natural language processing. This article is a deep dive into what text processing is and how it can generate value... read more

Source: Timo Elliott Asking your Data Scientists to deploy their Machine Learning models at scale is like having your graphic designers decide which sorting algorithm to use; it’s not a good skill fit. The fact of the matter is that in 2018, the standard Data Science curriculum doesn’t prepare students...

Source: turnoff.us Deploying machine learning models at scale is one of the most pressing challenges faced by the community of data scientists today, and as ML models get more complex, it’s only getting harder. The most common way machine learning gets deployed today is on powerpoint slides. We estimate...

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...

Two of the most interesting things potentially ever are happening in our lifetime: the rise of machine learning and the blockchain revolution. Machine Learning (ML) systems have been able to surpass humans in many problem domains. These systems are now better at lip reading, speech recognition, location...
