In machine learning, a parametric model is any model that captures all the information about its predictions within a finite set of parameters. Sometimes the model must be trained to select its parameters, as in the case of neural networks. Sometimes the parameters are selected by hand or through a simple... read more

Machine learning model security is not discussed enough. In serverless GPU–attached environments, block storage solutions like S3 are dependable for persisting your model files. Other than the URI, no other relevant information regarding the model file is saved in the source code.  This exposes an...

What is multiclass classification?  Multiclass classification is a classification task that consists of more than two classes, (ie. using a model to identify animal types in images from an encyclopedia). In multiclass classification, a sample can only have one class (ie. an elephant is only an elephant;...
