I'm writing to share a book I just published that I think many of you might find interesting or useful.
The book is called "Machine Learning from Scratch." It provides complete derivations of the most common algorithms in ML (OLS, logistic regression, naive Bayes, trees, boosting, neural nets, etc.) both in theory and math. It also demonstrates constructions of each of these methods from scratch in Python using only numpy.
My aim with the…

Harvard Business Review has declared data science as the ‘sexiest profession of the 21st century’, and rightfully so. Keeping in mind, the amount of data being generated each day, the future scope of data science is bright, in fact, very bright. Students of technology, business, economics, mathematics, computer science, and the related subject domains, are all eligible to prepare for a data analyst role.
In the U.S., it is expected that there will exist 2.7 million openings…Continue

My FREE book about Bayesian Networks, Bayesuvius, continues to grow. It currently has 33 chapters. The purpose of this blog post is to announce the release of a new Bayesuvius chapter on Belief Propagation (BP).
Belief Propagation (BP) (aka Message Passing)was first proposed in 1982 by Judea Pearl to simplify the exact evaluation of probability marginals of…Continue

Last week, the UK witnessed chaos over exam results (GCSE and A-levels).
The fiasco also provided a textbook case on how to build a biased algorithm.
Sadly, this will be the shape of things to come.
These decisions were overturned because of the backlash – but many more…Continue

Enterprise software, as well as other kinds, remains a complicated endeavor, thus necessitating the use of modern means to gauge, analyze, and adapt their performance. And one of the most popular technologies in the performance engineering market right now is machine learning. Since it has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to not only help foresee performance issues and fix them. When used in the right manner — this combination can also help performance engineering teams to steer clear of…Continue

While the skipjack tuna is a reasonably attractive fish, it is perhaps less so if its colours are inverted as in the case below. Later in the blog I will be introducing the "Destroying Angel Formation." This can be found during a full-spectrum inversal of the skipjack waveforms, which might occur before a major stock-market correction or crash.
Skipjack as a form of technical analysis is primarily about…Continue
