Cross-validation and hyperparameter tuning


Almost every machine learning algorithm comes with a large number of settings that we, the machine learning researchers and practitioners, need to specify. These tuning knobs, the so-called hyperparameters, help us control the behavior of machine learning algorithms when optimizing for performance, finding the right balance between bias and variance. Hyperparameter tuning for performance optimization is an art in itself,…

5 Rules of Probability in One Picture (Cat and Dog Edition)

Knowledge of the basic rules of probability is a must-have for any data scientist. But if you're a visual learner like me, learning the algebraic representations of the 5 basic rules of probability (i.e. P(A) + P(B) = 1) is a challenge. I've never been very good at memorizing formulas, but images stick in my head like ear worms.  Whenever I come across a new formula, I try to make it visual with a picture or doodle. The following picture shows some of the images I created to…

A simple guide to AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

This article was written on Graymatter. 

Let start at the beginning; back in the 50’s we dreamt about robots making our tea (AI) and what we could do with our spare time, fuelled by the space race and science fiction it was a heady dream. Until that is the 80’s, where we started to ‘teach’ machines simple tasks (Machine Learning), the more times a machine completed a task the more it learnt and improved. We’ve now reached Deep Learning, where through the improvement of…
