Using a Bathroom Faucet to Teach Neural Network Basic Concepts

They say that the best ideas sometimes come to you while you are in the shower, and this idea of how to explain two important Neural Network concepts – Backpropagation and Stochastic Gradient Descent – actually did come to me as I was trying to set the perfect water temperature for my morning shower.

As I was struggling to adjust the two shower handles – one handle that controlled scolding hot and the other handle that controlled flash freezing – it occurred to me that I was a simple…

TensorFlow 1.x vs 2.x. – summary of changes

Overview of changes TensorFlow 1.0 vs TensorFlow 2.0

Earlier this year, Google announced TensorFlow 2.0, it is a major leap from the existing TensorFlow 1.0. The key differences are as follows:

 

Ease of use: Many old libraries (example tf.contrib) were removed, and some consolidated. For example, in TensorFlow1.x the model could be made using Contrib, layers, Keras or estimators, so many options for the same task confused many new users.…

Automation Eliminates Expensive Data Entry Errors

Organizations rarely regard data entry as a key strategic operation. In spite of the rise in automation, companies across the world rely on manual data entry for procurement. They employ staff to transfer data from requisition orders, purchase orders, and invoices into enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems such as SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Netsuite, and many others. 

Transcription and transposition errors are…

Executive Mandate #1:  Become Value Driven, Not Data Driven

I hate it when I hear senior executives state that they want to become data-driven, as if somehow having data is value in of itself.  Now, one can hardly blame the unenlightened executive whose only perspectives on data are associated with statements like “Data is really the new oil” (Wall Street Journal) or “…

Artificial Neural Networks in a Nutshell

According to Wikipedia, an ANN is based on a collection of connected units or nodes called artificial neurons, which loosely model the neurons in a biological brain. Each connection, like the synapses in a biological brain, can transmit a signal to other neurons. An artificial neuron that receives a signal then processes it and can signal neurons connected to it.

In ANN implementations, the "signal" at a connection is a real number, and the output of each neuron is computed by some…
