Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a technique used to find the core components that underlie different variables. It comes in very useful whenever doubts arise about the true origin of three or more variables. There are two main methods for performing a PCA: naive or less naive. In the naive method, you first check some conditions in your data which will determine the essentials of the analysis. In the less-naive method, you set the those yourself,…Continue

Cross-validation is a technique used to assess the accuracy of a predictive model, based on training set data. It splits the training sets into test and control sets. The test sets are used to fine-tune the model to increase performance (better classification rate or reduced errors in prediction) and the control sets are used to simulate how the model would perform outside the training set. The control and test sets must be carefully chosen for this method to make…Continue

Artificial intelligence now fits in our daily lives and is deployed in more and more business sectors, hustling human expertise. Artificial intelligence should transform one job over two, but does not necessarily represent a threat. In fact, these jobs should be redirected to less repetitive tasks, with more added value.
According to a PwC study from March 2017, 70% of the jobs in the energy sector and 65% of the jobs in the consumer sector could be…

In this article we will discuss the machine learning method called “decision trees”, moving quickly over the usual “how decision trees work” and spending time on “why decision trees work.” We will write from a computational learning theory perspective, and hope this helps make both decision trees and computational learning theory more comprehensible. The goal…Continue
