Ability to generalize - A measure of intelligence ?

Knowledge acquisition is about building generalization capabilities. In machine learning world, generalization refer to the model's ability to make accurate predictions from never before seen data. Well generalized models possess intelligence to work on data from new scenarios. This is true for human intelligence also. Children start learning from examples and initially they fail to respond properly to unforeseen situations. Gradually they acquire generalization skills to respond to all… Continue

Introduction



In this article, we will discuss the so called 'Curse of Dimensionality', and explain why it is important when designing a classifier. In the following sections I will provide an intuitive explanation of this concept, illustrated by a clear example of overfitting due to the curse of dimensionality.

Consider an example in which we have a set of images, each of which depicts either a cat or a dog. We would like to create a classifier that is able to…
