Very interesting list of algorithm, data science, machine learning, and computer science keywords. To check the definition for any keyword, go to xlinux.nist.gov. For whatever reasons, and like in many similar lists, the top three letters have more entries than subsequent letters, as if the editor suddenly became lazy when hitting letter D (maybe product developers create products that start with letter A, B, or C, to show up at the…
