Cross validation is a technique commonly used In Data Science. Most people think that it plays a small part in the data science pipeline, i.e. while training the model. However, it has a broader application in model selection and hyperparameter tuning.
Let us first explore the process of cross validation itself and then see how it applies to different parts of the data science pipeline
Cross-validation is a resampling procedure used to evaluate machine learning models on a…Continue
As a teacher of Data Science (Data Science for Internet of Things course at the University of Oxford), I am always fascinated in cross connection between concepts. I noticed an interesting image on Tess Fernandez slideshare (which I very much recommend you follow) which talked of…Continue

Understanding the maths behind forward and back propagation is not very easy.
There are some very good – but also very technical explanations.
For example : The Matrix Calculus You Need For Deep Learning Terence Parr and Jeremy Howard is an excellent resource but still too complex for beginners.
I found a much simpler explanation in the ml cheatsheet.

Automated machine learning is a fundamental shift to machine learning and data science. Data science as it stands today, is resource-intensive, expensive and challenging. It requires skills which are in high demand. Automated Machine learning may not quite lead to the beach lifestyle for the data…Continue

“The question is not whether intelligent machines can have any emotions, but whether machines can be intelligent without any emotions”.
The ability of AI to recognise emotions is a fascinating subject and has wide-ranging applications across many fields of…Continue

One of the hardest problem in AI is not technical
It is social
Specifically, it is the problem of “educating people for living and working in a world dominated by AI”
This blog is based on my talk and notes in panels at the…Continue
AI and patents - trends to watch from the WIPO technology trends report
WIPO Technology Trends report 2019 came as a surprise to me. We in AI are not used to thinking about patents so much because tools / platforms are mostly Open sourced.
Here are the key…Continue

I spoke at the iot expo on AI and smart cities in London this week
Smart cities have been around for more than a decade
The overall numbers for Smart cities are promising
When I was teaching a session on AI at an MBA program at the London School of Economics, I thought of explaining AI from the perspective of the life-cycle of Data. This explanation is useful because more people are used to data (than to code). I welcome comments on this approach. Essentially, we consider how data is used and transformed for AI and what are its…Continue

After a recent webinar, I was asked about advice for getting a job in AI for a fresh graduate
This is a good question and not often answered

Note: This is a long post, but I kept it as a single post to maintain continuity of the thought flow
In this longish post, I have tried to explain Deep Learning starting from familiar ideas like machine learning. This approach forms a part of my forthcoming book. You can connect with me on Linkedin to know more about the book. I have used this approach in my teaching. It is based on ‘learning by…Continue
Most of us start working with specific programming languages like TensorFlow and Pyspark
So, we are relatively not so used to working with Cloud APIs.
But Cloud APIs for Machine Learning and Deep Learning can make your life a lot easier in building AI and Machine Learning services
Of course, the Cloud APIs have a cost – but they…Continue
Geoffrey Hinton dismissed the need for explainable AI. A range of experts have explained why he is wrong.
I actually tend to agree with…Continue
In this post, I explain the maths of Deep Learning in a simplified manner. To keep the explanation simple, we cover the workings of the MLP mode (Multilayer Perceptron). I have drawn upon a number of references – which are indicated in the post in the relevant sections.
Deep Learning models are playing a significant role in many domains. In the simplest case, deep learning involves stacking multiple neural network layers to address a…Continue

Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) is an approach/philosophy for data analysis that employs a variety of techniques (graphical and quantitative) to better understand data. It is easy to get lost in the visualizations of EDA and to also lose track of the purpose of EDA. EDA aims to make the downstream analysis easier.…Continue
