The Bayesian vs frequentist approaches: Implications for machine learning – Part One

Background

The arguments / discussions between the Bayesian vs frequentist approaches in statistics are long running. I am interested in how these approaches impact machine learning. Often, books on machine learning combine the two approaches, or in some cases, take only one approach. This does not help from a learning…

What distributions do we need to use Deep Learning?

 

I was asked this question: “What distributions do we need to use Deep Learning?”

 

This is a question with a multi-faceted answer.

 

The direct answer is that algorithms which are traditionally referred to as deep learning (MLP, CNN, LSTM) do not need to know the distribution in advance since they…

Advantages and Disadvantages of Automated Machine Learning

The title of this blog is accurate

There are indeed some caveats / disadvantages to automated machine learning.

This blog was motivated by a question in my University of Oxford class effectively asking:

Will automated machine learning take over all the data scientists’ tasks?

If you listen to the…

A simple way to understand the statistical foundations of data science

Introduction

There are six broad questions which can be answered in data analysis according to an article called “What is the question?” By Jeffery T. Leek, Roger D. Peng. These questions help to frame our thinking of data science problems. Here, I propose that these questions also provide a unified framework for relating statistics…

Developing carrier grade enterprise AI applications based on 5G, IoT and the Cloud

In this article, we discuss how 5G technologies could empower the next generation enterprise AI applications.

What does it mean to develop carrier grade applications?

Carrier grade or Telco grade applications refer to a system or hardware or software component that is extremely reliable and well tested.  In practice, this means applications which have high availability, fast recovery, guaranteed quality of service and redundancy.

For Enterprise…

The implications of Huang’s law for the Artificial Intelligence stack

 Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang proposed an idea which the media has labelled ‘Huang’s law’ along the lines of Moore’s law.

 

Moore’s predicts that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years.

 

As per Huang’s law, GPU performance will double every two years.

 

Whether or not you…
