When Does Deep Learning Work Better Than SVMs or Random Forests?

Guest blog by Sebastian Raschka, originally posted here.  

If we tackle a supervised learning problem, my advice is to start with the simplest hypothesis space first. I.e., try a linear model such as logistic regression. If this doesn't work "well" (i.e., it doesn't meet…

Searching Google for Images Similar to a Specific Image

You can search Google for pictures similar to a given image, for plagiarism detection or to find people that look like you. 

Here's how I did a test:

11 Deep Learning Articles, Tutorials and Resources

According to Wikipedia, deep learning (deep structured learning, hierarchical learning or deep machine learning) is a branch of machine learning based on a set of algorithms that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using multiple processing layers, with complex structures or otherwise, composed of multiple non-linear transformations.

Deep learning is sometimes defined as the intersection between machine learning and artificial intelligence. Many articles on deep…
