All About Autoencoders

Data compression is a big topic that’s used in computer vision, computer networks, computer architecture, and many other fields. The point of data compression is to convert our input into a smaller representation that we recreate, to a degree of quality. This smaller representation is what would be passed around, and, when anyone needed the original, they … Read more

A Guide to Improving Deep Learning’s Performance

Although deep learning has great potential to produce fantastic results, we can’t simply leave everything to the learning algorithm! In other words, we can’t treat the model as some black-box, closed entity that can read our minds and perform the best! We have to be involved in the training and design process to make sure … Read more

Overview of Machine Learning

Computers are incredibly dumb. They have to be told explicitly what to do in the form of programs. Programs have to account for every possible branch of logic and are specific to the task at hand. If there are any anomalies in the set of inputs, a program might not produce the right output or … Read more
