Using Neural Networks for Regression: Radial Basis Function Networks

Neural Networks are very powerful models for classification tasks. But what about regression? Suppose we had a set of data points and wanted to project that trend into the future to make predictions. Regression has many applications in finance, physics, biology, and many other fields. Radial Basis Function Networks (RBF nets) are used for exactly … Read moreUsing Neural Networks for Regression: Radial Basis Function Networks

Data Clustering with K-Means

Determining data clusters is an essential task to any data analysis and can be a very tedious task to do manually! This task is nearly impossible to do by hand in higher-dimensional spaces! Along comes machine learning to save the day! We will be discussing the K-Means clustering algorithm, the most popular flavor of clustering … Read moreData Clustering with K-Means

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 moreA Guide to Improving Deep Learning’s Performance

Complete Guide to Deep Neural Networks – Part 1

Neural networks have been around for decades, but recent success stems from our ability to successfully train them with many hidden layers. We’ll be opening up the black-box that is deep neural networks and looking at several important algorithms necessary for understanding how they work. To solidify our understanding, we’ll code a deep neural network … Read moreComplete Guide to Deep Neural Networks – Part 1

Building Blocks – Data Science and Linear Regression

“Data science” or “Big data analyst” is a phrase that has been tossed around since the advent of Big Data. But what is it, really? Well imagine working for a retail company. One of the questions you may be asked to answer is “how many chips should we stock up for this month?” It seems … Read moreBuilding Blocks – Data Science and Linear Regression
