I’m going to use NVTabular with PyTorch Lightning to train a wide and deep recommender model on MovieLens 25M. It’s quite a chimera implementation as you shall see.
NVIDIA Merlin on a Potato PC Setup
NVIDIA Merlin is a high-level open-source library to accelerate recommender systems on NVIDIA GPUs at scale. I’m on a potato PC setup relying on free instances. Can I make it work?
Header image note: I typed ‘variation’ in Pexels and it popped up. Masarap! We can turn a simple autoencoder into something sophisticated. Autoencoders discover a latent mapping z, which as a lower-dimensional representation of the input x, can be useful for pre-training networks and creating recommender models. However, how autoencoders compress information may come in […]
Autoencoders are a simple neural network approach to recommendation
Variational autoencoders can discover unique ways to encode-decode the input from a distribution. Bonus: It can generate images!
Back in college, I did a class project where I used computer vision techniques for the first time. It was the age before deep learning. Today, I want to revisit this old project.
A tutorial to create a recommender pipeline with Kedro and MLFlow.
MLOps is all about creating sustainability in machine learning. To maintain structure in this fast-paced field, you can try out Kedro, an open-source Python project that aims to help ML practitioners create modular, maintainable, and reproducible pipelines.
A Name Across Time and Numbers
With data, I explore the name Cassandra, Zoe, their variants and how they move in popularity over time.
COVID-19 and Blood Chemistry Tests
Today I will be taking a look at blood chemistry tests and COVID-19. I am trying to see associations of the different blood cell types when there is a SARS-COV-2 infection. I am joined with my friend Dr. Earl Tiu as I try to explain my findings to him. The data is sourced from Kaggle, […]
