Hey all, it’s time for another machine learning blog. This time, I’m tackling recommendation systems. I’ve found this neat dataset, Steam Video games over at Kaggle. You should definitely check it out. We’ll be going from analyzing how people play these games, to how we can infer ratings from usage patterns. I’ll be implementing my […]
I thought it would be interesting to share a newcomer’s experiences with machine learning. Hopefully you can also get inspired into learning this amazing discipline.
This is quite a late post for me, but I just want to detail here the session I taught three weeks ago. We have a large machine learning competition in Trend Micro and I volunteered to hold a boot camp for Trend Labs, the “Philippine division”, prior to the competition. Thinking that it was high […]
Working on week 1 y’all. Week 1’s goal is to lay out the foundations for data science, mainly data exploration and feature engineering. We worked with IPython, wrangled with NumPy matrices, tussled with Pandas’ indexing and gazed at Matplotlib with amazement. A lot of it was syntactic sugar, and it does takes some time getting […]
Another interesting thing about deep learning is, being inspired by neural networks, it is similar to how our brains work. Our brains have different areas for different stimuli, and our neurons combine these signals hierarchically.
