Variational Autoencoders for Recommendation

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 millions of ways. To truly polish how z can be generated, we turn […]

Will my Customer Come Back : Playing with CLV

I’ve been tinkering with customer lifetime value modeling the past few days since the Olist dataset in Kaggle went up. In particular, I wanted to explore the tried and tested probabilistic models, BG/NBD and GammaGamma to forecast future purchases and profits. I also wanted to see if the machine learning approach could do well — […]

Can a machine distinguish dog breeds?

Time for another vision blog. Here, I’ll talk about dogs. Humans can identify a dog from a cat well enough, but it’s a little harder to distinguish specific dog breeds. For instance, can you tell which is which in the following? Well, on the left is a Siberian Husky and on the right is an […]
