- Machine Learning Applied to Big Data, Explained - Jul 17, 2017.
Machine learning with Big Data is, in many ways, different than "regular" machine learning. This informative image is helpful in identifying the steps in machine learning with Big Data, and how they fit together into a process of their own.
- How to Build a Data Science Pipeline - Jul 14, 2017.
Start with y. Concentrate on formalizing the predictive problem, building the workflow, and turning it into production rather than optimizing your predictive model. Once the former is done, the latter is easy.
- Automated Machine Learning — A Paradigm Shift That Accelerates Data Scientist Productivity - Jul 13, 2017.
There is a growing community around creating tools that automate many machine learning tasks, as well as other tasks that are part of the machine learning workflow. The paradigm that encapsulates this idea is often referred to as automated machine learning.
- CAN (Creative Adversarial Network) - Explained - Jul 12, 2017.
GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks), a type of Deep Learning networks, have been very successful in creating non-procedural content. This work explores the possibility of machine generated creative content.
