Deep Learning And Neural Networks

While Artificial Intelligence (AI) is about machines doing tasks that typically require human intelligence, and Machine Learning (ML) about machines learning by experience and acquiring skills without human involvement,  Deep Learning (DL) is about mimicking how the human brain works. DL, a part of ML methods based on Artificial Neural Networks (ANN or just NN),…

K-Means Explained

K-Means, a method of vector quantization that is popular for cluster analysis in data mining, is about choosing the number of clusters, selecting the centroids (not necessarily from the dataset) at random K points, assigning each data point to the closest centroid (forming K clusters), computing and placing the new centroids of each cluster, reassigning…

Is There Any Real Difference Between Classification And Clustering In Machine Learning?

Don’t Classification and Clustering have more similarities than differences? Aren’t both about characterizing objects into groups by one or more features? Classification is about classifying data into predefined categories (defining whether a patient record is associated with a specific disease), while Clustering is about grouping data looking similar to a set of groups (grouping patients’ records…

SVM Simplified In Two Photos

It is about taking the apples looking the most like an apple, the oranges looking the most like an orange, and telling how apples and oranges should be looking like. Those are the farther red and green points from the line separating the two categories.   The Support Vectors, the points supporting the whole algorithm, have…
