Introduction A very interesting paper was brought to my attention which proposes an adjustment to the traditional Stochastic Gradient Descent approach called Oddball Stochastic Gradient…

Introductory Concepts In the field of statistics, researchers are interested in making inferences from data. The data is collected from a population; the data drawn…

This is a post I've been wanting to write for a while - Quadratic forms and Definite matrices are everywhere in linear algebra and they…

Recently, I’ve had a chance to play with R’s plumber library and used it to run scripts on a schedule. This post will show how…

Introduction I have a startling admission to make. When I was a student, I scoffed at Dijkstra's algorithm - I had paid it no mind…

Introduction Recently, I've had a chance to play with word embedding models. Word embedding models involve taking a text corpus and generating vector representations for…

Although data science as a job function is relatively new compared to roles like software engineer or database administrator, in the age of “Big Data”,…

Once you’ve built a machine learning classifier, the next step is to validate it and see how well it fits the data. This short post…

The Naive Bayes Algorithm is a simple and elegant approach for tackling supervised learning problems in Machine Learning. This post will be a brief introduction…
