“It’s Not Special” – The Best Advice I Ever Had

Recently I’ve had occasion to use the bootstrap and have been reminded at what a remarkably powerful technique this is despite it’s simplicity. I thought…

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…

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…

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…

Recently I was thinking about the gradient descent algorithm and I was bothered was one question - Why do we go in the direction of…

In this post I will build on the previous posts related to probability theory - I have defined the main results of probability from axioms…
