How are “Data Science” and “Machine Learning” related?

Machine learning is a subfield of computer science and artificial intelligence concerned with developing systems that learn from experience. You can learn more about the definition of machine learning in this post: What is Machine Learning? When most people talk about machine learning, they really mean predictive modeling. That is, developing models trained on historical […]

How to One Hot Encode Sequence Classification Data in Python

How to One Hot Encode Sequence Data in Python

Machine learning algorithms cannot work with categorical data directly. Categorical data must be converted to numbers. This applies when you are working with a sequence classification type problem and plan on using deep learning methods such as Long Short-Term Memory recurrent neural networks. In this tutorial, you will discover how to convert your input or […]
