Visualization of Stacked Generalization Ensemble of Neural Network Models

Stacking Ensemble for Deep Learning Neural Networks in Python

Model averaging is an ensemble technique where multiple sub-models contribute equally to a combined prediction. Model averaging can be improved by weighting the contributions of each sub-model to the combined prediction by the expected performance of the submodel. This can be extended further by training an entirely new model to learn how to best combine […]

The Attention Mechanism from Scratch

The attention mechanism was introduced to improve the performance of the encoder-decoder model for machine translation. The idea behind the attention mechanism was to permit the decoder to utilize the most relevant parts of the input sequence in a flexible manner, by a weighted combination of all of the encoded input vectors, with the most […]

A Gentle Introduction to Multiple-Model Machine Learning

A Gentle Introduction to Multiple-Model Machine Learning

An ensemble learning method involves combining the predictions from multiple contributing models. Nevertheless, not all techniques that make use of multiple machine learning models are ensemble learning algorithms. It is common to divide a prediction problem into subproblems. For example, some problems naturally subdivide into independent but related subproblems and a machine learning model can […]

Essence of Boosting Ensembles for Machine Learning

Essence of Boosting Ensembles for Machine Learning

Boosting is a powerful and popular class of ensemble learning techniques. Historically, boosting algorithms were challenging to implement, and it was not until AdaBoost demonstrated how to implement boosting that the technique could be used effectively. AdaBoost and modern gradient boosting work by sequentially adding models that correct the residual prediction errors of the model. […]
