## Building a Logistic Regression Classifier in PyTorch

Logistic regression is a type of regression that predicts the probability of an event. It is used for classification problems and has many applications in the fields of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data mining. The formula of logistic regression is to apply a sigmoid function to the output of a linear function. This article […]

## Training Logistic Regression with Cross-Entropy Loss in PyTorch

In the previous session of our PyTorch series, we demonstrated how badly initialized weights can impact the accuracy of a classification model when mean square error (MSE) loss is used. We noticed that the model didn’t converge during training and its accuracy was also significantly reduced. In the following, you will see what happens if […]

## Building an Image Classifier with a Single-Layer Neural Network in PyTorch

A single-layer neural network, also known as a single-layer perceptron, is the simplest type of neural network. It consists of only one layer of neurons, which are connected to the input layer and the output layer. In case of an image classifier, the input layer would be an image and the output layer would be […]

## Text Generation with LSTM in PyTorch

Recurrent neural network can be used for time series prediction. In which, a regression neural network is created. It can also be used as generative model, which usually is a classification neural network model. A generative model is to learn certain pattern from data, such that when it is presented with some prompt, it can […]

## LSTM for Time Series Prediction in PyTorch

Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) is a structure that can be used in neural network. It is a type of recurrent neural network (RNN) that expects the input in the form of a sequence of features. It is useful for data such as time series or string of text. In this post, you will learn about […]

## Handwritten Digit Recognition with LeNet5 Model in PyTorch

A popular demonstration of the capability of deep learning techniques is object recognition in image data. The “hello world” of object recognition for machine learning and deep learning is the MNIST dataset for handwritten digit recognition. In this post, you will discover how to develop a deep learning model to achieve near state-of-the-art performance on […]

## Building a Convolutional Neural Network in PyTorch

Neural networks are built with layers connected to each other. There are many different kind of layers. For image related applications, you can always find convolutional layers. It is a layer with very few parameters but applied over a large sized input. It is powerful because it can preserve the spatial structure of the image. […]

## Visualizing a PyTorch Model

PyTorch is a deep learning library. You can build very sophisticated deep learning models with PyTorch. However, there are times you want to have a graphical representation of your model architecture. In this post, you will learn: How to save your PyTorch model in an exchange format How to use Netron to create a graphical […]
