Multi-Label Classification with Deep Learning

Multi-Label Classification with Deep Learning

Multi-label classification involves predicting zero or more class labels. Unlike normal classification tasks where class labels are mutually exclusive, multi-label classification requires specialized machine learning algorithms that support predicting multiple mutually non-exclusive classes or “labels.” Deep learning neural networks are an example of an algorithm that natively supports multi-label classification problems. Neural network models for […]

Deep Learning Models for Multi-Output Regression

Deep Learning Models for Multi-Output Regression

Multi-output regression involves predicting two or more numerical variables. Unlike normal regression where a single value is predicted for each sample, multi-output regression requires specialized machine learning algorithms that support outputting multiple variables for each prediction. Deep learning neural networks are an example of an algorithm that natively supports multi-output regression problems. Neural network models […]

Time Series Forecasting With Prophet in Python

Time series forecasting can be challenging as there are many different methods you could use and many different hyperparameters for each method. The Prophet library is an open-source library designed for making forecasts for univariate time series datasets. It is easy to use and designed to automatically find a good set of hyperparameters for the […]

How to Set Axis for Rows and Columns in NumPy

NumPy arrays provide a fast and efficient way to store and manipulate data in Python. They are particularly useful for representing data as vectors and matrices in machine learning. Data in NumPy arrays can be accessed directly via column and row indexes, and this is reasonably straightforward. Nevertheless, sometimes we must perform operations on arrays […]

Probability Decision Surface for Logistic Regression on a Binary Classification Task

Plot a Decision Surface for Machine Learning Algorithms in Python

Classification algorithms learn how to assign class labels to examples, although their decisions can appear opaque. A popular diagnostic for understanding the decisions made by a classification algorithm is the decision surface. This is a plot that shows how a fit machine learning algorithm predicts a coarse grid across the input feature space. A decision […]

A Gentle Introduction to Computational Learning Theory

A Gentle Introduction to Computational Learning Theory

Computational learning theory, or statistical learning theory, refers to mathematical frameworks for quantifying learning tasks and algorithms. These are sub-fields of machine learning that a machine learning practitioner does not need to know in great depth in order to achieve good results on a wide range of problems. Nevertheless, it is a sub-field where having […]
