## A Gentle Introduction to Monte Carlo Sampling for Probability

Monte Carlo methods are a class of techniques for randomly sampling a probability distribution. There are many problem domains where describing or estimating the probability distribution is relatively straightforward, but calculating a desired quantity is intractable. This may be due to many reasons, such as the stochastic nature of the domain or an exponential number […]

The 5 Most Common Mistakes That Beginners MakeAnd How To Avoid Them. I help beginners get started in machine learning. But I see the same mistakes in both mindset and action again and again. In this post, you will discover the 5 most common ways that I see beginners slip-up when getting started in machine learning. […]

## Logistic Regression for Machine Learning

Logistic regression is another technique borrowed by machine learning from the field of statistics. It is the go-to method for binary classification problems (problems with two class values). In this post you will discover the logistic regression algorithm for machine learning. After reading this post you will know: The many names and terms used when […]

## Basic Concepts in Machine Learning

What are the basic concepts in machine learning? I found that the best way to discover and get a handle on the basic concepts in machine learning is to review the introduction chapters to machine learning textbooks and to watch the videos from the first model in online courses. Pedro Domingos is a lecturer and professor on machine […]

## How To Get Better At Machine Learning

Colorado Reed from Metacademy wrote a great post recently titled “Level-Up Your Machine Learning” to answer the question he often receives of: What should I do if I want to get ‘better’ at machine learning, but I don’t know what I want to learn? In this post you will discover a summary of Colorado recommendations […]

## Java Machine Learning

Are you a Java programmer and looking to get started or practice machine learning? Writing programs that make use of machine learning is the best way to learn machine learning. You can write the algorithms yourself from scratch, but you can make a lot more progress if you leverage an existing open source library. In […]
