Top 3 machine learning libraries for Python

#artificialintelligence

A 2016 paper, Theano: A Python framework for fast computation of mathematical expressions, provides a thorough overview of the library. In the first Open Source Yearbook, TensorFlow was picked as a project to fork in 2016. We also learned about TensorFlow-based project Magenta in an article by Josh Simmons, A tour of Google's 2016 open source releases. Simmons says Magenta is an effort to advance the state of the art in machine intelligence for music and art generation, and to build a collaborative community of artists, coders, and machine-learning researchers.

The ever-increasing size of modern datasets combined with the difficulty of obtaining labeled information has made semi-supervised learning one of the problems of significant practical importance in modern data analysis. VAE offers a novel way to enforce structure on the representation surface, by doing so, it opens the possibility of employing traditional semi supervised learning techniques on the structured embedding space. In this talk, Shair Harel covers how VAE imposes latent space structure constraint, and how we can use it in a semi-supervised settings.



Physicists uncover similarities between classical and quantum machine learning

#artificialintelligence

This finding helps in establishing the ultimate capabilities of quantum learning algorithms, and opens the door to applying key results in statistical learning to quantum scenarios." The scientists showed that both classical and quantum inductive supervised learning algorithms must have these two phases (a training phase and a test phase) that are completely distinct and independent. By revealing this similarity, the new results generalize some key ideas in classical statistical learning theory to quantum scenarios. "They will be potentially useful in all sorts of situations where information is naturally found in a quantum form, and will likely be a part of future quantum information processing protocols.


Improving Predictions with Ensemble Model

@machinelearnbot

Ensemble methods are learning models that achieve performance by combining the opinions of multiple learners. Typically, an ensemble model is a supervised learning technique for combining multiple weak learners or models to produce a strong learner with the concept of Bagging and Boosting for data sampling.


Announcing Microsoft Machine Learning Library for Apache Spark

#artificialintelligence

We're excited to announce the Microsoft Machine Learning library for Apache Spark – a library designed to make data scientists more productive on Spark, increase the rate of experimentation, and leverage cutting-edge machine learning techniques – including deep learning – on very large datasets. However, they struggle with low-level APIs, for example to index strings, assemble feature vectors and coerce data into a layout expected by machine learning algorithms. Microsoft Machine Learning for Apache Spark (MMLSpark) simplifies many of these common tasks for building models in PySpark, making you more productive and letting you focus on the data science. With MMLSpark, we provide easy-to-use Python APIs that operate on Spark DataFrames and are integrated into the SparkML pipeline model.

Machine learning has various iterations, including supervised learning, unsupervised learning and deep and reinforcement learning. The purpose of deep learning is to use multi-layered neural networks to analyze a trend, while reinforcement learning encourages algorithms to explore and find the most profitable trading strategies. In a finance context, J.P. Morgan says supervised learning algorithms are provided with provided historical data and asked to find the relationship that has the best predictive power. If you're only planning to learn one coding language related to machine learning, J.P. Morgan suggests you choose R, along with the related packages below.
