Support Vector Machine Learning A-Z: Machine with Python


Are you ready to start your path to becoming a Machine Learning expert! Are you ready to train your machine like a father trains his son! A breakthrough in Machine Learning would be worth ten Microsofts." -Bill Gates There are lots of courses and lectures out there regarding Support Vector Machine. This course is truly a step-by-step. In every new tutorial we build on what had already learned and move one extra step forward and then we assign you a small task that is solved in the beginning of next video.

Is Deep Learning Necessary For Simple Classification Tasks


Deep learning (DL) models are known for tackling the nonlinearities associated with data, which the traditional estimators such as logistic regression couldn't. However, there is still a cloud of doubt with regards to the increased use of computationally intensive DL for simple classification tasks. To find out if DL really outperforms shallow models significantly, the researchers from the University of Pennsylvania experiment with three ML pipelines that involve traditional methods, AutoML and DL in a paper titled, 'Is Deep Learning Necessary For Simple Classification Tasks.' The UPenn researchers stated that a support-vector machine (SVM) model might predict more accurately susceptibility to a certain complex genetic disease than a gradient boosting model trained on the same dataset. Moreover, choosing different hyperparameters within that SVM model can vary performances.

What is Boosting in Machine Learning?


In this post, we will see a simple and intuitive explanation of Boosting algorithms: what they are, why they are so powerful, some of the different types, and how they are trained and used to make predictions. We will avoid all the heavy maths and go for a clear, simple, but in depth explanation that can be easily understood. However, additional material and resources will be left at the end of the post, in case you want to dive further into the topic. Traditionally, building a Machine Learning application consisted on taking a single learner, like a Logistic Regressor, a Decision Tree, Support Vector Machine, or an Artificial Neural Network, feeding it data, and teaching it to perform a certain task through this data. Then ensemble methods were born, which involve using many learners to enhance the performance of any single one of them individually.

Support Vector Machines and Kernel Methods: The New Generation of Learning Machines

AI Magazine

Kernel methods, a new generation of learning algorithms, utilize techniques from optimization, statistics, and functional analysis to achieve maximal generality, flexibility, and performance. These algorithms are different from earlier techniques used in machine learning in many respects: For example, they are explicitly based on a theoretical model of learning rather than on loose analogies with natural learning systems or other heuristics. They come with theoretical guarantees about their performance and have a modular design that makes it possible to separately implement and analyze their components. They are not affected by the problem of local minima because their training amounts to convex optimization. In the last decade, a sizable community of theoreticians and practitioners has formed around these methods, and a number of practical applications have been realized.

Emerging Applications for Intelligent Diabetes Management

AI Magazine

Diabetes management is a difficult task for patients, who must monitor and control their blood glucose levels in order to avoid serious diabetic complications. It is a difficult task for physicians, who must manually interpret large volumes of blood glucose data to tailor therapy to the needs of each patient. This paper describes three emerging applications that employ AI to ease this task: (1) case-based decision support for diabetes management; (2) machine learning classification of blood glucose plots; and (3) support vector regression for blood glucose prediction. The first application provides decision support by detecting blood glucose control problems and recommending therapeutic adjustments to correct them. The second provides an automated screen for excessive glycemic variability.

An easy guide to choose the right Machine Learning algorithm - KDnuggets


Well, there is no straightforward and sure-shot answer to this question. The answer depends on many factors like the problem statement and the kind of output you want, type and size of the data, the available computational time, number of features, and observations in the data, to name a few. Here are some important considerations while choosing an algorithm. It is usually recommended to gather a good amount of data to get reliable predictions. However, many a time, the availability of data is a constraint.

Machine learning tool trains on old code to spot bugs in new code


Altran has released a new tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help software engineers spot bugs during the coding process instead of at the end. Available on GitHub, Code Defect AI uses machine learning (ML) to analyze existing code, spot potential problems in new code, and suggest tests to diagnose and fix the errors. Walid Negm, group chief innovation officer at Altran, said that this new tool will help developers release quality code quickly. "The software release cycle needs algorithms that can help make strategic judgments, especially as code gets more complex," he said in a press release. Code Defect AI uses several ML techniques including random decision forests, support vector machines, multilayer perceptron (MLP) and logistic regression.
