Machine Learning & Linear Algebra


Linear algebra is essential in Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL). It is not hard. You just need to bring yourself up to speed. I will skip fundamentals like what is a vector, and matrix…

Introduction to Linear Algebra for Applied Machine Learning with Python


Linear algebra is to machine learning as flour to bakery: every machine learning model is based in linear algebra, as every cake is based in flour. It is not the only ingredient, of course. Machine learning models need vector calculus, probability, and optimization, as cakes need sugar, eggs, and butter. Applied machine learning, like bakery, is essentially about combining these mathematical ingredients in clever ways to create useful (tasty?) models. This document contains introductory level linear algebra notes for applied machine learning. It is meant as a reference rather than a comprehensive review. It also a good introduction for people that don't need a deep understanding of linear algebra, but still want to learn about the fundamentals to read about machine learning or to use pre-packaged machine learning solutions. Further, it is a good source for people that learned linear algebra a while ago and need a refresher. These notes are based in a series of (mostly) freely ...
