Collaborating Authors



In this seminar we do research in Computational Skepticism, that is, building systems to answer the question "Why Should I Trust an Algorithms Predictions?" As a group, students and any collaborators will be writing a book called "Computational Skepticism." Small groups of students will collaborate on writing a chapter. Two students have already started on their chapter on model interpretability, so you can see what the beginnings of this process looks like here Once completed the Computational Skepticism book will be available for free online and published with an ISBN through the Banataba project through a publishing site such as

[2020] Machine Learning and Deep Learning Bootcamp in Python


These topics are getting very hot nowadays because these learning algorithms can be used in several fields from software engineering to investment banking. Learning algorithms can recognize patterns which can help detect cancer for example or we may construct algorithms that can have a very good guess about stock prices movement in the market. In each section we will talk about the theoretical background for all of these algorithms then we are going to implement these problems together. We will use Python with SkLearn, Keras and TensorFlow. Machine Learning Algorithms: machine learning approaches are becoming more and more important even in 2020.

Modern Reinforcement Learning: Actor-Critic Methods


Modern Reinforcement Learning: Actor-Critic Methods Udemy Coupon ED How to Implement Cutting Edge Artificial Intelligence Research Papers in the Open AI Gym Using the PyTorch Framework Get Udemy Course What you'll learn How to code policy gradient methods in PyTorch How to code Deep Deterministic Policy Gradients (DDPG) in PyTorch How to code Twin Delayed Deep Deterministic Policy Gradients (TD3) in PyTorch How to code actor critic algorithms in PyTorch How to implement cutting edge artificial intelligence research papers in Python Description In this advanced course on deep reinforcement learning, you will learn how to implement policy gradient, actor critic, deep deterministic policy gradient (DDPG), and twin delayed deep deterministic policy gradient (TD3) algorithms in a variety of challenging environments from the Open AI gym. The course begins with a practical review of the fundamentals of reinforcement learning, including topics such as: The Bellman Equation Markov Decision Processes Monte Carlo Prediction Temporal Difference Prediction TD(0) Temporal Difference Control with Q Learning And moves straight into coding up our first agent: a blackjack playing artificial intelligence. From there we will progress to teaching an agent to balance the cart pole using Q learning. After mastering the fundamentals, the pace quickens, and we move straight into an introduction to policy gradient methods. We cover the REINFORCE algorithm, and use it to teach an artificial intelligence to land on the moon in the lunar lander environment from the Open AI gym.



As the name implies, this course takes a more applied perspective than Andrew Ng's machine learning lecture at Stanford. You will see more code than mathematics. Concepts and algorithms are using the popular Python libraries scikit-learn and Keras.

16 Free Machine Learning Books


The following is a list of free books on Machine Learning. A Brief Introduction To Neural Networks provides a comprehensive overview of the subject of neural networks and is divided into 4 parts –Part I: From Biology to Formalization -- Motivation, Philosophy, History and Realization of Neural Models,Part II: Supervised learning Network Paradigms, Part III: Unsupervised learning Network Paradigms and Part IV: Excursi, Appendices and Registers. A Course In Machine Learning is designed to provide a gentle and pedagogically organized introduction to the field and provide a view of machine learning that focuses on ideas and models, not on math. The audience of this book is anyone who knows differential calculus and discrete math, and can program reasonably well. An undergraduate in their fourth or fifth semester should be fully capable of understanding this material.
