Developed back in the 50s by Rosenblatt and colleagues, this extremely simple algorithm can be viewed as the foundation for some of the most successful classifiers today, including suport vector machines and logistic regression, solved using stochastic gradient descent. The convergence proof for the Perceptron algorithm is one of the most elegant pieces of math I've seen in ML. Most useful: Boosting, especially boosted decision trees. This intuitive approach allows you to build highly accurate ML models, by combining many simple ones. Boosting is one of the most practical methods in ML, it's widely used in industry, can handle a wide variety of data types, and can be implemented at scale.

This short paper describes our solution to the 2018 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence One-Minute Gradual-Emotional Behavior Challenge, whose goal was to estimate continuous arousal and valence values from short videos. We designed four base regression models using visual and audio features, and then used a spectral approach to fuse them to obtain improved performance.

The objective of this course is to give you a wholistic understanding of machine learning, covering theory, application, and inner workings of supervised, unsupervised, and deep learning algorithms. In this series, we'll be covering linear regression, K Nearest Neighbors, Support Vector Machines (SVM), flat clustering, hierarchical clustering, and neural networks. For each major algorithm that we cover, we will discuss the high level intuitions of the algorithms and how they are logically meant to work. Next, we'll apply the algorithms in code using real world data sets along with a module, such as with Scikit-Learn. Finally, we'll be diving into the inner workings of each of the algorithms by recreating them in code, from scratch, ourselves, including all of the math involved.

This is the 5th article of series "Coding Deep Learning for Beginners". You will be able to find here links to all articles, agenda, and general information about an estimated release date of next articles on the bottom of the 1st article. They are also available in my open source portfolio -- MyRoadToAI, along with some mini-projects, presentations, tutorials and links. In this article, I will explain the concept of training Machine Learning algorithms with Gradient Descent. Majority of supervised algorithms are taking advantage of it -- especially all Neural Networks.
