Use neighborhood component analysis (NCA) to choose features for machine learning models. Manipulate and analyze data that is too big to fit in memory. Perform support vector machine (SVM) and Naive Bayes classification, create bags of decision trees, and fit lasso regression on out-of-memory data. Manipulate, compare, and store text data efficiently . Develop clients for MATLAB Production Server in any programming language that supports HTTP.


k-nearest neighbor algorithm using Python

@machinelearnbot

In machine learning, you may often wish to build predictors that allows to classify things into categories based on some set of associated values. For example, it is possible to provide a diagnosis to a patient based on data from previous patients. Many algorithms have been developed for automated classification, and common ones include random forests, support vector machines, Naïve Bayes classifiers, and many types of neural networks. To get a feel for how classification works, we take a simple example of a classification algorithm – k-Nearest Neighbours (kNN) – and build it from scratch in Python 2. You can use a mostly imperative style of coding, rather than a declarative/functional one with lambda functions and list comprehensions to keep things simple if you are starting with Python. Here, we will provide an introduction to the latter approach.


MESA: Maximum Entropy by Simulated Annealing

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Probabilistic reasoning systems combine different probabilistic rules and probabilistic facts to arrive at the desired probability values of consequences. In this paper we describe the MESA-algorithm (Maximum Entropy by Simulated Annealing) that derives a joint distribution of variables or propositions. It takes into account the reliability of probability values and can resolve conflicts between contradictory statements. The joint distribution is represented in terms of marginal distributions and therefore allows to process large inference networks and to determine desired probability values with high precision. The procedure derives a maximum entropy distribution subject to the given constraints. It can be applied to inference networks of arbitrary topology and may be extended into a number of directions.


Coding Deep Learning for Beginners -- Linear Regression (Part 3): Training with Gradient Descent

#artificialintelligence

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.


OMG - Emotion Challenge Solution

arXiv.org Machine Learning

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.
