Deep Learning vs. Machine Learning

Deep Learning is a category of machine learning with special advantages for some tasks and disadvantages for others. Machine learning workflows begin by identifying features within data sets. For structured information with relatively few columns and rows, this is straightforward.

Classification Types and Uses

Classifications are the most frequently used—and most useful—prediction types. Classifications are predictions that separate data into groups. Binary Classification produces “yes-no” or “in-out” answers when there are only two choices. Multi-Class Classification applies when there are three or more possibilities and shows probabilities

How Important Is Explainability?

How Important Is Explainability? Understanding the inner workings of ML algorithms may distract from realizing benefits from good predictions. Explainability Explained With the rise of artificial intelligence has come skepticism. Mysteries of how AI works make questioning the “black box”

How are Supervised and Unsupervised Learning Different?

Showing the way vs. stumbling in the dark – there are applications for both. Supervised Supervised Learning shows AutoML algorithms sets of known outcomes from which to learn. Think of classroom drills, or giving a bloodhound the scent. Supervised learning

What Is A Confusion Matrix?

What Is A Confusion Matrix? The most aptly named AI term is actually simple. A Confusion Matrix is a table that shows how often an AI classifier gets confused predicting true and false conditions. Here is a simple example of
