The Chicken or the Beef? Why Everyone Loves Neural Networks (Part III, Improving the Output)

In the previous article, we looked at how to construct a very simple artificial neural network to model our chicken-or-beef meal decision. However, this is overly simplistic for most 'real-world' problems. In this final article, we'll look at how to extend this basic network, and how to deal with that ever-present bugbear in machine learning: over-fitting.

The Chicken or the Beef? Why Everyone Loves Neural Networks, Part II (Using Keras and TensorFlow)

The important objective functions for ANNs are referred to as cost or loss functions. These functional measures of error are the important metrics with which we determine the success of our algorithm. The goal of machine learning algorithms is to optimize such a function.

The Chicken or the Beef? Why Everyone Loves Neural Networks

Here we try to give a simple illustration of what the fuss is all about, and even show you how to cast your own Artificial Neural Network spells — using the popular Python programming language along the way.

Pandas-monium: Analyzing Data with the Python Pandas Package (Part 1 of 2)

Tired of your fellow humans being probed by aliens? It’s time to probe back! Well, at least, probe the data on UFO sightings. To do this, we’ll show-case one of the most popular open source tools for analyzing data: the pandas package.

How big is the "Big" in Big Data?

Most working definitions of Big Data do not have an explicit reference to the size of the data set. This is because the associated conceptual, software, and hardware shifts derive from several important factors aside from actual size of the data.

Fraud Detection using Python

We can apply machine learning to help detect credit card fraud, but there is a bit of a problem in that the vast majority of transactions are perfectly legitimate, which reduces a typical model’s sensitivity to fraud.
