The Sound that Data Makes

It is common these days to read stories about the sound of black holes, deep space or the abyss. But what if you could turn your data into music? There are a few reasons one might want to do this. First, it adds extra dimensions, in top of those displayed in a scatter plot or […]

2nd Edition of My Book Now Published, with Python Code

The book covers supervised classification, including fractal classification, as well as unsupervised clustering, using an innovative approach. Datasets are first mapped onto an image, then processed using image filtering techniques. I discuss the analogy with neural networks, comparing very deep but sparse neural networks, with standard networks. Sponsors The free distribution of our content would […]
