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 […]

Fast Classification and Clustering via Image Convolution Filters

Subtitled “Alternative to Generative Mixture Models”, the full version in PDF format is accessible in the “Free Books and Articles” section, here. I explain, with Python code and numerous illustrations, how to turn traditional tabular data into images, to perform both clustering and supervised classification using simple image filtering techniques. I also explain how to generalize the […]

Fuzzy Regression: A Generic, Model-free, Math-free Machine Learning Technique

Some people climb Mount Everest solo in winter, with no oxygen. Some mathematicians prove difficult theorems using only elementary arithmetic. The proof, despite labeled as “elementary” is typically far more complicated than those based on advanced mathematical theory. The people accomplishing these feasts are very rare. Introduction For years, I have developed machine learning techniques […]

Computer Vision: Shape Classification via Explainable AI

Update: The technical report on this topic is now available in the Resources section, here. Look for the title “Classification of Shapes via Explainable AI” under Free Books and Articles. A central problem in computer vision is to compare shapes and assess how similar they are. This is used for instance in text recognition. Modern […]

Very Deep Neural Networks Explained in 40 Seconds

Very deep neural networks (VDNN) illustrated with data animation: a 40 second video, featuring supervised learning, layers, neurons, fuzzy classification, and convolution filters. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Here instead, I use a video to illustrate the concept of very deep neural networks (VDNN). I use a supervised classification […]

New Book: Stochastic Processes and Simulations – A Machine Learning Perspective

New edition with Python code. Described as a “gem” or “masterpiece” by some readers. Buy the book here. Introduction This scratch course on stochastic processes covers significantly more material than usually found in traditional books or classes. The approach is original: I introduce a new yet intuitive type of random structure called perturbed lattice or […]
