- June 23, 2022

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 […]

- Vincent Granville
- June 19, 2022

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 […]

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 […]
