  • Machine learning certificate from coursera

    Hello everybody,

    I want to boast that I receved certificate from Standfor Univercity about my level of knowledge in Machine Learning.

    Here is the link:

  • Principal Component Analysis in Machine Learning

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to note important for me details of Machine Learning. 

    So, the first and very important usage of PCA is visualizing data. If you have 10 dimensions, can you visualize those data? If you can I'm happy about you, but I can't. I can imagine only 1, 2, 3 D :). But with principal componenet analysis it's possible to visualize data. 

    Second application is reducing memory/disk need to store data. That's quite self-explanatory, to train on 10 000 dimensions and 100 dimensions is different.

    Third is speeding up learning algorithm. It's actually related with second.

    Another important detail, it's bad idea to use PCA in order to avoid overfitting. Actually everybody … more

  • Debugging learning algorithm

    Few notes of how to debug machine learning algorithm:

    Get more training examples

    Try smaller sets of features

    Try getting additional features

    Try adding polinomial features

    Try increasing lambda

    Try decreasing lambda

    What those trys can achieve:

    fixes high variance

    fixes high variance

    fixes high bias

    fixes high bias

    fixes high bias

    fixes high variance
