Musings from my development journey.Topics
Talk on machine learning by Ju at Rails Conf 2017.
I really enjoyed Ju's approach to approaching machine learning. Instead of jumping straight to the algorithm calls, he showed how to build a basic statistical analysis program, and then afterwards showed how machine learning algorithms can automate the process.
matplotlib.pyplot(can help with visualizations, plotting, normalization, etc)
Follow a logical progression for working with the data set. Follow the data flow to analyze the parameters and see how they can reveal patterns in the knowledge set.
In order to build a heuristic, the full set of relevant parameters need to be
learned by the data set to ensure that causality is the goal of the learner and not merely association.
