Data science and machine learning are scientific disciplines that are ruled by programming and mathematics. Nowadays, most corporations globally generate immense amounts of data that can be further analyzed and visualized by experts to understand trends and forecast predictions. For instance, we can only perform accurate data visualization if our data is clear and understandable.

However, organizations’ data is (frequently) too messy to tinker with — therefore, finding structures and important patterns in data is a crucial task for data science. Statistics provides the methods and tools to find…

Diving into genuine state-of-the-art automation of the data labeling workflow on large unstructured datasets

Author(s): Roberto Iriondo

Data labeling is an essential part of the machine learning workflow, particularly data preprocessing, where both input and output data are labeled for classification to present a learning base for planned data processing.

We use data labeling to identify raw data, such as objects in images, videos, text, and so on. It works by affixing one or more significant and informative labels to produce context so that a model can learn from it [2]. …

Applied natural language processing (Applied NLP) is becoming a very hot topic in the machine learning community, and for good reasons. It has emerged as an essential subdiscipline in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), and the main reason can be summed up in one sentence: We are drowning in unstructured data — texts, documents, articles, blog posts, emails, and more — and most of them are written in natural language. NLP’s objective is to build computer systems that can understand and derive meaning from human language…

Game theory is a mathematical method modeled after the mechanics of game balancing and structure. It’s used to create interactions between multiple parties to help them achieve optimal results without extreme compromises or deviations from normality. It helped Google create an AI that learned how to master Starcraft II in just four hours, and its understanding of risk, strategy, and other critical variables makes it an invaluable tool when teaching AI systems to be flexible and adaptable thinkers. …

These are some of the most common challenges in machine learning (ML) with straightforward solutions on how to tackle them

Author(s): Saniya Parveez

Machine learning (ML) is the process of building models that learn from data. It has a diverse set of algorithms that are brought to life with data. However, a traditional classical ML approach can also solve problems with a minimal set of variables by using explicit rules. But, the trick is that it gets complicated when the number of variables increases. Regardless of how they are represented visually, machine learning models are mathematical functions and can consequently be implemented from scratch using numerical software frameworks and packages [1].
