Basics Of Neural Nets

Leila Etaati has a new series on neural nets in R:

in Neural Network, we have some hidden Nodes that do the main job ! they found the best value for the output, they are using some function that we call that functions as “Activation function” for instance in below picture, Node C is a hidden node that take the values from node A and B. as you can see the weight (the better path) related to Node B as shown in tick line that means Node B may lead to get better results so Node C get input values from Node B not Node A.

If you have time, also check out the linked YouTube videos.

In Random Forests the idea is to decorrelate the several trees which are generated on the different bootstrapped samples from training Data.And […]

Using seplyr Instead Of dplyr

John Mount explains seplyr and why it can be better for certain use cases than dplyr: seplyr is a dplyr adapter layer that prefers “slightly clunkier” standard interfaces (or referentially transparent interfaces), which are actually very powerful and can be used to some advantage. The above description and comparisons can come off as needlessly broad and painfully abstract. Things are […]
