The 5th Tribe, Support Vector Machines and caret

by Joseph Rickert In his new book, The Master Algorithm, Pedro Domingos takes on the heroic task of explaining machine learning to a wide audience and classifies machine learning practitioners into 5 tribes*, each with its own fundamental approach to learning problems. To the 5th tribe, the analogizers, Pedro ascribes the Support Vector Machine (SVM) as it's master algorithm....

Convergence and Asymptotic Results

Last week, in our mathematical statistics course, we’ve seen the law of large numbers (that was proven in the probability course), claiming that given a collection  of i.i.d. random variables, with To visualize that convergence, we can use > m=100 > mean_samples=function(n=10){ + X=matrix(rnorm(n*m),nrow=m,ncol=n) + return(apply(X,1,mean)) + } > B=matrix(NA,100,20) > for(i in 1:20){ + B=mean_samples(i*10) + } > colnames(B)=as.character(seq(10,200,by=10)) > boxplot(B) It is...

Fitting a neural network in R; neuralnet package

Neural networks have always been one of the most fascinating machine learning model in my opinion, not only because of the fancy backpropagation algorithm, but also because of their complexity (think of deep learning with many hidden layers) and structure inspired by the brain. Neural networks have not always been popular, partly because they were,

Predicting creditability using logistic regression in R: cross validating the classifier (part 2)

Now that we fitted the classifier and run some preliminary tests, in order to get a grasp at how our model is doing when predicting creditability we need to run some cross validation methods.Cross validation is a model evaluation method that does not use conventional fitting measures (such as R^2 of linear regression) when trying to evaluate the model....
