An alternative method for calculating a latent model relies on a mathematical miracle worker called the
Singular Valued Decomposition (SVD) - what is this? Let's look at a graphical explanation. Here's what you get if you try and find the main parts of the “Lena” image (a famous image ...
I'm fortunate to have two papers accepted (I'm only presenting one)
for the Uncoventional Computing Conference in London, Ontario .
Here's is a preprint of the article on
unconventional method for artihmetic operations based on action potential timings.
Establish the Need - what is the actual value generated by the work?
This stuff only works if you have some measurable outcome for the
business. This helps with the often difficult sell to upper managament!
Produce an "ideal" solution - Dream a little - how would it work if ...
Feature Hashing is a
useful technique for dealing with sparse or "bag-of-words" type
data-sets. The essential idea is to hash the features into a new
feature space of a prespecified vector size. The algorithm employs
hashing on two levels - the first is the hashing to the hash-space
index, the second ...
