You may download The book in one file (640 pages): Notes: Recommending music on Spotify with deep learning – Sander Dieleman This summer, I’m interning at Spotify in New York City, where I’m working on content-based music recommendation using convolutional neural networks. In this post, I’ll explain my approach and show some preliminary results. Overview This is going to be a long post, so here’s an overview of the different sections.

Hacker's guide to Neural Networks Hi there, I’m a CS PhD student at Stanford. I’ve worked on Deep Learning for a few years as part of my research and among several of my related pet projects is ConvNetJS - a Javascript library for training Neural Networks. Javascript allows one to nicely visualize what’s going on and to play around with the various hyperparameter settings, but I still regularly hear from people who ask for a more thorough treatment of the topic. This article (which I plan to slowly expand out to lengths of a few book chapters) is my humble attempt. It’s on web instead of PDF because all books should be, and eventually it will hopefully include animations/demos etc. My personal experience with Neural Networks is that everything became much clearer when I started ignoring full-page, dense derivations of backpropagation equations and just started writing code.

Jupyter Notebook Viewer Probabilistic Programming & Bayesian Methods for Hackers¶ Using Python and PyMC¶ The Bayesian method is the natural approach to inference, yet it is hidden from readers behind chapters of slow, mathematical analysis. The typical text on Bayesian inference involves two to three chapters on probability theory, then enters what Bayesian inference is. Unfortunately, due to mathematical intractability of most Bayesian models, the reader is only shown simple, artificial examples. This can leave the user with a so-what feeling about Bayesian inference. UFLDL Tutorial - Ufldl From Ufldl Description: This tutorial will teach you the main ideas of Unsupervised Feature Learning and Deep Learning. By working through it, you will also get to implement several feature learning/deep learning algorithms, get to see them work for yourself, and learn how to apply/adapt these ideas to new problems.

Introduction to Statistical Learning An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani This book provides an introduction to statistical learning methods. Java Machine Learning Are you a Java programmer and looking to get started or practice machine learning? Writing programs that make use of machine learning is the best way to learn machine learning. You can write the algorithms yourself from scratch, but you can make a lot more progress if you leverage an existing open source library.

13 Free Self-Study Books on Mathematics, Machine Learning & Deep Learning Introduction Getting learners to read textbooks and use other teaching aids effectively can be tricky. Especially, when the books are just too dreary. In this post, we’ve compiled great e-resources for you digital natives looking to explore the exciting world of Machine Learning and Neural Networks. But before you dive into the deep end, you need to make sure you’ve got the fundamentals down pat.

IPython Notebooks for StatLearning Exercises Earlier this year, I attended the StatLearning: Statistical Learning course, a free online course taught by Stanford University professors Trevor Hastie and Rob Tibshirani. They are also the authors of The Elements of Statistical Learning (ESL) and co-authors of its less math-heavy sibling: An Introduction to Statistical Learning (ISL). The course was based on the ISL book. Each week's videos were accompanied by some hands-on exercises in R. I personally find it easier to work with Python than R.

Data Visualization for All · GitBook Tell your story with free and easy-to-learn tools. Data Visualization for All, an open-access textbook, shows how to design interactive charts and maps for your website. We begin with drag-and-drop tools and gradually work our way up to editing open-source code templates. This friendly introduction includes step-by-step tutorials, video screencasts, and real-world examples. Featured tools include Google Sheets, Tableau Public, Carto, Highcharts, Leaflet, GitHub, and more. About the authors: Jack Dougherty (Trinity College, CT) with Veronica X.

Infinite Mixture Models with Nonparametric Bayes and the Dirichlet Process Imagine you’re a budding chef. A data-curious one, of course, so you start by taking a set of foods (pizza, salad, spaghetti, etc.) and ask 10 friends how much of each they ate in the past day. Your goal: to find natural groups of foodies, so that you can better cater to each cluster’s tastes.

19 Free eBooks to learn programming with Python. – Mybridge for Professionals This is a collection of the most useful free ebooks to learn programming for both beginners and advanced Python users. Python is a popular programming language used for a variety purposes from web development and software automation to machine learning. In this observation, we compared nearly 500 ebooks related to Python programming language and sized the number down to 19. Spammy content that try to lure you with ads, time-wasting content and old content are not included. To evaluate the quality, Mybridge AI considered a variety of factors to determine how useful the content are for programmers. Principal Component Analysis step by step In this article I want to explain how a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) works by implementing it in Python step by step. At the end we will compare the results to the more convenient Python PCA()classes that are available through the popular matplotlib and scipy libraries and discuss how they differ. The main purposes of a principal component analysis are the analysis of data to identify patterns and finding patterns to reduce the dimensions of the dataset with minimal loss of information. Here, our desired outcome of the principal component analysis is to project a feature space (our dataset consisting of n x d-dimensional samples) onto a smaller subspace that represents our data "well".
