7 Innovative Uses of Clustering Algorithms in the Real World

on 04 April Clustering algorithms are a powerful technique for machine learning on unsupervised data. The most common algorithms in machine learning are hierarchical clustering and K-Means clustering. These two algorithms are incredibly powerful when applied to different machine learning problems. Both k-means and hierarchical clustering have been applied to different scenarios to help gain new insights into the problem. Before…

Transfer Learning

Niklas Donges on Apr 23, 2018 Transfer Learning is the reuse of a pre-trained model on a new problem. It is currently very popular in the field of Deep Learning because it enables you to train Deep Neural Networks with comparatively little data. This is very useful since most real-world problems typically do not have…
