Implementing a decision tree using C5.0 algorithm in R
Decision tree learners are powerful classifiers that utilize a tree structure to model the relationships among the features and the potential outcomes. This structure earned its name due to the […] The post Implementing a decision tree using C5.0 algorithm in R appeared first on Datafloq.
Navigate the sea of data with a sail made of kernel
The concept of a kernel in machine learning might initially sound perplexing, but it’s a fundamental idea that underlies many powerful algorithms. There are mathematical theorems that support the working principle of all automation systems that make up a large part of our daily lives. Kernels in machine learning serve …

Opposing schools of thought imagine and build contrary futures for AI
While many people think of abstract ideas regarding artificial general intelligence (AGI), this technology has arrived at an important crossroads today. In fact, scientists stunned by its incredible potential agree to disagree on how the future of AGI should be shaped. Disagreements about the future of technologies, especially the ones
Open-source Twitter algorithm: What could go wrong?
There’s a controversy going on all over the internet regarding the Twitter algorithm. SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has ambitions toward making it open-source. What would be the advantages and disadvantages from a user perspective? Social media platforms are being heavily criticized for their content ranking algorithms. We discussed

An Intuitive Introduction to Reinforcement learning
Reinforcement learning (RL) is a trial and error form of learning in which an agent acting in a given environment learns to take optimal actions at every state it encounters in such an environment with the ultimate goal to increase/maximize a numerical reward function.
Understanding Inverse Document Frequency
TF-IDF is extensively used in search engines and in various document classification and clustering techniques. Instead of taking the formula by the word, we take a detour and dive deep into the better half of it and find its connection with Probability, the role it plays in document relevance and …
Isolation Forest algorithm for anomaly detection
Anomaly detection is an age-old problem and in this article, we dive deep into an unsupervised algorithm, Isolation Forest, that beautifully exploits the characteristics of anomalies. Instead of profiling normal points and labeling others as anomalies, the algorithm is actually is tuned to detect anomalies.
How To Understand the data science pipeline
The first step in the pipeline is to acquire the data from a variety of sources, including relational databases
This article describes various uses of kinetic Energy in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and why Natural Language Processing could be used in trading, with the potential to be use also in other...
