Improving PewDiePie’s camera quality with Autoencoders

Let’s take a look at how we can use Deep Learning for Image Super-Resolution with Autoencoders. Comparison of the 480p input (left) to an Autoencoder trained for the task of image super-resolution, with it’s higher quality output at the same resolution (right). Recently, I have been reading about various image … Read moreImproving PewDiePie’s camera quality with Autoencoders

Why Norms Matters — Machine Learning

Play with norms: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/wznruz7mxs Evaluation is a crucial step in all modeling and machine learning problems. Since we are often making predictions on entire datasets, providing a single number that summarizes the performance of our model is both simple and effective. There are a number of situations where we need … Read moreWhy Norms Matters — Machine Learning

The Actual Difference Between Statistics and Machine Learning

Statistical Models vs Machine learning — Linear Regression Example It seems to me that the similarity of methods that are used in statistical modeling and in machine learning has caused people to assume that they are the same thing. This is understandable, but simply not true. The most obvious example is the … Read moreThe Actual Difference Between Statistics and Machine Learning

De-Googling Bach: Counterpointing Bach’s Rules of the Road With American Populist Music

Counterpointing Bach’s Rules of the Road With American Populist Music “Thnking Outside the Bachs” by Max Harper Ellert I had fun this week playing with the Google Doodle to create Bach harmonies from simple melodies. Looking through some of the articles about the process of melding A.I. and the principles of counterpoint … Read moreDe-Googling Bach: Counterpointing Bach’s Rules of the Road With American Populist Music

Corners in Images and Angular Representation of Their Relationships

Corner detection has been an important subject in image processing. It is essential and important, because it helps us find the unique features in images. There are several methods for detecting corners in images. The most famous one, that I assume, is Harris Corner Detection. After I read about it … Read moreCorners in Images and Angular Representation of Their Relationships

How to build an Autonomous Sailboat Using Machine Learning

We teach machine learning in quite an onorthodox fashion: by letting participants turn a real sailing yacht into a sail racing robot. In this blog post we will take apart this challenge and focus on the first sub-task: using machine learning to find the optimal course to steer in a sailing … Read moreHow to build an Autonomous Sailboat Using Machine Learning
