Different people learn different things in different ways. Some people learn by listening to lectures and teachers, some by reading and self-study, and some by either doing or trying out things for themselves or in an apprenticeship sort of a setting.
Children mostly learn by either listening or doing things for themselves since their reading comprehension faculties would not have developed sufficiently. It is probably around the age of 12–13 when reading comprehension of most kids develops sufficiently to enable self-study. So kids who previously found it hard to listen and learn from their teachers in a classroom setting, begin…
Amazon.com swears by “Working Backwards” as a tenet. And it is a great tenet that has worked well for the company. The work culture is such that even all of its employees adhere to it as a principle.
Working at Amazon, I too got to learn the benefits of this principle. It is an excellent rule to follow for any consumer facing product/company like Amazon. You keep “Customer Obsession” or customer stories as your north star and “work backwards” from there; you let it guide you to indicate in which direction to move. …
I recently watched this talk by Zachary Lipton. The talk is two years old but still relevant, important and informative.
Here are few things that stuck out for me on this matter -
In many Machine Learning or Data Science workflows it is common to save and checkpoint several models and compare how they perform on a held-out validation dataset. These saved models could be -
In this post I will share few of my thoughts on explainability in AI/ML.
These situations ought to explain why explainability in AI is important.
With the latest Apache MXNet 1.2 release, MXNet users can now use a built-in API to import ONNX models into MXNet. With this new functionality, developers can import models created with other neural network frameworks into MXNet and use it for inference or to fine-tune the model.
Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) is an open source serialization format to encode deep learning models. ONNX defines the format for the neural network computational graph and an extensive list of operators often used in neural network architectures…
