Machine Learning Algorithm Series: k-Nearest Neighbors

As you may recall from the previous posts in the Machine Learning Algorithm Series, when performing Linear Regression and Logistic Regression there is always an assumption of the linearity of the underlying or transformed data. Needless to say, most real world data sets don’t comply with this assumption, so non-parametric algorithms are necessary for accurately modeling non-linear data. In the third installment of our Machine Learning Series, we talk about k-Nearest Neighbors (kNN), amongst the simplest and most popular non-parametric methods used for data classification and regression.

Machine Learning Algorithm Series: Logistic Regression

This post is the second in our series on machine learning (ML) algorithms, focusing on the assumptions, implications, and applications of various techniques. Following the first installment on linear regression, we’ll be discussing a subset of general linear models known as the logistic regression (also referred to as logit regression or a logit model).

Machine Learning Algorithm Series: Linear Regression

This post is the first in our series on machine learning (ML) algorithms. (See posts 2 and 3 on Logistic Regression and k-Nearest Neighbors.) In these posts, we explain the basic underlying concepts behind various algorithms, their pros and cons, and their most common applications. We are starting this discussion with the oldest ML algorithm, linear regression. It is an excellent starting point for learning about ML because many of the basic concepts involved are easy to explain in this context and because it is relatively easy to implement your very own linear regression algorithm.

“Beware the Hype!” And 4 Other Lessons in Machine Learning

In case you missed it, Knowledgent’s Data Scientist Dr. Mitchell Shuster recently served as a panelist on a round table webinar. Titled “The Business Potential of Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing,” the webinar featured expert insights on the next phase of machine learning, including deep learning, analytics, and cognitive computing.

“Machine learning and cognitive computing are becoming a critical portion of our technology infrastructure,” said Mitchell. “As with the rise of the Internet and social media, businesses that embrace these technologies will reap tremendous rewards and gain significant competitive advantage over those who fail to adapt to the changing landscape.”

Here are our major takeaways from the webinar: Continue reading “Beware the Hype!” And 4 Other Lessons in Machine Learning
