Naive Bayes is a machine learning algorithm for classification problems. It is based on Bayes’ probability theorem. It is primarily used for text classification which involves high dimensional training data sets. A few examples are spam filtration, sentimental analysis, and classifying news articles. It is not only known for its simplicity, but also for its […]

Introduction Deep Learning isn't a recent discovery. The seeds were sown back in the 1950s when the first artificial neural network was created. Since then, progress has been rapid, with the structure of the neuron being "re-invented" artificially. Computers and mobiles have now become powerful enough to identify objects from images. Not just images, they can […]

Introduction Clustering algorithms are a part of unsupervised machine learning algorithms. Why unsupervised ? Because, the target variable is not present. The model is trained based on given input variables which attempt to discover intrinsic groups (or clusters). As the target variable is not present, we can't label those groups. Then, how is it done? That's the interesting part […]
