Sensitivity Analysis of Dataset Size vs. Model Performance

Sensitivity Analysis of Dataset Size vs. Model Performance
Machine learning model performance often improves with dataset size for predictive modeling. This depends on the specific datasets and on the choice of model, although it often means that using more data can result in better performance and that discoveries made using smaller datasets to estimate model performance often scale to using larger datasets.

Simulated Annealing From Scratch in Python

Simulated Annealing From Scratch in Python
Simulated Annealing is a stochastic global search optimization algorithm. This means that it makes use of randomness as part of the search process. This makes the algorithm appropriate for nonlinear objective functions where other local search algorithms do not operate well. Like the stochastic hill climbing local search algorithm, it modifies a single solution and […]

No Free Lunch Theorem for Machine Learning

The No Free Lunch Theorem is often thrown around in the field of optimization and machine learning, often with little understanding of what it means or implies. The theorem states that all optimization algorithms perform equally well when their performance is averaged across all possible problems. It implies that there is no single best optimization

A Gentle Introduction to Stochastic Optimization Algorithms

Stochastic optimization refers to the use of randomness in the objective function or in the optimization algorithm. Challenging optimization algorithms, such as high-dimensional nonlinear objective problems, may contain multiple local optima in which deterministic optimization algorithms may get stuck. Stochastic optimization algorithms provide an alternative approach that permits less optimal local decisions to be made
