The study was conducted over twenty years and included 1314 … Continue reading The curious case of Simpson’s Paradox

Demystifying Neural Networks: A Mathematical Approach (Part 1)

My notes from the book ‘Make your own Neural Network’ by Tariq Rashid. “Take inspiration from all the small things around you.”- Tariq Rashid There are some tasks which are very simple for computers but hard for humans, like multiplying millions and trillions of numbers, i.e. repetitive tasks. On the other hand, humans outperform computers fairly … Continue reading Demystifying Neural Networks: A Mathematical Approach (Part 1)
