The Santander Bank Customer Transaction Prediction competition is a binary classification situation where […]

Psephology

In his podcast, Akimbo, Seth Godin teaches us how to adopt a posture of possibility, change the culture, and choose to make a difference. Here are my takeaways from the episode. Our current system of voting for decision-making has many flaws. Here are some thoughts on what those flaws are and what we can do […]

Kaggle Competition: Banco Santander Customer Transaction Prediction

If you are new to Python machine learning like me, you might find the current Kaggle competition “Santander Customer Transaction Prediction” interesting. The competition is essentially a binary classification problem with a decently large dataset (200 attributes and 200,000 rows of training data). I have not participated in Kaggle competition before and will use this […]

當你無法理解

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 當你獲得聲譽在做項目中有高效率的時候,這利害關係上升並不罕見。對於之後的項目看起來有感覺會更大,有更多的投入,有更多的決策,也有更多的陷阱。 這種感覺可能會令人興奮,但你也可能會開始掙扎。 以下兩個類似情況可能會幫助您瞭解實際發生的事情…… 一個情況很可能像在深水中游泳。問題是,如果你習慣在六英尺深的水中游泳,那麼六十英尺的深度實際上並沒有什麼不同。這不是更危險或更困難,只是感覺是這樣如此。向與兩萬人發表演講並不比給予一千人發表演講來困難個二十倍。 我們必需定期的提醒自己,這工作並沒有改變,這僅僅是關於所涉及利害關係的敘述。 另一方面,如果你習慣衝浪只六尺高,你卻發現自己在印度尼西亞群島的一個島上,那裡的海浪是二十五尺高,這也許是一個在海灘上坐一會兒觀望的好時機。 衝更大的波浪與衝小波浪不同,這會要需要付出更多努力。這是一次完全不同的互動,並不是全部衝浪的知識都在你腦海中。 去上一節課。去上五節課。給自己一個學習的空間。不需要一天內就從六尺跳到二十五尺。並且不要只是以為因為你已經弄清楚如何在二十五歲時生存,你就已經準備好了當五十歲來到。在大浪旁邊通常就是塊大珊瑚礁。 所以先從問題上開始:這是一個深水問題,還是一個大浪問題? 在網路上有充滿了深水的時刻,即使我們認為水太深,我們也可以直截了當地去學習,並且學會去茁壯成長。 我們職業上的生涯經常為我們提供大浪潮的機會。當你看到一個,不要馬上就躲開,但馬上為自己找一名教練來幫助我們學習。

Updated Machine Learning Templates v8 for R

As I work on practicing and solving machine learning (ML) problems, I find myself repeating a set of steps and activities repeatedly. Thanks to Dr. Jason Brownlee’s suggestions on creating a machine learning template, I have pulled together a set of project templates that can be used to support regression ML problems using R. Version […]
