Bayesian machine learning

/ /

From FastML: “So you know the Bayes rule. How does it relate to machine learning? It can be quite difficult to grasp how the puzzle pieces fit together – we know it took us a while. This article is an introduction we wish we had back then.” This article covers the following topics: Bayesians and Frequentists Priors, updates, and posteriors Inferring model parameters from data Model vs inference Statistical modelling … Continue Reading
