A Tutorial on Linear Algebra and Geometry ( Part 2)

 Author: Paolo Caressa   Points, vectors and their algebra So far we dealt with points as identified with pairs (or triples for space) of real numbers: as far as Machine Learning is concerned, we are interested infinite sets of points, which represent particular objects to classify or phenomena to correlate as points in a Cartesian […]

A Tutorial on Linear Algebra and Geometry ( Part 1)

 Author: Paolo Caressa   Foreword     In machine learning and deep learning, as in any other interdisciplinary area, concepts and formalisms coming from different sources and fields are used, and often they require different mindsets to be actually understood and properly managed. For this reason, one says usually that a data scientist should be […]
