MACHINE LEARNING IS WAY EASIER THAN IT LOOKS

RYAN > Fun little article (albeit incomplete) that provides a glimpse of ML, and seeks to demystify ML by showing that the reader can get their head around the concepts - that it's a matter of familiarity with subject matter, rather than the need to have a giant brain ;) 

"CLUSTERING POSTS WITH K-MEANS

Now we have a mathematical representation of our blog posts — let’s try find clusters of similar posts. To do this we’re going to use a crazy simple clustering algorithm called K-Means, it can be described in 5 steps:

  1. Set ‘K’ to the number of clusters you want
  2. Choose ‘K’ random points
  3. Assign each document to its closest point
  4. Choose ‘K’ new points, from the ‘average’ of all documents assigned to each point
  5. Repeat steps 3-4. Until documents’ assignments stop changing."

Hi! I like to play with data, analytics and hack around with robots and gadgets in my garage. Lately I've been learning about machine learning.
