Difference Between Batch, Mini-Batch and Stochastic Gradient Descent

Gradient Descent is one the key algorithm used in Machine Learning. While training machine learning model, we require an algorithm to minimize the value of loss function. Gradient Descent is one of the optimization algorithm , that is used to minimize the loss. There are mainly three types of Gradient Descent algorithm1. Batch Gradient DescentBatch … Continue reading Difference Between Batch, Mini-Batch and Stochastic Gradient Descent

Decision Tree Classification in Python in 10 lines

Decision tree machine learning algorithm can be used to solve not only regression but also classification problems. This algorithm creates a tree like conditional control statements to create its model hence it is named as decision tree. In this post we will be implementing a simple decision tree classification model using python and sklearn. First … Continue reading Decision Tree Classification in Python in 10 lines

Print ROC AUC Receiver Operating Characteristic Area Under Curve

The receiver operating characteristic area under curve is a way to measure the performance of a classification model, may be created using algorithms like Logistic Regression. ROC-AUC is basically a graph where we plot true positive rate on y-axis and false positive rate on x-axis. If a model is good the AUC will be close to 1. Area … Continue reading Print ROC AUC Receiver Operating Characteristic Area Under Curve

Difference between Logistic Regression and Support Vector Machine SVM

Both Logistic Regression and Support Vector Machine or SVM can be used for classification however there is some fundamental difference between them. Lets understand those differences when we are using Support Vector Machine as a classifier. Logistic Regression gives probabilities as output that can be interpreted as confidence in the classification decision however Support Vector … Continue reading Difference between Logistic Regression and Support Vector Machine SVM
