How Is Python Different Than Any Other Programming Languages?

Among many of the programming languages available today, Python is one such option that is high in demand by now. The increasing demand for the language is because it is entirely different than many other programming languages available in the market. One such difference or rather benefit is that Python is quite easy to understand and also quite simple to learning too. Do you want to learn Python from scratch? Then Intellipaat ‘Python Course’ is for you. Typically, the selection of a proper programming language depends on many factors such as training, availability, cost, emotional attachment, and also prior investments. But these factors are also variable, and hence there are other factors also on which the selection of the right programming language highly depends. Some of the programming languages that are available in the market now are Java, PHP, C++, Perl, Ruby, Javascript, TCL, Smalltalk, and many others. Python is…

Scale up Big Data mining with Hadoop machine learning tools

Each human or organization doing various activities are constantly generating massive amounts of data. In real life when you visit supermarkets, doctors, institutions, log into a bank account, visit webpages, spend time in social networks, buy online – you leave a footprint of data. The data of your past carries lots of interesting information about your human habits, interests, behavior patterns. If we scale up to organizations, where every process and decision play a significant role in business success, data becomes a valuable asset. Collected and properly mined historical data may help to make critical decisions for the future, optimize the structure and even see the trends where the business is heading. Hadoop machine learning tools Big Data is everywhere and, so storing analyzing it becomes a challenge. No human can handle and effectively analyze vast amounts of data. This is where machine learning and distributed storage comes in handy.…

Modern betting depends on machine learning tools

Machine learning (ML) algorithms are becoming a standard way of improving decisions, whether this is a finance, health or gaming sector. Sports betting is one of those areas where ML technologies are becoming a standard decision support tools. The betting market is a massive industry, and simple means like statistics do not work anymore. Betting operators are focusing on machine learning-based methods to increase the expected return on investment. It is necessary to make accurate in-house predictions of sports events because all business mode success depends on this. It is essential for a betting operator to increase its accuracy in sports prediction to be an attractive company and be profitable. Professional betters, also are using machine learning algorithms to formulate strategies for accurate prediction. Using an ML is a two-way game, which depends on how well big data processing algorithms work on each side. To make a good prediction, this…

[Machine Learning] Transforming the World and Everyday Life

Experimenting with machines and making them more human is what the technical advancements all about, where the collaborative efforts of both man and machines are deriving results beyond expectations. Next, to the invention of Microchip, Artificial Intelligence(AI) and Machine Learning(ML) are considered to be the biggest innovation of technology. From a fanciful concept of science fiction, AI is now the reality of this digital world. With AI came ML and imitating the real neurons, Deep Learning brings the study of neural networks, giving machine learning a great breakthrough. It’s the era of digital revolutions where the focus is merely to harness mental and cognitive abilities. And the day is not far when automated devices and programs will not only replace ‘manual labor’ but also the ‘mental labor’ which only a human performs today. People looking at such advancements raise their brows in surprise and imagine how these technologies work and…

Tools You Should Learn to Become an AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) Master

Some sixty years ago, artificial intelligence was just a concept that research scientists had in mind. But ever since the idea of super-computers-capable-of-thinking-like-humans has been floated, it has occupied a particular part in the public consciousness. Over recent years, we have seen tremendous growth and rapid evolution of artificial intelligence. Today, there is a vast amount of high-quality open source libraries and software tools available to AI and ML experts. Every day, new ideas and concepts on AI are being discovered, as well as new applications of AI are being explored. We see how AI is slowly being used in business and our everyday lives. According to Ottawa IT services experts from Firewall Technical, AI technology will continue to be a significant force in many IT solutions in the next few years. Many tech experts agree that AI has a very bright future ahead and some even predict the drastic…

Feature extraction from retina vascular images for classification

Classifying medical images is a tedious and complex task. Using machine learning algorithms to assist the process could be a huge help. There are many challenges to make machine learning algorithms work reliably on image data. First of all, you need a rather large image database with ground truth information (expert’s labeled data with diagnosis information). The second problem is preprocessing images, including merging modalities, unifying color maps, normalizing and filtering. This part is important and may impact the last part – feature extraction. This step is crucial because on how well you can extract informative features, depends on how well machine learning algorithms will work. Dataset To demonstrate the classification procedure of medical images the ophthalmology STARE (STructured Analysis of the Retina) image database was pulled from https://cecas.clemson.edu/~ahoover/stare/. The database consists of 400 images with 13 diagnostic cases along with preprocessed images. For classification problem we have chosen only…

Running remote host Weka experiments

Previously we have tried to run weka server to utilize all cores of the processor in classification tasks. But it appears that weka server works only in explorer for classification routines. For more advanced machine learning there is a more flexible tool – experimenter. Weka server doesn’s support this area. So what to do if you want more performance or utilize multi-core processor of the local machine. There is a way out, but it is quite tricky. Weka has the ability to perform remote experiments that allow spreading the load across multiple host machines that have Weka set up. You can read the documentation of remote experiment on Weka wikispaces, but in some cases, it may be somewhat confusing. It took time for me to figure out some parts by trial and error. The trickiest part is to set everything up and prepare the necessary command to be run before…
