Getting Familiar with Activation Function and Its Types.

Reading Time: 7 minutes Hey Folks, In this blog we are going to discuss activation function in Artificial Neural Networks and their different types. Before going there, let’s get some idea about what is an artificial neural network? Artificial Neural Network(i.e., ANN) Artificial Neural Network refers to a biologically inspired sub-field of Artificial Intelligence modeled after the brain. ANN is a computational network based on a biological neural network Continue Reading

MachineX: Genetic Algorithm

Reading Time: 2 minutes Genetic algorithm is based on the Charles Darwin famous principle of survival of the fittest, where the fittest of the individuals are given higher importance and are chosen for reproduction in order to produce children for the new generation. The process starts by selecting the fittest individuals from a population, who then produce offspring which inherit the characteristics of the parents. Since the parents already Continue Reading

Introduction to Machine Learning

Reading Time: 2 minutes Before jumping directly into what is Machine Learning lets starts with the meaning of individual words i.e. What is Machine and What is Learning. A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that transform energy. Machines are usually powered by chemical, thermal, or electrical means, and are often motorized. Learning is the ability to improve behaviour based on Experience. What is Machine Learning? Continue Reading
