  • Bayes Theorem

    Bayes’ theorem is a formula that governs how to assign a subjective degree of belief to a hypothesis and rationally update that probability with new evidence. Mathematically, it's the the likelihood of event B occurring given that A is true.

  • Active Learning

    Active learning is a form of semi-supervised machine learning where the algorithm chooses which data to learn from and queries a teacher for guidance.

  • Tensor

    A Tensor is a mathematical object similar to, but more general than, a vector and often represented by an array of components that describe functions relevant to coordinates of a space. Put simply, a Tensor is an array of numbers that transform according to certain rules under a change of coordinates.
