useR-machine-learning-tutorial - useR! 2016 Tutorial: Machine Learning Algorithmic Deep Dive http://user2016

  •    Jupyter

Instructions for how to install the necessary software for this tutorial is available here. Data for the tutorial can be downloaded by running ./data/ (requires wget). Certain algorithms don't scale well when there are millions of features. For example, decision trees require computing some sort of metric (to determine the splits) on all the feature values (or some fraction of the values as in Random Forest and Stochastic GBM). Therefore, computation time is linear in the number of features. Other algorithms, such as GLM, scale much better to high-dimensional (n << p) and wide data with appropriate regularization (e.g. Lasso, Elastic Net, Ridge).

benchm-ml - A minimal benchmark for scalability, speed and accuracy of commonly used open source implementations (R packages, Python scikit-learn, H2O, xgboost, Spark MLlib etc

  •    R

This project aims at a minimal benchmark for scalability, speed and accuracy of commonly used implementations of a few machine learning algorithms. The target of this study is binary classification with numeric and categorical inputs (of limited cardinality i.e. not very sparse) and no missing data, perhaps the most common problem in business applications (e.g. credit scoring, fraud detection or churn prediction). If the input matrix is of n x p, n is varied as 10K, 100K, 1M, 10M, while p is ~1K (after expanding the categoricals into dummy variables/one-hot encoding). This particular type of data structure/size (the largest) stems from this author's interest in some particular business applications. Note: While a large part of this benchmark was done in Spring 2015 reflecting the state of ML implementations at that time, this repo is being updated if I see significant changes in implementations or new implementations have become widely available (e.g. lightgbm). Also, please find a summary of the progress and learnings from this benchmark at the end of this repo.

grokking-pytorch - The Hitchiker's Guide to PyTorch


PyTorch is a flexible deep learning framework that allows automatic differentiation through dynamic neural networks (i.e., networks that utilise dynamic control flow like if statements and while loops). It supports GPU acceleration, distributed training, various optimisations, and plenty more neat features. These are some notes on how I think about using PyTorch, and don't encompass all parts of the library or every best practice, but may be helpful to others. Neural networks are a subclass of computation graphs. Computation graphs receive input data, and data is routed to and possibly transformed by nodes which perform processing on the data. In deep learning, the neurons (nodes) in neural networks typically transform data with parameters and differentiable functions, such that the parameters can be optimised to minimise a loss via gradient descent. More broadly, the functions can be stochastic, and the structure of the graph can be dynamic. So while neural networks may be a good fit for dataflow programming, PyTorch's API has instead centred around imperative programming, which is a more common way for thinking about programs. This makes it easier to read code and reason about complex programs, without necessarily sacrificing much performance; PyTorch is actually pretty fast, with plenty of optimisations that you can safely forget about as an end user (but you can dig in if you really want to).
