Computation Theory Part 1 - The Halting Problem

When you think about the most important fields of mathematics for a data scientist to know, you’ll almost certainly name calculus, probability/statistics, and linear algebra. These fields form the underpinnings of the most popular data analysis, signal processing and machine learning techniques. But in my experience, I’ve found that there... [Read More]

Musical TensorFlow, Part 1 - How to build an RBM in TensorFlow for making music

Generative models are awesome. TensorFlow is awesome. Music is awesome. In this post, we’re going to use TensorFlow to build a generative model that can create snippets of music. I’m going to assume that you have a pretty good understanding of neural networks and backpropagation and are at least a... [Read More]
