If not, here’s what language models are and why they are useful. What is a model? Generally speaking, a model (in the statistical sense of course) is a […]

That’s why resources are so scarce or cost a lot of money. In this post, I’m going to aggregate some cool […]

The thing is, I did machine learning and natural language processing for a long time before putting the concepts in order inside my own mind. I’ve learned techniques and hacks to boost precision of classifiers before fully understanding how a classifier computes […]
