Effortless NLP with spaCy
I've loved spaCy for a long time but I've only just got my head around how you can structure a text processing pipeline to take full advantage of its power.
The Neocortex & Power Iteration
A look at how the power iteration method for computing eigenvectors may allow brains to extract variance from the world.
Swift Taylor Approximations
This post continues my explorations of simple intelligence. In this post, we'll consider some elementary sensing cells. We'll then look at whether we can apply local function approximators. Sensors Consider a set of sensing cells, which we'll call "sensors". We have N sensors, where each sensor measures a value over time. This value could be … Continue reading Swift Taylor Approximations
