The Machine Learning Blog
I am a biologist and from my precarious corner of knowledge, but thanks to the close relationship with professionals from multiple disciplines, mostly linked to the Neuroscience Institute of the Universidad del Bosque, I have entered into the fascinating adventure of understanding the basics of Artificial Intelligence.
How to train a Machine to recognize handwritten numbers in a picture (or anything else for that matter)
Recognizing hand written numbers
In this post, I will explain how to use Machine Learning to build a piece of software that is able to recognize handwritten numbers. I will also explain what other applications this could have for you and your business. This being said, I will not go into implementation details, nor into the mathematics of how this works, the post will just explain the general idea behind this principle.
Neural Networks are at the core of Artificial Intelligence. They are used by organisations around the world to innovate, automate tasks and to become more competitive. In this article I will explain in plain terms and without any mathematics or technical terms what they are and how you can use them to innovate in your domain.
