MIT Media Lab’da İlk 2 Haftam

Reading Time: 1 minute Boston Cambridge’de 2 haftayı devirdim, hem adapte olmak hem de bol bol çalışmakla geçen zevkli bir zamandı benim için. İşin en ilginç yanı, her geçen gün daha çok çalışmak gerektiğini hissetmek, ve kendini buna motive etmek… Ortam zaten bunu sağlıyor, Media Lab’ın mükemmel binası, laboratuvarları, araştırmacılarıyla içiçe olduğunuzda çalışmak sizin için bir hobi haline dönüşebiliyor. Bunu yazarken de Cuma günü akşam 21 olduğunu hatırlatmak isterim, Lab’da çok az kişi kaldı bu saatte, ama genelde burada olmasa bile insanlar, kütüphaneden Read more…

TensorBoard to visualize how NN models fit the data

Reading Time: 1 minute Tensorflow, the most widely used Deep Learning framework offering a playground on its website http://playground.tensorflow.com to quickly visualize how the parameters of a neural network impact the learning process. It is strongly recommended to spend 5-10 minutes, so you can quickly discover the underlying mechanisms of neural nets.

Useful Tips for Tensorflow Newbies

Reading Time: 2 minutes Tensorflow is one of the most widely used Deep Learning frameworks. In this post, I share some tips I had noted while learning, and it may be useful for you if you start from scratch. Placeholders Placeholder is used to assign a latent value during operations of the training phase. While defining a placeholder with a type of value, the types should be inherited from the package, i.e. Tensorflow.Float32 instead of the standard float data type. When it is Read more…

New Year Wishes

Reading Time: 1 minute 2018 was a year of change for me. Significant changes bring many difficulties, and yes, this was also the year of problems for me at the same time.

A Book Recommendation: “Look at You Now: My Journey from Shame to Strength”

A Useful Deep Learning Specialization Course: Structuring Machine Learning Projects

Reading Time: 1 minute I have been attending deeplearning.ai’s specialization courses for a while, and I’ve completed the second part of the series this week. In this course, Prof Andrew Ng shares his experiences and best practices to build efficient machine learning pipelines. Although there is not any programming assignment in the course syllabus, there are 2 case studies that are very close to real-world experiments, and it is expected to give the right decisions on these scenarios. I strongly recommend practicing this Read more…

An Article of Vigna and Kaplan about how Media bias impacts Elections

Reading Time: 2 minutes Link to the article THE FOX NEWS EFFECT: MEDIA BIAS AND VOTING* STEFANO DELLA VIGNA AND ETHAN KAPLAN Does media bias affect voting? We analyze the entry of Fox News in able markets and its impact on voting. Between October 1996 and November 2000, the conservative Fox News Channel was introduced in the cable programming of 20 percent of U. S. towns.
