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 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…

Good news.. I will be joining MIT Media Lab

Reading Time: 1 minute As of November, I have started my 2nd year of Ph.D. study at Politecnico Milano. By the way, there was an opportunity for the students to apply MIT for a research stay abroad, and even there were too many requirements to get an acceptance, I was lucky that I’ve been successful at all, and I’ve been awarded a Rocca fellowship for two semesters at MIT!

But after a few attempts, I’ve managed to leave all kinds of football-related activities, and now I have more time to discover things I’m Read more…

A Great Open-Source Visualizing Framework: RawGraphs.io

Reading Time: 1 minute The Density Design Research Lab of Politecnico Milano has created a wonderful library for providing interactive visualizations. My favorite graph among numerous kinds of graphs is probably the Alluvial graph, which ensures to track the changes in the defined categories. Its difference from the popular Sankey diagram is that in Alluvial graphs, you don’t have to link your data to a new category; instead, you may link the source category to the same category as well. In fact, it Read more…
