Can anyone help me explain what is Machine Learning? I have been googling for the subject and still do not understand what it is. Please help. 1) How could a Machine learn about information? By finding an equation of a pattern? or by having the user inputing a new information about the subject that the machine do not understand? 2) Please gives me a concrete example of Machine Learning. Thanks in advance.

So I am trying to make this code run in a constant loop. Any ideas how I would do this? As I said before I am trying to self teach myself Python and so far I have been successful. import os import datetime import time print('What would you like to do?') answer = raw_input() today = datetime.date.today() if answer == 'shutdown': print('This works') elif answer == 'restart': print('This also does work') elif answer == 'restart': print('This also works fine') elif answer == 'date': print today elif answer == 'time': print (time.strftime("%H:%M:%S")) else: print('Did not recognize that request, sorry.')

All, I am wanting to be able to "read" hand writing. I have managed to get the hand written characters from papers. I now - to the computer - have just pixels on paper (output is in .pdf format). I want to have the computer be able to convert the pixels into letters and numbers, then into words that can be read/analyzed by the computer. My thoughts are to see if there is open source for hand writing character recognition that I can use as a start. I also read that I would need a large data set of charaters. …

Respected members, I have this code chunk that should read multiple text files from a folder. I am later calculating their probability. For one file it is working fine and methods are also showing output. The first code is for ONE FILE named as English.txt. BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("D:\\MsThesis\\from csv files to text files\\English.txt")); String line; try { while((line = reader.readLine()) != null) { try { detector.append(reader); //reader object instance } catch (IOException e) { // TODO Auto-generated catch block e.printStackTrace(); } } } catch (IOException e) { // TODO Auto-generated catch block e.printStackTrace(); } try { reader.close(); …

I've been learning a lot about machine learning (mostly clustering and regressions), but when I've looked into programming libraries/environments, I've found "production ready" ones to be few and far between. What I mean by "production ready" is that it could be incorperated into a product, not just used a tool to fool around with in order to find some relationships. For instants, Pandora is probably a good example of a company that uses some algorithm (I would guess logistical regression, but I don't really know) to compute values from code. In Java, things like Weka and RapidMiner seem to include …

Hello community. I'm 16 years old, a 10th grade student. My question is: How to learn programming? By that I don't mean that i want to learn a programming language. I am familiar with Python and C/C++(a bit) syntax. I want to know how to get experience, how to evolve, how to improve my mind. Maybe there's something you could offer me?

I am trying to learn SQL programming in my spare time, but I'm running into some issues. I currently have Visual Basic Studio 2010 installed, as well as Microsoft SQL Server 2008/2012. I've been told that I should be using MySQL to practice the coding. Should I lean towards MySQL in order to learn the language? (I am currently installing MySQL Workbench as we speak)....

Hello, I only have a basic knowledge of ASM because every tutorial I have found (including Narue's) is based on using some kind of high level library or another. However when I look through disassemblies of pretty much any program I notice that all such library calls are gone. My questions are: A) Did the assembler simply copy-paste the library code in (like a header file in c/c++) B) Where can I learn general assembly? C) I noticed that pretty much every tutorial uses different layout (IE: data:code: vs section data, etc) what are these and how can I know …

I have been working on a Python coded priority email inbox, with the ultimate aim of using a machine learning algorithm to label (or classify) a selection of emails as either important or un-important. I will begin with some background information and then move into my question. I have so far developed code to extract data from an email and process it to discover the most important ones. This is achieved using the following email features: Senders Address Frequency Thread Activity Date Received (time between replies) Common Words in body/subject The code I have currently applies a ranking (or weighting) …

I currently have a client who offers a set of online self-improvement materials for a course which is intended to last a year, and which has new material sent to the participants every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Right now users register and then they are clustered into one of four lists based on when they register. While this system currently works - it's a hassle and my client is requesting I find a new system which allows users to register via PayPal or another payment gateway and then after payment is sent they will instantly begin the course cycle. Anyway, …

Hi everyone, I want to get started on learning jQuery Framework.I got the basics of the JavaScript at this stage. But now, I don't know where to start with jQuery. Other than the jQuery.com website. Would you suggest easy-to-follow introductions to jQuery? Is there a big difference between jQuery and jQuery for mobile? Would JQM work for desktop websites as well? Cheers,

I'm trying to learn exactly what is MVC or MVC patterns in code. I have done some research to a point where I believe I understand the meaning and use of this idea... But I do not entirely understand the concept. Is MVC( Model View Controller) pretty much, trying to develop a system/application without worrying about GUIs? Or am I missing the big picture, which I think is, making sure the application delivers the right information, data, etc? I was asked to learn how to use MVC patterns… Does this mean learn how to worry about functionality rather than Graphical …

Hello, This isn't the typical "I wrote a heap sort that doesn't work, help me please" thread, instead, I'm one step before that. I'd really like to [B]understand[/B] the innards of a heap sort before I attempt to write one. I'd like to give it a go from scratch, or from some basic pseudo code before resorting to dissecting an already written heap sort algorithm. Any information you could give to gently clear up the mystery here would be greatly appreciated. Regards, WigglesMcMuffin

Taking the advice of one of my relatives, I'm learning c#. Now, I've come to understand that I learn best by tinkering and playing around with things, and if I have a problem in front of me, I will learn quickly. I understand programming basics well enough, but most of my experience is with console programs (with painful memories of C++ classes), and now I am looking at form applications and non-text based UIs for the first time. This is confusing me greatly, and that's what I'm coming for advice for. The project I've designed for myself involves reverse engineering …

Ok I was able to validate user input if the user would enter a larger number or a negative number but how do you validate if the user happens to enter a letter or word, even character i.e % # @, or if the user enters all. How do you block the user to only enter a number for example 1 to 6? Also, What about if the user presses space? Please show examples. Is there an easier way as to using ASCII character set in maybe a switch case.
