Beginning deep learning with 500 lines of Julia (Version 2)
Click here for Version 1 of this tutorial. OK, first a disclaimer: this version of KUnet.jl , my deep learning code for Julia, is a bit more than 500 lines, but it is still under 1000 lines and it supports convolution and pooling, new activation and loss f...

CUDNN Julia port
I just finished implementing CUDNN.jl , a Julia wrapper for the NVIDIA cuDNN GPU accelerated deep learning library . It consists of a low level interface and a high level interface. The low level interface wraps each function from libcudnn.so in a Julia fun...

Parallelizing a parser
Parsers (as well as many other natural language processing algorithms) work by (1) extracting features for the current state, and (2) using a machine learning model to predict the best action / structure based on those features. The feature extraction code...

Beginning deep learning with 500 lines of Julia
There are a number of deep learning packages out there . However most sacrifice readability for efficiency. This has two disadvantages: (1) It is difficult for a beginner student to understand what the code is doing, which is a shame because sometimes the...

Parallel processing for natural language
In this post I will explore how to parallelize certain types of machine learning / natural language processing code in an environment with multiple cpu cores and/or a gpu. The running example I will use is a transition based parser, but the same techniques...

What level of disclosure is appropriate? How can public accountability be balanced with the privacy essential for scientific inquiry?  "Transparency versus harassment." An editorial exploring this as a zero sum tradeoff… a concept I do not actually accept. 
Summary Open records laws worldwide are critical to holding public institutions, including universities, accountable. Such laws protect against inappropriate influence on the scientific enterprise and promote public trust in the integrity of science and scientists. But the growing use of electronic communications by researchers makes these laws vulnerable to misuse. Conversations that used to occur in person and by other less-recordable means are...

Big questions
While browsing some interesting talks on the web, I realized some of the "big questions" that cause much confusion fall into one of two categories. Physics does not have X. Is X something real and missing in physics, or is X an illusion, a modeling tool, a ...

Alec Radford's animations for optimization algorithms
Alec Radford has created some great animations comparing optimization algorithms SGD, Momentum, NAG, Adagrad, Adadelta, RMSprop (unfortunately no Adam) on low dimensional problems. Also check out his presentation on RNNs . " Noisy moons: This is logistic r...
"Noisy moons: This is logistic regression on noisy moons dataset from sklearn which shows the smoothing effects of momentum based techniques (which also results in over shooting and correction). The error surface is visualized as an average over the whole dataset empirically, ...

Have a good day,

Ah, "Parser Problems" are interesting.

Do You thought about an Parser of logical sense that is an more philosophical and linguistic?
