Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research shows how to compute the Wasserstein distance and explains why it is often preferable to alternative distance functions, used to measure the distance between two probability distributions in machine learning projects.
"It will become possible to do more and more sophisticated things with your software just by telling it what to do."
The August 2021 release of the Python Extension for Visual Studio Code completes a revamp of the Jupyter Notebooks experience that was started more than a year ago.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research explains how to implement a geometry-inspired optimization technique called spiral dynamics optimization (SDO), an alternative to Calculus-based techniques that may reach their limits with huge neural networks.
After triggering existential angst among developers, the new 'AI pair programmer' has the Free Software Foundation calling for white papers to address legal and philosophical questions.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research uses a full movie review example to explain the natural language processing (NLP) problem of sentiment analysis, used to predict whether some text is positive (class 1) or negative (class 0).
"Let's see the question we're all wondering ... can this replace our jobs?" said a Reddit reader commenting on the site's thread for GitHub Copilot, an "AI pair programmer" unveiled as a technical preview this week.
A new "AI pair programmer" represents a breakthrough in the third revolution of software development: the use of AI in coding, says GitHub CEO Nat Friedman.
ML.NET -- an open source, cross-platform machine learning framework for .NET devs -- now works on ARM64 and Apple M1 devices, and on Blazor WebAssembly, with some limitations for each.
Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research demonstrates applying the L-BFGS optimization algorithm to the ML logistic regression technique for binary classification -- predicting one of two possible discrete values.
