Example of Multi-layer Perceptron Classifier in Python

This article demonstrates an example of a Multi-layer Perceptron Classifier in Python. In general, we use the following steps for implementing a Multi-layer Perceptron classifier. To begin with, first, we import the necessary libraries of python. After that, create a list of attribute names in the dataset and use it in a call to the read_csv() function of the …

Measuring Performance of Classification using Confusion Matrix

In this post on Measuring Performance of Classification using Confusion Matrix, I will explain what is a confusion matrix and how to use it with a Machine Learning classifier. Machine Learning offers a number of algorithms for classification and prediction. However, each algorithm performs differently. Hence, we must have some kind of performance measures to evaluate the …

Artificial Neural Network (ANN) Model using Scikit-Learn

In this post on Artificial Neural Network (ANN) Model using Scikit-Learn, I will demonstrate how to use the scikit-learn library of python to build an Artificial Neural Network. Before proceeding further, let us first discuss what is an Artificial Neural Network. Artificial Neural Network (ANN) Basically, an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) has comprises of an input …

Popular Machine Learning Algorithms for Prediction

Since making accurate predictions on the basis of historical data helps us in determining the likely outcome, it is very important for making decisions in nearly all kinds of business. There are several Machine Learning techniques that we can use to predict the outcome given a dataset. This article presents a number of Popular Machine Learning Algorithms …
