Visualising Machine Learning pt.1

My last two posts have been talking creating linearly separable data.  Hopefully you found some of the features interesting – for example, the idea of creating interactivity using grab handles.  But I never really gave a purpose to what I was doing: I wanted to write some machine learning code – specifically a perceptron learning algorithm – and to test the code I needed to create some data on which it could act.  (more…)
