The Computer Vision Pipeline, Part 2: input images

From Deep Learning for Vision Systems by Mohamed Elgendy

In this part, we will discuss the input images for computer vision systems.

The Random Cut Forest Algorithm

From Machine Learning for Business by Doug Hudgeon and Richard Nichol

In this article, you’ll see how SageMaker and the Random Cut Forest algorithm can be used to create a model that will highlight the invoice lines that Brett should query with the law firm. The result will be a repeatable process that Brett can apply to every invoice that will keep the lawyers working for his bank on their toes and will save the bank hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Off we go!

Constraint-Satisfaction Problems in Python

From Classic Computer Science Problems in Python by David Kopec

A large number of problems which computational tools solve can be broadly categorized as constraint-satisfaction problems (CSPs). CSPs are composed of variables with possible values which fall into ranges known as domains. Constraints between the variables must be satisfied in order for constraint-satisfaction problems to be solved. Those three core concepts—variables, domains, and constraints—are simple to understand, and their generality underlies the wide applicabilit
