“Your reality is what you expect!” -How the brain manipulates our vision?


Reading time: 3 min 49 sec How do we watch a beautiful sunset or a thriller NetFlix movie? I mean, what’s the mechanism behind vision? The answer is high school stuff, isn’t it? A stream of photons hitting on our retina, generating electric impulses to communicate with our visual cortex from where the brain constructs a visual form of an irrefutable reality around us. Right? … Continue reading “Your reality is what you expect!” -How the brain manipulates our vision?

Witnessing the learning process of a Machine learning algorithm (Octave 5.2 / Matlab)


Reading time ~5 min Have you ever witnessed the learning process of a Machine Learning (ML) algorithm? Today, you are going to see how an ML algorithm learns and creates its own model from the given data. As an example, let’s consider a linear data set where the ‘y’ values are a linear function of ‘x’ values. You might have done such linear curve fitting … Continue reading Witnessing the learning process of a Machine learning algorithm (Octave 5.2 / Matlab)
