Machine Learning

Using the Azure Custom Vision API

Machine learning has infinite potential and we are at the forefront of discovering applications for it. In its infancy, machine learning is already being utilized for things like financial market predictions, medical diagnosis, and retail. It’s a complex topic that even the most experienced technologist might have difficulty navigating. Tasks like training models (the method…

Introduction to Predictive Analytics Anomaly Detection

Many of our manufacturing customers create devices that are comprised of various electronic components. They collect data from the various components as the device operates—for example, the component’s temperature, how much current is passing through the component, whether a given component is emitting and at what frequency, etc. We developed a multi-step process to analyze…

5 Reasons a Retailer Needs StagedPay


Every merchant that accepts credit card payments runs the risk of embarrassing and costly data breaches, as well as the high cost of being PCI compliant. While some industries, such as retail, hospitality, and food service, are particularly vulnerable to payment system breaches, every business that processes and stores its customers’ payment information is at…

Implementing Machine Learning Algorithms in Octave


Experimenting With ML in Octave Before moving on to how to use machine learning (ML) to solve classification problems (sometimes also called selection problems), let’s take some time to implement one of the algorithms we reviewed previously. We’ll be using GNU Octave to implement the various algorithms we discuss in this blog. Octave is a…

Machine Learning Math: Understanding Classification Problems

classification problem

In our previous blog posts, we covered regression problems where we’re trying to predict the value of our target function. In regression problems, our target function is a real-valued function, and we’re trying to compute a real number that estimates its value at given data points. In the next couple of posts, we’ll cover classification problems,…

Improve Customer Service With Automated Chat and Machine Learning

Research from the global consulting company Gartner shows that by 2020, chatbots and other automated solutions will handle 85% of customer service interactions. Companies are transitioning to automated customer service for many reasons. For example, it offers faster response times, can predict customer service issues, and is increasingly cost-effective. Additionally, when coupled with artificial intelligence…

The Role of Error Functions in Machine Learning

Defining Error Functions in Machine Learning Algorithms In our last blog post on machine learning and mathematics, we defined an error function as follows: Next, we found a w that minimizes this error function, and we used that w to define our linear function that approximates our target function: g(x) = w ⋅ x It…
