Binomial Distribution

Introduction Probability distributions are cornerstones in the theory of machine learning. The entire field of machine learning is often theoretically viewed or explained from a probabilistic perspective. Compared to the linear algebraic point of view, the probabilistic perspective gives formulations of machine learning algorithms that are more impressive. Understanding probability distributions and their behavior are …
