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 …

Probability Primer

Introduction This post is going to be a short and birds-eye view of probability theory. During my undergraduate days, I often wonder what is the use of probability theory provided its fluctuating nature. For example chance of getting ahead by tossing a fair coin is 0.5. Suppose we got the head the first time, there …
