In this post, I'm going to summarize what worked for me in the servers I manage (always using Ubuntu […]

Multi-Layer Perceptron for regression in Julia: Using the Mocha framework

With the raise of machine learning techniques to analyze data, a bunch of frameworks to build those models have arised. Today, most machine learning techniques are based on deep learning models which are based on artificial neural networks (ANN). In this post, I'm going to introduce a deep learning framework for the Julia programming language […]
