Deep Quantile Regression

[unable to retrieve full-text content]Most Deep Learning frameworks currently focus on giving a best estimate as defined by a loss function. Occasionally something beyond a point estimate is required to make a decision. This is where a distribution would be useful. This article will purely focus on inferring quantiles.

Building a Basic Keras Neural Network Sequential Model

[unable to retrieve full-text content]The approach basically coincides with Chollet’s Keras 4 step workflow, which he outlines in his book “Deep Learning with Python,” using the MNIST dataset, and the model built is a Sequential network of Dense layers. A building block for additional posts.
