We just recently stumbled upon a mini-series from R2D3 (http://www.r2d3.us/), explaining machine learning with visuals instead of equations. It’s describing one of the most common introductory topics to machine learning: housing predictions.
Say you need to determine whether something belongs to either of two groups. How would you do it?
What happens when we go from examining a single property to multiple?
Is it possible to become too good at something, effectively resulting in worse decision-making?
Answers to these questions (and more) are beautifully illustrated here:
