How dinosaurs shrank and became computers?! A brief history of computer storage devices!

I can’t take any more photos, there is no space left on my smart phone! My Windows is running so slow, I must free up some space! I’m quite sure you have experienced these desperate situations. From the first days of the computer, infinite storage capacity was one of the goals. Needproof, Okay! ENIACwas the first electronic computer.

Exploring Naïve Bayes classifier: Maybe not so naïve after all?!

Although relatively simple, Naïve Bayes (NB) is one of the powerful machine learning techniques. It’s not only simple but fast and accurate and has been used in various applications and domains. So, it’s a reliable friend that you can trust on rainy days! In this post, we will see how it works. Who is NB’s daddy!? You can trace NB’s roots back to probability theory and the Bayes theorem. Don’t worry if you don’t know them, we will explore them a bit later. The nature of NB is probabilistic as it deals with probabilities and degrees of certainty or...
