Suppose you have a target variable that’s bounded, such as a score between 0 and 1. How can Ridge regression be generalized to predict values in this interval? We create some optimization routines and present full Python code.
Given a set of football (soccer) matches and three outcomes per match to bet on, how should we place our money for maximal long-term growth? We generalize John Kelly’s idea from 1956 and solve it with modern optimization methods.
In powerlifting, formulas are used to assess and compare lifters with different body weights. In this article we evaluate two such formulas: Wilks and IPF GL. Then we generalize them and propose an alternative. We also create a formula that accounts for age and training experience.
A public transportation company in Norway uses AI in their ticket control process. They claim to have put special focus on the ethical use of AI. But does an obvious ethical solution to such a problem exist? I don’t think so.
(Norwegian) Digfrid, Emmund, Harbjørg, Joannica, Olfine og Trestina høres kanskje ut som norske navn - men det er de ikke. I denne artikkelen laster vi ned 5703 norske navn og trener en språkmodell til å generere nye, fiktive navn.
(Norwegian) Vi undersøker forskjellen mellom gutter og jenters grunnskolepoeng. Det er et stort overlapp mellom gruppene, men samtidig er det store deler som ikke overlapper. Hvordan kan vi få en intuisjon for hvor stor forskjellen er?
We Monte Carlo permutation tests to investigate three problems: (1) rats on restricted and free diets (differences between groups), (2) crime rates (differences between paired observations) and (3) the relationship between height and pulse (correlation between paired observations).
