Projects that are tagged with deep belief networks.

About: Nowadays this is very popular to use the deep architectures in machine learning. Deep Belief Networks (DBNs) are deep architectures that use a stack of Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBM) to create a powerful generative model using training data. DBNs have many abilities such as feature extraction and classification that are used in many applications including image processing, speech processing, text categorization, etc. This paper introduces a new object oriented toolbox with the most important abilities needed for the implementation of DBNs. According to the results of the experiments conducted on the MNIST (image), ISOLET (speech), and the 20 Newsgroups (text) datasets, it was shown that the toolbox can learn automatically a good representation of the input from unlabeled data with better discrimination between different classes. Also on all the aforementioned datasets, the obtained classification errors are comparable to those of the state of the art classifiers. In addition, the toolbox supports different sampling methods (e.g. Gibbs, CD, PCD and our new FEPCD method), different sparsity methods (quadratic, rate distortion and our new normal method), different RBM types (generative and discriminative), GPU based, etc. The toolbox is a user-friendly open source software in MATLAB and Octave and is freely available on the website.

About: The Accord.NET Framework is a .NET machine learning framework combined with audio and image processing libraries completely written in C#. It is a complete framework for building production-grade computer vision, computer audition, signal processing and statistics applications even for commercial use. A comprehensive set of sample applications provide a fast start to get up and running quickly, and an extensive online documentation helps fill in the details.


Adding a large number of new distributions, such as Anderson-Daring, Shapiro-Wilk, Inverse Chi-Square, Lévy, Folded Normal, Shifted Log-Logistic, Kumaraswamy, Trapezoidal, U-quadratic and BetaPrime distributions, Birnbaum-Saunders, Generalized Normal, Gumbel, Power Lognormal, Power Normal, Triangular, Tukey Lambda, Logistic, Hyperbolic Secant, Degenerate and General Continuous distributions.

Other additions include new statistical hypothesis tests such as Anderson-Daring and Shapiro-Wilk; as well as support for all of LIBLINEAR's support vector machine algorithms; and format reading support for MATLAB/Octave matrices, LibSVM models, sparse LibSVM data files, and many others.
