Toy Gaussian Mixture Estimation with EM Algorithm

This terms quite often in computer vision related research papers. I am going to toyify it (a core simple explanation). All the code snippets are to be found along with the post. This is roughly a summarization of an excellent youtube-mini-series by Victor Lavrenko. The code snippets are my works. Preliminaries To understand this, you … Continue reading Toy Gaussian Mixture Estimation with EM Algorithm

List of Significant Probability Puzzles

I am collecting a list of probability/statistics/random processes puzzle problems. Click on the links for the description and solutions of the problem. It is well worth the effort to study, understand and derive the solutions to these. Helps sharpen the mind and increase your analysis skill. Please feel free to add your suggestion if I … Continue reading List of Significant Probability Puzzles

Part-2 : Simulating a Mechanical System with Differential Equations

This is my second part in a built-up towards understanding and implementing a real world control system. In my past post, I talked about differential equations.  The take home message from my last post was that, given a mechanical system and solving the free body diagram of it, we can get the differential equations describing … Continue reading Part-2 : Simulating a Mechanical System with Differential Equations
