We hear a lot about the term work-life balance. Several organizations have started using this term for the people who are not parents but seek a balance between work and non-work related activities such as sports, study, or travel [1]. In this article, I will refer to this term for finding a balance between work and non-work-related activities such as parenting, house chores, managing social relations for women.

Let us first understand the general meaning of the term.

Although this term is widely used, the literature does not contain one clear definition for the term. One of the definitions that…


Course notes of: AI for medical specialization

credit: medicine.wustl.edu

The best way to get deeper understanding of machine learning is to apply machine learning to different areas. One of the most exciting applications is the field of medicine. This course will focus on teaching how we can diagnose pneumonia from unstructured data or identify heart attack risk based on patient’s lab result.

It is a three course specialization.

  1. First course will focus on building machine learning models for diagnosis. Diagnosis is all about identifying disease. …

Course 4 in deep learning specialization (1st-week notes)

Update: If you have not read my previous articles on the notes of the other three deep learning specialization courses, then please do check out the series: article 1, article 2, article 3, article 4, article 5, article 6, article 7, article 8 and article 9.

Nowadays, deep learning is proving to be useful in several domains such as self-driving cars, healthcare, object detection, image recognition, and many more. In the image recognition field, when the size of the image is small, a neural network with a small number of hidden units perform well but if the size of the…


Structuring Machine Learning Projects (Week 2 Notes)

We reached halfway in learning this specialization course. For week 1 notes please check out this article.

When we are trying to upscale our algorithm to perform like humans, and if it doesn't perform up to that mark, manually examining the mistakes can provide insights into what to do next. This process is known as error analysis.

Before spending months trying to increase the performance of the algorithm by focusing on a specific solution, one should utilize error analysis to identify whether it is worthy or not. Let’s understand this with example. We have a cat classifier and it has…


Wow-what a fascinating field it is !! I started having this feeling when I knew little about machine learning. It has brought a new perspective to the way we see every problem. I felt that every question can be answered by it and that is so exciting !!

The only challenge I had that I did not know how I should enter in this field. So like everyone I googled a question. How to make a career in data science? And I found tones of articles. …


Structuring Machine Learning Projects (1st Week Notes)

It's been a long since I started learning this specialization course but in between, I feel overwhelmed about the kind of content available for me to learn in the field of machine learning and keep on browsing the other things losing touch with this one. This time I have decided to complete the certification and then only move forward with practicing other courses.

Have you felt similar challenges while planning to switch careers in this really lucrative field? If yes, do post in the comments. …


Course 2: Improving Deep Neural Networks: Hyperparameters tuning, Regularization and Optimization (Week 3 notes)

I have been receiving really good response with my notes on this course. It inspires me to do well on every article. If you have not yet read my 1st and 2nd-week notes, please check out this article.

Without any further delay, let's dive right into this week’s learning.

Training the neural networks involve setting several hyperparameters. In this week we will learn to find a good setting for them.

  1. Tuning Process

The question that arises while tuning the hyperparameters is how do you select the set of values to explore? During the earlier times, it was common practice to…


A glance at the domain of business analysis in an IT field

Disclaimer!! I am a product analyst in the healthcare IT domain hence this article is geared mostly towards the information technology space but still try to read it out and you may end up getting some useful information..!!

When I say I am a business analyst, not everyone clearly understands my role and responsibilities. Hence, I thought of explaining the core idea first.

According to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) guide: “Business Analysis ultimately helps organizations to understand the needs of the enterprise and why they want to create change, design possible solutions and describe how those solutions…


Course 2: Improving Neural Networks: Hyperparameters Tuning, Regularization and Optimization (Week 2 Notes)

In this week we will learn about optimization algorithms that will enable us to train our neural networks much faster. Deep learning works efficiently with huge data but training the algorithms on those data sets is really slow. Hence let us dive into learning the optimization algorithms.

In past, We have learned that vectorization helps in processing M training examples without explicit for loop. But, when the number of examples increases to a really high number, the training process becomes slow. …


A road traveled from not wanting a baby to having one

Who should be interested in reading my journey? I can give plenty of reasons but the one that comes to my mind right after asking this question is:

Those girls or women who are ambitious about their career and understand the importance of having a family, but often end up struggling in both should read it. Also, the men who want to understand their partner’s dilemma and the mixture of emotions while planning for one should definitely read it. Hence let’s dive into it right away.

Disclaimer: This article is trying to cover several scattered thoughts. …
