Making Sense of Machine Learning Output With Probabilities


When it comes to classification models in machine learning, a common hurdle for many businesses is how to take what seem like arbitrary scores from their machine learning pipeline’s model output and translate them into human interpretable numbers that can be used in practice.  Let’s say a retail company wants to predict which existing customers […]

Open the Black Box of Machine Learning with Explainable ML


Machine learning. Everybody is either doing it or trying to get their data organized so they can start.  The list of use cases that ML can be applied to is ever-growing. Today, businesses are picking them off one by one. But while the machines are getting smarter and helping us intelligently automate more and more […]

Introducing Cortex Automation Dashboards


Cortex enables businesses to continuously stream large-scale data into Machine Learning models ranging from recommendation models to event prediction models (e.g. who will convert on an offer in the next 3 days). As a result, some of our more active partners are streaming billions of behavioral events in Cortex on a monthly cadence and implement […]

Announcing New Cortex APIs : Items API


Cortex provides a robust automated machine learning platform. Many of our partners leverage Cortex to personalize offers, articles, videos, and goods. Therefore, with the launch of our Items API, we now allow our partners to programmatically list, control, and add items to Cortex. Use cases for this component of Cortex include – Firstly, disabling an […]

Vidora Field Trip: Deep Learning Using AWS


Vidora’s engineering team took a field trip today. We did this in order to see Sunil Mallya present a talk about machine learning using deep neural networks at the AWS Loft. At this talk, the topics covered include deep learning and convolutional neural networks. It was a great event! Vidora founders Philip West and Abhik […]
