Video: Image embedding using deep learning with Python (DLPy) and SAS Viya

An embedding model is a way to reduce the dimensionality of input data, such as images. Consider this to be a type of data preparation applied to image analysis. When an embedding model is used, input images are converted into low-dimensional vectors that can be more easily used by other computer vision tasks. The key to good embedding is to train the model so that similar images are converted to similar vectors.

Four machine learning strategies for solving real-world problems

There are four widely recognized styles of machine learning: supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised and reinforcement learning. These styles have been discussed in great depth in the literature and are included in most introductory lectures on machine learning algorithms. As a recap, the table below summarizes these styles. For a comprehensive mapping
