In the code, note that we assume as usual that we have a function getData() that returns some NxD matrix for the input data and an Nx1 vector for the output targets. We will load both training data and test data, so we’ll have Xtrain of size NtrainxD, Ytrain of size Ntrainx1, Xtest of size NtestxD, and Ytest of size Ntestx1. Note that there is code for both the squared error objective and cross-entropy objective. Typically we use cross-entropy for 0/1 targets, but you’ll see that it works even better than squared error.

This is the default method used in Sci-Kit Learn. One solution is to take a sample of just a few hundred data points and do t-SNE on that, but of course you can increase this amount if you’re willing to wait longer and you have enough RAM. Exercises Try t-SNE (from the sci-kit learn library) on the MNIST dataset. Try writing your own naive implementation given the definitions above, and take advantage of Theano’s automatic differentiation. Chapter 3: Autoencoders and Stacked Denoising Autoencoders In this chapter we are going to talk about autoencoders.

Pre-processing and Overfitting The last application of PCA we’ll talk about is pre-processing and overfitting. You can imagine that our data is often noisy. Hopefully, the noise is small compared to the true pattern. In that case, the variance of the noise, which should be small, would go into the last columns of our transformed data Z, at which point we could just discard it. We could then feed this new data into a supervised machine learning model such as logistic regression - in fact we did this in my previous courses.
