Let me start by wishing you all a very happy new year. The first month of a year tends to bring in some fresh vibes to renew our resolutions which couldn’t have been fulfilled in the year gone by. I have also updated my To-do list, and there are some great add ons that I wish to include in this newsletter in the coming months.
As for this edition, there are tutorials, paper summaries, and interviews with book authors. I have also shared some nice resources for machine learning enthusiasts.
Decision trees can be visualized in multiple ways. For instance, the indentation nodes, the node-link diagram, or the icicle plots. While these techniques are helpful, they do not scale well, especially when the size of data increases. In such situations, not only does it become difficult to visualize the data, but interpreting and understanding the tree is also a challenge.
