What’s this page for?

Quickies are side questions that one would normally ask while learning about a bigger topic. I’ve decided to use this page as a collection of questions I’ve asked my self while I was studying ML. They don’t need a lot of explanation, just quick ‘what-is’ and’why’ questions with straightforward answers. It’s a lot of fun writing and might be fun for people just looking for light reading.

Got a quick math/machine learning question you want me to answer?

Write me a question that you think can be answered by a few sentences, and I’ll do my best to answer it in the most straightforward way I can in this Quickies page.
