Are you wondering how to get Medium followers for your tech blog? Do you worry your content isn’t reaching enough people? Do you dream of that day when your analytics page of choice will display thousands upon thousands of views?

This piece is for you.

There is a Japanese word, tsundoku (積ん読), which means buying and keeping a growing collection of books, even though you don’t really read them all.

Deep Learning has revolutionized the Machine Learning scene in the last years. Can we apply it to image compression? How well can a Deep Learning algorithm reconstruct pictures of kittens? What’s an autoencoder?

Today we’ll use XGBoost Boosted Trees for regression over an official HDI dataset. Who said Supervised Learning was all about classification?
