When studying my beginners guide to machine learning, I find a plethora of references to Naive Bayes and not so much Bayes. If I understand correctly Naive Bayes is a group of algorithms used for machine learning classification that is based on the Bayes theorem. Chasing a packet of data through a simple machine learning network with Bayes feedback for optimization can be a real challenge. It is almost magic!


Bayes’ Theorem: The Holy Grail of Data Science
Intuitive derivation of the Bayes’ Theorem

Bayes’ Theorem is perhaps the most important theorem in the field of mathematical statistics and probability theory. For this reason, the theorem finds its use very often in the field of data science.


Easy to follow examples for the math challenged. Enjoy!
