### Use of variance of estimators in cross-validation [migrated]

Let's suppose we are using K-fold cross validation on a set of data of dimension $N_{data}$. We do not want to fix any parameter but just to get a confidence of the predictive power using the ...

### Pearson correlation coefficient - theory vs estimator

As far as I know when it comes to theory, we use Pearson correlation when we want to check linear correlation between two random variables, which are both continuous or discrete. For mixed case it's ...

### How can I do the correlation between two estimators?

I'm working with several estimators of all kind. Then, I want to stack these estimators, and the best is if they have low correlation between them. I suppose that the correlation method depends on ...

### Tensorflow “canned” estimators unable to “see” that signficant signal is the ratio of two columns

I have an appropriate dataset composed of X,Y and a LABEL to be used for binary classification. When fed to a Tensorflow canned estimator (tf.estimator.LinearClassifier, I tried both Linear and DNN) ...

### Math behind, MSE = bias^2 + variance

Based on the deeplearningbook: $$MSE = E[(\theta_m^{-} - \theta)^2]$$ $$equals$$ $$Bias(\theta_m^{-})^2 + Var(\theta_m^{-})$$ where m is the number of samples ...

### Is it possible to estimate

For example, if I want to know a page views/relative prevalence of a Reddit post, and I have the upvote and downvote data. Is it valid that I use the upvote and downvote to predict that, even if I ...

### Observation Operator - Data Assimilation

In data assimilation, one assumes the existence of a observation operator $\mathcal{H}$ that maps the model-state vector $\bf{x_b}$ to $\bf{y_b}$ (the model-equivalent of the observations $\bf{y_o}$) ...

### What is the difference between a Categorical Column and a Dense Column?

In Tensorflow, there are 9 different feature columns, arranged into three groups: categorical, dense and hybrid. From reading the guide, I understand categorical columns are used to represent ...

### Latent variables with thresholds

There are many ML techniques to estimate latent variables such as the EM algorithm. Is there a technique that allows for thresholds for each of the latent variables? I have a feature space with 10 ...

### Using recurrent neural networks for modeling errors in IMUs

Inertial measurement units (IMU), usually composed of accelerometers and gyroscopes; are well known to have inherent errors in their data, originating from bias, random walk noise, temperature ...

### Plotting estimates of Tail Dependence Coefficient in R

I want to plot the following estimate of the tail dependence coefficient: $\hat{\lambda}_n=\frac{1}{k}\sum_{j=1}^nI_{\{X_j>X_{(n-k)},Y_j>X_{(n-k)}\}}$ where $I_{(.)}$ is an indicator function ...

### Transformation of independent variables in regression (Measurement Error)

Consider the model $𝑌_𝑖=𝛽_0+𝛽_1𝑋_𝑖^\star+𝑢_𝑖$ In practice we measure $𝑋_𝑖^\star$ by $𝑋_𝑖$ such that a) $𝑋_𝑖=𝑋_𝑖^\star+3$ b) $𝑋_𝑖=5𝑋_𝑖^\star$ What will be the effect of these ...
Suppose I have a sample {$z_i$}$_{i\in[0,N]}$ = {($x_i,y_i$)}$_{i\in[0,N]}$ which commes from a probability distribution $p_z(z)$. How can I use it to estimate the mutual information between X and Y ? ...
