You can use it if you install the bleeding edge scikits.learn git version, by first downloading the source code as explained in the user’s guide, and then running python install.

July 10, 2011


One of the simplest, and yet most heavily constrained form of matrix factorization, is vector quantization (VQ). Heavily used in image/video compression, the VQ problem is a factorization where (our dictionary) is called the codebook and is designed to cover the cloud of data points effectively, and each line of is a unit vector. This […]
