Optimising algorithms in Go for machine learning

In my last blog post I walked through the use of machine learning algorithms in Go to analyse the latent semantic meaning of documents. These algorithms, like many others in data science, rely on linear algebra and vector space analysis. By their nature, they often have to deal with large data sets, so any inefficiencies in the data structures used or algorithms themselves can result in a large impact on overall performance and/or memory usage. »

Semantic analysis of webpages with machine learning in Go

I spend a lot of time reading articles on the internet and started wondering whether I could develop software to automatically discover and recommend articles relevant to my interests. There are various aspects to this problem but I have decided to concentrate first on the core part of the problem: the analysis and classification of the articles. To illustrate the problem, lets consider the following string representing an article for the purpose of this example. »
