Questions tagged [machine-learning]

For questions related to machine learning (ML), which is a set of methods that can automatically detect patterns in data, and then use the uncovered patterns to predict future data, or to perform other kinds of decision making under uncertainty (such as planning how to collect more data). ML is usually divided into supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning. Deep learning is a subfield of ML that uses deep artificial neural networks.

Why do code implementations average the loss over a batch instead of finding the expected sample of that batch (using sampling probabilities)

Usually, our training objective over a batch is written in terms of the expected value of a sample in that batch such as $objective = E_{x \sim data} * log(P(x))$ But in the code implementations, ...
