### One Softmax or two separate logistic regressions for the task of classifying pictures as a/b and c/d

It is possible to have an output for every combination of independent classes. As another poster has noted this scales poorly. It is also possible to have a network which diverges into two sets of ...

### One Softmax or two separate logistic regressions for the task of classifying pictures as a/b and c/d

Softmax gives you a probability distribution, thus its output are positive and sum to 1... if you want "outdoor" AND "daytime", you want a $1$ on the "outdoor" neuron and ...

### How to evaluate the KL divergence between two distributions that may require sampling?

The distribution being conditional or not does not change the notion of KL divergence. Indeed, given $p(x) \sim N(\mu_1, \sigma_1^2)$ and $q(x) \sim N(\mu_2, \sigma_2^2)$, the KL can be estimated in ...

### Does a random forest classifier always get 100% accuracy on its own training data?

No, random forest is not guaranteed to get 100% accuracy on the test data. But it also doesn’t mean it’s overfit because relatively high scores on test data are common with random forests. The trees ...

### How does Training and Validating work with Graph CNNs

There are two main settings of doing training/validation/testing in graphs: Inductive Setting: You datasets consists of multiple graph (e.g. molecules) and you simply split the graphs into training/...
