Whenever a new product is launched in the market, the first thing that catches the consumer’s eye is the look. The movie, ‘Avatar’ was launched to rave reviews that praised its CGI. As much as we may take graphics for granted, designers put in painstaking efforts to create visually stunning products. It is not as easy as it may seem. Fortunately, the job has been made easier by the advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is the one industry that is revolutionizing every other industry in its wake. Let’s look into how AI has helped improve our overall visual experience.


Recently, I took part in a Machine Learning competition organized by the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) department of the National Institute of Technology, Trichy (NITT). It was a competition named Data Crunch, where we were given a dataset and we had to use a machine learning model to predict the “Heat” variable. A test set was also provided to make some predictions and submit them. The correctness of these submissions is judged based on the R2_score. In this article, I will talk about how I approached the problem and outline my solution to the problem.

Machine Learning (ML) is a field of Artificial Intelligence where data-driven algorithms learn patterns by getting exposed to relevant data. ML has gained massive importance in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP), i.e. interpreting human language. In this article, we will focus on the use of ML in predicting the ratings of user reviews. The data used in this article was taken from Kaggle (Link) where around 20000 reviews were collected from Trip Advisor.

All the code in this article has been written in Python 3 using Jupyter Notebook.

To begin with, we must import the relevant libraries we…


Machine Learning (ML) is disruptive technology that has taken the world by storm. It is the process where a computer learns to make predictions after observing some given data. It is used in Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing and Stock Price Prediction to name a few. The domain of ML is vast and it’s only going to get bigger. To demonstrate one such use of this technology, this article will talk about classifying pictures of the Avengers (namely Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor).
