So say I get a piece of email, and what I’ll do is I’ll then scan through this list of words, and wherever a certain word appears in my email, I’ll put a 1 there. So if a particular email has the word “aid” then that’s 1. You know, my email doesn’t have the words ausworth or aardvark, so it gets zeros. And again, a piece of email, they want me to buy something, CS229 doesn’t occur, and so on, okay? So this would be one way of creating a feature vector to represent a piece of email.

Now, let’s throw the generative model out for this. Actually, let’s use this. In other words, I want to model PFX given Y. The given Y = 0 or Y = 1, all right? And my feature vectors are going to be 0, 1 to the N. It’s going to be these split vectors, binary value vectors. They’re N dimensional. Where N may be on the order of, say, 50,000, if you have 50,000 words in your dictionary, which is not atypical. So values from – I don’t know, mid-thousands to tens of thousands is very typical for problems like these.

And, therefore, there two to the 50,000 possible values for X, right? So two to 50,000 possible bit vectors of length 50,000, and so one way to model this is the multinomial distribution, but because there are two to the 50,000 possible values for X, I would need two to the 50,000, but maybe -1 parameters, right? Because you have this sum to 1, right? So -1. And this is clearly way too many parameters to model using the multinomial distribution over all two to 50,000 possibilities.

So in a Naive Bayes algorithm, we’re going to make a very strong assumption on PFX given Y, and, in particular, I’m going to assume – let me just say what it’s called; then I’ll write out what it means. I’m going to assume that the XI’s are conditionally independent given Y, okay?

Let me say what this means. So I have that PFX1, X2, up to X50,000, right, given the Y. By the key rule of probability, this is PFX1 given Y times PFX2 given Y, X1 times PF – I’ll just put dot, dot, dot. I’ll just write 1, 1 × dot, dot, dot up to, you know, well – whatever. You get the idea, up to PFX50,000, okay?

So this is the chain were of probability. This always holds. I’ve not made any assumption yet, and now, we’re gonna meet what’s called the Naive Bayes assumption, or this assumption that X defies a conditionally independent given Y. Going to assume that – well, nothing changes for the first term, but I’m gonna assume that PFX3 given Y, X1 is equal to PFX2 given the Y. I’m gonna assume that that term’s equal to PFX3 given the Y, and so on, up to PFX50,000 given Y, okay? Or just written more compactly, means assume that PFX1, PFX50,000 given Y is the product from I = 1 to 50,000 or PFXI given the Y, okay?

And stating informally what this means is that I’m, sort of, assuming that – so unless you know the cost label Y, so long as you know whether this is spam or not spam, then knowing whether the word “A” appears in email does not affect the probability of whether the word “Ausworth” appears in the email, all right?

sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
