SUBOPTIMaL stands for "Seriously Unnecessary Baffling Obscure Perplexing Terms In Machine Learning". Many people use complicated terms in machine learning and math for things that are actually not difficult to explain. This website tries to reformulate these complicated terms and formulas in a simple, accessible and easy to understand format.

I write most explanations, but many are contributed by people throught GitHub. If you want to make a correction or contribute an explanation check out the Contribution Guidelines. Make sure to also check the current open issues for ideas what people want to see explained.
