Machine Learning Accuracy: Learn the Metric to Assess ML Models [’19]

Demonstrates the 4 possible categories of results of a model: True positive, false positive, true negative, false negative

There are various theoretical approaches to measuring accuracy* of competing machine learning models however, in most commercial applications, you simply need to assign a business value to 4 types of results: true positives, true negatives, false positives and false negatives. By multiplying number of results in each bucket with the associated business values, you will ensure that you use the best model available.

Further complicating this situation is the confidence vales provided by the model. Almost all machine learning models can be built to provide a level of confidence for their answer. A high level approach to using this value in accuracy* measurement is to multiply it with the results, essentially rewarding the model for providing high confidence values for its correct assessments.

AutoML Software / Tools in 2019: In-depth Guide

We explained autoML in detail. Now it is time to figure out the right software for auto ML for your business.

3 Types of AutoML Solution Providers

Open Source

AI is one of the few scientific areas were despite significant corporate investment, even secretive tech giants like Apple publish their research findings. Therefore it should not be surprising that there are competitive open source autoML tools.

All open source tools we came across, need an active development environment in Python or R and require the user to write at least a few lines of code to initiate the automated machine learning process. Read more

AutoML: In depth Guide to Automated Machine Learning [2019]

Automated machine learning has the potential to greatly increase the productivity of data scientist and democratize machine learning tools. It can be a powerful solution to the well documented scarcity of data scientists.

What is automated machine learning?

According to Wikipedia:

Automated machine learning (AutoML) is the process of automating the end-to-end process of applying machine learning to real-world problems.

Automated ML solutions aim to automate some or all steps of the machine learning process which includes:

  • Data pre-processing
  • Feature engineering
  • Feature extraction
  • Feature selection
  • Algorithm selection & hyperparameter optimization

Since accuracy of machine learning solutions can be measured, automated systems can fine-tune data, features, algorithms and hyperparameters of algorithms to generate accurate models relying on established machine learning knowledge and trial&error. Read more

Data Science Consulting & Consultants in 2019: In-depth Guide

Graph of Google search trends on data science

Interest in data science grew >5x during the last 5 years as you can see above.

However it is still not clear to many how data science consulting is different than regular consulting. After all, consulting is supposed to be about making data-driven decisions. A critical difference is that data science consultants leave their clients with reusable operational models. However, most regular consulting projects answer important but one-off questions and do not leave clients with operational decision making models. Read more
