A Gentle Introduction to Uncertainty in Machine Learning

A Gentle Introduction to Uncertainty in Machine Learning

Applied machine learning requires managing uncertainty. There are many sources of uncertainty in a machine learning project, including variance in the specific data values, the sample of data collected from the domain, and in the imperfect nature of any models developed from such data. Managing the uncertainty that is inherent in machine learning for predictive […]

Resources for Getting Started With Probability in Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a field of computer science concerned with developing systems that can learn from data. Like statistics and linear algebra, probability is another foundational field that supports machine learning. Probability is a field of mathematics concerned with quantifying uncertainty. Many aspects of machine learning are uncertain, including, most critically, observations from the problem […]

Findings Comparing Classical and Machine Learning Methods for Time Series Forecasting

Comparing Classical and Machine Learning Algorithms for Time Series Forecasting

Machine learning and deep learning methods are often reported to be the key solution to all predictive modeling problems. An important recent study evaluated and compared the performance of many classical and modern machine learning and deep learning methods on a large and diverse set of more than 1,000 univariate time series forecasting problems. The […]

How and When to Use a Calibrated Classification Model with scikit-learn

Instead of predicting class values directly for a classification problem, it can be convenient to predict the probability of an observation belonging to each possible class. Predicting probabilities allows some flexibility including deciding how to interpret the probabilities, presenting predictions with uncertainty, and providing more nuanced ways to evaluate the skill of the model. Predicted […]

How to Configure the Number of Layers and Nodes in a Neural Network

How to Configure the Number of Layers and Nodes in a Neural Network

Artificial neural networks have two main hyperparameters that control the architecture or topology of the network: the number of layers and the number of nodes in each hidden layer. You must specify values for these parameters when configuring your network. The most reliable way to configure these hyperparameters for your specific predictive modeling problem is […]
