Anomaly Detection with Isolation Forest and Kernel Density Estimation

Anomaly detection is to find data points that deviate from the norm. In other words, those are the points that do not follow expected patterns. Outliers and exceptions are terms used to describe unusual data. Anomaly detection is important in a variety of fields because it gives valuable and actionable insights. An abnormality in an […]

Difference Between Algorithm and Model in Machine Learning

Difference Between Algorithm and Model in Machine Learning

Machine learning involves the use of machine learning algorithms and models. For beginners, this is very confusing as often “machine learning algorithm” is used interchangeably with “machine learning model.” Are they the same thing or something different? As a developer, your intuition with “algorithms” like sort algorithms and search algorithms will help to clear up […]

A Gentle Introduction to Concept Drift in Machine Learning

A Gentle Introduction to Concept Drift in Machine Learning

Data can change over time. This can result in poor and degrading predictive performance in predictive models that assume a static relationship between input and output variables. This problem of the changing underlying relationships in the data is called concept drift in the field of machine learning. In this post, you will discover the problem […]
