It’s critical to have “humans in the loop” when automating the deployment of machine learning (ML) models. Why? Because models often perform worse over time.

This course covers the human directed safeguards that prevent poorly performing models from deploying into production and the techniques for evaluating models over time. We’ll use ModelDB to capture the appropriate metrics that help you identify poorly performing models. We’ll review the many factors that affect model performance (i.e., changing users and user preferences, stale data, etc.) and the variables that lose predictive power. We’ll explain how to utilize classification and prediction scoring methods such as precision recall, ROC, and jaccard similarity. [Read more…]

Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. [Read more…]
