Comparing Classifiers: Decision Trees, K-NN & Naive Bayes

A myriad of options exist for classification. In general, there isn't a single "best" option for every situation. That said, three popular classification methods— Decision Trees, k-NN & Naive Bayes—can be tweaked for practically every situation.OverviewNaive Bayes and K-NN, are both examples of supervised learning (where the data comes already labeled). …See More

The Lifecycle of Data

The lifecycle of data travels through six phases:The lifecycle "wheel" isn't set in stone. While it's common to move through the phases in order, it's possible to move in either direction (i.e. forward, backward) at any stage in the cycle. Work can also happen in several phases at the same time, or you can skip over entire phases. In addition, if new information is…See More

Alternatives to R-squared (with pluses and minuses)

R-squared can help you answer the question "How does my model perform, compared to a naive model?". However, r2 is far from a perfect tool. Probably the main issue is that every data set contains a certain amount of unexplainable data. R-squared can't tell the difference between the explainable and the unexplainable , so it will go…See More

Cross Validation in One Picture

Cross Validation explained in one simple picture. The method shown here is k-fold cross validation, where data is split into k folds (in this example, 5 folds). Blue balls represent training data; 1/k (i.e. 1/5) balls are held back for model testing.Monte Carlo cross validation works the same way, except that the balls would be chosen with replacement. In other words, it would be possible for a ball to appear in more than one sample.…See More

Assumptions of Linear Regression in One Picture

Posted on June 15, 2019 at 7:53am 0 Comments

If any of the main assumptions of linear regression are violated, any results or forecasts that you glean from your data will be extremely biased, inefficient or misleading. Navigating all of the different assumptions and recommendations to identify the assumption can be overwhelming (for example, normality has more than half a dozen options for testing).
This image highlights the assumptions and the most common testing options.…
