Why you should NEVER run a Logistic Regression (unless you have to)

Hello fellow Data Science-Centralists!

I wrote a post on my LinkedIn about why you should NEVER run a Logistic Regression. (Unless you really have to).

The main thrust is:

  • There is no theoretical reason why a least squares estimator can't work on a 0/1.
  • There are very very narrow theoretical reasons that you want to run a logistic, and unless you fall into those categories it's not worth the time.
  • The run time of a logistic can be up to…

Cross-validation and hyperparameter tuning

Introduction

Almost every machine learning algorithm comes with a large number of settings that we, the machine learning researchers and practitioners, need to specify. These tuning knobs, the so-called hyperparameters, help us control the behavior of machine learning algorithms when optimizing for performance, finding the right balance between bias and variance. Hyperparameter tuning for performance optimization is an art in itself,…

5 Rules of Probability in One Picture (Cat and Dog Edition)

Knowledge of the basic rules of probability is a must-have for any data scientist. But if you're a visual learner like me, learning the algebraic representations of the 5 basic rules of probability (i.e. P(A) + P(B) = 1) is a challenge. I've never been very good at memorizing formulas, but images stick in my head like ear worms.  Whenever I come across a new formula, I try to make it visual with a picture or doodle. The following picture shows some of the images I created to…
