Among the many decisions you’ll have to make when building a predictive model is whether your business problem is either a classification or an approximation task. It’s an important decision because it determines which group of methods you choose to create a model: classification (decision trees, Naive Bayes) or approximation (regression tree,…

It’s important to explain the distinction: Correlation means that once we know how one variable changes we can make reasonable deductions about how other variables change There are several variants of correlation:

1. Positive…

Understanding machine learning #3: Confusion matrix - not all errors are equal

Posted on November 13, 2016 at 4:30am

One of the most typical tasks in machine learning is classification tasks. It may seem that evaluating the effectiveness of such a model is easy. Let’s assume that we have a model which, based on historical data, calculates if a client will pay back credit obligations. We evaluate 100 bank customers and our model correctly guesses in 93 instances. That may appear to be  a good result – but is it really? Should we consider a model with 93% accuracy as adequate?

It depends. Today, we…
