QA & Data Science – How to Test Features Relevance

how to test feature relevance in data science

In this post, I intend to present a perspective on the need for QA / testing team to test the feature relevance when testing the machine learning models as part of data science QA initiatives, and, different techniques which could be used to test or perform QA on feature relevance. Feature relevance can also be termed as feature importance. Simply speaking, a feature is said to be relevant or important if it adds real predictive value to the underlying model. The relevant features must display a stable statistical relationship or association with the outcome variable. Well, an association does not imply a causation. However, a relevant feature or a feature …

AI – Three Different types of Machine Learning Algorithms

Types of machine learning (AI)

This post is aimed to help you learn different types of machine learning algorithms which forms the key to artificial intelligence (AI). Machine learning algorithms Representation or Feature learning algorithms Deep learning algorithms The following represents different types of learning algorithms in form of a Venn diagram. What are Machine Learning (ML) Algorithms? Machine learning algorithms are the most simplistic class of algorithms when talking about AI. ML algorithms are based on the idea that external entities such as business analysts and data scientists need to work together to identify the features set for building the model. The ML algorithms are, then, trained to come up with coefficients for each of the features and how are they …

Data Science – What are Machine Learning (ML) Models?

Definition of Machine Learning Model

Machine learning (ML) models is the most commonly used in a data science project. In this post, you will learn about different definitions of a machine learning model to get a better understanding of what are machine learning models? A model is the relationship between features and the label. (Tensorflow – Getting Started for ML Beginners) An ML model is a mathematical model that generates predictions by finding patterns in your data. (AWS ML Models) ML Models generate predictions using the patterns extracted from the input data (Amazon Machine learning – Key concepts) Learning in the supervised model entails creating a function that can be trained by using a training …

Tutorials – Building Machine Learning Models for Predicting Cancer

Machine Learning to predict Mesothelioma Cancer

In this article, I would introduce different aspects of the building machine learning models to predict whether a person is suffering from malignant or benign cancer while emphasizing on how machine learning can be used (predictive analysis) to predict cancer disease, say, Mesothelioma Cancer. The approach such as below can as well be applied to any other diseases including different types of cancers. Predicting Mesothelioma Cancer – Supervised Learning Problem Machine learning problems are classified into different kinds of learning problem. Most important of them are following: Supervised learning Unsupervised learning Supervised Learning In supervised learning, you have a history of data with each record being labeled. Thus, in case of predictive analysis of Mesothelioma cancer, there is …
