Machine Learning (Hypothesis Testing) Interview Questions

interview questions, practice tests on unit testing

This page represents a list of questions which can be used for preparation of machine learning interviews. The following are some of the areas covered in this set of questions: Null Hypothesis; Another page which explains the concept in decent manner is Null Hypothesis definition and examples, how to state. P-value; In simple words, p-value represents likelihood (in terms of probability) of sample results occurring if the null hypothesis is assumed to be true. For example, a p-value of 0.03 would mean that given the null hypothesis is true, the probability that results occur in the sample is 0.03 which is very less. Thus, the alternate hypothesis can be true. Thus, …

Top 10 Solution Approaches for Supervised Learning Problems

This article represents top 10 solutions approaches that could be used to solve supervised learning problems. For those unaware of what is supervised learning problem, here is the supervised learning definition from Wikipedia: Supervised learning is the machine learning task of inferring a function from labeled training data.[1] The training data consist of a set of training examples. In supervised learning, each example is a pair consisting of an input object (typically a vector) and a desired output value (also called the supervisory signal). A supervised learning algorithm analyzes the training data and produces an inferred function, which can be used for mapping new examples. Following are two different kind of supervised …
