Learning Objectives

  • Learn to translate business problems into machine learning algorithms.
  • Know how to treat unstructured and semi structured data, such as text, time series, spatial, graph data, and images.
  • Understand the generalization error of the model before deployment
  • Ensure proper handling of training and testing data so the testing data mimics incoming data when the model is deployed in production
  • Selecting the appropriate objective/loss function inspired by the business value is important for ultimate success in the application
  • Understanding features in the data and improving upon them (by creating new features and eliminating existing ones) has a high impact in terms of predictability
  • Selecting the machine learning method that works best for the given problem is key and often determines success or failure
