7 More Methods For Better Machine Learning
Many companies are now utilizing data science and machine learning, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement in terms of ROI. A 2021 VentureBeat analysis suggests that 87% of AI models never make it to a production environment and an MIT Sloan Management Review article found that... Read more
Answering Causal Questions in AI
Two of the main techniques used in order to try to discover causal relationships are Graphical Methods (such as Knowledge Graphs and Bayesian Belief Networks) and Explainable AI. These two methods form in fact the basis of the Association level in the Causality Hierarchy (Figure 1),... Read more
Exploit Your Hyperparameters: Batch Size and Learning Rate as Regularization
Gradient descent is one of the first concepts many learn when studying machine or deep learning. This optimization algorithm underlies most of machine learning, including backpropagation in neural networks. When learning gradient descent, we learn that learning rate and batch size matter. Specifically, increasing the learning rate speeds... Read more
Causal Reasoning in Machine Learning
Thanks to recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are now able to leverage Machine Learning and Deep Learning technologies in both academic and commercial applications. Although, relying just on correlations between the different features, can possibly lead to wrong conclusions since correlation does not necessarily... Read more
