Improving model and algorithm evaluation in predictive modelling (one step at a time)

In applied predictive modelling, practitioners usually face many methodological questions which are related to different objectives of the overall development and evaluation pipeline, e.g.:

“How should I split my data for training, comparison and testing purposes?”
“Which metric is suitable for assessing the utility of the developed models?”
“How can I quantify uncertainty of my evaluation results?”

In the talk, different examples of such problems related to model evaluation will be discussed and current developments on the expert system mlguide will be presented. In addition, an outlook on planned features and user research will be given.


Registration is not necessary.
