There are many metrics via which one can measure the performance of a model. One possible measure is the mean absolute percent error. It is calculated by taking the mean of the absolute value of the actual values minus the predictions divided by the actual values. Another measure of performance is the...

In machine learning, a parametric model is any model that captures all the information about its predictions within a finite set of parameters. Sometimes the model must be trained to select its parameters, as in the case of neural networks. Sometimes the parameters are selected by hand or through a simple...

In machine learning, model validation is the process of verifying that models are providing a satisfactory fit to their data, in line with both qualitative and quantitative objectives. While partially consisting of a set of tried-and-true processes, model validation is a heterogenous process that cannot...

Software engineers and data scientists are two distinct, yet equally important roles in computer science. Although they both require knowledge of programming, there are several differentiating factors between software engineers and data scientists. Software engineers specialize in the creation and maintenance...

Fundamentally, machine learning models are divided into two camps: supervised and unsupervised. The supervised model is probably the type you’re most familiar with, and it represents a paradigm of learning that’s prevalent in the real world.  What is supervised learning?  In supervised learning,...
