I will provide an overview of how to do metric driven ML system development, primarily to answer following questions:

  • How do you bootstrap machine learning system for new objectives?
  • How do you tie up the ML system performances with business goals?
  • Do precision & recall always work as primary metrics?
  • How do you measure effectiveness of entire ML system in the context of product success?

These questions will be answered in the context of fraud detection case study.
