Presentation: Measuring Business Impact of Machine Learning System

Track: ML in Action

Location: Cyril Magnin III

Duration: 1:10pm - 2:00pm

Day of week: Tuesday

Share this on:


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.
