Statistical Methods with Domain-based Models

ml+domainmodelsThis WSJ article gives examples when ML-based solutions have been enhanced by the inclusion of pre-defined domain-specific models. “Machine learning is a statistical modeling technique, which finds and correlates patterns between inputs and outputs without necessarily capturing their cause-and-effect relationships. Data derived from human behavior is dynamic and ever-changing. Such messy data is difficult to analyze to make predictions.” Link Continue reading

Decision Simulation

“Decision services can have unintended results that may or may not be consistent with the original intent of the business. The best way to gauge the impact of a new model once it goes into production is to first run a simulation, using software that sends pertinent data through the decision service and analyzes the results. Business users can then access these simulations to validate the decision logic and business rules and assess potential business impact prior to deployment into a production environment.” Link
