Quality of Machine Learning Models

Special Guest!

The understanding of quality for machine learning models can differ significantly from traditional software engineering. For instance, rather than trying to eliminate all possible errors over time,  we accept that models will still be wrong and are suspicious of those that claim to be 100% correct.

This session will discuss criteria and strategies to evaluate the quality of a machine learning model, focusing on its performance and fairness for the intended purpose.
