Thoughtful Machine Learning: A Test-Driven Approach

Buy

Learn how to apply test-driven development (TDD) to machine-learning algorithms—and catch mistakes that could sink your analysis. In this practical guide, author Matthew Kirk takes you through the principles of TDD and machine learning, and shows you how to apply TDD to several machine-learning algorithms, including Naive Bayesian classifiers and Neural Networks.

Machine-learning algorithms often have tests baked in, but they can’t account for human errors in coding. Rather than blindly rely on machine-learning results as many researchers have, you can mitigate the risk of errors with TDD and write clean, stable machine-learning code. If you’re familiar with Ruby 2.1, you’re ready to start.

  • Apply TDD to write and run tests before you start coding
  • Learn the best uses and tradeoffs of eight machine learning algorithms
  • Use real-world examples to test each algorithm through engaging, hands-on exercises
  • Understand the similarities between TDD and the scientific method for validating solutions
  • Be aware of the risks of machine learning, such as underfitting and overfitting data
  • Explore techniques for improving your machine-learning models or data extraction

MDA Explained: The Model Driven Architecture-Practice and Promise
MDA Explained: The Model Driven Architecture-Practice and Promise
Experienced application developers often invest more time in building models than they do in actually writing code. Why? Well-constructed models make it easier to deliver large, complex enterprise systems on time and within budget. Now, a new framework advanced by the Object Management Group (OMG) allows developers to build systems according to...
Refactoring to Patterns (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series)
Refactoring to Patterns (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series)

In 1994, Design Patterns changed the landscape of object-oriented development by introducing classic solutions to recurring design problems. In 1999, Refactoring revolutionized design by introducing an effective process for improving code. With the highly anticipated Refactoring to Patterns, Joshua...

Machine Learning, Neural and Statistical Classification (Ellis Horwood Series in Artificial Intelligence)
Machine Learning, Neural and Statistical Classification (Ellis Horwood Series in Artificial Intelligence)
The aim of this book is to provide an up-to-date review of different approaches to classification,
compare their performance on a wide range of challenging data-sets, and draw
conclusions on their applicability to realistic industrial problems.

Before describing the contents, we first need to define what we mean by

Virtual Machines: Versatile Platforms for Systems and Processes (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design)
Virtual Machines: Versatile Platforms for Systems and Processes (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design)
Virtual Machine technology applies the concept of virtualization to an entire machine, circumventing real machine compatibility constraints and hardware resource constraints to enable a higher degree of software portability and flexibility. Virtual machines are rapidly becoming an essential element in computer system design. They provide system...
JavaFX: Developing Rich Internet Applications (Java Series)
JavaFX: Developing Rich Internet Applications (Java Series)
It is not often that you get the chance to witness (let alone participate in!) the birth of a truly disruptive technology. We are now at a juncture where information is pervasive—there is a convergence that will allow us to seamlessly move from one information source to another as we conduct our daily lives. Whether we are operating our smart...
Architecture Principles: The Cornerstones of Enterprise Architecture (The Enterprise Engineering Series)
Architecture Principles: The Cornerstones of Enterprise Architecture (The Enterprise Engineering Series)

When enterprise architects try to explain to people who are not enterprise architects what it is they do for a living, they almost invariably resort to using an analogy with the architecture of buildings, and describe enterprise architecture as a ‘kind of blueprint’. While this analogy may be helpful in conveying a general sense...
