Regression, decision trees, neural networks—along with many other supervised learning techniques—provide powerful predictive insights. Once built, the models can produce key indicators to optimize the allocation of organizational resources.
New users of these established techniques are often impressed with how easy it all seems to be. Modeling software to build these models is widely available but often results in disappointing results. Many fail to even recognize that proper problem definition was the problem. They likely conclude that the data was not capable of better performance.
The deployment phase includes proper model interpretation and looking for clues that the model will perform well on unseen data. Although the predictive power of these machine-learning models can be very impressive, there is no benefit unless they inform value-focused actions. Models must be deployed in an automated fashion to continually support decision-making for residual impact. The instructor will show how to interpret supervised models with an eye toward decisioning automation.
In this half-day seminar, Keith McCormick will overview the two most important and foundational techniques in supervised machine learning, and explain why 70-80% or more of everyday problems faced in established industries can be addressed with one particular machine learning strategy. The focus will be on highly practical techniques for maximizing your results whether you are brand new to predictive analytics or you’ve made some attempts but have been disappointed in the results so far. Veteran users of these techniques will also benefit because a comparison will be made between these traditional techniques and some features of newer techniques. We will explore that while tempting, the newer techniques are rarely the best fit except in a handful of niche application areas that many organizations will not face (at least not in the short term). Participants will leave with specific ideas to apply to their current and future projects.
