What is a Support Vector Machine?

    Most neophytes, who begin to put their hands to Machine Learning, start with regression and classification algorithms naturally. These algos are uncomplicated and easy to follow. Yet, it is necessary to think one step ahead to clutch the concepts of machine learning better. There are a lot more concepts to learn in machine learning, which may not be as rudimentary as regression or classification techniques, but can help us answer different intricate cases. So, today let us get familiar with one such algorithm, the Support Vector Machine or SVM. What is a Support Vector Machine? Let us walk… Read More

The Machine Learning Lifecycle and MLOps: Building and Operationalizing ML Models (Part I)

Machine learning was supposed to make things easy by computerizing human cognition. But it made life harder than ever for the data teams tasked with implementing it. A rising number of enterprises implement machine learning (ML) to improve revenue and operations as they digitally transform their businesses. But ML introduces operational complexities and risks that need careful attention. Data teams must holistically manage the ML lifecycle to make their projects efficient and effective. This blog kicks off a series that examines the ML lifecycle, which spans (1) data and feature engineering, (2) model development, and (3) ML operations (MLOps). This… Read More
