Training data collection strategies are often the most important and overlooked part of deploying real-world machine learning algorithms. Lukas Biewald explains why active learning is the best way to collect training data and can make the difference between a failed research project and a deployed production algorithm. Lukas shares active learning strategies across domains from search relevance to self-driving cars and explains how fine-tuning deep learning and other techniques are useful in a world of limited training data.
Lukas Biewald is the founder and chief data scientist of Weights & Biases, a data enrichment platform that taps into an on-demand workforce to help companies collect training data and do human-in-the-loop machine learning. Previously, he led the Search Relevance team for Yahoo Japan and worked as a senior data scientist at Powerset. Lukas was recognized by Inc. magazine as a 30 under 30. Lukas holds a BS in mathematics and an MS in computer science from Stanford University. He is also an expert Go player.
