Measuring the machine learning model’s performance is key for every successful data science project. Therefore, model feedback loops are essential to capture feedback from users and to expand your model’s training dataset. This talk will introduce the concept of model feedback to you and guide you through a framework for increasing the ROI of your data science project. Read more.
