Data cleaning is a critically important step in any machine learning project.In tabular data, there are many different statistical analysis and data visualization techniques you...

Defining Neural Networks

Supervised learning in machine learning can be described in terms of function approximation.Given a dataset comprised of inputs and outputs, we assume that there...

Imbalanced Multiclass Classification with Glass Dataset

Multiclass classification problems are those where a label must be predicted, but there are more than two labels that may be predicted.These are challenging...

Classification Algorithms for Imbalanced Datasets

Outliers or anomalies are rare examples that do not fit in with the rest of the data.Identifying outliers in data is referred to as...

Configuring Optional Inputs for WhizzML Scripts

WhizzML, the powerful Domain-Specific Language (DSL) developed by BigML, is used not only to automate Machine Learning (ML) workflows but also to implement high-level...

Detecting Mammography Microcalcifications

Cancer detection is a popular example of an imbalanced classification problem because there are often significantly more cases of non-cancer than actual cancer.A standard...

Encodings for Categorical Data

Machine learning models require all input and output variables to be numeric.This means that if your data contains categorical data, you must encode it...

How to Scale Data With Outliers for Machine Learning

Many machine learning algorithms perform better when numerical input variables are scaled to a standard range. This includes algorithms that...
