The Interpretation of Loss Functions

Date: Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

Presented by: Daniel Shank, Data Scientist, Talla

About: This course will be led by Daniel Shank, Data Scientist @ Talla, and is great for anyone looking to dive deeper into machine learning, who works as a data scientist or is interested in learning more about data science in general.

Machine learning and statistics both solve problems by finding minds with the best fit to data. But how ‘best fit’ is defined can vary wildly, and it can be difficult to figure out what is happening when we choose a model to minimize a loss function. In this course I’m going to talk about common loss functions, how they are used, and how we can use statistics to interpret what they mean. Register Here!
