Data Science In Reality: Death By Concepts Fundamental mathematical concepts largely drive data science projects. Conceptual validation is widely used for validating machine learning models through the use of mathematical proofs. However, the need to test the model on almost real standards is often compromised due to the difficulty of replicating real life (Big or not) Data. The 'Industry' tends to validate complex data models by relevance measures and introduce a 'degree of error' to accommodate for real life implementations. This is problematic, at best. If the world of data-driven science projects is the City of Gotham, Empirical Validation is The Dark Knight. Robust Model Validation saves the city from pitfalls and covers like 'degree of error' and 'probabilistic, not accurate'. Learn: 1. Trade-offs in applying empirical research 2. Validating complex models based on practice 3. Building innovative and cutting-edge technology with close-to-perfect confidence levels 1 Hour Lecture Debarshi Chatterji
