Presented by TOPBOTS // April 25, 2018 // Issue 90
Hi everyone! Last week we set up social communities and discussion forums for TOPBOTS readers to engage with each other to share content and knowledge. Join the conversation at Applied AI For Business, our Facebook group
One topic of discussion we covered this week is how business leaders should evaluate the performance of machine learning models. Often you'll see the media report that "an AI was able to achieve 95% accuracy" on some task, without any further clarification.

A common mistake made by non-technical executives is to over-focus on misleading metrics such as accuracy without understanding the importance of other evaluation metrics like precision & recall. Case in point: If 1% of the population has a disease, then a naive model that predicts everyone is healthy is 99% accurate, but the recall numbers would show you the model is worthless for your intended task of identifying patients who need treatment.

If you're not already familiar with precision and recall, here's a beginner-level article that covers the tradeoffs between accuracy, precision, and recall and also goes into details about F-Scores and ROC Curves. If you prefer to learn from video, here's a YouTube video that makes the concepts clear too. 

Got any other ideas for how we can improve TOPBOTS for you? Just shoot us a note at community@topbots.com.
