6 Metrics You Need to Optimize for Performance in Machine Learning - DZone AI

#artificialintelligence 

There are many metrics to measure the performance of your machine learning model depending on the type of machine learning you are looking to conduct. In this article, we take a look at performance measures for classification and regression models and discuss which is better-optimized. Sometimes the metric to look at will vary according to the problem that is initially being solved. The True Positive Rate, also called Recall, is the go-to performance measure in binary/non-binary classification problems. Most of the time -- if not all of the time -- we are only interested in correctly predicting one class.
