Ensemble Machine Learning With Python (7-Day Mini-Course)


Ensemble learning refers to machine learning models that combine the predictions from two or more models. Ensembles are an advanced approach to machine learning that are often used when the capability and skill of the predictions are more important than using a simple and understandable model. As such, they are often used by top and winning participants in machine learning competitions like the One Million Dollar Netflix Prize and Kaggle Competitions. Modern machine learning libraries like scikit-learn Python provide a suite of advanced ensemble learning methods that are easy to configure and use correctly without data leakage, a common concern when using ensemble algorithms. In this crash course, you will discover how you can get started and confidently bring ensemble learning algorithms to your predictive modeling project with Python in seven days.

This course is a perfect fit for you. This course will take you step by step into the world of Machine Learning. Machine Learning is the study of computer algorithms that automates analytical model building. It is a branch of Artificial Intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention. Machine Learning is actively being used today, perhaps in many more places than one world expects.

Machine Learning Models Can Predict Persistence of Early Childhood Asthma - Pulmonology Advisor


Machine learning modules can be trained with the use of electronic health record (EHR) data to differentiate between transient and persistent cases of early childhood asthma, according the results of an analysis published in PLoS One. Researchers conducted a retrospective cohort study using data derived from the Pediatric Big Data (PBD) resource at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) -- a pediatric tertiary academic medical center located in Pennsylvania. The researchers sought to develop machine learning modules that could be used to identify individuals who were diagnosed with asthma at aged 5 years or younger whose symptoms will continue to persist and who will thus continue to experience asthma-related visits. They trained 5 machine learning modules to distinguish between individuals without any subsequent asthma-related visits (transient asthma diagnosis) from those who did experience asthma-related visits from 5 to 10 years of age (persistent asthma diagnosis), based on clinical information available in these children up to 5 years of age. The PBD resource used in the current study included data obtained from the CHOP Care Network -- a primary care network of more than 30 sites -- and from CHOP Specialty Care and Surgical Centers.

What Emotions Make One or Five Stars? Understanding Ratings of Online Product Reviews by Sentiment Analysis and XAI Artificial Intelligence

When people buy products online, they primarily base their decisions on the recommendations of others given in online reviews. The current work analyzed these online reviews by sentiment analysis and used the extracted sentiments as features to predict the product ratings by several machine learning algorithms. These predictions were disentangled by various meth-ods of explainable AI (XAI) to understand whether the model showed any bias during prediction. Study 1 benchmarked these algorithms (knn, support vector machines, random forests, gradient boosting machines, XGBoost) and identified random forests and XGBoost as best algorithms for predicting the product ratings. In Study 2, the analysis of global feature importance identified the sentiment joy and the emotional valence negative as most predictive features. Two XAI visualization methods, local feature attributions and partial dependency plots, revealed several incorrect prediction mechanisms on the instance-level. Performing the benchmarking as classification, Study 3 identified a high no-information rate of 64.4% that indicated high class imbalance as underlying reason for the identified problems. In conclusion, good performance by machine learning algorithms must be taken with caution because the dataset, as encountered in this work, could be biased towards certain predictions. This work demonstrates how XAI methods reveal such prediction bias.

A Comparative Study of Machine Learning Models for Predicting the State of Reactive Mixing Machine Learning

Accurate predictions of reactive mixing are critical for many Earth and environmental science problems. To investigate mixing dynamics over time under different scenarios, a high-fidelity, finite-element-based numerical model is built to solve the fast, irreversible bimolecular reaction-diffusion equations to simulate a range of reactive-mixing scenarios. A total of 2,315 simulations are performed using different sets of model input parameters comprising various spatial scales of vortex structures in the velocity field, time-scales associated with velocity oscillations, the perturbation parameter for the vortex-based velocity, anisotropic dispersion contrast, and molecular diffusion. Outputs comprise concentration profiles of the reactants and products. The inputs and outputs of these simulations are concatenated into feature and label matrices, respectively, to train 20 different machine learning (ML) emulators to approximate system behavior. The 20 ML emulators based on linear methods, Bayesian methods, ensemble learning methods, and multilayer perceptron (MLP), are compared to assess these models. The ML emulators are specifically trained to classify the state of mixing and predict three quantities of interest (QoIs) characterizing species production, decay, and degree of mixing. Linear classifiers and regressors fail to reproduce the QoIs; however, ensemble methods (classifiers and regressors) and the MLP accurately classify the state of reactive mixing and the QoIs. Among ensemble methods, random forest and decision-tree-based AdaBoost faithfully predict the QoIs. At run time, trained ML emulators are $\approx10^5$ times faster than the high-fidelity numerical simulations. Speed and accuracy of the ensemble and MLP models facilitate uncertainty quantification, which usually requires 1,000s of model run, to estimate the uncertainty bounds on the QoIs.

The Theory Behind Overfitting, Cross Validation, Regularization, Bagging, and Boosting: Tutorial Machine Learning

In this tutorial paper, we first define mean squared error, variance, covariance, and bias of both random variables and classification/predictor models. Then, we formulate the true and generalization errors of the model for both training and validation/test instances where we make use of the Stein's Unbiased Risk Estimator (SURE). We define overfitting, underfitting, and generalization using the obtained true and generalization errors. We introduce cross validation and two well-known examples which are $K$-fold and leave-one-out cross validations. We briefly introduce generalized cross validation and then move on to regularization where we use the SURE again. We work on both $\ell_2$ and $\ell_1$ norm regularizations. Then, we show that bootstrap aggregating (bagging) reduces the variance of estimation. Boosting, specifically AdaBoost, is introduced and it is explained as both an additive model and a maximum margin model, i.e., Support Vector Machine (SVM). The upper bound on the generalization error of boosting is also provided to show why boosting prevents from overfitting. As examples of regularization, the theory of ridge and lasso regressions, weight decay, noise injection to input/weights, and early stopping are explained. Random forest, dropout, histogram of oriented gradients, and single shot multi-box detector are explained as examples of bagging in machine learning and computer vision. Finally, boosting tree and SVM models are mentioned as examples of boosting.
