I have written another blogpost about Looking beyond accuracy to improve trust in machine learning at my company codecentric’s blog: Traditional machine learning workflows focus heavily on model training and optimization; the best model is usually chosen via performance measures like accuracy or error and we tend to assume that a model is good enough for deployment if it passes certain thresholds of these performance criteria. Why a model makes the predictions it makes, however, is generally neglected.

Recently, I announced my workshop on Deep Learning with Keras and TensorFlow. The next dates for it are January 18th and 19th in Solingen, Germany. You can register now by following this link: https://www.codecentric.de/schulung/deep-learning-mit-keras-und-tensorflow If any non-German-speaking people want to attend, I’m happy to give the course in English! Contact me if you have further questions. As a little bonus, I am also sharing my sketch notes from a Podcast I listened to when first getting into Keras:
