The Zen Guide to Getting Your Data Ready for Machine Learning

Prerequisite: None

Tech Lead, Professional Services


Machine learning is an art, and key to the art is getting your data into an appropriate form. In this talk, I delineate 12 Zen principles to keep in mind as you prepare your data for machine learning. These cover the gamut from best practices such as seeing things the way they are (to not let wishful thinking get between you and a proper examination of all your assumptions) to pragmatic advice such as ways to get over problems of insufficient examples. Together, these principles lead to a mindful process that allows you to get the most out of your data.
