What are some ways to Boost Precision and Recall in Machine Learning?

Sensitivity vs Specificity?


In machine learning, recall is the ability of the model to find all relevant instances in the data while precision is the ability of the model to correctly identify only the relevant instances. A high recall means that most relevant results are returned while a high precision means that most of the returned results are relevant. Ideally, you want a model with both high recall and high precision but often there is a trade-off between the two. In this blog post, we will explore some ways to increase recall or precision in machine learning.

What are some ways to increase precision or recall in machine learning?


There are two main ways to increase recall:

by increasing the number of false positives or by decreasing the number of false negatives. To increase the number of false positives, you can lower your threshold for what constitutes a positive prediction. For example, if you are trying to predict whether or not an email is spam, you might lower the threshold for what constitutes spam so that more emails are classified as spam. This will result in more false positives (emails that are not actually spam being classified as spam) but will also increase recall (more actual spam emails being classified as spam).

To decrease the number of false negatives,

you can increase your threshold for what constitutes a positive prediction. For example, going back to the spam email prediction example, you might raise the threshold for what constitutes spam so that fewer emails are classified as spam. This will result in fewer false negatives (actual spam emails not being classified as spam) but will also decrease recall (fewer actual spam emails being classified as spam).

There are two main ways to increase precision:

by increasing the number of true positives or by decreasing the number of true negatives. To increase the number of true positives, you can raise your threshold for what constitutes a positive prediction. For example, using the spam email prediction example again, you might raise the threshold for what constitutes spam so that fewer emails are classified as spam. This will result in more true positives (emails that are actually spam being classified as spam) but will also decrease precision (more non-spam emails being classified as spam).

To decrease the number of true negatives,

you can lower your threshold for what constitutes a positive prediction. For example, going back to the spam email prediction example once more, you might lower the threshold for what constitutes spam so that more emails are classified as spam. This will result in fewer true negatives (emails that are not actually spam not being classified as spam) but will also decrease precision (more non-spam emails being classified as spam).

What are some ways to increase precision or recall in machine learning?

To summarize,

there are a few ways to increase precision or recall in machine learning. One way is to use a different evaluation metric. For example, if you are trying to maximize precision, you can use the F1 score, which is a combination of precision and recall. Another way to increase precision or recall is to adjust the threshold for classification. This can be done by changing the decision boundary or by using a different algorithm altogether.

Sensitivity vs Specificity

In machine learning, sensitivity and specificity are two measures of the performance of a model. Sensitivity is the proportion of true positives that are correctly predicted by the model, while specificity is the proportion of true negatives that are correctly predicted by the model.

Google Colab For Machine Learning

State of the Google Colab for ML (October 2022)

Google introduced computing units, which you can purchase just like any other cloud computing unit you can from AWS or Azure etc. With Pro you get 100, and with Pro+ you get 500 computing units. GPU, TPU and option of High-RAM effects how much computing unit you use hourly. If you don’t have any computing units, you can’t use “Premium” tier gpus (A100, V100) and even P100 is non-viable.

If you are looking for an all-in-one solution to help you prepare for the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification Exam, look no further than this AWS Cloud Practitioner CCP CLF-C02 book

Google Colab Pro+ comes with Premium tier GPU option, meanwhile in Pro if you have computing units you can randomly connect to P100 or T4. After you use all of your computing units, you can buy more or you can use T4 GPU for the half or most of the time (there can be a lot of times in the day that you can’t even use a T4 or any kinds of GPU). In free tier, offered gpus are most of the time K80 and P4, which performs similar to a 750ti (entry level gpu from 2014) with more VRAM.

For your consideration, T4 uses around 2, and A100 uses around 15 computing units hourly.
Based on the current knowledge, computing units costs for GPUs tend to fluctuate based on some unknown factor.

Considering those:

  1. For hobbyists and (under)graduate school duties, it will be better to use your own gpu if you have something with more than 4 gigs of VRAM and better than 750ti, or atleast purchase google pro to reach T4 even if you have no computing units remaining.
  2. For small research companies, and non-trivial research at universities, and probably for most of the people Colab now probably is not a good option.
  3. Colab Pro+ can be considered if you want Pro but you don’t sit in front of your computer, since it disconnects after 90 minutes of inactivity in your computer. But this can be overcomed with some scripts to some extend. So for most of the time Colab Pro+ is not a good option.

If you have anything more to say, please let me know so I can edit this post with them. Thanks!

Conclusion:


In machine learning, precision and recall trade off against each other; increasing one often decreases the other. There is no single silver bullet solution for increasing either precision or recall; it depends on your specific use case which one is more important and which methods will work best for boosting whichever metric you choose. In this blog post, we explored some methods for increasing either precision or recall; hopefully this gives you a starting point for improving your own models!

  • [P] A Cry for Help. A high schooler struggling to finish their project which started months ago.
    by /u/1600_SAT (Machine Learning) on May 26, 2024 at 5:51 pm

    So, I started this Machine Learning project with a professor. The professor excels in Analytical Chemistry. I went to the professor asking for something to do because I wanted to do something in this field of Machine Learning and i knew him. So, he game me a project of building Machine Learning model to detect microplastic automatically. I worked for months to first learn about microplastics and then annotate them. I had ZERO Knowledge in ML but I was really good at programming and knew python really well. So, it wasn't a problem of programming language but finding the right tools to do something. Like a roadmap. However, I persisted and continued. Finished annotating with labelme. Did the preprocessing and started training in Google Colab. The problem is, I never get to train all 25 epochs. The RAM gets full each time I do it. There is like no way to do it completely. And the accuracy is below par. around 0.5. I tried everything and finally after some post-processing I could get some good result for binary classification using U-NET and VGG16. However, now I'm struggling with multiclass classification to classify different types of microplastics. No matter how much I try I can't get past some iterations. I have only 780 images. Shouldn't google colab be able to handle this? I need help. I feel extremely bad because I spent months on this project and there is no output. The professor not being from ML background probably thinks I'm making excuses but I literally have no mentor and can't move forward. I've done preprocessing, trained my model in batches but no result whatsoever. Please help me out here. Anyone willing to look at my work and give feedbacks? Do I need colab pro? I don't have the money for it, also, my country doesn't allow any transaction in USD online. I'd have to go to bank and do it which would take a complete day and not sure even if I'll be able to do it. Any way I can get resources? I am willing to work for free for anyone with my web dev skill if you're willing to help me get the required resources and guidance. Thank you. submitted by /u/1600_SAT [link] [comments]

  • [P] ReRecall: I tried to recreate Microsoft's Recall using open-source models & tools
    by /u/Abdoo2 (Machine Learning) on May 26, 2024 at 4:08 pm

    Recall sounds to me like a privacy nightmare, so I thought I might give it a try to make something similar using only open source components. Here is the code if you want to play around with it: https://github.com/AbdBarho/ReRecall Overall it went better than I expected, I use `mss` to take screenshots of the monitor(s), and use ollama and llava and mxbai embed to generate descriptions and embeddings of the screenshots, and then chromadb for storage and search. There is definitely huge room for improvement here: There are plenty of hallucinations in the generated descriptions of screenshots, this could be a combination of the size the MLLM used to generate the descriptions (I use a very small model because I have a rusty 1060), or because the screenshots are very high in resolutions (no resizing is done after a screenshot). The search is very basic, it just matches the embeddings of the query text with the embeddings of the screenshots, a potential improvement could be to use the model to enrich the user query with more information before embedding it for search. I am fairly certain that Microsoft does not rely solely on screenshots as I do, but also captures of individual app windows, and also extracts meta information like window title, maybe even the text content of the window (the same text used by text-to-speech programs for the visually impaired), these could definitely improve the results. Do you have any further ideas on what could be changed? Example (cherrypicked): Screen on the right with the corresponding ReRecall usage on the left submitted by /u/Abdoo2 [link] [comments]

  • [R] Why In-Context Learning Transformers are Tabular Data Classifiers
    by /u/FelixdenBreejen (Machine Learning) on May 26, 2024 at 8:09 am

    We are introducing TabForestPFN, which is an in-context learning transformer that can predict tabular data classification tasks. In the past, tabular data classification was dominated by tree-based algorithms like XGBoost and CatBoost, but now we are finally closing this gap using pretrained transformers. https://preview.redd.it/c3unlgi1cq2d1.png?width=2690&format=png&auto=webp&s=cd414509a31a189df288668e928d52e5723df3fc In-context learning transformers were introduced to tabular data classification by Hollman et al. (ICLR, 2023) in TabPFN. This work is limited by the GPU memory, so it only considers datasets with fewer than a thousand observations. We improve their model by adding a fine-tuning stage, which circumvents the GPU memory limitation. Also, we introduce an additional synthetic data forest generator to further boost the performance. The result is TabForestPFN. The focus of the TabForestPFN paper is about why we can pretrain on tabular data. In language and vision, pretraining can learn grammar and textures, so pretraining makes sense. But in tabular data, the datasets in pretraining share no features or labels with the real-world datasets of interest, so what could it even learn? In the paper, we argue in-context learning transformers learn the ability to create complex decision boundaries. If you are interested in the reasoning, give it a read. Code is available at https://github.com/FelixdenBreejen/TabForestPFN With the code, you can reproduce all our pretraining, experiments and analysis, and it also includes some basic examples for you to immediately use the classifier on your own datasets. Below are the results of TabForestPFN on two tabular data classification benchmarks. I am the author, so if there are any questions, feel free to ask. https://preview.redd.it/1tavhybhzq2d1.png?width=1174&format=png&auto=webp&s=214fb394a229544dfd8b44677d7880852c5d222f https://preview.redd.it/9tg9z9tobq2d1.png?width=832&format=png&auto=webp&s=9fd3c732be8d5e18c8f56bb2b0e1c94796968056 submitted by /u/FelixdenBreejen [link] [comments]

    Why do most ML papers use all verb tenses in the present tense like MLA format while using a citation style or reference section as APA style? In particular, even though academic societies such as ICML explicitly say that they follow the APA style, most of the papers' verb tenses do not seem to be followed by instructions in the APA guide to write the past, present, and future appropriately. submitted by /u/cosmoquester [link] [comments]

  • [D] Specific to ViT(visual transformers) are there any learnable params in patch embeddings?
    by /u/elongatedpepe (Machine Learning) on May 26, 2024 at 7:13 am

    I'm trying to understand where exactly in ViT are the learnable parameters. First step is to convert patch to patch embeddings to feed into n/w so we add a simple linear transformation (FCN) for dims reduction and matrix->vector. What is learnt here? Are there any weights? Or is it just shrinking the 2d patch input to a 1d vector. Since these patches are processed(linear transformed) in parallel, they have no idea on other patch information. People say patch to patch interaction happen in attention layer BUT there are no learnable params in attention layer it's just transpose and multiple query key patch. Does the backprop in attention layer loss cause weights to change in patch embedding layer?? Also, why do they call as linear transformation of patch embedding? Aren't they adding any activation function, it's supposed to be non linear transformation right? submitted by /u/elongatedpepe [link] [comments]

I'm unsure of where to go from here. I study ML/AI in school but I've been having a hard time making the best decision on how to actually apply these tools in practice. Firstly, I'm unsure of what dataset to use, I found a dataset of online poker game logs which might useful.
