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).

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

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!

  • Engineers talk about coding "close to the metal". Is the DS equivalent "close to the math"?
    by /u/MindlessTime (Data Science) on May 28, 2024 at 8:50 pm

    "Close to the metal" refers to low-level programming languages that give (or require) control over things like memory management that high-level languages like python abstract away. I started off in DS with a lot of out-of-the-box implementations of common algorithms, almost exclusively for prediction problems. It was a lot of `import sklearn`, tune a model, serve the scores to a service or stakeholder. As I've grown, I've started tackling more problems that are beyond simple prediction. These vary from causal inference to constrained optimization problems. Sometimes I'll define a problem mathematically and it's just a basic optimization. I now find myself digging into methods and libraries that were previously abstracted away by auto-ML tools like scikit-learn. I'll even end up re-writing a simple gradient descent algo because I need it to optimize a value that isn't strictly an ML model. Consequentially, I've started to believe that the DS equivalent of being "close to the metal" is being "close to the math". I'm not sayng "only real DS know the math" by any means. For something like NLP or CV especially, it would be futile to re-define and re-code that much complexity from scratch. But the abstractions of, e.g. scikit-learn eventually feel like they're holding me back from tackling a larger set of problems. Does anyone else feel this way? I'd love people's thoughts and experience. submitted by /u/MindlessTime [link] [comments]

  • Unemployment Penalty
    by /u/Moscow_Gordon (Data Science) on May 28, 2024 at 4:41 pm

    Due to outsourcing my job is at risk and I've been looking around. I'm mainly concerned about layoff risk, otherwise pretty happy with my current job. Have been getting some interviews here and there but not much traction past early stages, and getting the sense that I won't find anything I like that pays as well in the current market. I'm pretty reluctant to take something that pays less, but I do wonder how badly being unemployed would hurt my prospects. Interested in people's thoughts on what the size of the penalty is for being unemployed. How much harder would it make the job search? submitted by /u/Moscow_Gordon [link] [comments]

  • DSA Course - Worth It
    by /u/Jealous-Condition560 (Data Science) on May 28, 2024 at 3:20 pm

    Recently completed my undergrad with a degree in Data Science. I'm taking a year off school while working as a People Analytics Analyst before starting the MCS with an emphasis in ML from Georgia Tech. My undergraduate program did not require me to take a Data Structures and Algorithms course. Wondering if it would be worth it to just take an online DSA course in the year that I'm taking between my undergraduate degree and masters program. MCS at Georgia Tech doesn't include a DSA course, but I am assuming the conepts will be helpful. Do any of you experienced Data Scientists have opinions on this course work? submitted by /u/Jealous-Condition560 [link] [comments]

  • Do hiring managers care about certifications?

  • Is it worth it to keep applying to DA/DS jobs right now, or should I move to a different field and try to come back when the market is better?
    by /u/son_of_tv_c (Data Science) on May 27, 2024 at 8:56 pm

    Edit: I think a lot of people are missing the point of my rambling stream of consciousness thread. I can't get an analyst job despite being qualified. I don't think it's my resume or background. What can I do in the meantime while I wait for the market to recover? MS in stats, 7 years in various analyst positions. I was laid off two months ago and have over 100 applications out, only got two interviews. I don't think that my resume is the problem because it's the same resume I used back in 2020 and 2022 when I took career steps. A friend was able to get me an interview with his company, they were impressed but ultimately went with an internal candidate. That was one of the interviews, the other was with a state agency that also seemed impressed, but ghosted me. To me, it seems clear that it's the market, not me. Or that the bias against people who are currently not working is real (even though it's not my fault at all). Luckily I've got unemployment for now but I need a job soon. My plan was to jump on a DS position cause I think I should be more than qualified for one by now, but I can't even get a call back for something below what I was doing 5 years ago. I got other options but they're not great. I worked at an IT help desk in college and right after and I had tons of interest from companies in those kinds of roles (that I didn't want at the time). No idea if those have been replaced by AI or outsourced since then. Hell I'm even considering getting my CDL and driving a truck or seeing if my friends who work in construction can get me some menial labor job. I've been holding out trying to get an analyst job or even by some miracle a DS career step job but clearly that isn't happening. Should I just redirect my efforts elsewhere? Any suggestions into what fields with better prospects my current skills may me transferrable to? Thanks. submitted by /u/son_of_tv_c [link] [comments]

  • Building models with recruiting data
    by /u/Understands-Irony (Data Science) on May 26, 2024 at 8:33 pm

    Hello! I recently finished a Masters in CS and have an opportunity to build some models with recruiting data. I’m a little stuck on where to start however - I have lots of data about individual candidates (~100k) and lots of jobs the company has filled and is trying to fill. Some models I’d like to make: Based on a few bits of data about the open role (seniority, stage of company, type of role, etc.), how can I predict which of our ~100K candidates would be a fit for it? My idea is to train a model based on past connections between candidates and jobs, but I’m not sure how to structure the data exactly or what model to apply to it. Any suggestions? Another, simpler problem: I’m interested in clustering roles to identify which are similar based on the seniority/function/industry of the role and by the candidates attached to them. Is there a good clustering algorithm I should use and method of visualizing this? Also, I’m not sure how to structure data like a list of candidate_ids. If this isn’t the right forum / place to ask this, I’d appreciate suggestions! submitted by /u/Understands-Irony [link] [comments]

  • Do you use feature transformations in real world (ranking, sqrt, log etc.)?
    by /u/maybenexttime82 (Data Science) on May 26, 2024 at 7:38 pm

    I understand their usage and that the models can greatly benefit from them (they can help models better capture "hidden" nonlinearities, help with outliers etc.), but since I am not working in the field yet my concern is that when you communicate with stakeholders do you report that you were using those? Say you have tabular data and doing simple linear regression model. submitted by /u/maybenexttime82 [link] [comments]

  • Multiple-outputs regression
    by /u/Rich-Effect2152 (Data Science) on May 26, 2024 at 1:14 pm

    I am a data scientist working in the renewable energy industry, specializing in photovoltaic power generation forecasting. Every morning at 7:00 AM, I need to predict the photovoltaic power output for 96 points for the next day. Why 96 points? Because there is a forecast value every 15 minutes. Previously, I used a LightGBM model, where I would first calculate features and then invoke the model for each 15-minute interval. Essentially, this involved calling the model 96 times since these 96 points are independent in the forecasting process. Now, I want to develop a multiple-outputs model that treats the power values of these 96 points as 96 columns of labels. After researching, I found that I could use the CatBoost model for this purpose. Do you think this method is feasible? Or is there a better approach? submitted by /u/Rich-Effect2152 [link] [comments]

  • Most stats heavy DS position?

    I have a strong background in math/stats (MSc Stats) and good communication skills (no accent, good personality, good looking :), etc.). I'm trying to figure out what fields of DS I would be best suited for in this competitive market with people from all over the world (Asia) aiming for the same jobs. I've noticed some DS jobs are SWE who pushes and models, some work directly with training analyzing model outputs, some work closer as a direct statistician, etc. I want to find what is the job title/role I should be targeting where I would have a competitive chance and fits my strengths the best. I feel like the role I am looking for is "Product Data Scientist" or "Decision Scientist". I currently work as a DS, but it's mostly managing models and fulfilling use cases that Deloitte built before. I want to find what is the job title/role I should be targeting where I would have a competitive advantage with a strong math/stat background. What job titles should someone like me try to find as a "dream job" with this background and passion for DS? submitted by /u/LeaguePrototype [link] [comments]
