English | 2024 | ISBN: 978-1835464946 | 176 Pages | PDF, EPUB | 22 MB

Use active machine learning with Python to improve the accuracy of predictive models, streamline the data analysis process, and adapt to evolving data trends, fostering innovation and progress across diverse fields

Key Features

  • Learn how to implement a pipeline for optimal model creation from large datasets and at lower costs
  • Gain profound insights within your data while achieving greater efficiency and speed
  • Apply your knowledge to real-world use cases and solve complex ML problems

Building accurate machine learning models requires quality data-lots of it. However, for most teams, assembling massive datasets is time-consuming, expensive, or downright impossible. Led by Margaux Masson-Forsythe, a seasoned ML engineer and advocate for surgical data science and climate AI advancements, this hands-on guide to active machine learning demonstrates how to train robust models with just a fraction of the data using Python’s powerful active learning tools.

You’ll master the fundamental techniques of active learning, such as membership query synthesis, stream-based sampling, and pool-based sampling and gain insights for designing and implementing active learning algorithms with query strategy and Human-in-the-Loop frameworks. Exploring various active machine learning techniques, you’ll learn how to enhance the performance of computer vision models like image classification, object detection, and semantic segmentation and delve into a machine AL method for selecting the most informative frames for labeling large videos, addressing duplicated data. You’ll also assess the effectiveness and efficiency of active machine learning systems through performance evaluation.

By the end of the book, you’ll be able to enhance your active learning projects by leveraging Python libraries, frameworks, and commonly used tools.
