#3D2 - Machine Learning - The Limitations of Machine Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Machine Learning (ML) is a popular topic in the research world. It has spread from basic computer science research to many other disciplines and RSEs are increasingly encouraged to be familiar with applying it to their projects.

In this talk I will discuss various limitations of ML, including how it can augment human bias, the problem with interpreting complex deep learning models and how real-world data can harm your model.

I'll end with some tips on how to tell if using ML is even the right solution for your project, and some alternatives for if it's not.
