The audience remained engaged throughout the presentation & fascinated by such rich knowledge.
Jesus Prada further elaborated on a very important concept in Machine learning ‘Accuracy Vs Interpretability trade-off’
“In Machine Learning, the most accurate models tend to be the most complex ones, for this reason, best models are usually the less interpretable ones”
This event was indeed enriching and captivating. Stay tuned with the AI Club for our upcoming events!
