Bias-Variance Trade-Off for Data Science & Backing Up and Wiping Out Sensitive Data Videos Are Now Online
This past week I've had some time off work as my CEO was on vacation. As a result I did 2 videos, not just 1. Here they are:
The Bias-Variance Trade-Off: when you have a model that favors a certain class or a certain set of values, you have high bias, while you have a model whose predictions are all over the place, you have high variance. Could you find a compromise between the two? And how does all this relate to the model's fitness? This video includes a few examples too, for classification and regression problems, to cement the concepts introduced.
Backing Up and Wiping Out Sensitive Data: you probably have heard of this topic and perhaps even apply it to some extent, since taking care of sensitive data is a good cyber-security habit to have, plus it's not new either. However, there is much more to it than that, like which storage media are best for back-up, how you can handle sensitive data on your computer without leaving a trace, and what software is out there that helps make that happen.
