From Selecting the best Machine Learning algorithm for your regression problem by George Seif

…rformance of different ML algorithms strongly depends on the size and structure of your data. Thus, the correct choice of algorithm often remains unclear unless we test out our algorithms directly through plain old trial and error.

…e “No Free Lunch” theorem which basically states that no one ML algorithm is best for all problems. The performance of different ML algorithms strongly depends on the size and structure of your data.

…s made a significant contribution to our ability to attack problems with complex unstructured data. Machine learning continues to represent the world’s frontier of technological progress and innovation. It’s much more than a crack in the wall with a shiny new frame.

…a were challenging, at best. Trainable CNNs and LSTMs alone were a huge leap forward on that front. This has yielded considerable progress in fields such as computer vision, natural language processing, speech transcription, and has enabled huge improvement in technologies like face recognition, autonomous vehicles, and conversational AI.

…ey are not statistical techniques at all). If you don’t believe me, try telling a statistician that your model was overfitting, and ask them if they think it’s a good idea to randomly drop half of your model’s 100 million parameters.

These innovations have been central to the development of high-performing deep nets, and yet they don’t remotely line up with traditional statistical techniques (probably because they are not statistical techniques at all). If you don’t believe me, try telling…
