Re: It is cheaper to do ML wrong than it is to do it right

One of the critical steps in QA for any new system or feature is the comparison of actual results to expected results. If the corporate objectives of ML is to find the unexpected insight, how will incorrect unexpected ML outcomes be sifted out from the set of all possible unexpected outcomes?
