Ready to dive DEEP into predictive modeling? You’ve come to the right podcast. In this episode, Ben and Michael sit down with Maarit Widmann, a data scientist whose bread and butter is making models more accurate. They discuss how to effectively use confusion matrices and other tools, why you need to avoid THIS misconception to get accurate churn rates, and the BIG question you should be asking if your data seems off.

“If your model is failing, it’s probably been adding up for two weeks already. Instead of monitoring the accuracy, monitor the features. Ask ‘is the data changing?’”
