Testing a Data Science Model

Laveena Ramchandani

11:15-11:45 CEST Thursday 30th September

Data is the new gold. Everyone is excited about Data Science and Machine Learning models. But there isn’t much exposure to the world of Data Science as a Tester.

In this talk, we will go through my journey of discovering data science model testing and how I contributed value in a field I have never tested intending to help inspire testers to explore data science models.

Together we will understand the background of data science and how data plays a vital role in models? How to train a Data Science model keeping different personas in mind? How will we bring processes and strategies to make sure we capture the right output results, and the consumers still benefit from this? In a nutshell, making sure the model’s quality is good and we have confidence in what we provide to consumers.

By the end of this talk, you will be able to explore testing models and how to make sure the quality of a model is providing the team with enough confidence and helping a business.
