Abstract: Over the years we have seen the evolution of thumb rules to choose the Machine Learning style for a problem - supervised classification vs. regression problems, vs. unsupervised clustering problems. But we will challenge typical formulations and their assumptions. Taking several examples from e-commerce and BFSI domains, we will discuss how a problem can be solved using multiple ML formulations which can also be blended to improve results. Additionally, the dependent variables and the set of features for the Machine Learning model are choices that significantly impact the performance of the machine learning model. Finally, we will discuss how for a machine learning solution to create maximum impact, the model objective should be aligned with the business objective.
