Arun Chaganty: Debiasing natural language evaluation with humans in the loop
A significant challenge in developing systems for tasks such as knowledge base population, text summarization or question answering is simply evaluating their performance: existing fully-automatic evaluation techniques rely on an incomplete set of “gold” annotations that can not adequately cover the range of possible outputs of such systems and lead to systematic biases against many genuinely useful system improvements. In this talk, I’ll present our work on how we can eliminate this bias by incorporating on-demand human feedback without incurring the full cost of human evaluation. Our key technical innovation is the design of good statistical estimators that are able to tradeoff cost for variance reduction. We hope that our work will enable the development of better NLP systems by making unbiased natural language evaluation practical and easy to use.

Discussed in detailed about the most frequently used classification metric i.e accuracy and also covered the interesting conclusions about it.

Precision & Recall (Sensitivity)

YouTube search... ...Google search

(also called positive predictive value) is the fraction of relevant instances among the retrieved instances, while recall (also known as sensitivity) is the fraction of relevant instances that have been retrieved over the total amount of relevant instances. Both precision and recall are therefore based on an understanding and measure of relevance. Precision and recall | Wikipedia

  • Precision: measure that tells us what proportion of patients that we diagnosed as having cancer, actually had cancer. The predicted positives (People predicted as cancerous are TP and FP) and the people actually having a cancer are TP.


  • Recall or Sensitivity: measure that tells us what proportion of patients that actually had cancer was diagnosed by the algorithm as having cancer. The actual positives (People having cancer are TP and FN) and the people diagnosed by the model having a cancer are TP. (Note: FN is included because the Person actually had a cancer even though the model predicted otherwise).

Measure that tells us what proportion of patients that did NOT have cancer, were predicted by the model as non-cancerous. The actual negatives (People actually NOT having cancer are FP and TN) and the people diagnosed by us not having cancer are TN. (Note: FP is included because the Person did NOT actually have cancer even though the model predicted otherwise).

F1 Score (F-Measure)

YouTube search...

F1 Score = 2 * Precision * Recall / (Precision + Recall)

(Harmonic mean) is kind of an average when x and y are equal. But when x and y are different, then it’s closer to the smaller number as compared to the larger number. So if one number is really small between precision and recall, the F1 Score kind of raises a flag and is more closer to the smaller number than the bigger one, giving the model an appropriate score rather than just an arithmetic mean.


Performance Metrics Precision, Recall and F Score - Model Building and Validation
This video is part of an online course, Model Building and Validation.

F1 Score in Machine Learning
The F1 score, also called the F score or F measure, is a measure of a test’s accuracy. The F1 score is defined as the weighted harmonic mean of the test’s precision and recall. This score is calculated according to the formula : 2*((precision*recall)/(precision+recall)) This video explains why F1 Score is used to evaluate Machine Learning Models.

Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC)

YouTube search...

In a ROC curve the true positive rate (Sensitivity) is plotted in function of the false positive rate (100-Specificity) for different cut-off points of a parameter. a graphical plot that illustrates the diagnostic ability of a binary classifier system as its discrimination threshold is varied.

The ROC curve is created by plotting the True Positive Rate (TPR) against the False Positive Rate (FPR) at various threshold settings. The true-positive rate is also known as sensitivity, recall or probability of detection[1] in machine learning. The false-positive rate is also known as probability of false alarm[1] and can be calculated as (1 − specificity). Wikipedia

Area Under the Curve (AUC)

The area under the ROC curve ( AUC ) is a measure of how well a parameter can distinguish between two diagnostic groups (diseased/normal).

ROC Curves and Area Under the Curve (AUC) Explained
An ROC curve is the most commonly used way to visualize the performance of a binary classifier, and AUC is (arguably) the best way to summarize its performance in a single number. As such, gaining a deep understanding of ROC curves and AUC is beneficial for data scientists, machine learning practitioners, and medical researchers (among others).

Precision-Recall (PR) curves will be more informative than ROC

The Relationship Between Precision-Recall and ROC Curves | Jesse Davis & Mark Goadrich - University of Wisconsin-Madison proposes that Precision-Recall (PR) curves will be more informative than ROC when dealing with highly skewed datasets. The PR curves plot precision vs. recall (FPR). Because Precision is directly influenced by class imbalance so the Precision-recall curves are better to highlight differences between models for highly imbalanced data sets. When you compare different models with imbalanced settings, the area under the Precision-Recall curve will be more sensitive than the area under the ROC curve.

Correlation Coefficient

A correlation is about how two things change with each other. Knowing about how two things change together is the first step to prediction. The "r value" is a common way to indicate a correlation value. More specifically, it refers to the (sample) Pearson correlation, or Pearson's r. There is more than one way to calculate a correlation. Here we have touched on the case where both variables change at the same way. There are other cases where one variable may change at a different rate, but still have a clear relationship. This gives rise to what's called, non-linear relationships. What is a Correlation Coefficient? The r Value in Statistics Explained | Eric Leung - freeCodeCamp ...Code, Data, Microbiome blog

'Precision' & 'Recall'

It is clear that recall gives us information about a classifier’s performance with respect to false negatives (how many did we miss), while precision gives us information about its performance with respect to false positives(how many did we caught).

  • Precision is about being precise. So even if we managed to capture only one cancer case, and we captured it correctly, then we are 100% precise.
  • Recall is not so much about capturing cases correctly but more about capturing all cases that have “cancer” with the answer as “cancer”. So if we simply always say every case as “cancer”, we have 100% recall.

So basically if we want to focus more on:

  • minimising False Negatives, we would want our Recall to be as close to 100% as possible without precision being too bad
  • minimising False Positives, then our focus should be to make Precision as close to 100% as possible.

False Positive Rate (FPR) - How To Calculate It
Olly Tree Applications presents USMLE Biostatistics... a unique, yet easy to use study tool for the USMLE. Our 2x2 sample table allows for quick calculations of up to 25 different biostatistics. Simply enter the required data into the highlighted boxes and the solution will appear. All of the most important equations are here – from absolute risk reduction to odds ratio to specificity. As your knowledge and understanding of medical biostatistics grows, we suggest that you become accustomed to solving questions without the use of our 2x2 sample table. Also be sure to check out our flashcards, board review questions, and video lectures. Key Concept: So you want to change a patient’s current therapy because a new medication has a decreased risk of a particular side effect. That sounds reasonable, but have you taken other issues into consideration (e.g., efficacy, other adverse reactions, cost, etc.)? And how about the number needed to treat? Do you know how many patients would need to receive the new therapy as opposed to the old one before one patient less experiences the side effect? Determining the number needed to treat can be useful in clinical practice when analyzing the risk versus benefit between two therapies.
