## What is accuracy and precision in machine learning?

Accuracy tells you how many times the ML model was correct overall. Precision is how good the model is at predicting a specific category. Recall tells you how many times the model was able to detect a specific category.

## Why is F1 score better than accuracy?

F1 score vs Accuracy Remember that the F1 score is balancing precision and recall on the positive class while accuracy looks at correctly classified observations both positive and negative.

**How does Python calculate accuracy and precision?**

- # accuracy: (tp + tn) / (p + n) accuracy = accuracy_score(testy, yhat_classes)
- print(‘Accuracy: %f’ % accuracy) # precision tp / (tp + fp)
- precision = precision_score(testy, yhat_classes) print(‘Precision: %f’ % precision)
- # recall: tp / (tp + fn)
- print(‘Recall: %f’ % recall)
- f1 = f1_score(testy, yhat_classes)

**What is precision in ML?**

Precision is one indicator of a machine learning model’s performance – the quality of a positive prediction made by the model. Precision refers to the number of true positives divided by the total number of positive predictions (i.e., the number of true positives plus the number of false positives).

### Is AUC better than F1 score?

F1 score is applicable for any particular point on the ROC curve. You may think of it as a measure of precision and recall at a particular threshold value whereas AUC is the area under the ROC curve. For F score to be high, both precision and recall should be high.

**What’s a good F1 score?**

What is a good f1 score?

F1 | Interpretation |
---|---|

> 0.9 | Very good |

0.8 – 0.9 | Good |

0.5 – 0.8 | OK |

< 0.5 | Not good |

**How do you find the accuracy of a ML model?**

We calculate accuracy by dividing the number of correct predictions (the corresponding diagonal in the matrix) by the total number of samples. The result tells us that our model achieved a 44% accuracy on this multiclass problem.

#### What is ROC machine learning?

An ROC curve (receiver operating characteristic curve) is a graph showing the performance of a classification model at all classification thresholds. This curve plots two parameters: True Positive Rate.

#### What is difference between CNN and RNN?

A CNN has a different architecture from an RNN. CNNs are “feed-forward neural networks” that use filters and pooling layers, whereas RNNs feed results back into the network (more on this point below). In CNNs, the size of the input and the resulting output are fixed.

**Does CNN come under machine learning?**

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) Deep Learning – which has emerged as an effective tool for analyzing big data – uses complex algorithms and artificial neural networks to train machines/computers so that they can learn from experience, classify and recognize data/images just like a human brain does.

**How do you measure accuracy in machine learning?**

## Is 0.6 A good F1 score?

A binary classification task. Clearly, the higher the F1 score the better, with 0 being the worst possible and 1 being the best. Beyond this, most online sources don’t give you any idea of how to interpret a specific F1 score. Was my F1 score of 0.56 good or bad?

## Can accuracy and F1 score be same?

Just thinking about the theory, it is impossible that accuracy and the f1-score are the very same for every single dataset. The reason for this is that the f1-score is independent from the true-negatives while accuracy is not. By taking a dataset where f1 = acc and adding true negatives to it, you get f1 != acc .

**What accuracy is good in ML?**

Good accuracy in machine learning is subjective. But in our opinion, anything greater than 70% is a great model performance. In fact, an accuracy measure of anything between 70%-90% is not only ideal, it’s realistic.
