Ciro Greco has built ML systems at many named-brand retailers. In this episode, he gives us tips on getting value out of ML at “reasonable scale” companies with NLP and information retrieval. The concept of “reasonable scale” was one he returned to. and he clearly has a nuanced understanding of how that segment differs from the hyper scale tech giants. He also brings advanced ideas like embeddings from NLP towards e-commerce personalization.

Intro

Previously, we showed that throwing more training data at a deep learning model has rapidly diminishing returns. If doubling your labeling budget won’t move the needle, what next? Consider semi-supervised learning (SSL) to unlock the information in unlabeled data.

Our mission at Masterful AI is to bring the power and efficiency of modern software development to machine learning. One of the most archaic and error-prone aspects of ML development is getting accurately labeled training data. Through our work with many other ML engineers, we've seen a common fear: no one really knows if simply throwing more labeled training data at their model is going to deliver the accuracy they need. This has big implications, since labeling is slow and expensive. In this post, we'll share a framework and online calculator you can use to evaluate the ROI of spending more money on labeling.
