Machine learning enables developers and analysts to rapidly detect patterns in complex data sets. Often these tools are presented with descriptions of how to implement them, but, not always the clearest guidelines on when to implement them. Or, more crucially, when not to implement them. Learning algorithm selection, feature identification, and how to spot warning signs of impending doom are essential for getting the most out of machine learning efforts.
