Putting Machine Learning to Work

We started Feature Labs with a straightforward goal: build products that enable any organization to create and deploy machine learning solutions. In 2015 while working in the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, my co-founders and I developed an...

Feature Engineering vs Feature Selection

All machine learning workflows depend on feature engineering and feature selection. However, they are often erroneously equated by the data science and machine learning communities. Although they share some overlap, these two ideas have different objectives. Knowing...

Feature Engineering: Secret to data science success

Prior to starting Feature Labs, I researched data science automation in the Data to AI Lab at MIT. Unlike most data scientists who work in a single domain, our group had sponsors from a wide range of industries. This gave us the unique opportunity to develop innovative solutions to use with the diverse problems we worked on.

Applying Data Science Automation to Better Predict Credit Card Fraud

If you use a credit card, you probably know the feeling of having your card declined due to a suspected fraudulent transaction. An industry report from 2015 found that one out of every six legitimate cardholders experienced at least one declined transaction because of inaccurate fraud detection in the past year. That makes fraud detection an expensive problem for issuers: Those declined transactions lead to nearly $118 billion dollars in losses on an annual basis.

Even though numerous machine learning approaches have been developed in the past to address fraud, newly introduced data science automation platforms like Feature Labs give us a reason to revisit the problem. And now, any organization can see the power of automation for themselves using our just announced developer library, Featuretools.
