Machine learning Testing a Moving Target: How Do We Test Machine Learning Systems?

Most machine learning systems are based on neural networks, or sets of layered algorithms whose variables can be adjusted via a learning process. These types of systems don’t produce an exact result; in fact, sometimes they can produce an obviously incorrect result. So, how do you test them? Peter Varhol tells you what you should consider when evaluating machine learning systems.

Hadoop, Splunk, and other modern business intelligence tools and decision support systems all have something of the flavor of artificial intelligence—that is, you ask a question and get an answer. Testing these tools is a challenge, but it can also provide opportunities for testers to shine if they can correctly distinguish an inhuman response.
