Knowing all about Outliers in Machine Learning;

23 June 2020 | Mayank Tripathi

One more thing which i missed in the article, that presence of outliers affects the distribution of the data. Let's examine what can happen to a data set with outliers. For the sample data set: 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4 We find the following: mean, median, mode, and standard deviation Mean = 2.58 Median = 2.5 Mode = 2 Standard Deviation = 1.08 If we add an outlier to the data set: 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 400 The new values of our statistics are: Mean = 35.38 Median = 2.5 Mode = 2 Standard Deviation = 114.74 It can be seen that having outliers often has a significant effect on the mean and standard deviation and hence affecting the distribution. We must take steps to remove outliers from our data sets. One of the easiest way to handle this is log transformation.Hope this information will help you.

INFORMATION ON DATA SCIENCE

The Data Science Foundation is committed to improving decision making. We believe that the use of data can improve decision making, but only if the social and environmental impact of decisions are evaluated alongside the knowledge and insight created though analytics. We work hard to help our members improve their decision making. To make good decisions today and to make better decisions tomorrow.

BIG DATA

We help organisations new to evidence-based decision making; collect, process and analyse data. We help them appreciate the meaning hidden in their data so that they can understand more about the landscape in which they operate. We then help organisations who already have the expertise to collect data and create insight, to consider the moral implications of their actions. To think about the social and environmental impact of what the data might suggest is the best possible course of action.
