Learning from imbalanced classes
There are tons of situations where classes are imbalanced (error detection, fraud detection...). But conventional ML algorithms need balanced classes for top performance.
Introduction to contextual bandits
The Multi armed bandit is an interesting problem, where an agent has to choose between different bandits (or different algorithms, or different tools) to achieve a certain task. Here, this problem is applied to feed personalization
