Episode 53: Estimating uncertainty with neural networks
Jan 23rd, 2019 by frag
Have you ever wanted to get an estimate of the uncertainty of your neural network? Clearly Bayesian modelling provides a solid framework to estimate uncertainty by design. However, there are many realistic cases in which Bayesian sampling is not really an option and ensemble models can play a role.
In this episode I describe a simple yet effective way to estimate uncertainty, without changing your neural network’s architecture nor your machine learning pipeline at all.
