Abstract

Several applications of Machine Learning are hamstrung by the a vicious cycle.
1. An Inaccurate Model provides poor Results which leads to…
2. Lack of Investment to procure / train more Data, which further leads to…
3. An Inaccurate Model providing poor results.

This vicious cycle can be broken by:
1. Either investing in procuring data and “Turking” the data (usually involves poorly paid, unhappy people) or
2. Hacking Human Cognition
This talk will focus on hacking the process of human cognition to bootstrap more effectively and increasing accuracy of the model without “Turking”.
