Data Contamination

Supervised machine learning assumes that the features and labels used for building a classifier are isolated from each other--basically, that you can't cheat by peeking. Turns out this can be easier said than done. In this episode, we'll talk about the many (and diverse!) cases where label information contaminates features, ruining data science competitions along the way.
