Computing Your SkillSummary: I describe how the TrueSkill algorithm works using concepts you’re already familiar with. TrueSkill is used on Xbox Live to rank and match players and it serves as a great way to understand how statistical machine learning is actually applied today. I’ve also created an open source project where I implemented TrueSkill three different times in increasing complexity and capability. In addition, I’ve created a detailed supplemental math paper that works out equations that I gloss over here. Feel free to jump to sections that look interesting and ignore ones that seem boring. Introduction It seemed easy enough: I wanted to create a database to track the skill levels of my coworkers in chess and foosball. But, there’s a problem. Machine learning is a hot area in Computer Science— but it’s intimidating. “Not knowing something doesn’t mean you’re dumb— it just means you don’t know it.” Skill ≈ Probability of Winning Skill is tricky to measure. What Exactly is Probability Anyway? See?
