Machine Learning Cheat Sheet (for scikit-learn)
As you hopefully have heard, we at scikit-learn are doing a user survey (which is still open by the way). One of the requests there was to provide some sort of flow chart on how to do machine learning. As this is clearly impossible, I went to work straight away. This is the result: [edit2] clarification: With ensemble classifiers and ensemble regressors I mean random forests, extremely randomized trees, gradient boosted trees, and the soon-to-be-come weight boosted trees (adaboost). [/edit2] Needless to say, this sheet is completely authoritative. Thanks to Rob Zinkov for pointing out an error in one yes/no decision. More seriously: this is actually my work flow / train of thoughts whenever I try to solve a new problem. Only that I always start out with "just looking". Anyhow, enjoy ;) [edit3] You can find the SVG and dia file I used here.
