Comparing Four Machine Learning APIs Performance

Machine learning is becoming more accessible as the technology advances and companies release more machine learning APIs. In a recent blog post, Louis Dorard decided to compare some of the bigger names in machine learning (ML) with a few lesser-known APIs. The ML services being compared are Google Prediction API, Amazon ML, PredicSis and BigML. The comparison was based on the Kaggle “Give Me Some Credit” challenge for assigning financial credit scores based on the predicted probability of default. The predictions are drawn from a dataset of input-output values corresponding to individual applicants who later either did or didn’t default. The goal is to use ML to predict whether a new applicant will default on any awarded credit. The author used a dataset of 150,000 instances to train the model…
