Evaluating Machine Learning Performance: Understanding Precision and Recall

Precision and recall are two of the widest-used measurements of performance in machine learning and are also very relevant to cybersecurity applications. 

In this video, we discuss the meaning of these two measurements and discuss their deeper relevance – especially with respect to security operations. 

We also fill you in on some tricks that vendors use to game those numbers in their marketing material and how to ask probing questions to understand what is really being communicated in a pitch.
