Imbalanced datasets pose a significant challenge in machine learning, where the disproportionate distribution of classes leads to biased models that favor the majority class. This webinar dives deep into the nuanced strategies and computational methodologies essential for effectively handling imbalanced data in machine learning models. Join us for an insightful session where I share invaluable insights, address the complexities of imbalanced data, and provide actionable solutions to mitigate its impact on model performance.
