Definition of precision

Precision is defined as true positives/(true negatives + false positives), which is not correct. It should be: true positives/(true positives + false positives)

Note from the Author or Editor:
Precision is defined as "true positives/(true negatives + false positives)", but it should be "true positives/(true positives + false positives)"

1st paragraph in the "OpFunc Functions" note box

"digital subscriber line(DSL) objects in Kubeflow Pipelines". It is "domain-specific language (DSL)" as in the kubeflow document (https://www.kubeflow.org/docs/pipelines/sdk/sdk-overview/)

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is correct - it should be "domain specific language" not "digital subscriber line".

Figure 6-2

Figure 6-2 shows feature narrative_xf, transform module.py creates consumer_complaint_narrative_xf (not consumer_disputed_xf as reported on 6th Sept)

Note from the Author or Editor:
In figure 6-2, "narrative_xf" should be replaced by "consumer_complaint_narrative_xf"

Chapter 4: Data Ingestion - Converting Parquet-Serialized Data to tf.Example

Hello! I've been previewing this title and it is excellent so far. I wanted to submit a change you'll want to make based on the current API for Tensorflow Extended. In chapter 4: Data Ingestion under the "Converting Parquet-Serialized Data to TF.Example", the API has changed so that section of code should be updated to the following: from tfx.components.example_gen.component import FileBasedExampleGen 1 from tfx.components.example_gen.custom_executors import parquet_executor 2 from tfx.utils.dsl_utils import external_input from tfx.components.base import executor_spec # new import examples = external_input(parquet_dir_path) example_gen = FileBasedExampleGen( input=examples, custom_executor_spec=executor_spec.ExecutorClassSpec(parquet_executor.Executor)) 3 # new api I'm really enjoying the title so far! Thanks! -Jason

Note from the Author or Editor:
We have made the change as suggested.
