Chapter 1. Introducing Test-Driven Machine Learning

This book will show you how to develop complex software (sometimes rooted in randomness) in small, controlled steps . It will also instruct you in how to begin developing solutions to machine learning problems using test-driven development (from here, this will be written as TDD). Mastering TDD is not something this book will achieve. Instead, this book will help you begin your journey and expose you to guiding principles, which you can use to creatively solve challenges as you encounter them.

We will answer the following three questions in this chapter:

  • What are TDD and BDD (behavior-driven development)?
  • How do we apply these concepts to machine learning, and make inferences and predictions?
