Expert knowledge is playing an essential role when we try to deal with real-world problems (e.g., environmental monitoring and protection; traffic control and optimization) with machine learning techniques. Machine learning models are usually designed with consideration of generalizability. Therefore, directly applying them to domain problems without augmentation will not yield good results. In contrast, expert knowledge can help set up the correct objective, design proper model, interpret the model, provide theoretical support and explain the results. These processes are equally important as the accuracy of machine learning models for the domain experts to make decisions.
Guanjie is a fifth-year Ph. D. candidate at the College of Information Sciences and Technology, The Pennsylvania State University. He works with Dr. Zhenhui (Jessie) Li on developing data mining techniques for spatial and temporal structured data.
