Abstract: Human In The Loop (HITL) is a process in which, as part of the ML workflow, experts are asked their opinion about predictions made by an ML model in order to tune and improve the model. In this talk we’ll explain how we collaborated with and integrated engineers as a core part of our machine learning process, in order to create a mechanism to automatically predict the best security policies for our customers. We’ll go through the different stages of the project, discuss the challenges we faced along the way and how we overcame them, and show how you can use a similar process for any heuristic/ML project you have.
