One of the classic questions you might encounter in a data science interview is implementing the binary search algorithm. This efficient search algorithm is used to find a target value within a sorted array. We've provided a detailed breakdown of the algorithm along with a Python code snippet to help you understand its inner workings.

Bias-Variance Tradeoff

Bias-Variance tradeoff

The bias-variance tradeoff is a fundamental concept in machine learning that lies at the heart of model performance. In this section, we explore the delicate balance between bias and variance, discussing how high bias can lead to underfitting while high variance can result in overfitting. We've broken down the tradeoff using intuitive examples and provided a formula to help you visualize the concept.
