Improving a machine learning model is impossible without a clear understanding of its current performance. In order to get that understanding, the Endgame data science team build Bit Inspector. Bit Inspector is an internal data visualization tool that Endgame uses to communicate the proficiency of our binary classification product, MalwareScore, through various data visualizations. Bit Inspector includes plots and metrics used to judge the ultimate performance of a model overall and across many sample subclasses. It also displays details about individual samples that can provide context about misclassifications. Bit Inspector has grown to include model performance summaries and real time performance tracking, and has proven valuable not just for data scientists, but also for project and product managers and executives to better understand the efficacy of MalwareScore. By tracking the right metrics through data visualizations, a data science team can stay focused on improving the model and communicating that improvement to stakeholders.
