“How can we evaluate a solution as a single figure of merit?”

 

In many fields of science, one of the most important things to do is to evaluate which solution function to a given dataset is the best. However, quantifying this can be very difficult. So how can we use our scientific mindset to solve this problem? Well, we can simply use something called a Fitness Function that can summarize all functions as a single figure of merit. With an easily accessible and quantified set of possible functions, we can pick the best one from the stack. Fitness functions are commonly used in Data Science where there can be a manifold of possible solutions.
