I trained a classifier and now I don’t know what to do with it

Using classifiers for things that aren't classification. A talk presented at the 2017 Mount Stromlo Student Seminars at the Australian National University.

Machine learning for radio cross-identification

We present a machine learning approach for the task of determining the infrared host galaxies of radio emissions detected in wide-area radio surveys. Our method is trained on both expert cross-identifications and crowdsourced cross-identifications from Radio Galaxy Zoo and applied to observations from the Australia Telescope Large Area Survey.
