Data Augmentation plays a prominent role in improving the generalization performance of machine learning solutions. This talk will first introduce the scientific rationale behind data augmentation and then will delve into the best practices of its utilization with real-life examples in Python. Specific data augmentation techniques for computer vision, natural language processing, and time series problems will be discussed with relevant open-source libraries. Finally, test-time data augmentation and data augmentation in the context of algorithmic fairness will be covered.
