In the case of machine learning and data mining methods, the principal is the same except the emphasis is on automatic or semi-automatic generation of the models. This means that the prediction process can be treated as more of a “black box” that will “just work”. Datasets will consist of a row per horse, in the form of a series of numeric values relating to each variable to be used, and a desired output relating to the result of the race, either in binary format (for won or lost) or some form of relative performance (the placing or lengths beaten for example).
So automating staking in order to produce consistency can really help profitability – especially so for any bettor whose staking is inconsistent but whose methods are sound and can also be automated. The simplest - and often soundest - staking plan is to bet level stakes, in other words placing the same amount on each bet. That will minimize the effects of erratic staking, so that any method which produces a unit profit will in fact produce an actual profit. To begin, even for level stakes, we have to determine the size of the unit stake.
Datasets will consist of a row per horse, in the form of a series of numeric values relating to each variable to be used, and a desired output relating to the result of the race, either in binary format (for won or lost) or some form of relative performance (the placing or lengths beaten for example). Data preparation will still be done by the developer, but applying modelling techniques such as neural networks to correctly formatted data, also known as “training” the model, will create a model automatically.
