Techopedia explains Data Augmentation
Some of the common techniques used in data augmentation include:
- Extrapolation Technique: Based on heuristics. The relevant fields are updated or provided with values.
- Tagging Technique: Common records are tagged to a group, making it easier to understand and differentiate for the group.
- Aggregation Technique: Using mathematical values of averages and means, values are estimated for relevant fields if needed
- Probability Technique: Based on heuristics and analytical statistics, values are populated based on the probability of events.
