Modeling Approach: binary classification, converting categorical to numerical attributes

Working through machine learning problems from end-to-end requires a structured modeling approach. Working problems through a project template can encourage you to think about the problem more critically, to challenge your assumptions, and to get good at all parts of a modeling project.

We will compare several different algorithms and determine which one would yield the best results. The project aims to touch on the following areas:

  1. Document a classification predictive modeling problem end-to-end.
  2. Explore data transformation options for improving model performance
  3. Explore algorithm tuning techniques for improving model performance
