This article provides an overview of the many algorithms for modeling in DataRobot, from classical methods such as linear regression, and random forest, to the latest deep learning methods from TensorFlow and Keras. DataRobot employs Deep Learning algorithms for regression and classification for Automated Machine Learning, Visual AI, and Automated Time Series.

Automated Machine Learning

Here we have AutoML which includes algorithms from Keras and TensorFlow. It supports multimodal deep learning, which means you can include numeric, categorical, text, and image data, all in the same model.

DataRobot also allows you to tune all of these deep learning models just as you would any of the machine learning models inside DataRobot. You can tune the number of layers, neurons per layer, activation functions, normalization, dropout rates, cell types, and more.

  • AutoInt, short for Automatic Feature Interaction Learning

Visual AI

In Visual AI, DataRobot employs several pretrained CNN architectures, which allow you to start building models with just a few hundred images.

Automated Time Series

Automated Time Series offers deep learning models in the form of Deep Learning Regressors, MultiSeries networks, Sequence to Sequence models, LSTM & GRU RNNs, along with the latest deep learning algorithm, DeepAR.

Here we can see some of the deep learning options available for time series forecasting.
