Selecting Target Variables for Modeling
Many people who are new to data science struggle with the preparation of the data. This is not surprising, given the many tutorials available on how to build models using already prepared data (think: Kaggle).
In this learning session, we spend some time exploring an important piece that is often missing: creating the target variable.
After watching the learning session, you should check out more information about target selection and preparing data.
- Target Variable (DataRobot Wiki).
- DataRobot licensed customers: search in-app Platform documentation for Modeling workflow, and locate the information “Setting the target feature.”
Find out more about the process of selecting a target variable by visiting our public documentation portal and navigating to the Select a Target section.
