AutoML for Citizen Data Scientists Starter

AutoML for Citizen Data Scientists Starter

Start building predictive models (Self-paced).

About this Mission

Completing this mission will provide you with the basic skills to build predictive models that bring value to your organization.  You will first learn how Automated Machine Learning can help you solve key business questions. Then, you'll perform exploratory data analysis using DataRobot to give you instant insights and build your first model to make predictions on new data.  You'll gather insights from that predictive model and use DataRobot to support you in documenting and defending the decisions derived from your models. 

Note: The hands-on activities assume that you have access to DataRobot. If you are not yet a DataRobot customer, you can request a free trial of the product here: https://www.datarobot.com/lp/trial/
