Lab: Predict a Regression Target

Lab: Predict a Regression Target

Use Case: Fuel Efficiency

About this Mission

On this mission, you will predict the fuel efficiency of a new car that has not yet been designed. This is a regression problem, so you will learn how to frame, set up, evaluate and interpret predictions for a continuous target. Finally, you will create a “What-If” prediction application to simulate the effects of potential feature values on the car's MPG. 

Format and duration: self-paced, hands-on, 1 hour

Who should complete this mission?

Business Analysts, Citizen Data Scientists, and Data Scientists who have completed a Starter Quest, AutoML I, or DataRobot for Data Scientists.
