BigML not only provides ease-of-use, but it also offers flexibility in how you work with your data. This course serves as a hands-on introduction to BigML and its vast array of features. You'll start by exploring the different ways data can be loaded into the platform and how these can be transformed into datasets to train and test a machine learning model. You'll gain practical experience with some of the tools available to help you better understand your data - from histograms and scatterplots to visualizations of value distribution. Moving on, you'll build a fundamental classification model, a decision tree, which takes employee details and predicts whether they'll stay or leave in the next year. Finally, you'll investigate some possible configurations for this model.
