Abraham Lincoln and Predictive Modeling Project

Abraham Lincoln said, "If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four hours sharpening the axe". The same principle can be applied to a predictive modeling project. From the discussion in previous posts, we can see that most of the time are not spent on building model itself. Thus we may say, "If I had ten days to build a predictive model, I'd spend the first seven days understanding data and building feature variables that are truly relevant to the target variable".

Expositions are inside and out and in some cases extremely complex reports that are barely at any point perused by anybody yet an understudy, masters in the train, your guide and board of trustees. It's very improbable that your thesis will make it to the front of the Wall Street Journal. Enjoy recognizing a paper thought, concentrate your point and composing the thesis.
