Chapter 2. Should you send a purchase order to a technical approver?
This chapter covers
- Identifying a machine learning opportunity
- Identifying what and how much data is required
- Building a machine learning system
- Using machine learning to make decisions
In this chapter, you’ll work end to end through a machine learning scenario that makes a decision about whether to send an order to a technical approver or not. And you’ll do it without writing any rules! All you’ll feed into the machine learning system is a dataset consisting of 1,000 historical orders and a flag that indicates whether that order was sent to a technical approver or not.
