Chapter 7. Classification Models

Classification is another kind of supervised machine learning. In this chapter, before getting into the details of building a classification model using ML Studio, you will start with gaining the basic knowledge about a classification algorithm and how a model is evaluated. Then, you will build models with different datasets using different algorithms.

Understanding classification

Consider you are given the following hypothetical dataset containing data of patients: the size of the tumor in their body, their age, and a class that justifies whether they are affected by cancer or not, 1 being positive (affected by cancer) and 0 being negative (not affected by cancer):
