Predictive Modeling for Continuous Targets Using IBM SPSS Modeler (v18)


DURACIÓN: 8 Hours (1 dia)

Precio: €750,00


This course (formerly Predicting Continuous Targets Using IBM SPSS Modeler (v16)) provides an overview of how to use IBM SPSS Modeler to predict a target field that describes numeric values. Students will be exposed to rule induction models such as CHAID and C&R Tree. They will also be introduced to traditional statistical models such as Linear Regression. Machine learning models will also be presented. Business use case examples include: predicting the length of subscription (for newspapers, telecommunication, job length, and so forth) and predicting claim amount (insurance).


Please refer to course overview.
