To begin, you must choose the target feature that you want to explore.
Select the target feature to explore
To choose the target feature that you want to explore:
- Review the list of available features in the Select Target view.
Note: Feature summaries show the values for each column/field in the dataset. Distil automatically infers the type of data stored for each feature. To change the inferred value, use the type drop-down on the upper right corner of the summary.
- Use the Search field to filter on acceleration.
On the Acceleration feature summary, click Select Target.
Distil automatically sends you to the next step, adding the feature to the model definition and listing a sample of actual acceleration values.Note: You can change the target at any time by returning to the Select Target view. Click New Model: Select Target in the navigation bar to go back.
The target you select determines the type of results the model will generate.
|Feature type||Model type||Prediction||Results|
|Continuous||Regression||Numerical value||Correct and incorrect predictions based on a configurable distance from the actual target feature values|
|Categorical||Classification||Category||Correct and incorrect predictions based the actual target feature category|
|Timeseries||Forecasting||Numerical values over time||Forecasted values for the last 10% of timeseries data|
Acceleration is a continuous feature that will produce regression results.
Select the features that you think should predict the target feature.
