Now that you have a relevant dataset, you must choose the target feature that you want to predict.
Select the target feature to predict
To choose the target feature that you want to predict:
- 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 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|
Acceleration is a continuous feature that will produce regression results.
Select the features that the model should use to predict the target feature and begin the model generation.
