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 event.
On the Event_Type 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 event type 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|
Event_Type is a categorical feature that will produce classification results.
Select the features that the model should use to predict the target feature and begin the model generation.
