您将学到什么 (What you'll learn)

Explore a process applying machine learning to deliver business value, focusing on deep learning, gradient boosting, and feature engineering techniques

描述 (Description)


Hendra Suryanto shares a case study from a Canadian financial lender that his company helped transition from manual to automated credit decisioning, using gradient boosting machine and deep learning to build the model. The process begins with prototyping, moves to production and automation, and ends up at operationalization, which involves translating predictions into decisions by incorporating the business rules and handing them over to the operations and business teams. In addition to modeling techniques, Hendra highlights the role feature engineering plays in improving model performance.
