Introducing Alteryx Machine Learning

Universal Blogs

With Alteryx Machine Learning, you or any business analyst can use AutoML software to uncover insights and build optimized machine learning models to predict future behavior.
Alteryx Machine Learning guides you through the entire model building process, and you can use Designer to access any data source, file, application, or data type—including the data you already have in Designer. Alteryx Machine Learning will also analyze your data to ensure it’s ready for modeling. If the software detects potential problems, it will provide instructions as well as notifications at the top of columns to help you solve them. It also provides a score for your data’s health based on a few factors for each column, such as the:

  • Fraction of missing values
  • Number of outliers
  • Target leakage
  • Class imbalance
    Machine Learning
    Along with data analysis, Alteryx Machine Learning also offers many useful features you can use to improve your machine learning skills and the quality of your predictions.
