Using Alteryx to Determine and Lower the Impact of Missing or Abnormal Values on Machine Learning Algorithms

Every 30 seconds, Roquette generates more than 1 million records of data. Such a large amount of data is prone to some abnormalities: micro-shutdowns from the network, "sick" sensors, etc. Find out how Roquette uses Alteryx to detect abnormal values and identify true or false positives. Then learn how the values confirmed as incorrect can be estimated as accurately as possible thanks to “on-the-fly” correlations analysis and how abnormal values can affect the robustness of machine learning algorithms. The more accurate your data, the more accurate your predictions!
