Live training

Predicting Hotel Booking Cancellation Rates in Python

In this live training, we will build a machine learning model to predict whether or not a customer will cancel a hotel booking. We will walk through all steps of the machine learning process, from importing the data over preprocessing the data up to training a model and evaluating its performance. Filip will provide a template workspace for you so you can easily follow along as he’s coding up the model.
