Using "Loop cluster" operator.

shoonyashoonya Member Posts: 4 Contributor I
Use case is,

Example set:
id, field1, field2, ... fieldn, xx

now, I need to cluster example set based on xx and then do linear regression on field1 .. fieldn (field1 being label) with each cluster having it's separate model.

Not getting how to use loop operator.
Tried adding regression operator inside it and "Collect" operator to collect all the outcomes, but not able to see different models for each cluster

Any link/example about how to use this loop cluster operator will be helpful.

    Hi, for the looping you could also use  Loop Values in combination with Filter Examples. Please have a look at the attached process. The loop operator outputs a collection of regression models. To access one of them, you can use Select.

    Best, Marius
