Hello forum,


i want to check if i found the right solution for the tutorial challenges an i am also stuck at one point.

Is there  "tutorial challenge solution" content on the web?


I am stuck at the Outlier Detection tutrorial, where one has to change the detection to oulier detection LOF and hast to change the filter to filter out the top ouliers. How could this be done? 


Thank you & kind regards,

    Hi Kim,


    Unfortunately we do not have solutions for these challenges, they are more of a self paced thing. However to answer your question, to change this to filter out the top outliers you would need to sort the distances decreasing from highest to lowest then use the filter example range operator to filter out the top 10. I attached my process below for you to look at!
