Data mining
Hi guys, I was doing a job but I found a problem and I don't know how to start, I'm really new to using the rapidminer, and I would like to know if anyone could help me. I have to estimate Feature 8 which is the number of maintenance interventions the device has had. What can I do? Thanks André

I worked on your training data a bit to build regression trees based on clean features. The predictive model performs pretty good with 10fold cross validation. RMSE is as follows
My process attached for your reference.

Thanks

I used the csv files from you in another thread. They are attached here as well.

This way I can understand what?
Ps. the feat1 could potentially result in some data leakage if we apply target encoding on such categorical attributes with soo many values. I don't have the context here but you can try to drop it by configuring "Target Encoding".
Pps. you can round up the predictions after scoring if you prefer to integers.
HTH!

I hope it makes sense

According to your definition, the model is predicting " Feat 8, which is the number of maintenance interventions."
I will stick to the regression models (KNN, regression tree, Random Forest, GLM, GBT are good choices for regression) because you will predict a numerical target. If the target is categorical, saying true/false, broken/normal, then go classification.
Besides visualization for data exploration and outlier detection, you can also use some of the outlier detection models (e.g. Tukey test for exponential distribution... )
I fully understand why you use the regression method, why the classification method is not the best, but I was kind of at a loss as to why you for example don't use the associations & correlations method is there a reason?
