Comparison Neural nets with general statistical approaches?

Hello altogether,

as I want to do a comparison between different statistical methods and neural nets I am searching for a good and interpretable dataset. Unlike datasets like the Sonar dataset, where patterns are not obvious to the human eye, I am searching for a dataset where the "patterns" are already known, so that I can validate both methods in detail.

I appreciate every tip of you!

Thank you in advance 

Philipp

What about the Iris data set? When you make a scatterplot of the attributes with the labels as colors you can easily see the patterns.

The Titanic dataset is also pretty approachable from a human interpretability perspective and has a lot more observations than the Iris dataset.

Re: Comparison Neural nets with general statistical approaches?

Thank you both for your answers! 

Yes, I know both examples. And if I can't find other examples I am going to take them, but since I am usually doing everything with them, I hoped that there maybe is another option, just for curious reasons.

Thank you again Smiley Happy
