Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use scikit-learn and the PyOD library to build an unsupervised machine learning model for detecting hyperthyroidism. PyOD is a Python toolkit for detecting outlying objects in multivariate data. You’ll compare performance between four different anomaly detection methods on a specialized thyroid dataset: PCA, Clustering-Based Local Outlier Factor (CBLOF), Histogram-Based Outlier Score (HBOS), and KNN algorithms.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
