Abstract: Deep-diving VerticaPy – Building a prediction churn model using random forest and logistic regression VerticaPy is a Python library that exposes sci-kit like functionality to conduct data science projects on data stored in Vertica – taking advantage of the platform fast queries, built-in analytics and machine learning capabilities. In this session, we will demonstrate how simpler and quicker are data exploration and preparation. We will then demonstrate how in-database machine learning helps evaluate and deploy models easily while showcasing a prediction churn example using random forest and logistic regression
