A sister Meetup group in Austin is holding this event; due to the new coronavirus outbreak, this will be held online.
Validating a Jet Engine Predictive Model in a Cloud Environment
Wednesday, November 18,[masked]:00 AM CST
In this meetup, we’ll go through the process of applying machine learning concepts to create a predictive model and validate its cost effectiveness on a publicly available NASA dataset that shows how jet engines degrade over time. Using python within a modern cloud platform, we’ll create a gradient boosted regression model using XGBoost, an open-source library, and layer a classifier on top in order to predict when an engine should be expected to require maintenance. To determine cost effectiveness, we’ll assign dollar values to the classifier’s potential outcomes and determine the fiscal impact of implementing this predictive model. We’ll show how predictive models can save lives as well as save companies huge sums of money.
Come join us to see the process we’ve created and hopefully it will inspire some new ways of thinking!
