Predicting Customer Churn with Machine Learning

Customer churn prediction using machine learning

Customer churn, also known as customer attrition, is a major problem for businesses that rely on recurring revenue. Customer churn costs businesses billions of dollars every year, and it’s only getting worse as customers become more and more fickle. In fact, it’s been estimated that the average company loses 10-15% of its customers each year. That number may seem small, but it can have a huge impact on a company’s bottom line. Fortunately, there’s a way to combat churn: by using machine learning to predict which customers are likely to churn. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how customer churn prediction works and why it’s so important. We’ll also provide …

Decision Tree Hyperparameter Tuning Grid Search Example

decision tree grid search hyperparameter tuning example

The output prints out grid search across different values of hyperparameters, the model score with best hyperparameters and the most optimal hyperparameters value. In the above code, the decision tree model is train and evaluate our for each value combination and choose the combination that results in the best performance. In this case, “best performance” could be defined as either accuracy or AUC (area under the curve). Once we’ve found the best performing combination of hyperparameters, we can then train our final model using those values and deploy it to production.
