Using Keras To Predict Customer Churn

Matt Dancho has an example of building a neural net using Keras to predict customer churn:

Pro Tip: A quick test is to see if the log transformation increases the magnitude of the correlation between “TotalCharges” and “Churn”. We’ll use a few dplyr operations along with the corrr package to perform a quick correlation.

  • correlate(): Performs tidy correlations on numeric data

  • focus(): Similar to select(). Takes columns and focuses on only the rows/columns of importance.

  • fashion(): Makes the formatting aesthetically easier to read.

This is a very useful tutorial.

MAPE and Its Flaws

Jan Fischer takes us through Mean Absolute Percentage Error as a measure of forecast quality: Particular small actual values bias the MAPE.If any true values are very close to zero, the corresponding absolute percentage errors will be extremely high and therefore bias the informativity of the MAPE (Hyndman & Koehler 2006). The following graph clarifies this […]
