Predicting adult income (binary outcome of above or below 50k) and comparing results between a custom R model and SVM model
This experiment predicts a binary outcome of class of income a person has (above or below 50k) using two models, one built with custom R code (basic naïve bayes classifier) and one built with a built-in SVM model to Azure ML with default parameters. The models are compared by accuracy, and the SVM model is found to predict better than the naïve Bayes model. Created by a Microsoft employee.
