Tackle churn before modeling

Access this AI accelerator on GitHub

Customer retention is central to any successful business and machine learning is frequently proposed as a way of addressing churn. It is tempting to dive right into a churn dataset, but improving outcomes requires correctly framing the problem. Doing so at the start will determine whether the business can take action based on the trained model and whether your hard work is valuable or not.

This accelerator blog will teach the problem framing and data management steps required before modeling begins. It uses two examples to illustrate concepts: a B2C retail example, and a B2B example based on DataRobot’s internal churn model.
