The sections described below provide information to help you easily navigate the ML modeling process.

Build models

Topic Describes...
Build models Elements of the basic modeling workflow.
Advanced options Setting advanced modeling parameters prior to building.
Manage projects Manage models and projects, and export data.

Model insights (Leaderboard tabs)

Topic Describes...
Evaluate tabs View key plots and statistics needed to judge and interpret a model’s effectiveness.
Understand tabs Understand what drives a model’s predictions.
Describe tabs View model building information and feature details.
Predict tabs Make predictions in DataRobot using the UI or API.
Compliance tabs Compile model development documentation that can be used for regulatory validation.
Comments tab Add comments to assets in the AI Catalog.
Bias and Fairness tabs Identify if a model is biased and why the model is learning bias from the training data.
Other model tabs Compare models across a project.

Specialized workflows

Topic Describes...
Date/time partitioning Build models with time-relevant data (not time series).
Unsupervised learning Work with unlabeled or partially labeled data to build anomaly detection or clustering models.
Composable ML Build blueprints using built-in DataRobot tasks and custom Python or R code.
Visual AI Use image-based datasets.
Location AI Use geospatial datasets.

Time series modeling

Topic Describes...
What is time-based modeling? The basic modeling process and a recommended reading path.
Time series workflow overview The workflow for creating a time series project.
Time series insights Visualizations available to help interpret your data and models.
Time series predictions Making predictions with time series models.
Multiseries modeling Modeling with datasets that contain multiple time series.
Segmented modeling Grouping series into segments, creating multiple projects for each segment, and producing a single Combined Model for the data.
Nowcasting Making predictions for the present and very near future (very short-range forecasting).
Enable external prediction comparison Comparing model predictions built outside of DataRobot against DataRobot predictions.
Advanced time series modeling Modifying partitions, setting advanced options, and understanding window settings.
Time series modeling data Working with the time series modeling dataset:
  • Creating the modeling dataset
  • Using the data prep tool
  • Restoring pruned features
Time series reference How to customize time series projects as well as a variety of deep-dive reference material for DataRobot time series modeling.
