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...
Workflow overview Basic time series modeling workflow.
Date/time partitioning Build models with time-relevant data.
Time series modeling Build time series forecasting models.
Multiseries modeling Build models with datasets that contain multiple time series based on a common set of input features.
Nowcasting Predict the current value of a target based on past and present.
External prediction comparison Use the output of predictions made by non-DataRobot models as a baseline to compare against DataRobot predictions.
Modeling dataset The modeling dataset that is a result of the feature derivation process.
Time series reference View deep-dive reference material for DataRobot time series modeling.

Business operations

Topic Describes...
