Part 2 Application to Caravan Insurance Data¶

Use Caravan.csv to apply KNN and Logistic Regression to the Caravan data

Hint – use https://nbviewer.jupyter.org/github/JWarmenhoven/ISL-python/blob/master/Notebooks/Chapter%204.ipynb#4.6.5-K-Nearest-Neighbors

Q2. Classification Textbook Examples

Using the Boston data set, fit classification models in order to predict whether a given suburb has a crime rate above or below the median. Explore logistic regression, and KNN models using various subsets of the predictors. Describe your findings.

Q3 Iris Data Set and Classification (iris.csv)

The Iris dataset was used in R.A. Fisher's classic 1936 paper. It includes three iris species with 50 samples each as well as some properties about each flower. One flower species is linearly separable from the other two, but the other two are not linearly separable from each other. The columns in this dataset are:

· Id

· Sepal Length Cm

· Sepal Width Cm

· Petal Length Cm

· Petal Width Cm

· Species

a. Plot the iris dataset – i) “Sepal Length vs Sepal Width” ii) “Petal Length vs Petal Width”

Split into Training / Test and 

b. Apply Naïve Bayes Classifier to classify species with the decision boundaries

c. Apply logistic regression to classify species with the decision boundaries

d. Apply KNN algorithm to classify species with the decision boundaries

e. Compare the “Truth matrix” and Accuracy of the three algorithms
