About Lab Challenges

Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.

Challenge Description

The aim of this lab is to challenge you on building a supervised machine learning pipeline to predict the probability that a subject will suffer from a heart stroke. Here, you will be tested on data preprocessing, fitting, and evaluation of a classification model.

To get the most from this lab, it is recommended to have confidence and exposure to at least the following libraries: pandas, matplotlib and scikit-learn.

I strongly encourage you to have watched the following courses, available in our content library:

as well as the following lab:

before starting this challenge.

What will be assessed

  • Your ability to create a machine learning pipeline
  • Your ability to fit a logistic regression model
  • Your ability to evaluate a classification model

Intended audience

  • Machine learning engineers
  • Data scientists

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of classification Completion of the Building a Machine Learning pipeline with scikit-learn: part 02 course is highly recommended
