Model Settings: Algorithms

When defining a predictive model, the Algorithms & Settings tab allows you to choose the algorithms that will be used to build the model, and any special options for those algorithms.  In LityxIQ, more than one algorithm can be applied to a model, the same algorithm can be applied multiple times with different settings, or a combination of these.

The dialog provides a list of each algorithm currently applied to the model.  Each algorithm has options associated with it:

  • Settings - The Settings link will open up a new dialog specific to that algorithm.  The allowable settings for each algorithm are discussed in other articles.
  • Delete - The Delete link will remove that algorithm from the list.

The Add Algorithm menu can be used to select a new algorithm to add to the list of algorithms associated with the model.  Click the button to open the choice of algorithms, then click the algorithm you wish to add.  Depending on the type of model you are building, the list of possible algorithm available in this list may be different than shown above.
