KNIMETV Showing New Video on Churn Prediction

There is a new KNIME video on YouTube showing how you can build a basic model for churn prediction. The video shows how to create a model and train it to predict churn. The model is then evaluated on a test set and finally applied in a deployment workflow to work on real live data. Even with the all talking and explanation provided in the video, this whole process actually takes less than half an hour!
This video is just a starting point. You can, of course, improve, adapt, and optimize the model according to your data and company needs.

Watch the video here.
