Project Description

From the perspective of risk management, the result of predictive accuracy of the estimated probability of default will be more valuable than the binary result of classification - credible or not credible clients. Because the real probability of default is unknown, so in this machine learning project we present the novel Sorting Smoothing Method to estimate the real probability of default.

With the real probability of default as the response variable (Y), and the predictive probability of default as the independent variable (X), the simple linear regression result (Y = A + BX) shows that the forecasting model produced by artificial neural network has the highest coefficient of determination; its regression intercept (A) is close to zero, and regression coefficient (B) to one. Therefore, among the six data mining techniques, artificial neural network is the only one that can accurately estimate the real probability of default.

Similar Projects

In this machine learning project, we will build a predictive model to find out the sales of each product at a particular store.

The goal of this machine learning project is to predict which products existing customers will use next month based on their past behaviour and that of similar customers.

This data science in python project predicts if a loan should be given to an applicant or not. We predict if the customer is eligible for loan based on several factors like credit score and past history.
