What is an application or an app?

This article defines an application in the AI & Analytics Engine.

An application, or an app, is a special container on the Engine that contains:

  • Feature Sets
  • Models
  • Deployments

In an app, all models are trained and evaluated on the same train and test split respectively. This allows you to compare on an apple-to-apple basis, the performance of different trained models.

Examples of an APP:

  • App to predict survivors in the Titanic incident
  • App to forecast housing prices in Melbourne, Australia
