Predicting Remaining Useful Life
The general setup for the problem is a common one: we have a single table of sensor observations over time. Now that collecting information is easier than ever, most industries have already generated time-series type problems by the way that they store data. As such, it is crucial to be able to handle data in this form. Thankfully, built-in functionality from Featuretools handles time varying data well.
We'll demonstrate an end-to-end workflow using a Turbofan Engine Degradation Simulation Data Set from NASA. This notebook demonstrates a rapid way to predict the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of an engine using an initial dataframe of time-series data. There are three sections of the notebook:
- Understand the Data
- Generate features
- Make predictions with Machine Learning
To run the notebooks, you need to download the data yourself. Download and unzip the file from https://ti.arc.nasa.gov/c/6/. Then create a 'data' directory and place the files in the 'data' directory.
- Quickly make end-to-end workflow using time-series data
- Find interesting automatically generated features
- An advanced notebook using custom primitives and hyper-parameter tuning
