My take on the https://www.kaggle.com/joniarroba/noshowappointments dataset

Primary Goal: Can we predict if a patient is or isn't going to show up for a medical appointment?

Project Outline:

  1. Data Cleaning & EDA
  2. Feature Selection & Creation
  3. Model Training
  4. Model Testing
  5. Conclusions
  6. Deliverable

Results:

Maybe..? I wasn't able to at least, not with this dataset. I wasn't able to derive any predictions better than human intuition. Maybe with a more robust dataset we might be able to. Or it simply isn't possible and there is a certain amount of randomness in the world that can't be predicted in these sorts of things.
