Classification Learner App

Interactively train, validate, and tune classification models

Choose among various algorithms to train and validate classification models for binary or multiclass problems. After training multiple models, compare their validation errors side-by-side, and then choose the best model. To help you decide which algorithm to use, see Train Classification Models in Classification Learner App.

This flow chart shows a common workflow for training classification models, or classifiers, in the Classification Learner app.
