Automated Machine Learning — A Paradigm Shift That Accelerates Data Scientist Productivity @ Airbnb
Hamel Husain

Hi Skylar Becker the platform used for the case study in this article is a commercial AML tool called DataRobot (, which automatically does feature engineering and gracefully handles all data types including text without any human intervention.

In this particular case, DataRobot automatically searched a plethora of alternate feature engineering strategies for each algorithm automatically (thats why you see some algorithms repeat on the box-plot chart) in addition to hyper parameter tuning.

As far as putting models in production are concerned, this is also fairly easy depending on the AML platform you are using.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
