- Performed Data cleaning in a huge dataset which had many missing data & extreme outliers from Hadoop
- Used MICE in R & iterative imputer in python to impute missing observations based on the existing observations & tracked outliers using Mahalanobis distance & chi square cut off to remove extreme outliers
- Used cook’s distance to detect distinct observational influence on the dataset and removed the outliers
- Used two sample independent t-tests to access the differences in mean purchases across dichotomous variables such as gender and marital status, used one-way ANOVA and tukey parameter to access difference between mean purchases across polychotomous variables such as occupation and age
- Used Multiple Linear Regression, Decision Tree Regression, Support Vector Regression & ensemble learning like Bagging, Random Forests & Gradient Boosting Machine to train 70% of the model & the models were optimized using Grid Search & the predictions were made on the test set using each trained model
- Computed Absolute and Relative return based on the simulation and plotted histograms for the selections to find the best ad and strategy based on the reinforcement learning algorithm (Thompson Sampling)
- The final model was selected using Gain Plot Curve Relative Gini Score, Root Mean Squared Error, and Mean Absolute Error and validated using ten-fold cross validation technique
- The final results were summarized as a dashboard in tableau and it was presented to the client
