A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning

Using a data set about homes, see how a machine learning model is created to distinguish homes in New York from homes in San Francisco. One example of a machine learning method is a decision tree.

Adding split points and repeating processes (recursion) is also explained. Finally it shows how the tree performs on previously-unseen data.
