Get the Best Predictions from Three Modeling Algorithms

Einstein Discovery now supports three modeling algorithms to predict outcomes: Generalized Linear Model (GLM), Gradient Boost Machine (GBM), and XGBoost. When you create a story with a predictive model, you can select a specific algorithm. Alternatively, you can have Einstein Discovery use all three algorithms to create the model and then show the results of the model that performed best. You get the winning approach.

Where: This change applies to Einstein Analytics in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. Einstein Analytics is available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

How: In story setup, Einstein Discovery automatically uses GLM by default. To create the model with all three algorithms, select Model Tournament (Advanced) from the Algorithm list.

List of Algorithm Types

In Model Metrics, the Overview tab shows you the algorithm type for the model.
