In which we set up Kfold Cross Validation to assess model performance, spend quite a while tweaking our model, use hyperparameter tuning, but then end up not actually improving our model. Source: https://somewan.design There are a few things I'd like to accomplish today, first I'd like to generate some sort of accuracy score just using the training data. So we're going to set up Kfold cross validation and explore how that works. Secondly there's some minor tweaks I'd like to make to the variables  encoding some of them differently, and adding a couple of new variables. Finally we're going to run hyperparameter tuning to see if that increases our performance. Once we've got Kfold CV set up we'll be able to investigate this improvement in performance without uploading to Kaggle which will be interesting. Mobile users  once again, if the below is not rendering well, please try rotating to landscape view.

And all that remains is to upload our latest submission as see how it performs. Fingers crossed. And our score has not actually improved! hmmmm.. I'm slightly stumped here as I really thought it would improve given we've tided up our variables, and we've added hyperparameter tuning. There's a few possibilities:
So that's all for today. Slightly disappointing that we didn't improve out score, but we did learn a few new tricks which will hopefully come in useful later on. Tune in next time when we have our final attempt at the House Price Kaggle competition.
