#Bank Marketing Example
This page describes how to run Mahout’s SGD classifier on the UCI Bank Marketing dataset.
The goal is to predict if the client will subscribe a term deposit offered via a phone call. The features in the dataset consist
of information such as age, job, marital status as well as information about the last contacts from the bank.
Code & Data
The bank marketing example code lives under
The data can be found at
This example consists of 3 classes:
When you run the main method of BankMarketingClassificationMain it parses the dataset using the TelephoneCallParser and trains
a logistic regression model with 20 runs and 20 passes. The TelephoneCallParser uses Mahout’s feature vector encoder
to encode the features in the dataset into a vector. Afterwards the model is tested and the learning rate and AUC is printed accuracy is printed to standard output.
