Alteryx Machine Learning 


We’ve been listening to feedback from our customers and are delivering multiple new performance enhancements and feature improvements for Machine Learning in January! 


First, we have a key performance enhancement in the model evaluation step. Partial Dependence plots show you the effect that a single predictor has on your model’s outcome. Users will notice the processing speed for this step has been greatly increased, making model evaluation faster and easier than ever.

Machine Learning makes Feature Engineering fast and easy. With this release, we’ve made this process even better. Now users can manually select which features they want to go into models, enabling greater flexibility in framing a model around a specific use case and maximizing the predictive power of the model.

Finally, we’ve added a new alert that lets users know when something is amiss with their data. Sometimes customers will load a new prediction data set into their model that has key differences from that data used to train the model. This new alert will automatically flag the differences in the data, saving users from faulty predictions. 


Anomaly Detection within AML identified differences between the prediction dataset and original training dataset. 


Alteryx Auto Insights 


Common Causes is here! Common causes analyzes two different metrics in your data and provides insights into the relationship between the two metrics. Users can quickly understand if two metrics move in the same direction, the strength of correlation between them, and more.  This allows business users to gain an even deeper understanding of what factors are impacting their most critical KPIs by providing them with an explanation of how performance is connected across two metrics over time. Read about Common Causes in more detail here.
