The redesigned Predictors dashboard aims to answer the most important questions related to the generated models:

1. Is model complete

2. What is relevant for this model

3. When can you trust this model

By previewing the answers from the above questions, users can visualize the   model accuracies, column importances, confusion matrix. Now, Scout’s Predictors dashboard offers an advanced mode where users can add additional arguments as the margin of error, use GPU, choose backend, columns to be removed, etc before training the model.

In the new Query dashboard, the user can get predictions from the models. Scout’s new Query dashboard offers an explanation and extra insights about each prediction.
