Needs major work[edit]

All of these sections are empty, or contain only a link to the main article. Each of them needs at least a brief write up, or else the headings need to be removed and the links moved elsewhere in the article.

  1. 1.1 Classification trees
  2. 1.2 Naive Bayes
  3. 1.3 k-nearest neighbor algorithm
  4. 1.4 Majority classifier
  5. 1.5 Support vector

FICO Score Accuracy section[edit]

I am removing the section(s) on FICO score accuracy. The section is not cited. I am not an expert on FICO, but I suspect that if it's supposed to indicate a certain percentage of defaults on average, it may mean that the FICO default rate will naturally rise in adverse economic environments, such as in 2009. If the section can be supported by a robust analysis of FICO scores, then it should be re-included. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:31, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Predictive analytics vs. predictive modelling[edit]

There is a separate wikipedia entry for Predictive analytics that appears to me to be covering largely the same material as this Predictive modeling entry. And it is odd that the predictive modeling entry doesn't contain any links to predictive analytics. To me, it looks like these two wikipedia entries should be combined. My idea would be to incorporate some of the material from the predictive modeling entry into the predictive analytics entry, then establish a "re-direct", so that when someone types in "predictive modeling" they are brought to predictive analytics. However, I'm an inexperienced wikipedia contributor, and am unaware of the general wikipedia conventions for consolidating articles like this. I also do not want to offend the authors who have put lots of hard work into the two entries. -- So I merely want to bring up the idea here for discussion to see what others think of the idea.
