Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project studies the classification variable ‘default’ in Peer to Peer lending dataset known as Lending Club. The project improved on existing work in terms of accuracy, F-1 measure, precision, recall, and root mean squared error. We explored balancing techniques such as oversampling the minority class, undersampling the majority class, and random forests with balanced bootstraps. We also analyzed and proposed new features that improve the Learner performance.
