Can any tell me if it is correct or not

There is a typo error : It is should be the below one,

print('Train RMSE: {}, Validation RMSE: {}'.format(rf2_train_rmse, rf2_val_rmse))

Yes this is correct, as you are not limiting any hyperparameter, the model is overfitting on the training data so you are getting 0 Train RMSE.

I’m getting this type error when I’m trying to find rsme for random forest:

*** Expected sequence or array-like, got <class ‘sklearn.ensemble._forest.RandomForestRegressor’>**

Please help?

Can you share snippets of your code?

Hi my fellow mates,
I am getting this attribute error. Can anyone please advise me on the correct steps to be taken?

I see that you have a typo with the method you are using here. It is misspelled. Go to the “methods” section of

Correct the spelling and try again. That should solve this AttributeError.

Assignment 2 has not been evaluated yet?

The evaluations take a week or two …

Is the RMSE score good or should I still tune the model.

Assignment 2 of zero to GBMS has not been evaluated till now as i submitted a week ago ??
If it’s any problem in my notebook solution ??

Evaluations may take 2 weeks

model.predict() is the correct way. Check your spelling. You’ve misspelled the word ‘predict’, You’ve written ‘predit’ where the letter ‘c’ is missing.
Your model is rf1, so it’d be 'rf1.predict()
.predict is the right attribute.

Now Its almost 3 weeks i submit my assignment and till date it is not evaluated.
Please somebody help me

I apologize for your inconvenience, your assignment will be evaluated by today.

I am getting error in:

QUESTION 3 : Visualize the decision tree (graphically and textually) and display feature importances as a graph. Limit the maximum depth of graphical visualization to 3 levels.

In assignment 2 of Machine Learning with Python: Zero to GBMs
Can any one tell me the error in my code.

Can you send the picture of full error message as it is not clear from this image…
Moreover the code seems fine to me…So maybe try running the notebook from top to bottom and see if there is problem somewhere else…

This is complete error message…

Please see.
