HANA Auto classification in Expert Analytics

Hi,

I know that Auto Classification is used for a binary outcome.

But what I'd like to know is:

what's the algorithm which is implemented inside?

I guess Logistic Regression, but if someone can give more info's I really appreciate.

Another doubt that I have is:

I see all the other algorithms with "R" at the beginning of the name hidden.

Does it mean that I need to install R software for using them?

Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for your answer Antoine.

    I've read the entire article but it talks about the Automated Analytics tool and not the "Auto Classification" inside the Expert Analytics tool where you can choose the algorithm to use.

    My question was about "Which kind of Classification that algorithm performs?"

    Thanks.

    Hello Dario, can you please screenshot the corresponding capability? To me Auto Classification relies on APL (in SAP HANA), and APL is the same engine used by Automated Analytics. So my answer would apply.

    Thanks,

    Antoine
