Who will survive the Titanic Disaster?

By: Bhargav Dindukurthi | 2nd Year Undergraduate | IIT Kharagpur

Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of 15 April, 1912 after it collided with an iceberg during its maiden voyage. Here, I present you the solution of a classical classification problem which will predict who will be likely to survive if a similar disaster takes place (hypothetically speaking).

I have extensively focused on the feature engineering and interpretation and importance of different feature which leads to survival of passenger.

After that, I have applied different classification algorithms on the cleaned dataset to get an idea which one works best with this dataset.
