Then what is the need of dedicating a full chapter to illustrate the model? The reason is not about running a predictive model; it is about understanding the mathematics (algorithms) that goes behind the ready-made methods which we will be using to implement these algorithms. It is about interpreting the swathe of results these models spew after the model implementation and making sense of them in the context. Thus, it is of utmost importance to understand the mathematics behind the algorithms and the result parameters ...
