Setting Up the H2O Cluster

Automated machine learning (AutoML) is a powerful feature of H2O that automates the entire machine learning pipeline, from data preprocessing to model selection and hyperparameter tuning. It allows even nonexperts to quickly build and deploy accurate machine learning models without the need for extensive domain knowledge or programming skills. AutoML uses a range of state-of-the-art algorithms to automatically search for the model that fits the data and provides the best predictive performance. In this section, we’ll learn how to use AutoML with H2OFrame objects to quickly build high-performing machine learning models for a variety of tasks.

Let’s quickly set up our H2O environment.

Initializing H2O environment

H2O is a widely used open-source platform for machine learning and data analysis. To get started with H2O, we need to call the h2o.init() function to initialize the H2O cluster.
