Creating experiments

Machine learning experiments can be created in the hub by any user with a professional license. You can create new experiments in personal spaces or shared spaces for collaboration.

Creating experiments

You create experiments from the Qlik Cloud hub.

  1. Click Add new, and then select New ML experiment.

  2. Enter a name and space, and, optionally, a description and tags.

  3. Click Create.

    The Open experiment checkbox is selected by default. If you deselect this checkbox, you must open the experiment manually before proceeding to the next step.

  4. Select a dataset to use in your experiment. You can choose from all supported datasets that are available in your private and shared spaces.

    Datasets can be uploaded via the hub, and are visible in Catalog. You can also upload a new dataset directly into Catalog from the experiment's dataset selection page. This dataset will then automatically be selected as the training dataset for use in your experiment. To do so, click Add training dataset and choose the file to upload.

    Information note

    Any flat file that can be uploaded and profiled in Qlik Cloud is supported for use in Qlik AutoML.

    For multi-table files such as Microsoft Excel files with multiple sheets, only the first table will be imported. If data profiling fails for a table (for example, if it is empty), the file is not supported.

The next step in the process is to configure the experiment. See Configuring experiments.

Editing experiment name and other details

  1. Click by the experiment name.

  2. Edit the name or other details.

Showing guiding instructions

A guiding instruction for the current step in the process is shown by default at the top of the screen. When you are more familiar with the process, you might choose to hide the instruction.

  1. Hover over Experiment and click the Edit icon that appears.

  2. Toggle Enable Instructions.

Instructions are shown for the current step
