Kickstarter Success

Kickstarter Success is a machine learning powered application to help you predict whether your kickstarter campaign will be successful based on several factors: campaign name, description, category, fundraising goal, country, and duration.

The data science team:

  • Used Kickstarter dataset to predict the percentage of success of a campaign using TfidfVectorizer and Spacy models to do natural language processing on campaign descriptions.
  • Created and deployed Random Forest models using a Flask  API on Heroku so the back end can make requests and return predictions.
