Shuttle Dataset (Statlog version)


The shuttle dataset contains 9 attributes all of which are numerical with the first one being time. The last column is the class with the following 7 levels: Rad.Flow, Fpv.Close, Fpv.Open, High, Bypass, Bpv.Close, Bpv.Open.

Approximately 80% of the data belongs to class 1. Therefore the default accuracy is about 80%. The aim here is to obtain an accuracy of 99 - 99.9%.
