Identifying Iris Species based on Petal

Sep 02, 2021

The aim is to classify iris flowers among three species (setosa, versicolor, or virginica) from measurements of sepals and petals’ length and width. The central goal here is to design a model that makes useful classifications for new flowers or, in other words, one which exhibits good generalization.

  • sepal_length: Sepal length, in centimeters, used as input.
  • sepal_width: Sepal width, in centimeters, used as input.
  • petal_length: Petal length, in centimeters, used as input.
  • petal_width: Petal width, in centimeters, used as input.
  • class: Iris Setosa, Versicolor, or Virginica, used as the target.

Observations:

  • By using petal length we can separate iris-setosa
  • By using sepal length,sepal width we can’t do anything because it’s all messed up and we can’t separate the flowers
  • In petal width iris setosa is not distributed properly
  • So we are using the petal length as feature to separate at least the iris setosa.
