NiCd Battery


Good day I would like to be corrected with regards to the below issue which would be a good definition of defining a problem type out of the below scenario.

Predicting whether or not a patient is likely to be readmitted on their initial discharge date is an example of the following problem type.


2.Text Processing

3.Time Series


5.Anomaly Detection


I would take it that it's a Regression problem type.
Could you please assist.

@Siya_Tshaya if we are predicting a “whether or not”  outcome, that seems like we have 2 distinct outcomes and want to predict which outcome is more likely — a patient being readmitted, or not readmitted. Does that still seem like a regression target problem?
