I'm looking for a data set that I can use to predict/classify using machine learning methods like SVM, trees, logistic regression, etc.

I would love something related to health/medicine, so I could use methods to detect early-stage diseases for example. But other areas are good too.

  • please see the UCI Machine Learning Repository, where you can filter by what type of ML you would like to do, and also what type of data.

Have you considered using the Pima Indians Diabetes dataset? This dataset could be quite a good fit for the methods of analysis you mentioned.

  • I saw that one and it's perfect. However, that data is very used already. I'm looking for a data set that I can use in my masters thesis, so I dont know if that one is good for that.

  • Also, I don't mind finding a good reference (with good reputation) and doing what they've done and do even more. Do you know any high reputation journal/group that done something with this data set? Found a lot online but they are not that good

  • I'm afraid health/medicine is not my area, so I unfortunately wouldn't be in a position to advise on journals or other datasets. Commented Sep 21, 2019 at 20:25
