Tryambak Chatterjee


The Titanic disaster which occurred in 1912 remains as one of the biggest tragedies that occurred in human endeavours. The objective of this paper is to apply different algorithms to check whether a passenger survived the Titanic disaster based on different attributes a passenger possess which is included in the dataset for testing. The results from the application of the different algorithms are compared and analysed.
