For the take #1 version of the project, I have done a few iterations of generating predictions and submitting them to Kaggle to gather the accuracy metric. The iterations are:

  1. Label all passengers dead or the attribute $Survived = 0 (The worst-case scenario)
  2. Label all female passengers survived or the attribute $Survived = 1
  3. Label all female passengers with Pclass=3 and Fare > 20 dead or the attribute $Survived = 0
