When examined around the world, it was determined that there are many types of mushrooms. Mushrooms are among the important nutrients for human life in many respects. An important feature of mushrooms used in various researches is that they are edible or poisonous. Different types of mushrooms have many characteristics. These features can be common in different features. However, the poisonousness of the mushroom can be determined by examining many features. In this study, whether the mushrooms are poisonous or edible is examined. In this study, 5 different classification methods were used. These; Logistic Regression, KNeigborsClassifier, DecisionTreeClassifier, RandomForestClassifier, and SVM. As a result, it was determined that SVM was the method that gave the most accurate result in this study.
