Boxplot of top 10 Spot-Checking Algorithms on a Classification Problem

How to Develop a Framework to Spot-Check Machine Learning Algorithms in Python

Spot-checking algorithms is a technique in applied machine learning designed to quickly and objectively provide a first set of results on a new predictive modeling problem. Unlike grid searching and other types of algorithm tuning that seek the optimal algorithm or optimal configuration for an algorithm, spot-checking is intended to evaluate a diverse set of […]

How to Generate Test Datasets in Python with scikit-learn

Test datasets are small contrived datasets that let you test a machine learning algorithm or test harness. The data from test datasets have well-defined properties, such as linearly or non-linearity, that allow you to explore specific algorithm behavior. The scikit-learn Python library provides a suite of functions for generating samples from configurable test problems for […]
