Running A Model On Separate Groups Of Data

Kevin Feasel



Simon Jackson shows how to run the same model against separate groups of data in R:

Now that we can separate data for each group(s), we can fit a model to each tibble in data using map() from the purrr package (also tidyverse). We’re going to add the results to our existing tibble using mutate() from the dplyr package (again, tidyverse). Here’s a generic version of our pipe with adjustable parts in caps:

Reinforcement Learning with R

Holger von Jouanne-Diedrich takes us through concepts in reinforcement learning: At the core this can be stated as the problem a gambler has who wants to play a one-armed bandit: if there are several machines with different winning probabilities (a so-called multi-armed bandit problem) the question the gambler faces is: which machine to play? He could “exploit” one […]

Biases in Tree-Based Models

Nina Zumel looks at tree-based ensembling models like random forest and gradient boost and shows that they can be biased: In our previous article , we showed that generalized linear models are unbiased, or calibrated: they preserve the conditional expectations and rollups of the training data. A calibrated model is important in many applications, particularly when financial data […]
