Building Dynamic Row Headers With ML Services

Dave Mason tries to get around his RESULT SETS limitation when using SQL Server Machine Learning Services:

The columns in the data frame clearly have names, but SQL Server isn’t using them. The data frame columns have types in R too (more on this in a moment). Now that makes me wonder about the data types for the data returned by SQL. How is that determined? If SQL isn’t using the column names, can I assume it isn’t making use of the R column types either?

For a point of reference, let’s run some more R code to show the column names and types. As before, the rvest package is used to scrape a web page, with each HTML <table> found becoming a data frame in the “tables” list (line 3). A data frame of table metadata is created by calling data.frame(). The first parameter is a vector of column names (line 4), the second parameter is a vector of column classes (line 5), and the third parameter causes the row “names” to be incrementing digits (line 6).

This is a work in progress as Dave continues his series.

Inline Operators In R With wrapr

John Mount shows how to use inline operators in R with the wrapr package: The above code is assuming you have the wrapr package attached via already having run library('wrapr'). Notice we picked R-related operator names. We stayed away from overloading the + operator, as the arithmetic operators are somewhat special in how they dispatch in R. The goal wasn’t […]
