R

Tomaz Kastrun gives us an example using native scoring in SQL Server 2017 Machine Learning Services:

Native scoring in SQL Server 2017 comes with couple of limitations, but also with a lot of benefits. Limitations are:

  • currently supports only SQL server 2017 and Windows platform

  • trained model should not exceed 100 MiB in size

  • Native scoring with PREDICT function supports only following algorithms from RevoScaleR library:

    • rxLinMod (linear model as linear regression)

    • rxLogit (logistic regression)

    • rxBTrees (Parallel external memory algorithm for Stochastic Gradient Boosted Decision Trees)

    • rxDtree (External memory algorithm for Classification and Regression Trees

    • rxDForest (External memory algorithm for Classification and Regression Decision Trees)

Read on for an example.  If you’re using one of these methods, then native scoring is extremely fast and a bit more flexible than I originally anticipated.  The problem is that you have to use one of those methods.

Goodbye, gather and spread; Hello pivot_long and pivot_wide

John Mount covers a change in tidyr which mimics Mount and Nina Zumel’s pivot_to_rowrecs and unpivot_to_blocks functions in the cdata package: If you want to work in the above way we suggest giving our cdatapackage a try. We named the functions pivot_to_rowrecs and unpivot_to_blocks. The idea was: by emphasizing the record structure one might eventually internalize what the transforms […]
