Lists In R

Dave Mason continues his process of learning about R data structures with a survey of lists:

In previous lessons, we’ve noted vectors and matrices consist of data elements of the same class. R will coerce data elements to a single class if we attempt to create a vector or matrix with data elements of differing classes. Lists, on the other hand, can hold data elements of different classes, such as the integer, character, or logical class. In fact, a list can hold most anything in R, including vectors, matrices, and many more! None to my surprise, lists can be created with the list() function:

And if you want to work with lists, purrr is a great package to learn.

Roos Colman explains what a Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve is and how we interpret the Area Under the Curve (AUC): The AUC can be defined as “The probability that a randomly selected case will have a higher test result than a randomly selected control”. Let’s use this definition to calculate and visualize the estimated […]

Pablo Casas walks us through Keras on R: One of the key points in Deep Learning is to understand the dimensions of the vector, matrices and/or arrays that the model needs. I found that these are the types supported by Keras. In Python’s words, it is the shape of the array. To do a binary […]
