Repeated Cross-Validation in R

Ludvig Olsen walks us through a couple of nice R packages:

The benefits of using groupdata2 to create the folds are 1) that it allows us to balance the ratios of our output classes (or simply a categorical column, if we are working with linear regression instead of classification), and 2) that it allows us to keep all observations with a specific ID (e.g. participant/user ID) in the same fold to avoid leakage between the folds.

The benefit of cvms is that it trains all the models and outputs a tibble (data frame) with results, predictions, model coefficients, and other sweet stuff, which is easy to add to a report or do further analyses on. It even allows us to cross-validate multiple model formulas at once to quickly compare them and select the best model.

Ludvig also gives us some examples of how both packages can help you out. H/T R-Bloggers

More recent additions to the package sometimes had palette […]

Icon Maps in R

Laura Ellis shows how you can build maps full of little icons: That was ok, but we should try to make the images more aesthetically pleasing using the magick package. We make each image transparent with the image_transparent() function. We can also make the resulting image a specific color with image_colorize(). I then saved the […]
