ddalpha.getErrorRateCVR Documentation

Test DD-Classifier


Performs a cross-validation procedure over the given data. On each step every numchunks observation is removed from the data, the DD-classifier is trained on these data and tested on the removed observations.


ddalpha.getErrorRateCV (data, numchunks = 10,  ...)



Matrix containing training sample where each of n rows is one object of the training sample where first d entries are inputs and the last entry is output (class label).


number of subsets of testing data. Equals to the number of times the classifier is trained.


additional parameters passed to ddalpha.train



the part of incorrectly classified data


the mean training time


the standard deviation of training time
