mlr_learners_avg | R Documentation |
Computes a weighted average of inputs. Used in the context of computing weighted averages of predictions.
Predictions are averaged using weights
(in order of appearance in the data) which are optimized using
nonlinear optimization from the package nloptr for a measure provided in
measure
. (defaults to classif.ce
for LearnerClassifAvg
and regr.mse
for LearnerRegrAvg
).
Learned weights can be obtained from $model
.
This Learner implements and generalizes an approach proposed in LeDell (2015) that uses non-linear
optimization in order to learn base-learner weights that optimize a given performance metric (e.g AUC
).
The approach is similar but not exactly the same as the one implemented as AUC
in the SuperLearner
R package (when metric
is "classif.auc"
).
For a more detailed analysis and the general idea, the reader is referred to LeDell (2015).
Note, that weights always sum to 1 by division by sum(weights)
before weighting
incoming features.

R6Class
object inheriting from mlr3::LearnerClassif
/mlr3::Learner
.
The parameters are the parameters inherited from LearnerClassif
, as well as:
measure
:: Measure
| character
Measure
to optimize for.
Will be converted to a Measure
in case it is character
.
Initialized to "classif.ce"
, i.e. misclassification error for classification
and "regr.mse"
, i.e. mean squared error for regression.
optimizer
:: Optimizer
| character(1)
Optimizer
used to find optimal thresholds.
If character
, converts to Optimizer
via opt
. Initialized to OptimizerNLoptr
.
Nloptr hyperparameters are initialized to xtol_rel = 1e-8
, algorithm = "NLOPT_LN_COBYLA"
and equal initial weights for each learner.
For more fine-grained control, it is recommended to supply a instantiated Optimizer
.
log_level
:: character(1)
| integer(1)
Set a temporary log-level for lgr::get_logger("bbotk")
. Initialized to: "warn".
