Description

This function balances multiclass training datasets. In a dataframe with n classes and m rows, the resulting dataframe will have m / n rows per class. SCUT_parallel() distributes each over/undersampling task across multiple cores. Speedup usually occurs only if there are many classes using one of the slower resampling techniques (e.g. undersample_mclust()). Note that SCUT_parallel() will always run on one core on Windows.

Arguments

data

Numeric data frame.

cls_col

The column in data with class membership.

oversample

Oversampling method. Must be a function with the signature foo(data, cls, cls_col, m, ...) that returns a data frame, one of the oversample_* functions, or resample_random().

undersample

Undersampling method. Must be a function with the signature foo(data, cls, cls_col, m, ...) that returns a data frame, one of the undersample_* functions, or resample_random().

osamp_opts

List of options passed to the oversampling function.

usamp_opts

List of options passed to the undersampling function.

ncores

Number of cores to use with SCUT_parallel().

Details

Custom functions can be used to perform under/oversampling (see the required signature below). Parameters represented by ... should be passsed via osamp_opts or usamp_opts as a list.

Value

A dataframe with equal class distribution.
