Input and Output Columns
This trainer outputs the following columns:
|Output Column Name||Column Type||Description|
||Vector of Single||The scores of all classes. Higher value means higher probability to fall into the associated class. If the i-th element has the largest value, the predicted label index would be i. Note that i is zero-based index.|
||key type||The predicted label's index. If its value is i, the actual label would be the i-th category in the key-valued input label type.|
|Machine learning task||Multiclass classification|
|Is normalization required?||Yes|
|Is caching required?||No|
|Required NuGet in addition to Microsoft.ML||None|
|Exportable to ONNX||Yes|
Training Algorithm Details
is a probabilistic classifier that can be used for multiclass problems.
Using Bayes' theorem, the conditional probability for a sample belonging to a class
can be calculated based on the sample count for each feature combination groups.
However, Naive Bayes Classifier is feasible only if the number of features and
the values each feature can take is relatively small.
It assumes independence among the presence of features in a class even though
they may be dependent on each other.
This multi-class trainer accepts "binary" feature values of type float:
feature values that are greater than zero are treated as
true and feature values
that are less or equal to 0 are treated as

Append a 'caching checkpoint' to the estimator chain. This will ensure that the downstream estimators will be trained against cached data. It is helpful to have a caching checkpoint before trainers that take multiple data passes.
Given an estimator, return a wrapping object that will call a delegate once Fit(IDataView) is called. It is often important for an estimator to return information about what was fit, which is why the Fit(IDataView) method returns a specifically typed object, rather than just a general ITransformer. However, at the same time, IEstimator<TTransformer> are often formed into pipelines with many objects, so we may need to build a chain of estimators via EstimatorChain<TLastTransformer> where the estimator for which we want to get the transformer is buried somewhere in this chain. For that scenario, we can through this method attach a delegate that will be called once fit is called.
