SgdCalibratedTrainer Class


The IEstimator<TTransformer> for training logistic regression using a parallel stochastic gradient method. The trained model is calibrated and can produce probability by feeding the output value of the linear function to a PlattCalibrator.

To create this trainer, use SgdCalibrated or SgdCalibrated(Options).

Input and Output Columns

The input label column data must be Boolean. The input features column data must be a known-sized vector of Single.

This trainer outputs the following columns:

Output Column Name Column Type Description
Score Single The unbounded score that was calculated by the model.
PredictedLabel Boolean The predicted label, based on the sign of the score. A negative score maps to false and a positive score maps to true.
Probability Single The probability calculated by calibrating the score of having true as the label. Probability value is in range [0, 1].

Training Algorithm Details

The Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) is one of the popular stochastic optimization procedures that can be integrated into several machine learning tasks to achieve state-of-the-art performance. This trainer implements the Hogwild Stochastic Gradient Descent for binary classification that supports multi-threading without any locking. If the associated optimization problem is sparse, Hogwild Stochastic Gradient Descent achieves a nearly optimal rate of convergence. For more details about Hogwild Stochastic Gradient Descent can be found here.

The feature column that the trainer expects.

(Inherited from TrainerEstimatorBase<TTransformer,TModel>)

The label column that the trainer expects. Can be null, which indicates that label is not used for training.

(Inherited from TrainerEstimatorBase<TTransformer,TModel>)

The weight column that the trainer expects. Can be null, which indicates that weight is not used for training.

Extension Methods

WithOnFitDelegate<TTransformer>(IEstimator<TTransformer>, Action<TTransformer>)

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.
