updating the GISS dataset

Introduction I was watching a video of David Suzuki being interviewed on Australian TV, and there were some questions about the “pause” in temperature in the GISS dataset. I thought I’d like to check for myself, and reasoned that I may as well update the giss dataset in the ocedata R package. As always seems to be the case, the data format is changed...

Introduction to Logistic Regression with R

In my previous blog I have explained about linear regression. In today’s post I will explain about logistic regression.         Consider a scenario where we need to predict a medical condition of a patient (HBP) ,HAVE HIGH BP or NO HIGH BP, based on some observed symptoms – Age, weight, Issmoking, Systolic...

Predicting creditability using logistic regression in R: cross validating the classifier (part 2)

Now that we fitted the classifier and run some preliminary tests, in order to get a grasp at how our model is doing when predicting creditability we need to run some cross validation methods.Cross validation is a model evaluation method that does not use conventional fitting measures (such as R^2 of linear regression) when trying to evaluate the model....

How to perform a Logistic Regression in R

Logistic regression is a method for fitting a regression curve, y = f(x), when y is a categorical variable. The typical use of this model is predicting y given a set of predictors x. The predictors can be continuous, categorical or a mix of both. The categorical variable y, in general, can assume different values.

Logistic Regression in R – Part Two

My previous post covered the basics of logistic regression. We must now examine the model to understand how well it fits the data and generalizes to other observations. The evaluation process involves the assessment of three distinct areas – goodness of fit, tests of individual predictors, and validation of predicted values – in order to

Predicting creditability using logistic regression in R (part 1)

September 2, 2015
By

As I said in the previous post, this summer I’ve been learning some of the most popular machine learning algorithms and trying to apply what I’ve learned to real world scenarios. The German Credit dataset provided by the UCI Machine Learning Repository is another great example of application.The German Credit dataset contains 1000 samples of applicants asking for...

Searching Twitter with ArcGIS Pro Using R

I committed to testing this a long time ago, however, a number of other projects intervened, so I have only just got around to writing up this short tutorial. One of the exciting things from the ESRI Developers Conference this year was the launch of the R-ArcGIS bridge. In simple terms, this enables you to run R...
