Arguments

.data

dataframe

formula

formula

tune_method

method of tuning. defaults to grid

event_level

for binary classification, which factor level is the positive class. specify "second" for second level

n_fold

integer. n folds in resamples

n_iter

n iterations for tuning (bayes); paramter grid size (grid)

seed

seed

save_output

FASLE. If set to TRUE will write the output as an rds file

parallel

default TRUE; If set to TRUE, will enable parallel processing on resamples for grid tuning

trees

# Trees (xgboost: nrounds) (type: integer, default: 15L)

min_n

Minimal Node Size (xgboost: min_child_weight) (type: integer, default: 1L); [typical range: 2-10] Keep small value for highly imbalanced class data where leaf nodes can have smaller size groups. Otherwise increase size to prevent overfitting outliers.

mtry

# Randomly Selected Predictors (xgboost: colsample_bynode) (type: numeric, range 0 - 1) (or type: integer if count = TRUE)

tree_depth

Tree Depth (xgboost: max_depth) (type: integer, default: 6L); Typical values: 3-10

learn_rate

Learning Rate (xgboost: eta) (type: double, default: 0.3); Typical values: 0.01-0.3

loss_reduction

Minimum Loss Reduction (xgboost: gamma) (type: double, default: 0.0); range: 0 to Inf; typical value: 0 - 20 assuming low-mid tree depth

sample_size

Proportion Observations Sampled (xgboost: subsample) (type: double, default: 1.0); Typical values: 0.5 - 1

stop_iter

# Iterations Before Stopping (xgboost: early_stop) (type: integer, default: 15L) only enabled if validation set is provided

counts

if TRUE specify mtry as an integer number of cols. Default FALSE to specify mtry as fraction of cols from 0 to 1

tree_method

xgboost tree_method. default is auto. reference: tree method docs

monotone_constraints

an integer vector with length of the predictor cols, of -1, 1, 0 corresponding to decreasing, increasing, and no constraint respectively for the index of the predictor col. reference: monotonicity docs.

num_parallel_tree

should be set to the size of the forest being trained. default 1L

lambda

[default=1] L2 regularization term on weights. Increasing this value will make model more conservative.

alpha

[default=0] L1 regularization term on weights. Increasing this value will make model more conservative.

scale_pos_weight

[default=1] Control the balance of positive and negative weights, useful for unbalanced classes. if set to TRUE, calculates sum(negative instances) / sum(positive instances). If first level is majority class, use values < 1, otherwise normally values >1 are used to balance the class distribution.

verbosity

[default=1] Verbosity of printing messages. Valid values are 0 (silent), 1 (warning), 2 (info), 3 (debug).

Details

Default is to tune all 7 xgboost parameters. Individual parameter values can be optionally fixed to reduce tuning complexity.

Value

workflow object
