calcError(self, data, test)

View Source
@spec calcError(t(), Evision.ML.TrainData.t(), boolean()) ::
  {number(), Evision.Mat.t()} | {:error, String.t()}

Computes error on the training or test dataset

Positional Arguments
  • self: Evision.ML.Boost.t()

  • data: Evision.ML.TrainData.

    the training data

  • test: bool.

    if true, the error is computed over the test subset of the data, otherwise it's computed over the training subset of the data. Please note that if you loaded a completely different dataset to evaluate already trained classifier, you will probably want not to set the test subset at all with TrainData::setTrainTestSplitRatio and specify test=false, so that the error is computed for the whole new set. Yes, this sounds a bit confusing.

Return
  • retval: float

  • resp: Evision.Mat.

    the optional output responses.

The method uses StatModel::predict to compute the error. For regression models the error is computed as RMS, for classifiers - as a percent of missclassified samples (0%-100%).
