Spark ML -- Decision Trees
Perform classification and regression using decision trees.

Maximum depth of the tree (>= 0); that is, the maximum number of nodes separating any leaves from the root of the tree.
The maximum number of bins used for discretizing continuous features and for choosing how to split on features at each node. More bins give higher granularity.
Minimum number of instances each child must have after split.
Minimum information gain for a split to be considered at a tree node. Should be >= 0, defaults to 0.
Criterion used for information gain calculation. Supported: "entropy"
and "gini" (default) for classification and "variance" (default) for regression. For
Seed for random numbers.
Thresholds in multi-class classification to adjust the probability of predicting each class. Array must have length equal to the number of classes, with values > 0 excepting that at most one value may be 0. The class with largest value
Set checkpoint interval (>= 1) or disable checkpoint (-1). E.g. 10 means that the cache will get checkpointed every 10 iterations, defaults to 10.
Maximum memory in MB allocated to histogram aggregation. If too small, then 1 node will be split per iteration, and its aggregates may exceed this size. Defaults to 256.
Features column name, as a length-one character vector. The column should be single vector column of numeric values. Usually this column is output by
Label column name. The column should be a numeric column. Usually this column is output by
Prediction column name.
Column name for predicted class conditional probabilities.
Raw prediction (a.k.a. confidence) column name.
A character string used to uniquely identify the ML estimator.
Optional arguments; see Details.
The type of model to fit.
(Optional) Column name for the biased sample variance of prediction.
(Deprecated) The name of the response column (as a length-one character vector.)
(Deprecated) The name of features (terms) to use for the model fit.
The object returned depends on the class of
spark_connection, the function returns an instance of a
ml_predictorobject. The object contains a pointer to a Spark
Predictorobject and can be used to compose
ml_pipeline, the function returns a
ml_pipelinewith the predictor appended to the pipeline.
tbl_spark, a predictor is constructed then immediately fit with the input
tbl_spark, returning a prediction model.

formulais specified, the input
tbl_sparkis first transformed using a
RFormulatransformer before being fit by the predictor. The object returned in this case is a

features) is specified, the function returns a
ml_model object wrapping a
ml_pipeline_model which contains data pre-processing transformers, the ML predictor, and, for classification models, a post-processing transformer that converts predictions into class labels. For classification, an optional argument
predicted_label_col (defaults to
"predicted_label") can be used to specify the name of the predicted label column. In addition to the fitted
ml_model objects also contain a
ml_pipeline object where the ML predictor stage is an estimator ready to be fit against data. This is utilized by
type = "pipeline" to faciliate model refresh workflows.
ml_decision_tree is a wrapper around
ml_decision_tree_classifier.tbl_spark and calls the appropriate method based on model type.
