Spark ML -- Logistic Regression

Perform classification using logistic regression.

  elastic_net_param = 0, reg_param = 0, max_iter = 100L,
  threshold = 0.5, thresholds = NULL, tol = 1e-06, weight_col = NULL,
  aggregation_depth = 2L, features_col = "features", label_col = "label",
  family = "auto", prediction_col = "prediction",
  probability_col = "probability", raw_prediction_col = "rawPrediction",
  uid = random_string("logistic_regression_"), ...)



A spark_connection, ml_pipeline, or a tbl_spark.


Used when x is a tbl_spark. R formula as a character string or a formula. This is used to transform the input dataframe before fitting, see ft_r_formula for details.


Boolean; should the model be fit with an intercept term?


ElasticNet mixing parameter, in range [0, 1]. For alpha = 0, the penalty is an L2 penalty. For alpha = 1, it is an L1 penalty.


Regularization parameter (aka lambda)


The maximum number of iterations to use.


in binary classification prediction, in range [0, 1].


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 p/t is predicted, where p is the original probability of that class and t is the class's threshold.


Param for the convergence tolerance for iterative algorithms.


The name of the column to use as weights for the model fit.


(Spark 2.1.0+) Suggested depth for treeAggregate (>= 2).


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 ft_r_formula.


Label column name. The column should be a numeric column. Usually this column is output by ft_r_formula.


(Spark 2.1.0+) Param for the name of family which is a description of the label distribution to be used in the model. Supported options: "auto", "binomial", and "multinomial."


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; currently unused.


The object returned depends on the class of x.

  • spark_connection: When x is a spark_connection, the function returns an instance of a ml_predictor object. The object contains a pointer to a Spark Predictor object and can be used to compose Pipeline objects.

  • ml_pipeline: When x is a ml_pipeline, the function returns a ml_pipeline with the predictor appended to the pipeline.

  • tbl_spark: When x is a tbl_spark, a predictor is constructed then immediately fit with the input tbl_spark, returning a prediction model.

  • tbl_spark, with formula: specified When formula is specified, the input tbl_spark is first transformed using a RFormula transformer before being fit by the predictor. The object returned in this case is a ml_model which is a wrapper of a ml_pipeline_model.
