Creates and trains multilayer perceptron on a Spark DataFrame.

ml_multilayer_perceptron(x, response, features, layers, iter.max = 100,
seed = sample(.Machine$integer.max, 1), ml.options = ml_options(), ...)

## Arguments

x |
An object coercable to a Spark DataFrame (typically, a
`tbl_spark` ). |

response |
The name of the response vector (as a length-one character
vector), or a formula, giving a symbolic description of the model to be
fitted. When `response` is a formula, it is used in preference to other
parameters to set the `response` , `features` , and `intercept`
parameters (if available). Currently, only simple linear combinations of
existing parameters is supposed; e.g. `response ~ feature1 + feature2 + ...` .
The intercept term can be omitted by using `- 1` in the model fit. |

features |
The name of features (terms) to use for the model fit. |

layers |
A numeric vector describing the layers -- each element in the vector
gives the size of a layer. For example, `c(4, 5, 2)` would imply three layers,
with an input (feature) layer of size 4, an intermediate layer of size 5, and an
output (class) layer of size 2. |

iter.max |
The maximum number of iterations to use. |

seed |
A random seed. Set this value if you need your results to be
reproducible across repeated calls. |

ml.options |
Optional arguments, used to affect the model generated. See
`ml_options` for more details. |

... |
Optional arguments. The `data` argument can be used to
specify the data to be used when `x` is a formula; this allows calls
of the form `ml_linear_regression(y ~ x, data = tbl)` , and is
especially useful in conjunction with `do` . |
