Description

Generic predict function for performing predictions using results of model fitting functions, such as td_glm_mle(), td_glml1l2_mle(), td_decision_forest_mle(), td_decision_tree_mle(), td_naivebayes_mle(), td_naivebayes_textclassifier_mle(), td_svm_sparse_mle(), td_arima_mle(), td_xgboost_mle(), td_knn_recommender_mle(), td_lin_reg_mle(), td_adaboost_mle(). This function invokes respective predict methods, based on the class of the the model (first argument).

Usage

  predict(object, ...)

Arguments

object

Required Argument.
Model object can be one of the following class:

  1. td_adaboost_mle

  2. td_glm_mle

  3. td_glml1l2_mle

  4. td_decision_forest_mle

  5. td_decision_tree_mle

  6. td_naivebayes_mle

  7. td_naivebayes_textclassifier_mle

  8. td_svm_sparse_mle

  9. td_svm_dense_mle

  10. td_arima_mle

  11. td_lar_mle

  12. td_xgboost_mle

  13. td_knn_recommender_mle

  14. td_lin_reg_mle

It is usually created using the following methods:

  1. td_adaboost_mle

  2. td_glm_mle

  3. td_glml1l2_mle

  4. td_decision_forest_mle

  5. td_decision_tree_mle

  6. td_naivebayes_mle

  7. td_naivebayes_textclassifier_mle

  8. td_svm_sparse_mle

  9. td_svm_dense_mle

  10. td_arima_mle

  11. td_lar_mle

  12. td_xgboost_mle

  13. td_knn_recommender_mle

  14. td_lin_reg_mle

...

Additional arguments useful for predictions.

Value

Return value from predict depends on the class of the object.
