mlpack_preprocess_split

NAME

mlpack_preprocess_split - split data

SYNOPSIS

mlpack_preprocess_split -i string [-I string] [-s int] [-r double] [-V bool] [-T string] [-L string] [-t string] [-l string] [-h -v]

DESCRIPTION

This utility takes a dataset and optionally labels and splits them into a training set and a test set. Before the split, the points in the dataset are randomly reordered. The percentage of the dataset to be used as the test set can be specified with the ’--test_ratio (-r)’ parameter; the default is 0.2 (20 ).

The output training and test matrices may be saved with the ’--training_file (-t)’ and ’--test_file (-T)’ output parameters.

Optionally, labels can be also be split along with the data by specifying the ’--input_labels_file (-I)’ parameter. Splitting labels works the same way as splitting the data. The output training and test labels may be saved with the ’--training_labels_file (-l)’ and ’--test_labels_file (-L)’ output parameters, respectively.

So, a simple example where we want to split the dataset ’X.csv’ into ’X_train.csv’ and ’X_test.csv’ with 60 of the data in the training set and 40 of the dataset in the test set, we could run

$ preprocess_split --input_file X.csv --training_file X_train.csv --test_file X_test.csv --test_ratio 0.4

If we had a dataset ’X.csv’ and associated labels ’y.csv’, and we wanted to split these into ’X_train.csv’, ’y_train.csv’, ’X_test.csv’, and ’y_test.csv’, with 30 of the data in the test set, we could run

$ preprocess_split --input_file X.csv --input_labels_file y.csv --test_ratio 0.3 --training_file X_train.csv --training_labels_file y_train.csv --test_file X_test.csv --test_labels_file y_test.csv
