MultiClassClassifier (3.6)

KNIME WEKA nodes version 2.10.2.v202012020943 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

A metaclassifier for handling multi-class datasets with 2-class classifiers. This classifier is also capable of applying error correcting output codes for increased accuracy.

(based on WEKA 3.6)

For further options, click the 'More' - button in the dialog.

All weka dialogs have a panel where you can specify classifier-specific parameters.

Options

Class column
Choose the column that contains the target variable.
Preliminary Attribute Check

The Preliminary Attribute Check tests the underlying classifier against the DataTable specification at the inport of the node. Columns that are compatible with the classifier are marked with a green 'ok'. Columns which are potentially not compatible are assigned a red error message.

Important: If a column is marked as 'incompatible', it does not necessarily mean that the classifier cannot be executed! Sometimes, the error message 'Cannot handle String class' simply means that no nominal values are available (yet). This may change during execution of the predecessor nodes.

Capabilities: [Nominal attributes, Binary attributes, Unary attributes, Empty nominal attributes, Numeric attributes, Date attributes, Missing values, Nominal class, Binary class, Missing class values] Dependencies: [Nominal attributes, Binary attributes, Unary attributes, Empty nominal attributes, Numeric attributes, Date attributes, String attributes, Relational attributes, Missing values, No class, Missing class values, Only multi-Instance data] min # Instance: 1

Classifier Options

M: Sets the method to use. Valid values are 0 (1-against-all), 1 (random codes), 2 (exhaustive code), and 3 (1-against-1). (default 0)

R: Sets the multiplier when using random codes. (default 2.0)

P: Use pairwise coupling (only has an effect for 1-against1)

S: Random number seed. (default 1)

D: If set, classifier is run in debug mode and may output additional info to the console

W: Full name of base classifier. (default: weka.classifiers.functions.Logistic)

:

D: Turn on debugging output.

R: Set the ridge in the log-likelihood.

M: Set the maximum number of iterations (default -1, until convergence).

Views

Weka Node View
Each Weka node provides a summary view that provides information about the classification. If the test data contains a class column, an evaluation is generated.
