"ContingencyTable" (Machine Learning Method)

Details & Suboptions

  • A contingency table models the probability distribution of a nominal vector space by storing a probability value for each possible outcome.
  • If the data is unidimensional, the distribution corresponds to a categorical distribution.
  • The following options can be given:
  • "AdditiveSmoothing"Automaticvalue to be added to each count
  • If the data contains numerical values, they are discretized. The resulting distribution is still a valid distribution in the original space.
  • Information[LearnedDistribution[],"MethodOption"] can be used to extract the values of options chosen by the automation system.
  • LearnDistribution[,FeatureExtractor"Minimal"] can be used to remove most preprocessing and directly access the method.
