mae_measure module¶
The mean absolute error to measure the quality of a regression algorithm.
The mean absolute error (MAE) is defined by
where \(\hat{y}\) are the predictions and \(y\) are the data points.

MLErrorMeasure
The mean absolute error measure for machine learning.
- Parameters:
algo (MLRegressionAlgo) – A machine learning algorithm for supervised learning.
fit_transformers (bool) –

- evaluate(method='learn', samples=None, multioutput=True, **options)¶
Evaluate the quality measure.
- Parameters:
method (str) –
The name of the method to evaluate the quality measure.

If
True
, return the quality measure for each output component. Otherwise, average these measures.By default it is set to True.
**options (OptionType | None) – The options of the estimation method (e.g.
test_data
for the test method,n_replicates
for the bootstrap one, …).

If
True
, return the quality measure for each output component. Otherwise, average these measures.By default it is set to True.
seed (None | None) – The seed of the pseudo-random number generator. If
None
, then an unpredictable generator will be used.as_dict (bool) –
Whether to express the measure as a dictionary whose keys are the output names.
By default it is set to False.

The value of the quality measure.
- Return type:
MeasureType
- evaluate_kfolds(n_folds=5, samples=None, multioutput=True, randomize=True, seed=None, as_dict=False)¶
Evaluate the quality measure using the k-folds technique.

None
, use the whole learning dataset.multioutput (bool) –
If
True
, return the quality measure for each output component. Otherwise, average these measures.By default it is set to True.
randomize (bool) –
Whether to shuffle the samples before dividing them in folds.
By default it is set to True.
seed (int | None) – The seed of the pseudo-random number generator. If
None
, then an unpredictable generator will be used.as_dict (bool) –
Whether to express the measure as a dictionary whose keys are the output names.
By default it is set to False.
- Returns:
The value of the quality measure.
- Return type:
MeasureType
- evaluate_learn(samples=None, multioutput=True, as_dict=False)¶
Evaluate the quality measure from the learning dataset.
- Parameters:
samples (Sequence[int] | None) – The indices of the learning samples. If
None
, use the whole learning dataset.multioutput (bool) –
If
True
, return the quality measure for each output component. Otherwise, average these measures.By default it is set to True.
as_dict (bool) –
Whether to express the measure as a dictionary whose keys are the output names.

- classmethod is_better(val1, val2)¶
Compare the quality between two values.
This method returns
True
if the first one is better than the second one.For most measures, a smaller value is “better” than a larger one (MSE etc.). But for some, like an R2-measure, higher values are better than smaller ones. This comparison method correctly handles this, regardless of the type of measure.
- BOOTSTRAP: ClassVar[str] = 'bootstrap'¶
The name of the method to evaluate the measure by bootstrap.
- KFOLDS: ClassVar[str] = 'kfolds'¶
The name of the method to evaluate the measure by cross-validation.
