spark.mlp {SparkR} | R Documentation |

`spark.mlp`

fits a multi-layer perceptron neural network model against a SparkDataFrame.
Users can call `summary`

to print a summary of the fitted model, `predict`

to make
predictions on new data, and `write.ml`

/`read.ml`

to save/load fitted models.
Only categorical data is supported.

`data` |
a |

`formula` |
a symbolic description of the model to be fitted. Currently only a few formula operators are supported, including '~', '.', ':', '+', and '-'. |

`...` |
additional arguments passed to the method. |

`layers` |
integer vector containing the number of nodes for each layer. |

`blockSize` |
blockSize parameter. |

`solver` |
solver parameter, supported options: "gd" (minibatch gradient descent) or "l-bfgs". |

`maxIter` |
maximum iteration number. |

`tol` |
convergence tolerance of iterations. |

`stepSize` |
stepSize parameter. |

`seed` |
seed parameter for weights initialization. |

`initialWeights` |
initialWeights parameter for weights initialization, it should be a numeric vector. |

`handleInvalid` |
How to handle invalid data (unseen labels or NULL values) in features and label column of string type. Supported options: "skip" (filter out rows with invalid data), "error" (throw an error), "keep" (put invalid data in a special additional bucket, at index numLabels). Default is "error". |

`object` |
a Multilayer Perceptron Classification Model fitted by |

`newData` |
a SparkDataFrame for testing. |

`path` |
the directory where the model is saved. |

`overwrite` |
overwrites or not if the output path already exists. Default is FALSE which means throw exception if the output path exists. |

`spark.mlp`

returns a fitted Multilayer Perceptron Classification Model.

`summary`

returns summary information of the fitted model, which is a list.
The list includes `numOfInputs`

(number of inputs), `numOfOutputs`

(number of outputs), `layers`

(array of layer sizes including input
and output layers), and `weights`

(the weights of layers).
For `weights`

, it is a numeric vector with length equal to the expected
given the architecture (i.e., for 8-10-2 network, 112 connection weights).

`predict`

returns a SparkDataFrame containing predicted labeled in a column named
"prediction".
