balanced weight for imbalanced classification model

Balanced Weights For Imbalanced Classification

The balanced weight is one of the widely used methods for imbalanced classification models. It modifies the class weights of the majority and minority classes during the model training process to achieve better model results. Unlike the oversampling and under-sampling methods, the balanced weights methods do not modify the minority and majority class ratio. Instead, …

Isolation Forest For Anomaly Detection And Imbalanced Classification

Isolation Forest For Anomaly Detection

Isolation forest uses the number of tree splits to identify anomalies or minority classes in an imbalanced dataset. The idea is that anomaly data points take fewer splits because the density around the anomalies is low. Python’s sklearn library has an implementation for the isolation forest model. Isolation forest is an unsupervised algorithm, where the …

LASSO (L1) vs Ridge (L2) vs Elastic Net Regularization for Classification Model

LASSO (L1) vs Ridge (L2) vs Elastic Net Regularization for Classification Model

LASSO (Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator) is also called L1 regularization, and Ridge is also called L2 regularization. Elastic Net is the combination of LASSO and Ridge. All three are techniques commonly used in machine learning to correct overfitting. In this tutorial, we will cover Resources for this post: Step 0: LASSO (L1) vs …

Local Outlier Factor (LOF) For Anomaly Detection

Local Outlier Factor (LOF) For Anomaly Detection

Local Outlier Factor (LOF) is an unsupervised model for outlier detection. It compares the local density of each data point with its neighbors and identifies the data points with a lower density as anomalies or outliers. In this tutorial, we will talk about Resources for this post: Step 1: Import Libraries The first step is …
