Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-6348) Enable useFeatureScaling in SVMWithSGD
Date Mon, 16 Mar 2015 23:43:38 GMT


Joseph K. Bradley commented on SPARK-6348:

Providing this feature sounds good.

Side note: SVMs should not be run using categorical variables; for those, you should probably
use a one-hot encoding.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: MLlib
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.1
>            Reporter: tanyinyan
>            Priority: Minor
>   Original Estimate: 2h
>  Remaining Estimate: 2h
> Currently,useFeatureScaling are set to false by default in class GeneralizedLinearAlgorithm,
and it is only enabled in LogisticRegressionWithLBFGS.
> SVMWithSGD class is a private class,train methods are provide in SVMWithSGD object. So
there is no way to set useFeatureScaling when using SVM.
> I am using SVM on dataset(, train
on the first day's dataset(ignore field id/device_id/device_ip, all remaining fields are concidered
as categorical variable, and sparsed before SVM) and predict on the same data with threshold
cleared, the predict result are all  negative. Then i set useFeatureScaling to true, the predict
result are normal(including negative and positive result)
