Python DataFrame – Assign New Labels to Columns

Python Dataframe Columns - Labels assigned new value

In this post, you will get a code sample related to how to assign new labels to columns in python programming while training machine learning models.  This is going to be very helpful when working with classification machine learning problem. Many a time the labels for response or dependent variable are in text format and all one wants is to assign a number such as 0, 1, 2 etc instead of text labels. Beginner-level data scientists will find this code very handy. We will look at the code for the dataset as represented in the diagram below: In the above code, you will see that class labels are named as very_low, Low, High, Middle …

Confusion Matrix Explained with Python Code Examples

confusion matrix for classification model

In this post, you will learn about the confusion matrix with examples and how it could be used as performance metrics for classification models in machine learning. Let’s take an example of a classification model which is used to predict whether a person would default on a bank loan. To build this classification model, let’s say, a historical data set of 10000 records got chosen for building the model. As part of building the model, all of the 10,000 records got labeled where each record represented a person and got labeled as “Yes” or “No” based on whether they defaulted (Yes) or not defaulted (No). Out of 10,000 labeled records, …
