[…] g all groups and one-vs.-rest specification (i.e. UCa vs. non-UCa) using the randomForest R package. The optimal value for the mtry parameter was found using 100 five-fold cross-validations using the caret package ( train-function and ntree = 1000. Feature importance for both classification tasks were extracted using the importance function […]


Prediction of Return to original work after an Industrial Accident Using Machine Learning and Comparison of Techniques

[…] ning model, we transformed and reconstructed the models by excluding unimportant variables and/or tuning hyper-parameters to improve the model's performance with automated process using the R package caret (R Foundation, Vienna, Austria). Variable importance was assessed by visualizing the varImp function of the package.The best models with the highest predictive ability for each technique were se […]
