2 Itroductio () Almost ivariably, all the patter recoitio techiques that we have itroduced have oe or more free parameters The umber of eihbors i a knn Classificatio Rule The badwidth of the kerel fuctio i Kerel Desity Estimatio The umber of features to preserve i a Subset Selectio problem Two issues arise at this poit Model Selectio How do we select the optimal parameter(s) for a ive classificatio problem? Validatio Oce we have chose a model, how do we estimate its true error rate? The true error rate is the classifier s error rate whe tested o the ENTIRE POPULATION If we had access to a ulimited umber of examples, these questios would have a straihtforward aswer Choose the model that provides the lowest error rate o the etire populatio Ad, of course, that error rate is the true error rate However, i real applicatios oly a fiite set of examples is available This umber is usually smaller tha we would hope for! Why? Data collectio is a very expesive process Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 2
3 Itroductio (2) Oe may be tempted to use the etire traii data to select the optimal classifier, the estimate the error rate This aïve approach has two fudametal problems The fial model will ormally overfit the traii data: it will ot be able to eeralize to ew data The problem of overfitti is more proouced with models that have a lare umber of parameters The error rate estimate will be overly optimistic (lower tha the true error rate) I fact, it is ot ucommo to have 00% correct classificatio o traii data The techiques preseted i this lecture will allow you to make the best use of your (limited) data for Traii Model selectio ad Performace estimatio Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 3
4 The holdout method Split dataset ito two roups Traii set: used to trai the classifier Test set: used to estimate the error rate of the traied classifier Total umber of examples Traii Set Test Set The holdout method has two basic drawbacks I problems where we have a sparse dataset we may ot be able to afford the luxury of setti aside a portio of the dataset for testi Sice it is a sile traiadtest experimet, the holdout estimate of error rate will be misleadi if we happe to et a ufortuate split The limitatios of the holdout ca be overcome with a family of resampli methods at the expese of hiher computatioal cost Cross Validatio Radom Subsampli KFold CrossValidatio Leaveoeout CrossValidatio Bootstrap Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 4
5 Radom Subsampli Radom Subsampli performs K data splits of the etire dataset Each data split radomly selects a (fixed) umber of examples without replacemet For each data split we retrai the classifier from scratch with the traii examples ad the estimate E i with the test examples Total umber of examples Experimet Test example Experimet 2 Experimet 3 The true error estimate is obtaied as the averae of the separate estimates E i This estimate is siificatly better tha the holdout estimate E = K K i= E i Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 5
6 KFold Crossvalidatio Create a Kfold partitio of the the dataset For each of K experimets, use K folds for traii ad a differet fold for testi This procedure is illustrated i the followi fiure for K=4 Total umber of examples Experimet Experimet 2 Experimet 3 Experimet 4 Test examples KFold Cross validatio is similar to Radom Subsampli The advatae of KFold Cross validatio is that all the examples i the dataset are evetually used for both traii ad testi As before, the true error is estimated as the averae error rate o test examples E = K K E i i= Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 6
7 Leaveoeout Cross Validatio Leaveoeout is the deeerate case of KFold Cross Validatio, where K is chose as the total umber of examples For a dataset with N examples, perform N experimets For each experimet use N examples for traii ad the remaii example for testi Total umber of examples Experimet Experimet 2 Experimet 3 Sile test example Experimet N As usual, the true error is estimated as the averae error rate o test examples N E = E i N i= Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 7
8 How may folds are eeded? With a lare umber of folds + The bias of the true error rate estimator will be small (the estimator will be very accurate)  The variace of the true error rate estimator will be lare  The computatioal time will be very lare as well (may experimets) With a small umber of folds + The umber of experimets ad, therefore, computatio time are reduced + The variace of the estimator will be small  The bias of the estimator will be lare (coservative or smaller tha the true error rate) I practice, the choice of the umber of folds depeds o the size of the dataset For lare datasets, eve 3Fold Cross Validatio will be quite accurate For very sparse datasets, we may have to use leaveoeout i order to trai o as may examples as possible A commo choice for KFold Cross Validatio is K=0 Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 8
9 The bootstrap () The bootstrap is a resampli techique with replacemet From a dataset with N examples Radomly select (with replacemet) N examples ad use this set for traii The remaii examples that were ot selected for traii are used for testi This value is likely to chae from fold to fold Repeat this process for a specified umber of folds (K) As before, the true error is estimated as the averae error rate o test examples Complete dataset X X 2 X 3 X 5 Experimet X 3 X X 3 X 3 X 5 X 2 Experimet 2 X 5 X 5 X 3 X X 2 Experimet 3 X 5 X 5 X X 2 X X 3 Experimet K X X 2 X 3 X 5 Traii sets Test sets Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 9
10 The bootstrap (2) Compared to basic crossvalidatio, the bootstrap icreases the variace that ca occur i each fold [Efro ad Tibshirai, 993] This is a desirable property sice it is a more realistic simulatio of the reallife experimet from which our dataset was obtaied Cosider a classificatio problem with C classes, a total of N examples ad N i examples for each class ω i The a priori probability of choosi a example from class ω i is N i /N Oce we choose a example from class ω i, if we do ot replace it for the ext selectio, the the a priori probabilities will have chaed sice the probability of choosi a example from class ω i will ow be (N i )/N Thus, sampli with replacemet preserves the a priori probabilities of the classes throuhout the radom selectio process A additioal beefit of the bootstrap is its ability to obtai accurate measures of BOTH the bias ad variace of the true error estimate Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 0
11 Bias ad variace of a statistical estimate Cosider the problem of estimati a parameter α of a ukow distributio G To emphasize the fact that α cocers G we will refer to it as α(g) We collect N examples X={x, x 2,, x N } from the distributio G These examples defie a discrete distributio G with mass /N at each of the examples We compute the statistic α =α(g ) as a estimator of α(g) I the cotext of this lecture, α(g ) is the estimate of the true error rate for our classifier How ood is this estimator? The oodess of a statistical estimator is measured by BIAS: How much it deviates from the true value VARIANCE: How much variability it shows for differet samples X={x, x 2,, x N } of the populatio G Example: If we try to estimate the mea of the populatio with the sample mea = E [ α' ( G) ] α( G) where E [ X] x ( x) Bias G Var = E G [( α' E [ ]) ] 2 G α' The bias of the sample mea is kow to be ZERO From elemetary statistics, the stadard deviatio of the sample mea is equal to std N(N ) ( x) = ( x i x) i= This term is also kow i statistics as the STANDARD ERROR Ufortuately, there is o such a eat alebraic formula for almost ay estimate other tha the sample mea N 2 G + = dx Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity
12 Bias ad variace estimates with the bootstrap The bootstrap, with its eleat simplicity, allows us to estimate bias ad variace for practically ay statistical estimate, be it a scalar or vector (matrix) Here we will oly describe the estimatio procedure If you are iterested i more details, the textbook Advaced alorithms for eural etworks [Masters, 995] has a excellet itroductio to the bootstrap The bootstrap estimate of bias ad variace Cosider a dataset of N examples X={x, x 2,, x N } from the distributio G This dataset defies a discrete distributio G Compute α =α(g ) as our iitial estimate of α(g) Let {x *, x 2 *,, x N *} be a bootstrap dataset draw from X={x, x 2,, x N } Estimate the parameter α usi this bootstrap dataset α*(g*) Geerate K bootstrap datasets ad obtai K estimates {α* (G*), α* 2 (G*),, α* K (G*)} The ratioale i the bootstrap method is that the effect of eerati a bootstrap dataset from the distributio G is similar to the effect of obtaii the dataset X={x, x 2,, x N } from the oriial distributio G I other words, the distributio {α* (G*), α* 2 (G*),, α* K (G*)} is related to the iitial estimate α i the same fashio as multiple estimates α are related to the true value α, so the bias ad variace estimates of α are: Bias Var ( α' ) = [ α α' ] K i ( α' ) = ( α α ) K i= where 2 α = K K i= α i Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 2
13 Example: estimati bias ad variace Assume a small dataset x={3,5,2,,7} We wat to compute the bias ad variace of the sample mea α =3.6 We eerate a umber of bootstrap samples (three i this case) Assume that the first bootstrap yields the dataset {7,3,2,3,} We compute the sample mea α* =3.2 The secod bootstrap sample yields the dataset {5,,,3,7} We compute the sample mea α* 2 =3.4 The third bootstrap sample yields the dataset {2,2,7,,3} We compute the sample mea α* 3 =3.0 We averae these estimates ad obtai a averae of α* =3.2 What are the bias ad variace of the sample mea α Bias(α ) = = 0.4 Therefore, we coclude that the resampli process itroduces a dowward bias o the mea, so we would be iclied to use = 4.0 as a ubiased estimate of α Variace(α ) = ½*[( ) 2 +( ) 2 +( ) 2 ] = 0.04 NOTES We have doe this exercise for the sample mea (so you could trace the computatios), but α could be ay other statistical operator. Here lies the real power of this procedure!! How may bootstrap samples should we use? As a rule of thumb, several hudred resamples will be sufficiet for most problems Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity Adapted from [Masters,995] 3
14 Threeway data splits () If model selectio ad true error estimates are to be computed simultaeously, the data eeds to be divided ito three disjoit sets [Ripley, 996] Traii set: a set of examples used for leari: to fit the parameters of the classifier I the MLP case, we would use the traii set to fid the optimal weihts with the backprop rule Validatio set: a set of examples used to tue the parameters of a classifier I the MLP case, we would use the validatio set to fid the optimal umber of hidde uits or determie a stoppi poit for the backpropaatio alorithm Test set: a set of examples used oly to assess the performace of a fullytraied classifier I the MLP case, we would use the test to estimate the error rate after we have chose the fial model (MLP size ad actual weihts) After assessi the fial model o the test set, YOU MUST NOT tue the model ay further! Why separate test ad validatio sets? The error rate estimate of the fial model o validatio data will be biased (smaller tha the true error rate) sice the validatio set is used to select the fial model After assessi the fial model o the test set, YOU MUST NOT tue the model ay further! Procedure outlie. Divide the available data ito traii, validatio ad test set 2. Select architecture ad traii parameters 3. Trai the model usi the traii set 4. Evaluate the model usi the validatio set 5. Repeat steps 2 throuh 4 usi differet architectures ad traii parameters 6. Select the best model ad trai it it usi data from the traii ad validatio sets 7. Assess this fial model usi the test set This outlie assumes a holdout method If CrossValidatio or Bootstrap are used, steps 3 ad 4 have to be repeated for each of the K folds Itroductio to Patter Aalysis Ricardo GutierrezOsua Texas A&M Uiversity 4
