How to Create simulated data for classification in Python?

This recipe helps you Create simulated data for classification in Python

Recipe Objective

Do you ever wanted to generate dataset from python itself for any use. We can generate different types of data for different purposes from python.

So this recipe is a short example of how we can Create simulated data for classification in Python.

Step 1 - Import the library - GridSearchCv

from sklearn.datasets import make_classification import pandas as pd

Here we have imported modules pandas and make_classification from differnt libraries. We will understand the use of these later while using it in the in the code snipet.
For now just have a look on these imports.

Step 2 - Generating the data

Here we are using make_classification to generate a classification data. We have stored features and targets.

  • n_samples: It signifies the number of samples(row) we want in our dataset. By default it is set to 100
  • n_features: It signifies the number of features(columns) we want in our dataset. By default it is set to 20
  • n_informative: It is used to set the number of informative class. By default it is set to 2
  • n_redundant : It is used to set number of redundant features. The features which can be generated as random linear combinations of the informative features. By default it is set to 2
  • n_classes : This signifies the number of classes in target dataset.
features, output = make_classification(n_samples = 50, n_features = 5, n_informative = 5, n_redundant = 0, n_classes = 3, weights = [.2, .3, .8])

Step 3 - Viewing the dataset

We are viewing first 5 observation of the features. print("Feature Matrix: "); print(pd.DataFrame(features, columns=["Feature 1", "Feature 2", "Feature 3", "Feature 4", "Feature 5"]).head()) We are viewing the first 5 observation of target. print() print("Target Class: "); print(pd.DataFrame(output, columns=["TargetClass"]).head()) So the output comes as:

Feature Matrix: 
   Feature 1  Feature 2  Feature 3  Feature 4  Feature 5
0   0.833135  -1.107635  -0.728420   0.101483   1.793259
1   1.120892  -1.856847  -2.490347   1.247622   1.594469
2  -0.980409  -3.042990  -0.482548   4.075172  -1.058840
3   0.827502   2.839329   2.943324  -2.449732   0.303014
4   1.173058  -0.519413   1.240518  -2.643039   2.406873

Target Class: 
   TargetClass
0            2
1            2
2            1
3            0
4            2

Time Series LSTM forecasting
In this project, we will use time-series forecasting to predict the values of a sensor using multiple dependent variables. A variety of machine learning models are applied in this task of time series forecasting. We will see a comparison between the LSTM, ARIMA and Regression models. Classical forecasting methods like ARIMA are still popular and powerful but they lack the overall generalizability that memory-based models like LSTM offer. Every model has its own advantages and disadvantages and that will be discussed. The main objective of this article is to lead you through building a working LSTM model and it's different variants such as Vanilla, Stacked, Bidirectional, etc. There will be special focus on customized data preparation for LSTM.
