Recipe Objective

Many a times while working on a dataset and using a Machine Learning model we don"t know which set of hyperparameters will give us the best result. Passing all sets of hyperparameters manually through the model and checking the result might be a hectic work and may not be possible to do.

To get the best set of hyperparameters we can use Grid Search. Grid Search passes all combinations of hyperparameters one by one into the model and check the result. Finally it gives us the set of hyperparemeters which gives the best result after passing in the model.

So this recipe is a short example of how can tune Hyper-parameters using Grid Search in Python

Step 1 - Import the library - GridSearchCv

import numpy as np from sklearn import linear_model, datasets from sklearn.model_selection import GridSearchCV

Here we have imported various modules like datasets, linear_model and GridSearchCV 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 - Setup the Data

Here we have used datasets to load the inbuilt wine dataset and we have created objects X and y to store the data and the target value respectively. dataset = datasets.load_wine() X = dataset.data y = dataset.target

Step 3 - Using Model

Here, we are using Logistic Regression as a Machine Learning model to use GridSearchCV. So we have created an object Logistic. logistic = linear_model.LogisticRegression()

Step 5 - Parameters to be optimized

Logistic Regression requires two parameters "C" and "penalty" to be optimised by GridSearchCV. So we have set these two parameters as a list of values form which GridSearchCV will select the best value of parameter. C = np.logspace(0, 4, 10) penalty = ["l1", "l2"] hyperparameters = dict(C=C, penalty=penalty)

Step 6 - Using GridSearchCV and Printing Results

Before using GridSearchCV, lets have a look on the important parameters.

  • estimator: In this we have to pass the models or functions on which we want to use GridSearchCV
  • param_grid: Dictionary or list of parameters of models or function in which GridSearchCV have to select the best.
  • Scoring: It is used as a evaluating metric for the model performance to decide the best hyperparameters, if not especified then it uses estimator score.
Making an object clf for GridSearchCV and fitting the dataset i.e X and y clf = GridSearchCV(logistic, hyperparameters, cv=5, verbose=0) best_model = clf.fit(X, y) Now we are using print statements to print the results. It will give the values of hyperparameters as a result. print("Best Penalty:", best_model.best_estimator_.get_params()["penalty"]) print("Best C:", best_model.best_estimator_.get_params()["C"]) As an output we get:

Best Penalty: l1
Best C: 59.94842503189409
