Recipe Objective

We have worked on various models and used them to predict the output. Here is one such model that is LightGBM which is an important model and can be used as Regressor and Classifier.

So this is the recipe on how we can use LightGBM Classifier and Regressor.

Step 1 - Import the library

from sklearn import datasets from sklearn import metrics from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import seaborn as sns plt.style.use('ggplot') import lightgbm as ltb

We have imported all the modules that would be needed like metrics, datasets, ltb, train_test_split etc. We will see the use of each modules step by step further.

Step 2 - Setting up the Data for Classifier

We have imported inbuilt wine dataset from the module datasets and stored the data in X and the target in y. We have also used train_test_split to split the dataset into two parts such that 30% of data is in test and rest in train. dataset = datasets.load_wine() X = dataset.data; y = dataset.target X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.30)

Step 3 - Using LightGBM Classifier and calculating the scores

We have made an object for the model and fitted the train data. Then we have used the test data to test the model by predicting the output from the model for test data. model = ltb.LGBMClassifier() model.fit(X_train, y_train) print(); print(model) expected_y = y_test predicted_y = model.predict(X_test)

Now We are calcutaing other scores for the model using classification_report and confusion matrix by passing expected and predicted values of target of test set. print(metrics.classification_report(expected_y, predicted_y)) print(metrics.confusion_matrix(expected_y, predicted_y))

Step 4 - Setting up the Data for Regressor

We have imported inbuilt boston dataset from the module datasets and stored the data in X and the target in y. We have also used train_test_split to split the dataset into two parts such that 30% of data is in test and rest in train. dataset = datasets.load_boston() X = dataset.data; y = dataset.target X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.30)

Step 5 - Using LightGBM Regressor and calculating the scores

We have made an object for the model and fitted the train data. Then we have used the test data to test the model by predicting the output from the model for test data. model = ltb.LGBMRegressor() model.fit(X_train, y_train) print(); print(model) expected_y = y_test predicted_y = model.predict(X_test)

Now We are calcutaing other scores for the model using r_2 score and mean_squared_log_error by passing expected and predicted values of target of test set. print(metrics.r2_score(expected_y, predicted_y)) print(metrics.mean_squared_log_error(expected_y, predicted_y))

Step 6 - Ploting the model

We are ploting the regressor model: plt.figure(figsize=(10,10)) sns.regplot(expected_y, predicted_y, fit_reg=True, scatter_kws={"s": 100}) So the final output comes as:

LGBMClassifier(boosting_type='gbdt', class_weight=None, colsample_bytree=1.0,
        importance_type='split', learning_rate=0.1, max_depth=-1,

        n_estimators=100, n_jobs=-1, num_leaves=31, objective=None,
        random_state=None, reg_alpha=0.0, reg_lambda=0.0, silent=True,
        subsample=1.0, subsample_for_bin=200000, subsample_freq=0)
