What is eval function in R?

This recipe explains what is eval function in R

Recipe Objective

What is eval () function in R? An eval () function evaluates the input value and returns an output result. The evaluate function is mostly applied over an expression. The eval function returns an error when given a a non-existent data object as input. This recipe gives an example on how to use an eval()

Step 1 - Define a vector

a <- 58 b <- 63 c <- expression(a+b)

Step 2 - Apply eval()

eval() returns the result of the input expression

eval(c)
"Output of the code returns" : 121

Step 3 - Define a vector (string)

For string objects, parse () has to be passed along with the eval() for getting the output of the expression.

a <- "58" b <- "53" eval(parse(text="58+63"))
"Output of the code is : " 121

Grouping similar schools/colleges using scorecard and other factors
Use cluster analysis to identify the groups of characteristically similar schools in the College Scorecard dataset. Considerations: Clustering Algorithm Data Preparation How will you deal with missing values? Categorical variables? Feature intercorrelations? Feature normalization or scaling? Dimensionality reduction? Hyperparameters How will you set the parameters -- the algorithm's knobs and dials, so to speak -- in order to achieve valid and useful output? Interpretation Is it possible to explain what each cluster represents? Did you retain or prepare a set of features that enables a meaningful interpretation of the clusters? Do the compositions of the clusters seem to make sense? Validation How will you measure the validity of your clustering process? Which metrics will you use and how will you apply them?

Convolutional RCCn's for extracting the text out of images
CRNNs combine both convolutional and recurrent architectures and is widely used in text detection and optical character recognition (OCR). In this project, we are going to use a CRNN architecture to detect text in sample images. The data we are going to use is TRSynth100k from Kaggle. Given an image containing some text, the goal here is to correctly identify the text using the CRNN architecture. We are going to train the model end-to-end from scratch.
