NAME

Algorithm::LibLinear - A Perl binding for LIBLINEAR, a library for classification/regression using linear SVM and logistic regression.

SYNOPSIS

  use Algorithm::LibLinear;
  # Constructs a model for L2-regularized L2 loss support vector classification.
  my $learner = Algorithm::LibLinear->new(
    cost => 1,
    epsilon => 0.01,
    solver => 'L2R_L2LOSS_SVC_DUAL',
    weights => [
      +{ label => 1, weight => 1, },
      +{ label => -1, weight => 1, },
    ],
  );
  # Loads a training data set from DATA filehandle.
  my $data_set = Algorithm::LibLinear::DataSet->load(fh => \*DATA);
  # Executes cross validation.
  my $accuracy = $learner->cross_validation(data_set => $data_set, num_folds => 5);
  # Executes training.
  my $classifier = $learner->train(data_set => $data_set);
  # Determines which (+1 or -1) is the class for the given feature to belong.
  my $class_label = $classifier->predict(feature => +{ 1 => 0.38, 2 => -0.5, ... });

DESCRIPTION

Algorithm::LibLinear is an XS module that provides features of LIBLINEAR (http://www.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~cjlin/liblinear/), a fast C library for classification and regression.

METHODS

new([cost => 1] [, epsilon => 0.1] [, loss_sensitivity => 0.1] [, solver => 'L2R_L2LOSS_SVC_DUAL'] [, weights => []])

Constructor. You can set several named parameters:

cost

Penalty cost for misclassification (i.e., -c option for LIBLINEAR's train command.)

epsilon

Termination criterion (-e.)

Default value of this parameter depends on the value of solver.

loss_sensitivity

Epsilon in loss function of SVR (-p.)

solver

Kind of solver (-s.)

For classification:

'L2R_LR' - L2-regularized logistic regression
'L2R_L2LOSS_SVC_DUAL' - L2-regularized L2-loss SVC (dual problem)
'L2R_L2LOSS_SVC' - L2-regularized L2-loss SVC (primal problem)
'L2R_L1LOSS_SVC_DUAL' - L2-regularized L1-loss SVC (dual problem)
'MCSVM_CS' - Crammer-Singer multiclass SVM
'L1R_L2LOSS_SVC' - L1-regularized L2-loss SVC
'L1R_LR' - L1-regularized logistic regression (primal problem)
'L1R_LR_DUAL' - L1-regularized logistic regression (dual problem)

For regression:

'L2R_L2LOSS_SVR' - L2-regularized L2-loss SVR (primal problem)
'L2R_L2LOSS_SVR_DUAL' - L2-regularized L2-loss SVR (dual problem)
'L2R_L1LOSS_SVR_DUAL' - L2-regularized L1-loss SVR (dual problem)
weights

Weights adjust the cost parameter of different classes (-wi.)

For example,

  my $learner = Algorithm::LibLinear->new(
    weights => [
      +{ label => 1, weight => 0.5 },
      +{ label => 2, weight => 1 },
      +{ label => 3, weight => 0.5 },
    ],
  );

is giving a doubling weight for class 2. This means that samples belonging to class 2 have stronger effect than other samples belonging class 1 or 3 on learning.

This option is useful when the number of training samples of each class is not balanced.

cross_validation(data_set => $data_set, num_folds => $num_folds)

Evaluates training parameter using N-fold cross validation method. Given data set will be split into N parts. N-1 of them will be used as a training set and the rest 1 part will be used as a test set. The evaluation iterates N times using each different part as a test set. Then average accuracy is returned as result.

train(data_set => $data_set)

Executes training and returns a trained Algorithm::LibLinear::Model instance. data_set is same as the cross_validation's.
