EnsembleSelection
(base_estimators, scorer=None, n_estimators=0.2, min_score=0.2, correlation='pearson', min_correlation=0.6, cv=None, n_jobs=1, verbose=0)¶ Ensemble selection for survival analysis that accounts for a score and correlations between predictions.
The ensemble is pruned during training only according to the specified score (accuracy) and additionally for prediction according to the correlation between predictions (diversity).
The hillclimbing is based on crossvalidation to avoid having to create a separate validation set.
Parameters:  base_estimators : list
List of (name, estimator) tuples (implementing fit/predict) that are part of the ensemble.
 scorer : callable
Function with signature
func(estimator, X_test, y_test, **test_predict_params)
that evaluates the error of the prediction on the test data. The function should return a scalar value. Larger values of the score are assumed to be better. n_estimators : float or int, optional, default: 0.2
If a float, the percentage of estimators in the ensemble to retain, if an int the absolute number of estimators to retain.
 min_score : float, optional, default: 0.66
Threshold for pruning estimators based on scoring metric. After fit, only estimators with a score above min_score are retained.
 min_correlation : float, optional, default: 0.6
Threshold for Pearson’s correlation coefficient that determines when predictions of two estimators are significantly correlated.
 cv : int, a cv generator instance, or None, optional
The input specifying which cv generator to use. It can be an integer, in which case it is the number of folds in a KFold, None, in which case 3 fold is used, or another object, that will then be used as a cv generator. The generator has to ensure that each sample is only used once for testing.
 n_jobs : int, optional, default: 1
Number of jobs to run in parallel.
 verbose : integer
Controls the verbosity: the higher, the more messages.
