Import and Prepare Data

This example uses the SMS Text Spam classification dataset explored in the Naive Bayes notes. The following imports the data, changes the label to a binary integer, splits in to training and testing data, and transforms the data into sparse matrics of ones and zeroes.

df = pd.read_table('classification-model-evaluation/SMSSpamCollection.txt',
                   names=['label', 'sms_message'])
df['label'] ={'ham':0, 'spam':1})

X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(df['sms_message'], 

count_vector = CountVectorizer()
training_data = count_vector.fit_transform(X_train)
testing_data = count_vector.transform(X_test)

print("Training, Testing Data shape = " + \
      str(training_data.shape) + ', ' + \
Training, Testing Data shape = (4179, 7456), (1393, 7456)

Instantiate Models

naive_bayes = MultinomialNB()
bag_mod = BaggingClassifier(n_estimators=200)
rf_mod = RandomForestClassifier(n_estimators=200)
ada_mod = AdaBoostClassifier(n_estimators=300, learning_rate=0.2)
svm_mod = SVC()

Train Models, y_train), y_train), y_train), y_train), y_train);

Make Predictions

naive_bayes_preds = naive_bayes.predict(testing_data)
bag_mod_preds = bag_mod.predict(testing_data)
rf_mod_preds = rf_mod.predict(testing_data)
ada_mod_preds = ada_mod.predict(testing_data)
svm_mod_preds = svm_mod.predict(testing_data);

Calculate Metrics

for label, preds in [('Naive Bayes',   naive_bayes_preds),
                     ('Bagging',       bag_mod_preds),
                     ('Random Forest', rf_mod_preds),
                     ('AdaBoost',      ada_mod_preds),
                     ('SVM',           svm_mod_preds)]:
    accuracy = accuracy_score(y_test, preds)
    precision = precision_score(y_test, preds)
    recall = recall_score(y_test, preds)
    f1 = f1_score(y_test, preds)

    print('\n--- {} ---'.format(label))
    print(' Accuracy score: {:2.1f}%'.format(accuracy*100.))
    print('Precision score: {:2.1f}%'.format(precision*100.))
    print('   Recall score: {:2.1f}%'.format(recall*100.))
    print('       F1 score: {:2.1f}%'.format(f1*100.))
--- Naive Bayes ---
 Accuracy score: 98.9%
Precision score: 97.2%
   Recall score: 94.1%
       F1 score: 95.6%

--- Bagging ---
 Accuracy score: 97.5%
Precision score: 91.7%
   Recall score: 89.2%
       F1 score: 90.4%

--- Random Forest ---
 Accuracy score: 98.1%
Precision score: 100.0%
   Recall score: 85.4%
       F1 score: 92.1%

--- AdaBoost ---
 Accuracy score: 97.7%
Precision score: 96.9%
   Recall score: 85.4%
       F1 score: 90.8%

--- SVM ---
 Accuracy score: 98.5%
Precision score: 99.4%
   Recall score: 89.2%
       F1 score: 94.0%

The conclusion of the metrics above is that Naive Bayes is the best model for all metrics except for precision, where the Random Forest outperformed. Note that despite this outperformance, it has the worst overall recall score.
