The Estimator interface is implemented by all learners in Rubix ML. It provides basic inference functionality through the predict() method which returns a set of predictions from a dataset. Additionally, it provides methods for returning estimator type and data type compatibility declarations.

Make Predictions#

Return the predictions from a dataset containing unknown samples in an array:

public predict(Dataset $dataset) : array

$predictions = $estimator->predict($dataset);

    [0] => married
    [1] => divorced
    [2] => divorced
    [3] => married


The return value of predict() is an array containing the predictions in the same order that they were indexed in the dataset.
