A Generic Tool For Performance Evaluation of Supervised Learning Algorithms
Generic-CV: A Tool for the Practitioner
Generic-CV is a general purpose Matlab tool for performance evaluation of supervised learning algorithms. The tool is generic in the sense that it easily accommodates new learning algorithms, without any need for programming, and can operate Matlab implementations as well as `executables'. In addition, we provide a distributed version of the Generic-CV tool that can utilize multiple computers and in principle can speed up the enormous running time required for performance evaluation by several orders of magnitude.
General Information Developed with Matlab 7-R.14, and tested under Windows-XP and Linux.
Supports Matlab implementations as well as `executables'
Implements the k-fold cross-validation and hold-out procedures
Supports several hyper-parameter search strategeis
