k-fold cross validation

Applicable to SnapLogic Data Science Snaps, k-fold cross validation is a statistical method used to estimate the performance of machine learning algorithms. The dataset is separated into k equal-sized chunks and the model is trained on k-1 chunks and evaluated on the last chunk. This process is repeated k-times so that every data point has a chance to be in the test chunk once. For example, you could break the dataset into 10 chunks and train the model on 9 of the 10 chunks and evaluate the updated model on the tenth chunk. You could repeat this process 10 times using each chunk until each data chunk has been used to evaluate–and train–the updated model.
