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 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 nine of the ten chunks and evaluate the updated model on the tenth chunk. You could repeat this process ten times using each chunk until each data chunk has been used to evaluate–and train–the updated model.
