mlr3 - A new framework for machine learning with R

Tuesday, 26. January 2021 - 12:00

Abstract: I'll give a short introduction to the 'mlr3' package (<https://mlr3.mlr-org.com>) for modern, state-of-the-art machine learning in R. The mlr3 ecosystem provides a one-stop solution for all machine learning (ML) needs, spanning preprocessing, model learning and evaluation, ensembles, visualization, and hyperparameter tuning. Its pipeline system 'mlr3pipelines' allows to easily express complex workflows, and to quickly prototype new ideas and applications. Whether you are applying ML to solve a practical prediction problem, implementing learning algorithms as a research software engineer or researching ML by empirical means, 'mlr3' can help make your workflow more readable and efficient.
