Digits Classification ExerciseΒΆ

A tutorial exercise regarding the use of classification techniques on the Digits dataset.

This exercise is used in the Classification part of the Supervised learning: predicting an output variable from high-dimensional observations section of the A tutorial on statistical-learning for scientific data processing.


KNN score: 0.961111
LogisticRegression score: 0.933333


from sklearn import datasets, neighbors, linear_model

X_digits = digits.data / digits.data.max()
y_digits = digits.target

n_samples = len(X_digits)

X_train = X_digits[:int(.9 * n_samples)]
y_train = y_digits[:int(.9 * n_samples)]
X_test = X_digits[int(.9 * n_samples):]
y_test = y_digits[int(.9 * n_samples):]
