Digits Classification Exercise

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, y_digits = datasets.load_digits(return_X_y=True)
X_digits = X_digits / X_digits.max()

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):]

knn = neighbors.KNeighborsClassifier()
logistic = linear_model.LogisticRegression(max_iter=1000)

print('KNN score: %f' % knn.fit(X_train, y_train).score(X_test, y_test))
print('LogisticRegression score: %f'
      % logistic.fit(X_train, y_train).score(X_test, y_test))
