Classify observations in ensemble of classification models


label = resubPredict(ens)
[label,score] = resubPredict(ens)
[label,score] = resubPredict(ens,Name,Value)


label = resubPredict(ens) returns the labels ens predicts for the data ens.X. label is the predictions of ens on the data that fitcensemble used to create ens.

[label,score] = resubPredict(ens) also returns scores for all classes.

[label,score] = resubPredict(ens,Name,Value) finds resubstitution predictions with additional options specified by one or more Name,Value pair arguments.

Input Arguments


A classification ensemble created with fitcensemble.

Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.


Indices of weak learners in the ensemble ranging from 1 to NumTrained. oobLoss uses only these learners for calculating loss.

Default: 1:NumTrained

Output Arguments


The response ens predicts for the training data. label is the same data type as the training response data ens.Y, and has the same number of entries as the number of rows in ens.X.


An N-by-K matrix, where N is the number of rows in ens.X, and K is the number of classes in ens. High score value indicates that an observation likely comes from this class.

Train an ensemble of 100 boosted classification trees using AdaBoostM2.

t = templateTree('MaxNumSplits',1); % Weak learner template tree object
ens = fitcensemble(meas,species,'Method','AdaBoostM2','Learners',t);

Find the total number of misclassifications.

Ypredict = resubPredict(ens); % The predictions
Ysame = strcmp(Ypredict,species); % True when Ypredict and species are equal
sum(~Ysame) % Number of different predictions
ans = 5
