Bug#879567: ITP: r-cran-cvst -- GNU R fast cross-validation via sequential testing




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : r-cran-cvst
  Version         : 0.2-1
  Upstream Author : Tammo Krueger <tammokrueger@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://cran.r-project.org/package=CVST

  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R fast cross-validation via sequential testing
 This package implements the fast cross-validation via sequential testing
 (CVST) procedure. CVST is an improved cross-validation procedure which
 uses non-parametric testing coupled with sequential analysis to
 determine the best parameter set on linearly increasing subsets of the
 data. By eliminating underperforming candidates quickly and keeping
 promising candidates as long as possible, the method speeds up the
 computation while preserving the capability of a full cross-validation.
 Additionally to the CVST the package contains an implementation of the
 ordinary k-fold cross-validation with a flexible and powerful set of
 helper objects and methods to handle the overall model selection
 process. The implementations of the Cochran's Q test with permutations
 and the sequential testing framework of Wald are generic and can
 therefore also be used in other contexts.


Remark: This package belongs to a pyramid of dependencies to upgrade
r-cran-caret to its latest upstream version.  It will be maintained by
the Debian Science team at
    https://anonscm.debian.org/git/debian-science/packages/r-cran-cvst.git
Any takers for other new dependencies of r-cran-caret would be
really appreciated.  Also other Uploaders who volunteer to keep on
maintaining the packages are really welcome.
