Scholarcy highlights

  • Under the framework of prediction modeling, splitting the data set into parts that will be used to build the models, as well as their validation, is a crucial step in their development
  • near-infrared spectroscopy data dataset The original NIR spectra of the 256 sugarcane leave samples are shown in figure 2
  • For the analysis and modeling of NIR spectroscopy data, we should apply some pretreatments on the data matrix as a way to remove or minimize the sources of spectral variability and to improve selectively
  • It was observed that the values from the KS partition method were, in general, better than those obtained from Random Sampling within all repetitions
  • When using the SNPs data set, we verified that there is a significant difference between the root of the mean squared error means obtained by the two methods, at the level of 1% significance, which indicates the superiority of the KS approach aiming to split the data set with the purpose of prediction
  • Set in training and testing subsamples allow for predicting models that are statistically different
  • The KS method may be a good alternative to commonly used partition methods for SNP data
