A unified interface is provided to various machine learning algorithms like linear or quadratic discriminant analysis, k-nearest neighbor, learning vector quantization, random forest, support vector machine, … It allows to train, test, and apply cross-validation using similar functions and function arguments with a minimalist and clean, formula-based interface. Missing data are processed the same way as base and stats R functions for all algorithms, both in training and testing. Confusion matrices are also provided with a rich set of metrics calculated and a few specific plots.
