How to implement logistic regression using Spark with R ?

Description

To implement logistic regression using Spark with R

  • Set up Spark Context and Spark session
  • Load the Data set
  • Split the data into train and test set
  • Fit the logistic regression model
  • Predict using the test set
  • Take the summary of the model
  • Evaluate the metrics

#Set up spark home
Sys.setenv(SPARK_HOME=”…../spark-2.4.0-bin-hadoop2.7″)
.libPaths(c(file.path(Sys.getenv(“SPARK_HOME”), “R”, “lib”), .libPaths()))
#Load the library
library(SparkR)
library(“caret”)
#Initialize the Spark Context
#To run spark in a local node give master=”local”
sc #Start the SparkSQL Context
sqlContext #Load the data set
data = read.df(“file:///…./weight-height.csv”,”csv”,header = “true”, inferSchema = “true”, na.strings = “NA”)
#Split the data into train and test set
splt_data=randomSplit(data,c(8,2),42)
trainingData=splt_data[[1]]
testData=splt_data[[2]]
xtest=select(testData,”Height”,”Weight”)
ytest=select(testData,”Gender”)
#Build the model
gender_model summary(gender_model)
#Predict using the test data
pred=predict(gender_model,xtest)
showDF(pred)
#Convert the spark data frame to R data frame
y_pred=collect(select(pred,”prediction”),stringsAsFactors=FALSE)
y_true=collect(select(ytest,”Gender”),stringsAsFactors=FALSE)
#Calculate the confusion matrix
confusionMatrix(as.factor(y_pred$prediction),as.factor(y_true$Gender))
