PREDICTION_PROBABILITY

Syntax

mining_attribute_clause::=

Purpose

This function is for use with classification models created by the DBMS_DATA_MINING package or with the Oracle Data Mining Java API. It is not valid with other types of models. It returns the probability for a given prediction as an Oracle NUMBER.

If you specify the optional class parameter, then the function returns the probability for the specified class. This is equivalent to the probability associated with choosing the given target class value.

If you omit the class parameter, then the function returns the probability associated with the best prediction. You can use this form in conjunction with the PREDICTION function to obtain the best pair of prediction value and probability.

The mining_attribute_clause behaves as described for the PREDICTION function. Refer to mining_attribute_clause.

Example

The following example returns the 10 customers living in Italy who are most likely to use an affinity card.

This example, and the prerequisite data mining operations, including the creation of the view, can be found in the demo files $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/demo/dmdtdemo.sql. General information on data mining demo files is available in Oracle Data Mining Administrator's Guide. The example is presented here to illustrate the syntactic use of the function.

SELECT cust_id FROM (
   SELECT cust_id
   FROM mining_data_apply_v
   WHERE country_name = 'Italy'
   ORDER BY PREDICTION_PROBABILITY(DT_SH_Clas_sample, 1 USING *)
      DESC, cust_id)
   WHERE rownum < 11;
