You need to properly benchmark your models and it can be easy to forget to do this step. That is why we wanted to demonstrate the dummy module of scikit-learn. It is an underappreciated part of the library that is very useful to start with.
A dummy classifier works just like any other scikit-learn estimator.
from sklearn.dummy import DummyClassifier mod = DummyClassifier(strategy="most_frequent") mod.fit(X, y)
