... scikit metrics.

If you're going to use optimise a model in scikit-learn then it better optimise towards the right thing. This means that you have to understand metrics in scikit-learn. This series of videos will give an overview in how they work, how you can create your own and how the gridsearch interacts with it.


Here's the code to write your own scorer directly.

from sklearn.model_selection import GridSearchCV
from sklearn.metrics import precision_score, recall_score, make_scorer

def min_recall_precision(est, X, y_true, sample_weight=None):
    y_pred = est.predict(X)
    recall = recall_score(y_true, y_pred)
    precision = precision_score(y_true, y_pred)
    return min(recall, precision)

grid = GridSearchCV(
    param_grid={'class_weight': [{0: 1, 1: v} for v in np.linspace(1, 20, 30)]},
    scoring={'precision': make_scorer(precision_score), 
            'recall': make_scorer(recall_score),
            'min_both': min_recall_precision},
grid.fit(X, y);
