Problem with Naive-Bayes [SOLVED]

edited November 2018 in Help

I am using the operator "Naive Bayes"  and shows me the following error:

"the learning scheme Naive Bayes does not have sufficient capabilities for handling an example set with only one label.
There are existing special modeling operators if only examples for one class are know. They support the "one class label" capability"

Anyone can explain me better referred to the error?

    Hi Jose,

    Naive Bayes is trained on training data which must contain examples for each class. So if you want to create a Naive Bayes model to separate positive and negative examples, your training data must contain both examples with positive and negative label. If your data contains for example only positive examples, you get the error that you quoted.

    Hi Marius,

    What do you mean by that data must be labeled positive or negative?

    I have a text file (txt) with the positive feedback training in a folder. And in another folder I have the negative comments.
    Both files with positive and negative comments ... Should they be in the same folder?

    Having the different classes in separate folders is fine, maybe there is a configuration error in your process. Please post the xml of the process you are using, so that we can check it.

    Hm, that looks fine. Is it possible that you have a type in one of the input paths, such that the example set contains only positives or only negatives? You can check that e.g. by setting a breakpoint after process documents and checking the values of the label attribute.
    Problems could also occur if your data contains only *very* few examples for one or both of the classes.

    Thanks Marius.

      the amount of data was small. I increased the amount of data and it worked perfectly.
    Thanks for your help.
