What does the attribute costs after the apply model operator describe?

TycheTyche Member Posts: 6 Newbie

the Apply Model operator adds 4 attributes to my data set.
The confidence for each of my three labels and a cost. What exactly does the cost describe?
I did not input a cost-matrix or something like that or is the matrix that I used to create the model saved in the model?

Thanks in advance.

    May be one of the attributes used to construct the model was called 'cost'? If 'cost' was used as a label of three classes and the model was applied to either a training or validation data partition, then four attributes would be added: prediction(cost), confidence(class1), confidence(class2), and confidence(class3). If this was the case then 'cost' and 'prediction(cost)' are a label and its prediction, so that we could measure the model performance. Sorry if this is not the case and I am off on a tangent here, in which case post your process (and perhaps your data) here and I'll have a look.
