parsnip: A tidy model interface - Max Kuhn
parsnip is a new tidymodels package that generalizes model interfaces across packages. The idea is to have a single function interface for types of specific models (e.g. logistic regression) that lets the user choose the computational engine for training. For example, logistic regression could be fit with several R packages, Spark, Stan, and Tensorflow. parsnip also standardizes the return objects and sets up some new features for some upcoming packages.
