The model performance was tested in the validation cohort using area under the curve (AUC).
Integration testing (sometimes called Integration and Testing, abbreviated "I&T") is the phase in software testing in which individual software modules are combined and tested as a group.
It occurs after unit testing and before validation testing.
In software engineering, coupling or dependency is the degree to which each program module relies on each one of the other modules. Low coupling often correlates with high cohesion, and vice versa.
The software quality metrics of coupling and cohesion were invented by Larry Constantine, an original developer of Structured Design who was also an early proponent of these concepts.
Genetic algorithms belong to the larger class of evolutionary algorithms (EA), which generate solutions to optimization problems using techniques inspired by natural evolution, such as inheritance, mutation, selection, and crossover.
