Modeling numerical data

Tasks such as normalizing, binning, or redistributing numerical variables are an important part of data preparation for machine learning. The modules in this group support the following data preparation tasks:

  • Grouping data into bins of varying sizes or distributions.
  • Removing outliers or changing their values.
  • Normalizing a set of numeric values into a specific range.
  • Creating a compact set of feature columns from a high-dimension dataset.
