minCount: Feature Selection Count Mode

Description

Count mode of feature selection used in the feature selection transform selectFeatures.

Usage

  minCount(count = 1, ...)

Arguments

count

The threshold for count based feature selection. A feature is selected if and only if at least count examples have non-default value in the feature. The default value is 1.

...

Additional arguments to be passed directly to the Microsoft Compute Engine.

Details

When using the count mode in feature selection transform, a feature is selected if the number of examples have at least the specified count examples of non-default values in the feature. The count mode feature selection transform is very useful when applied together with a categorical hash transform (see also, categoricalHash. The count feature selection can remove those features generated by hash transform that have no data in the examples.

Value

A character string defining the count mode.
