Feature Tranformation -- StandardScaler (Estimator)

Standardizes features by removing the mean and scaling to unit variance using column summary statistics on the samples in the training set. The "unit std" is computed using the corrected sample standard deviation, which is computed as the square root of the unbiased sample variance.

Usage
ft_standard_scaler(x, input_col, output_col, with_mean = FALSE,
  with_std = TRUE, dataset = NULL,
  uid = random_string("standard_scaler_"), ...)
Arguments
x

A spark_connection, ml_pipeline, or a tbl_spark.

input_col

The name of the input column.

output_col

The name of the output column.

with_mean

Whether to center the data with mean before scaling. It will build a dense output, so take care when applying to sparse input. Default: FALSE

with_std

Whether to scale the data to unit standard deviation. Default: TRUE

dataset

(Optional) A tbl_spark. If provided, eagerly fit the (estimator) feature "transformer" against dataset. See details.

uid

A character string used to uniquely identify the feature transformer.

...

Optional arguments; currently unused.

Details

When dataset is provided for an estimator transformer, the function internally calls ml_fit() against dataset. Hence, the methods for spark_connection and ml_pipeline will then return a ml_transformer and a ml_pipeline with a ml_transformer appended, respectively. When x is a tbl_spark, the estimator will be fit against dataset before transforming x.

When dataset is not specified, the constructor returns a ml_estimator, and, in the case where x is a tbl_spark, the estimator fits against x then to obtain a transformer, which is then immediately used to transform x.

Value

The object returned depends on the class of x.

  • spark_connection: When x is a spark_connection, the function returns a ml_transformer, a ml_estimator, or one of their subclasses. The object contains a pointer to a Spark Transformer or Estimator object and can be used to compose Pipeline objects.

  • ml_pipeline: When x is a ml_pipeline, the function returns a ml_pipeline with the transformer or estimator appended to the pipeline.

  • tbl_spark: When x is a tbl_spark, a transformer is constructed then immediately applied to the input tbl_spark, returning a tbl_spark
