Trains a recoding model from a data table

A recoding model consists in the discretization of numerical variables and the grouping of categorical variables.

If the target_variable is specified these partitions are constructed in supervised mode, meaning that each resulting discretizations/groupings best separates the target variable while maintaining a simple interval/group model of the data. Different recoding methods can be specified via the numerical_recoding_method, categorical_recoding_method and pairs_recoding_method options.

The output files of this process contain a dictionary file (.kdic) that can be used to recode databases with the deploy_model function.

Parameters:
dictionary_file_path_or_domainstr or DictionaryDomain

Path of a Khiops dictionary file or a DictionaryDomain object.

dictionary_namestr

Name of the dictionary to be recoded.

data_table_pathstr

Path of the data table file.

target_variablestr

Name of the target variable. If equal to “” it trains an unsupervised recoder.

results_dirstr

Path of the results directory.

detect_formatbool, default True

If True detects automatically whether the data table file has a header and its field separator. It’s ignored if header_line or field_separator are set.

header_linebool, optional (default True if detect_format is False)

If True it uses the first line of the data as column names. Overrides detect_format if set.

field_separatorstr, optional (default “\t” if detect_format is False)

A field separator character, overrides detect_format if set (”” counts as “\t”).

sample_percentagefloat, default 100.0

See sampling_mode option below.

sampling_mode“Include sample” or “Exclude sample”

If equal to “Include sample” it trains the recoder on sample_percentage percent of the data. If equal to “Exclude sample” it trains the recoder on the complement of the data selected with “Include sample”. See also Database Sampling.

selection_variablestr, default “”

It trains with only the records such that the value of selection_variable is equal to selection_value. Ignored if equal to “”.

selection_value: str or int or float, default “”

See selection_variable option above. Ignored if equal to “”.

additional_data_tablesdict, optional
