Feature Transformation -- HashingTF (Transformer)

Maps a sequence of terms to their term frequencies using the hashing trick.

ft_hashing_tf(x, input_col = NULL, output_col = NULL, binary = FALSE,
  num_features = 2^18, uid = random_string("hashing_tf_"), ...)



A spark_connection, ml_pipeline, or a tbl_spark.


The name of the input column.


The name of the output column.


Binary toggle to control term frequency counts. If true, all non-zero counts are set to 1. This is useful for discrete probabilistic models that model binary events rather than integer counts. (default = FALSE)


Number of features. Should be greater than 0. (default = 2^18)


A character string used to uniquely identify the feature transformer.


Optional arguments; currently unused.


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
