Creates Transformer

Parameters
  • entities (dict[str -> tuple(pd.DataFrame, str, str)]) – Dictionary of entities. Entries take the format {entity id -> (dataframe, id column, (time_column))}.

  • relationships (list[(str, str, str, str)]) – List of relationships between entities. List items are a tuple with the format (parent entity id, parent variable, child entity id, child variable).

  • entityset (EntitySet) – An already initialized entityset. Required if entities and relationships are not defined.

  • target_entity (str) – Entity id of entity on which to make predictions.

  • agg_primitives (list[str or AggregationPrimitive], optional) –

    List of Aggregation Feature types to apply.

    Default: [“sum”, “std”, “max”, “skew”, “min”, “mean”,

    ”count”, “percent_true”, “num_unique”, “mode”]

  • trans_primitives (list[str or TransformPrimitive], optional) –

    List of Transform Feature functions to apply.

    Default: [“day”, “year”, “month”, “weekday”, “haversine”,

    ”num_words”, “num_characters”]

  • allowed_paths (list[list[str]]) – Allowed entity paths on which to make features.

  • max_depth (int) – Maximum allowed depth of features.

  • ignore_entities (list[str], optional) – List of entities to blacklist when creating features.

  • ignore_variables (dict[str -> list[str]], optional) – List of specific variables within each entity to blacklist when creating features.

  • seed_features (list[FeatureBase]) – List of manually defined features to use.

  • drop_contains (list[str], optional) – Drop features that contains these strings in name.

  • drop_exact (list[str], optional) – Drop features that exactly match these strings in name.

  • where_primitives (list[str or PrimitiveBase], optional) –

    List of Primitives names (or types) to apply with where clauses.

    Default:

    [“count”]

  • max_features (int, optional) – Cap the number of generated features to this number. If -1, no limit.
