Working with sequence data

Sampling, partitioning and balancing data

Improving efficiency

Course Outline

1: Using functions to cleanse and enrich data
• Use date functions
• Use conversion functions
• Use string functions
• Use statistical functions
• Use missing value functions

2: Using additional field transformations
• Replace values with the Filler node
• Recode continuous fields with the Binning node
• Change a field’s distribution with the Transform node
