Impute features by a constant value.

Format

R6Class object inheriting from PipeOpImpute/PipeOp.

Construction

PipeOpImputeConstant$new(id = "imputeconstant", param_vals = list())
  • id :: character(1)
    Identifier of resulting object, default "imputeconstant".

  • param_vals :: named list
    List of hyperparameter settings, overwriting the hyperparameter settings that would otherwise be set during construction. Default list().

Input and Output Channels

Input and output channels are inherited from PipeOpImpute.

The output is the input Task with all affected features missing values imputed by the value of the constant parameter.

State

The $state is a named list with the $state elements inherited from PipeOpImpute.

The $state$model contains the value of the constant parameter that is used for imputation.

Parameters

The parameters are the parameters inherited from PipeOpImpute, as well as:

  • constant :: atomic(1)
    The constant value that should be used for the imputation, atomic vector of length 1. The atomic mode must match the type of the features that will be selected by the affect_columns parameter and this will be checked during imputation. Initialized to ".MISSING".

  • check_levels :: logical(1)
    Should be checked whether the constant value is a valid level of factorial features (i.e., it already is a level)? Raises an error if unsuccesful. This check is only performed for factorial features (i.e., factor, ordered; skipped for character). Initialized to TRUE.

Internals

Adds an explicit new level to factor and ordered features, but not to character features, if check_levels is FALSE and the level is not already present.

Methods

Only methods inherited from PipeOpImpute/PipeOp.
