snowflake.ml.modeling.preprocessing.MaxAbsScaler

class snowflake.ml.modeling.preprocessing.MaxAbsScaler(*, input_cols: Optional[Union[str, Iterable[str]]] = None, output_cols: Optional[Union[str, Iterable[str]]] = None, passthrough_cols: Optional[Union[str, Iterable[str]]] = None, drop_input_cols: Optional[bool] = False)

Bases: BaseTransformer

Scale each feature by its maximum absolute value.

This transformer scales and translates each feature individually such that the maximal absolute value of each feature in the training set will be 1.0. It does not shift/center the data, and thus does not destroy any sparsity.

Values must be of float type. Each feature is scaled and transformed individually such that the maximal absolute value of each feature in the dataset is 1.0. This scaler does not shift or center the data, preserving sparsity.

For more details on what this transformer does, see sklearn.preprocessing.MaxAbsScaler.

Parameters:
  • input_cols – Optional[Union[str, List[str]]], default=None The name(s) of one or more columns in the input DataFrame containing feature(s) to be scaled. Input columns must be specified before fit with this argument or after initialization with the set_input_cols method. This argument is optional for API consistency.

  • output_cols – Optional[Union[str, List[str]]], default=None The name(s) to assign output columns in the output DataFrame. The number of columns specified must equal the number of input columns. Output columns must be specified before transform with this argument or after initialization with the set_output_cols method. This argument is optional for API consistency.

  • passthrough_cols – Optional[Union[str, List[str]]], default=None A string or a list of strings indicating column names to be excluded from any operations (such as train, transform, or inference). These specified column(s) will remain untouched throughout the process. This option is helpful in scenarios requiring automatic input_cols inference, but need to avoid using specific columns, like index columns, during training or inference.

  • drop_input_cols – Optional[bool], default=False Remove input columns from output if set True. False by default.

scale_

Dict[str, float] dict {column_name: value} or None. Per-feature relative scaling factor.

max_abs_

Dict[str, float] dict {column_name: value} or None. Per-feature maximum absolute value.

Scale each feature by its maximum absolute value.

This transformer scales and translates each feature individually such that the maximal absolute value of each feature in the training set will be 1.0. It does not shift/center the data, and thus does not destroy any sparsity.

Parameters:
  • input_cols – Single or multiple input columns.

  • output_cols – Single or multiple output columns.

  • passthrough_cols – A string or a list of strings indicating column names to be excluded from any operations (such as train, transform, or inference). These specified column(s) will remain untouched throughout the process. This option is helful in scenarios requiring automatic input_cols inference, but need to avoid using specific columns, like index columns, during in training or inference.

  • drop_input_cols – Remove input columns from output if set True. False by default.

scale_

dict {column_name: value} or None Per feature relative scaling of the data.

max_abs_

dict {column_name: value} or None Per feature maximum absolute value.

  • sklearn_initial_keywords – Initial keywords in sklearn.

  • sklearn_unused_keywords – Sklearn keywords that are unused in snowml.

  • snowml_only_keywords – snowml only keywords not present in sklearn.

  • sklearn_added_keyword_to_version_dict – Added keywords mapped to the sklearn versions in which they were added.

  • sklearn_added_kwarg_value_to_version_dict – Added keyword argument values mapped to the sklearn versions in which they were added.

  • sklearn_deprecated_keyword_to_version_dict – Deprecated keywords mapped to the sklearn versions in which they were deprecated.

set_drop_input_cols(drop_input_cols: Optional[bool] = False) None
set_input_cols(input_cols: Optional[Union[str, Iterable[str]]]) Base

Input columns setter.

Parameters:

input_cols – A single input column or multiple input columns.

Returns:

self

set_label_cols(label_cols: Optional[Union[str, Iterable[str]]]) Base

Label column setter.

Parameters:

label_cols – A single label column or multiple label columns if multi task learning.

set_params(**params: Dict[str, Any]) None

Set the parameters of this transformer.

The method works on simple transformers as well as on nested objects. The latter have parameters of the form <component>__<parameter> so that it’s possible to update each component of a nested object.

SnowflakeMLException – Invalid parameter keys.

Sample weight column setter.

Parameters:

sample_weight_col – A single column that represents sample weight.
