The art of feature engineering

Many compare feature engineering to an art and, as a result, almost no feature generation techniques, tools, or processes have been developed to streamline it. This art is more like an impossible task. The world of potential datasets, new features, and feature optimization is so vast that data scientists can’t fully explore the range of possibilities, which means losing out on potentially huge improvements to predictive models.

This art is hard to perfect manually, let alone achieve feature engineering automation that gets results, right?

Not when you have a powerful feature generation tool to infuse your art with science and ML-driven augmentation to generate newly discovered features, and improve your feature engineering pipeline.

Advanced feature generation with Explorium:
Discover the unknown data drivers of your business

Feature Engineering with Explorium includes innovative auto feature generation to explore multiple data sources and the complex relationships between them. Once your dataset is enriched with the data from Explorium’s gallery of external data sources, our external data management platform automatically generates a myriad of candidate variables across a wide range of datasets, testing and ranking to offer you the most impactful features for maximum predictive power.

Now, using auto feature engineering, you can easily generate thousands of new features and immediately distill the top performers to drive ROI and impact your business. The platform uses various automated feature generation techniques, including:

Feature Engineering for Text Classification and NLP

The platform is able to extract insights and build features from plain text, which includes understanding the subject of the text, text summarization, sentiment analysis, and more.

Feature Engineering for Time Series

Our automated feature engineering for time series data analyzes on a sliding window and extracts features such as seasonality (weekday vs. weekend), trend change points, and holiday impact.

Geospatial Feature Engineering

Longitude and latitude coordinates and their relation to other data points can uncover a clear story. Our geospatial feature generation takes into account the curvature of the Earth for far more accurate predictions as well as other effects including population density, local property attributes, and footfall data.

Feature Engineering for Clustering

Our engine can efficiently run algorithms such as DBSCAN, K-Means, and other unsupervised machine learning techniques to engineer high-level features from the raw clustering data.

Breaking Down the Benefits of Automated Feature Engineering

Get creative with your own code

Feature discovery with Explorium is completely extensible. You have the freedom to write your own code (what we call “Creatives”) on top of our rich data gallery and through our feature discovery and generation engine. This way you can integrate your domain knowledge to the mix so no good ideas remain unexamined.

Think outside of the box

Searching for the right data to generate features from is hard, which is why most data scientists often only look at attributes of the data they have. Explorium lets you think outside the proverbial box by cutting out the entire data acquisition and integration process so you can generate features you never thought would impact your model from data you don’t have internally.

Predictable returns

There is always a tradeoff between the time it takes to integrate and test a new data source versus the potential improvement its features will offer to your model’s accuracy. The time investment and unpredictable returns are no longer a deterrent when you’re able to see the impact of new features in minutes rather than months.

Make a measurable impact

With infinite possibilities out there, the sheer task of finding new data to improve your model usually becomes a nonstarter. We don’t have to tell you (but we will anyway): you’re missing out on huge potential. Stop expecting tweaks to your algorithm to give you the improvement you need to show real business value. Instead, allow Explorium to be your secret weapon to improve your models and drive a competitive advantage for your business.
