[docs]class OneHotEncoder(BaseEncoder): """ Creates a one-hot encoding (OHE) for categorical data. One-hot encoding represents categorical information as a vector where each individual dimension corresponds to a category. A category has a 1:1 mapping between dimension indicated by a "1" in that position. For example, imagine 3 categories, :math:`A`, :math:`B`, and :math:`C`; these can be represented as follows: .. math:: A &= [1, 0, 0] \\ B &= [0, 1, 0] \\ C &= [0, 0, 1] The OHE encoder operates in 2 modes: (1) "use_unknown=True": Makes an :math:`N+1` length vector for :math:`N` categories, the first index always corresponds to the unknown category. (2) "use_unknown=False": Makes an :math:`N` length vector for :math:`N` categories, where an empty vector of 0s indicates an unknown/missing category. An encoder can represent a feature column or target column; in this case it represents a target, `is_target` is `True`, and `target_weights`. The `target_weights` parameter enables users to specify how heavily each class should be weighted within a mixer - useful in imbalanced classes. By default, the `StatisticalAnalysis` phase will provide `target_weights` as the relative fraction of each class in the data which is important for imbalanced populations; for example, suppose there is a 80/05/15 imbalanced representation across 3 different classes - `target_weights` will be a vector as such:: target_weights = {"class1": 0.8, "class2": 0.05, "class3": 0.15} Users should note that models will be presented with the inverse of the target weights, `inv_target_weights`, which will perform the 1/target_value_per_class operation. **This means large values will result in small weights for the model**.
