Creation#

[source]

create_feature_view#

FeatureStore.create_feature_view(
    name, query, version=None, description="", labels=[], transformation_functions={}
)

Create a feature view metadata object and saved it to hopsworks.

Example

# connect to the Feature Store
fs = ...

# get the feature group instances
fg1 = fs.get_or_create_feature_group(...)
fg2 = fs.get_or_create_feature_group(...)

# construct the query
query = fg1.select_all().join(fg2.select_all())

# get the transformation functions
standard_scaler = fs.get_transformation_function(name='standard_scaler')

# construct dictionary of "feature - transformation function" pairs
transformation_functions = {col_name: standard_scaler for col_name in df.columns}

feature_view = fs.create_feature_view(

)

Example

# get feature store instance
fs = ...

# define query object
query = ...

# define dictionary with column names and transformation functions pairs
mapping_transformers = ...

# create feature view
feature_view = fs.create_feature_view(
    name='feature_view_name',
    version=1,
    transformation_functions=mapping_transformers,

Returns:

FeatureView: The feature view metadata object.

  • statistics_config Optional[Union[hsfs.StatisticsConfig, bool, dict]]: A configuration object, or a dictionary with keys "enabled" to generally enable descriptive statistics computation for this feature group, "correlations" to turn on feature correlation computation and "histograms" to compute feature value frequencies. The values should be booleans indicating the setting. To fully turn off statistics computation pass statistics_config=False. Defaults to None and will compute only descriptive statistics.
  • read_options Optional[Dict[Any, Any]]: Additional read options as key-value pairs, defaults to {}. When using the python engine, read_options can contain the following entries:

Returns

training_data#

FeatureView.training_data(
    start_time=None,
    end_time=None,
    description="",
    extra_filter=None,
    statistics_config=None,
    read_options=None,
)

Create the metadata for a training dataset and get the corresponding training data from the offline feature store. This returns the training data in memory and does not materialise data in storage. The training data can be recreated by calling feature_view.get_training_data with the metadata created.

Create random splits

# get feature store instance
fs = ...

# get feature view instance
feature_view = fs.get_feature_view(...)

# get training data
features_df, labels_df  = feature_view.training_data(
    description='Descriprion of a dataset',
)

Create time-series based splits

# get feature store instance
fs = ...

# get feature view instance
feature_view = fs.get_feature_view(...)

# set up a date
start_time = "2022-05-01 00:00:00"
end_time = "2022-06-04 23:59:59"
# you can also pass dates as datetime objects

# get training data
features_df, labels_df = feature_view.training_data(
    start_time=start_time,
    end_time=end_time,
    description='Description of a dataset'
)

Arguments

  • start_time Optional[Union[str, int, datetime.datetime, datetime.date]]: Start event time for the training dataset query, inclusive. Strings should be formatted in one of the following formats %Y-%m-%d, %Y-%m-%d %H, %Y-%m-%d %H:%M, %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S, or %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%f. Int, i.e Unix Epoch should be in seconds.
  • end_time Optional[Union[str, int, datetime.datetime, datetime.date]]: End event time for the training dataset query, exclusive. Strings should be formatted in one of the following formats %Y-%m-%d, %Y-%m-%d %H, %Y-%m-%d %H:%M, %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S, or %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%f. Int, i.e Unix Epoch should be in seconds.
