Subject Re: How VectorIndexer works in Spark ML pipelines
Date Sun, 18 Oct 2015 19:54:36 GMT
Vishnu,

VectorIndexer
<http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/ml-features.html#vectorindexer> will
add metadata regarding which features are categorical and what are
continuous depending on the threshold, if there are more different unique
values than the *MaxCategories *parameter, they will be treated as
continuous. That will help the learning algorithms as they will be treated
differently.
>From the data I can see you have more than one Vector in the features
column? Try using some Vectors with only two different values.

Regards.
