This month, platform updates focus on usability and flexibility, relating to the dataset preparation moment of your AI creation journey. These are the latest changes made to the Peltarion Platform:
Dataset view: Redesign and feature preparation improvements
The Dataset view has been redesigned!
Feature settings are now available on the Inspector panel to the right of your workspace and are shown upon selecting a specific feature. This way, all configurations are always available for you in the same location, making it easier to find and adjust what’s needed. This change also allows for more working space in the dataset area, showing more data examples.
Furthermore, in the feature settings, you can edit the proposed feature label and set the appropriate way of encoding the feature before feeding it into the neural network, or leave it without making any adjustments. The platform provides suitable encoding options based on the data types of your features.
Missing the one-hot encoded option under Dataset features?
This is now called Categorical and can be used for both text and numbers. When choosing Categorical as encoding, the feature will be automatically translated into numeric features across all the classes that are found in the dataset, this is needed to transform categories into suitable format for neural networks. For numeric features (including images and float tensors), standardization and min-max encoding options are available, to make sure numeric values are scaled into meaningful ranges that improve your neural network training and make it more accurate and faster.
