Feature: Support for Automated Feature Engineering (FeatureTools)

Having Automated Feature engineering would be great.



Currently having to stitch multiple python functions to one large on to use FeatureTools. it would be nice to see if adding a built-in functionality so that when you add data sources you can build the feature tool relationships and 'EntitySets', or define them within one custom function, or a UI that presents them to you.

Hi,

We recently released a plugin for automated feature engineering. You can download and install it from our plugin store: https://www.dataiku.com/dss/plugins/info/events-aggregator.html

We also published a technical article to explain our approach: https://medium.com/data-from-the-trenches/automatic-feature-engineering-an-event-driven-approach-b2ca09d166f

Hope it helps,

Alex

Understood, and this only works with an SQL dataset/Database connection as well, correct?

Yes, SQL databases or Hadoop datasets through Hive.

It seems does not work with Snowflake, correct?
