Application: Intelligent generation of code for imputation of missing data in a machine learning dataset (Patent ID: US20240069874A1)

The patent filed by FMR LLC describes methods and apparatuses for intelligent imputation of missing data in a machine learning dataset. The system involves analyzing the dataset to generate characteristics of the missing values, selecting an imputation algorithm based on these characteristics, determining a computing environment for executing the algorithm, generating code for the imputation process, and integrating the code into a machine learning platform to assign replacement values to the missing data. The method also includes receiving datasets from remote devices, analyzing missing value distributions, and selecting appropriate imputation algorithms based on the dataset's characteristics.

The system further involves determining the computing environment based on the dataset size, generating code based on user-specified output file formats, and integrating the code into a machine learning platform for seamless execution. The patent outlines a detailed process for analyzing missing data, selecting suitable imputation algorithms, and executing the imputation process efficiently in different computing environments. Additionally, the system allows for the handling of various types of missing data scenarios, such as numeric or categorical features, classification or regression problems, and time series data. Overall, the patent provides a comprehensive framework for intelligent imputation of missing data in machine learning datasets, enhancing the accuracy and reliability of data analysis and model training processes.
