vtreat: A Statistically Sound 'data.frame' Processor/Conditioner

Mount, John; Zumel, Nina

A 'data.frame' processor/conditioner that prepares real-world data for predictive modeling in a statistically sound manner. 'vtreat' prepares variables so that data has fewer exceptional cases, making it easier to safely use models in production. Common problems 'vtreat' defends against: 'Inf', 'NA', too many categorical levels, rare categorical levels, and new categorical levels (levels seen during application, but not during training). 'vtreat::prepare' should be used as you would use 'model.matrix'.
