Dear RapidMiner programmers,
referring to post http://rapid-i.com/rapidforum/index.php/topic,8048.0.html
I was not able to manage to transform the actual matrix content of e.g. mutual information operator to weights.
As a partly work-around it is possible to write the matrix content via report to a file but still it seems impossible to apply this content as weight.
I would urgently appreciate a weight output which works as described in the following text:
Matrix att1 att2 att3
att1 1 5 4
att2 6 1 5
att3 1 0 1
If this is the given matrix I wish to simply select an attribute e.g. "att3" and get the mutual information in this column as weights for each attribute, i.e. 4 as weight for att1 ... 1 as weight for att3.
PS: I could also imagine that an example to weights operator would come handy in general.
