  • Manos Parzakonis thinks this is interesting:

Don’t forget that you can treat some of the data preparation steps as hyperparameters. For example, the grid search will automatically find out whether or not to add a feature you were not sure about (e.g., using the add_bedrooms_per_room hyperparameter of your CombinedAttributesAdder transformer). It may similarly be used to automatically find the best way to handle outliers, missing features, feature selection, and more.
