I have a feature which has following entries:-
| Exterior | | -------- | | Vinyl | | Wd Sdng | | MetalSd | | Wd Sdng | | HdBoard | | BrkFace | | Wd Sdng |
and so on.
I am assuming that
Wd Sdng is a text value and other values are string (but please correct me if I am wrong).
How do I encode this feature since it has both text and string values?
Should I perform a OneHotEncoding or should I perform some kind of NLP encoding (Tfidf etc)??
