as_matrix(vectorizables, length=None, return_template=False, verbose=False)¶
Create a matrix from a list/generator of
Vectorizableobjects. All the objects in the list must be the same size when vectorized.
Consider using a generator if the matrix you are creating is large and passing the length of the generator explicitly.
vectorizables (list or generator if
Vectorizableobjects) – A list or generator of objects that supports the vectorizable interface
length (int, optional) – Length of the vectorizable list. Useful if you are passing a generator with a known length.
verbose (bool, optional) – If
True, will print the progress of building the matrix.
return_template (bool, optional) – If
True, will return the first element of the list/generator, which was used as the template. Useful if you need to map back from the matrix to a list of vectorizable objects.
M ((length, n_features) ndarray) – Every row is an element of the list.
Vectorizable, optional) – If
return_template == True, will return the template used to build the matrix M.
