mltools: Machine Learning Tools

A collection of machine learning helper functions, particularly assisting in the Exploratory Data Analysis phase. Makes heavy use of the 'data.table' package for optimal speed and memory efficiency. Highlights include a versatile bin_data() function, sparsify() for converting a data.table to sparse matrix format with one-hot encoding, fast evaluation metrics, and empirical_cdf() for calculating empirical Multivariate Cumulative Distribution Functions.
