Hi,

I'm interested in comparing the Transformation node vs. the Interactive Binning Node.

What is the difference between setting the interval-inputs setting to "optimal binning" for a variable vs. using the interactive binning node?

Let's say I'm using the Transformation node and I've selected the interval-inputs to "optimal", and based on chi-squared a couple of my variables have been selected for binning transformation. Is there a benefit to tagging on the Interactive Binning Node downstream to assess optimal binning once transformation is assessed?

I'm assuming it's still of use as some of my variables transformed via log or non-binning transformation could still be considered downstream for binning once normality is addressed... so binning is only redundant if a variable was binned via transformation and then re-binned with the binnning node?

I'd appreciate clarification of any misunderstanding I may have.
