Why are categories in the Simulator of AutoML shown in NB Simulator but not in SVM Simulator. In the original dataset the columns defined as categories are shown as categories in the NB Simulator (see attachments)
Thanks

    Hi,
    SVM cant work on nominal columns, so AutoModel converts them into numericals using dummy encoding. Thats why don't appear as dropdowns, but as 0-1 variables.
