How can I effectively access specific parts of a Pipeline in Scikit-learn using slicing notation? I’ve heard that this technique allows you to extract a subset of the data, but I’m not quite sure how to implement it. Could you provide an example illustrating how to use slicing notation to access different steps within a Pipeline?

Slicing notation in Pipelines is a handy technique for accessing specific parts of the sequence. I am providing an example code for your understanding.

In the provided example, we define a Pipeline with two steps: the first step scales the data using `StandardScaler`

, and the second step fits a linear regression model using `LinearRegression.`

To access the first step in the Pipeline, you can use slicing notation with a stop value of 1 (`[:1]`

). This returns a new Pipeline with only the first step.

To access the second step in the Pipeline, you can use slicing notation with a start value of 1 and a stop value of 2 (`[1:2]`

). This returns a new Pipeline with only the second step.

Hope, it will help.
