I hope it is not a trivial question.
I have data for a machine learning experiment from 2012 to 2018. In 2012, the samples are far different from the ones of 2018. Each sample is a little distribution and I think that the descriptive stats (like the mean, std, kurtosis and skewness) of each sample can be interesting to predict the target.
My concern is that I need to "normalize" the data, because, otherwise, the descriptive stats of a sample of 2012 would be very different of the ones of 2018, resulting in confusing data for the ML model. The issue is to be able to compare the stats between samples, not at the end of them.
¿Is somewhat impossible what I'm asking for?
