A builder object that provides summary statistics about a given column.
Users should not directly create such builders, but instead use one of the methods in

API for correlation functions in MLlib, compatible with DataFrames and Datasets.
The functions in this package generalize the functions in org.apache.spark.sql.Dataset#stat
to spark.ml's Vector types.
Tools for vectorized statistics on MLlib Vectors.
The methods in this package provide various statistics for Vectors contained inside DataFrames.
This class lets users pick the statistics they would like to extract for a given column. Here is
an example in Scala:
val dataframe = ... // Some dataframe containing a feature column and a weight column
val multiStatsDF = dataframe.select(
Summarizer.metrics("min", "max", "count").summary($"features", $"weight")
val Row(Row(minVec, maxVec, count)) = multiStatsDF.first()
If one wants to get a single metric, shortcuts are also available:
val meanDF = dataframe.select(Summarizer.mean($"features"))
val Row(meanVec) = meanDF.first()
Note: Currently, the performance of this interface is about 2x~3x slower then using the RDD
