Tools for performing hyperparameter search with Scikit-Learn and Dask.


  • Drop-in replacement for Scikit-Learn's GridSearchCV and RandomizedSearchCV.
  • Hyperparameter optimization can be done in parallel using threads, processes, or distributed across a cluster.
  • Works well with Dask collections. Dask arrays, dataframes, and delayed can be passed to fit.
  • Candidate estimators with identical parameters and inputs will only be fit once. For composite-estimators such as Pipeline this can be significantly more efficient as it can avoid expensive repeated computations.

For more information, check out the documentation.


Dask-searchcv is available via conda or pip:

# Install with conda
$ conda install dask-searchcv -c conda-forge

# Install with pip
$ pip install dask-searchcv
