pylift is an uplift library that provides, primarily:
- Fast uplift modeling implementations.
- Evaluation tools (
While other packages and more exact methods exist to model uplift, pylift is designed to be quick, flexible, and effective. pylift heavily leverages the optimizations of other packages -- namely,
scipy. The primary method currently implemented is the Transformed Outcome proxy method (Athey 2015).
This branch is a fork from github.com/wayfair/pylift, and is actively being maintained.
The latest version of pylift can be installed through pypi:
pip install pylift
