  • As of v0.6, neuropredict now supports regression applications i.e. predicting continuous targets (in addition to categorical classes), as well as allow you to regress out covariates / confounds within the nested-CV (following all the best practices). Utilizing this feature requires the input datasets be specified in the pyradigm data structures: code @, docs @ Check the changelog below for more details.

Older news

  • neuropredict can handle missing data now (that are encoded with numpy.NaN). This is done respecting the cross-validation splits without any data leakage.

Long term goals

neuropredict, the tool, is part of a broader initiative described below to develop easy, comprehensive and standardized predictive analysis:

Change Log - version 0.6

  • Major feature: Ability to predict continuous variables (regression)
  • Major feature: Ability to handle confounds (regress them out, augmenting etc)
  • Redesigned the internal structure for easier extensibility
  • New CVResults class for easier management of a wealth of outputs generated in the Classification and Regression workflows
  • API access is refreshed and easier

Change Log - version 0.5.2

  • Imputation of missing values
  • Additional classifiers such as XGBoost, Decision Trees
  • Better internal code structure
  • Lot more tests
  • More precise tests, as we vary number of classes wildly in test suites
  • several bug fixes and enhancements
  • More cmd line options such as --print_options from a previous run
