People & tasks

  • Nelle Varoquaux - Isotonic regression
  • Olivier Grisel (working with Gaël Varoquaux on joblib parallelism)
  • Alexandre Gramfort
  • Fabian Pedregosa (Things I could work on: Implement ranking algorithms (RankSVM, IntervalRank), help with the isotonic regression and group lasso pull request)

  • Nicolas Le Roux (providing machine learning expertise for RBM and DBN coding)

Location

La Villette, Paris, the 13th & 14th of September, from 10:00 until 18:00. The sprint will take place in the 'Carrefour Numerique', floor -1 of the 'cité des sciences': http://www.pycon.fr/2012/venue/

Tasks

Top priorities are merging: pull requests, fixing easyfix issues and improving documentation consistency.

In addition to the tasks listed below, it is useful to consider any issue in this list : https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/issues

Easy

  • Improve test coverage: Run 'make test-coverage' after installing the coverage module, find low hanging fruits to improve coverage, and add tests. Try to test the logic, and not simple aim for augmenting the number of lines covered.
  • Finish estimator summary PR: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/pull/804

Branch merging

Improving and merging existing pull requests is the number one priority: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/pulls

There is a lot of very good code lying there, it often just needs a small amount of polishing

Not requiring expertise in machine learning

  • Affinity propagation using sparse matrices: the affinity propagation algorithm (scikits.learn.cluster.affinity_propagation_) should be able to work on sparse input affinity matrices without converting them to dense. A good implementation should make this efficient on very large data.

Machine learning tasks

  • Improve the documentation: You understand some aspects machine-learning. You can help making the scikit rock without writing a line of code: http://scikit-learn.org/dev/developers/index.html#documentation. See also Documentation-related issues in the issue tracker.
  • Text feature extraction (refactoring / API simplification) + hashing vectorizer: Olivier Grisel
  • Nearest Neighbors Classification/Regression : allowing more flexible Bayesian priors (currently only a flat prior is used); implementing alternative distance metrics: Jake Vanderplas
  • Group Lasso: Continue with pull request https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/pull/947. Participants: @fabianp

K-means improvements

Participants: @mblondel

  • Code clean up
  • Speed improvements: don't reallocate clusters, track clusters that didn't change, triangular inequality
  • L1 distance: use L1 distance in e step and median (instead of mean) in m step
  • Fuzzy K-means: k-means with fuzzy cluster membership (not the same as GMM)
  • Move argmin and average operators to pairwise module (for L1/L2)
  • Support chunk size argument in argmin operator
  • Merge @ogrisel's branch
  • Add a score function (opposite of the kmeans objective)
  • Sparse matrices
  • fit_transform
  • more output options in transform (hard, soft, dense)

Semisupervised learning

Participants: @larsmans

  • EM algorithm for Naive Bayes (there is a pull request linguering)
  • Fix utility code to handle partially labeled data sets

More ambitious/long term tasks

  • Patch liblinear to have warm restart + LogisticRegressionCV.
    Comment (by Fabian): I tried this, take a look here: liblinear fork
  • Locality Sensitive Hashing, talk to Brian Holt
  • Fused Lasso
  • Group Lasso, talk to Alex Gramfort (by email), or Fabian Pedregosa
  • Manifold learning: improve MDS (talk to Nelle Varoquaux), t-SNE (talk to DWF)
  • Sparse matrix support in dictionary learning module

Euroscipy - Bruxelles, Mon Aug 27 - Tue Aug 28, 2012

People & tasks

Contributors might find useful the coding guidelines .

Tasks

Top priorities are merging: pull requests, fixing easyfix issues and improving documentation consistency.

In addition to the tasks listed below, it is useful to consider any issue in this list : https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/issues

  • Merge in Randomized linear models (branch 'randomized_lasso' on GaelVaroquaux's github (Gael Varoquaux and Alex Gramfort working on this)

Easy

  • Improve test coverage: Run 'make test-coverage' after installing the coverage module, find low hanging fruits to improve coverage, and add tests. Try to test the logic, and not simple aim for augmenting the number of lines covered.
  • Py3k support: First test joblib on Python3, then scikit-learn. Both generate sources that are python3 compatible, but these have not been tested.

Branch merging

Improving and merging existing pull requests is the number one priority: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/pulls

There is a lot of very good code lying there, it often just needs a small amount of polishing

Not requiring expertise in machine learning

  • Rationalize images in documentation: we have 56Mo of images generated in the documentation (doc/_build/html/_images). First we should save jpg instead of pngs: it shrinks this directory to 45Mo (not a huge gain, granted). Second there is many times the same file saved. I need to understand what is going on, and fix that.
  • Affinity propagation using sparse matrices: the affinity propagation algorithm (scikits.learn.cluster.affinity_propagation_) should be able to work on sparse input affinity matrices without converting them to dense. A good implementation should make this efficient on very large data.

Machine learning tasks

  • Improve the documentation: You understand some aspects machine-learning. You can help making the scikit rock without writing a line of code: http://scikit-learn.org/dev/developers/index.html#documentation. See also Documentation-related issues in the issue tracker.

  • Make Pipeline object work for real
  • FastICA

Anything you can think of, such as:

  • Spectral Clustering + manifold learning (MDS/PCA, Isomap, Diffusion maps, tSNE)
  • Canonical Correlation Analysis
  • Kernel PCA
  • Gaussian Process regression

0.4 Coding Sprint, 16 & 17 June 2010

Place:

channel #scikit-learn, on irc.freenode.org. If you do not have an IRC client or behind a firewall, check out http://webchat.freenode.net/

Some ideas:

  • adapt the plotting features from the em module into gmm module.
  • incorporate more datasets : the diabetes from the lars R package, featured datasets from http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets.html , etc.
  • anything from the issue tracker.
  • extend the tutorial with features selection, cross-validation, etc
  • profile and improve the performance of the gmm module.
  • submit some new classifier
  • refactor the ann module (artificial neural networks) to conform to the API in the rest of the modules, or submit a new ann module.
  • make it compatible with python3 (shouldn't be hard now that there's a numpy python3 relase)
  • design a sphinx template for the main web page [here http://www.flickr.com/photos/fseoane/4573612893/] is a temptative design, but was not translated into a sphinx template.
  • anything you can think of.

Documentation Week, 14-18 March 2010

Place:

channel #learn, on irc.freenode.org. If you do not have an IRC client or behind a firewall, check out http://webchat.freenode.net/

Possible Tasks:

  • Document our design choices (methods in each class, convention for estimated parameters, etc.). Most of this is in ApiDiscussion.
  • Documentation for neural networks (nonexistent)
  • Examples. We currently only have a few of them. Expand and integrate them into the web page.
  • Write a Tutorial.
  • Write a FAQ.
  • Documentation and Examples for Support Vector Machines. What's in the web is totally outdated. Integrate the documentation from gumpy, see ticket:27 (assigned: Fabian Pedregosa)
  • Review documentation.
  • Customize the sphinx generated html.
  • Create some cool images/logos for the web page.
  • Create some benchmark plots.

Code sprint in Paris, 3 March 2010

Terminated, see http://fseoane.net/blog/2010/scikitslearn-coding-spring-in-paris/

Participants

  • Alexandre Gramfort
  • Olivier Grisel
  • Vincent Michel
  • Fabian Pedregosa
  • Bertrand Thirion
  • Gaël Varoquaux

Goals

Implement a few targeted functionalities for penalized regressions.

Target functionalities

  1. GLMnet
  2. Bayesian Regression (Ridge, ARD)
  3. Univariate feature selection function

Edouard: Most of things we need are already in datamind, the main main issue is to cut the dependance with FFF(nipy)

Extras, if time permits:

  1. LARS

Proposed workflow

Pair programming:

  1. GLMNet (AG, OG)
  2. Bayesian regression (FP, VM)
  3. Feature selection (BT, GV)
  4. LARS: Whoever is finished first.

Place in the repository

  1. I think GLMNet goes well in scikits.learn.glm.

Edouard: The GLM term is confusing: Indeed in GLMNet the G means "generalized", however in neuroimaging people understand "general" which is in fact a linear model

  1. Bayessian regression: scikits.learn.bayes . It's short and explicit.

Edouard: Again the term Bayes might not lead to a clear organization of algorithms.

Past sprints

Paris coding Sprint, 8-9 Sept. 2010

Place:

INRIA research center in Saclay-Ile de France, also in channel #scikit-learn, on irc.freenode.org. Room to be determined.

Some ideas:

  • extend the tutorial with features selection, cross-validation, etc
  • design a sphinx template for the main web page [here http://www.flickr.com/photos/fseoane/4573612893/] is a temptative design, but was not translated into a sphinx template.
  • Group lasso with coordinate descent in GLM module
  • Covariance estimators (Ledoit-Wolf) -> Regularized LDA
  • Add transform in LDA
  • PCA with fit + transform
  • preprocessing routines (center, standardize) with fit transform
  • K-means with Pybrain heuristic
  • Make Pipeline object work for real
  • FastICA

Anything you can think of, such as:

  • Spectral Clustering + manifold learning (MDS/PCA, Isomap, Diffusion maps, tSNE)
  • Canonical Correlation Analysis
  • Kernel PCA
  • Gaussian Process regression

  1. Feature selection: featsel? selection ? I'm not sure about this one.

AG : maybe univ?

Edouard: Maybe it is to early to decide the structure of the repository during your coding sprint. I think this organization should follow discussion we had we Fabian, Gael and Bertand. Next I tried to synthesize those discussions, however its just a proposition and many things are missing:

If there's code that we want to share and it does not fit into any of these schemes, it's ok to put it into sandbox/ (it does not yet exist)
