scikit-survival

scikit-survival is a Python module for survival analysis built on top of scikit-learn. It allows doing survival analysis while utilizing the power of scikit-learn, e.g., for pre-processing or doing cross-validation.

About Survival Analysis

The objective in survival analysis (also referred to as time-to-event or reliability analysis) is to establish a connection between covariates and the time of an event. What makes survival analysis differ from traditional machine learning is the fact that parts of the training data can only be partially observed – they are censored.

For instance, in a clinical study, patients are often monitored for a particular time period, and events occurring in this particular period are recorded. If a patient experiences an event, the exact time of the event can be recorded – the patient’s record is uncensored. In contrast, right censored records refer to patients that remained event-free during the study period and it is unknown whether an event has or has not occurred after the study ended. Consequently, survival analysis demands for models that take this unique characteristic of such a dataset into account.

Requirements

  • Python 3.5 or later
  • cvxpy
  • cvxopt
  • joblib
  • numexpr
  • numpy 1.12 or later
  • osqp
  • pandas 0.21 or later
  • scikit-learn 0.22 or 0.23

Installation

The easiest way to install scikit-survival is to use Anaconda by running:

conda install -c sebp scikit-survival

Alternatively, you can install scikit-survival from source following this guide.

Examples

The user guide provides in-depth information on the key concepts of scikit-survival, an overview of available survival models, and hands-on examples in the form of Jupyter notebooks.
