Examples

import numpy as np
from sklearn.datasets import make_classification
from torch import nn
import torch.nn.functional as F

from skorch import NeuralNetClassifier


X, y = make_classification(1000, 20, n_informative=10, random_state=0)
X = X.astype(np.float32)
y = y.astype(np.int64)

class MyModule(nn.Module):
    def __init__(self, num_units=10, nonlin=F.relu):
        super(MyModule, self).__init__()

        self.dense0 = nn.Linear(20, num_units)
        self.nonlin = nonlin
        self.dropout = nn.Dropout(0.5)
        self.dense1 = nn.Linear(num_units, 10)
        self.output = nn.Linear(10, 2)

    def forward(self, X, **kwargs):
        X = self.nonlin(self.dense0(X))
        X = self.dropout(X)
        X = F.relu(self.dense1(X))
        X = F.softmax(self.output(X), dim=-1)
        return X


net = NeuralNetClassifier(
    MyModule,
    max_epochs=10,
    lr=0.1,
    # Shuffle training data on each epoch
    iterator_train__shuffle=True,
)

net.fit(X, y)
y_proba = net.predict_proba(X)

In an sklearn Pipeline:

from sklearn.pipeline import Pipeline
from sklearn.preprocessing import StandardScaler


pipe = Pipeline([
    ('scale', StandardScaler()),
    ('net', net),
])

pipe.fit(X, y)
y_proba = pipe.predict_proba(X)

With grid search

from sklearn.model_selection import GridSearchCV


params = {
    'lr': [0.01, 0.02],
    'max_epochs': [10, 20],
    'module__num_units': [10, 20],
}
gs = GridSearchCV(net, params, refit=False, cv=3, scoring='accuracy')

gs.fit(X, y)
print(gs.best_score_, gs.best_params_)

skorch also provides many convenient features, among others:

Installation

skorch requires Python 3.5 or higher.

pip installation

To install with pip, run:

pip install -U skorch

We recommend to use a virtual environment for this.

From source

If you would like to use the must recent additions to skorch or help development, you should install skorch from source:

git clone https://github.com/skorch-dev/skorch.git
cd skorch
# install pytorch version for your system (see below)
python setup.py install

Using conda

You need a working conda installation. Get the correct miniconda for your system from here.

You can also install skorch through the conda-forge channel. The instructions for doing so are available here. Note: The conda channel is _not_ managed by the skorch maintainers.

If you do not want to use conda-forge, you may install skorch using:

git clone https://github.com/skorch-dev/skorch.git
cd skorch
conda env create
source activate skorch
# install pytorch version for your system (see below)
python setup.py install

If you want to help developing, run:

git clone https://github.com/skorch-dev/skorch.git
cd skorch
conda env create
source activate skorch
# install pytorch version for your system (see below)
conda install -c conda-forge --file requirements-dev.txt
python setup.py develop

py.test  # unit tests
pylint skorch  # static code checks

Using pip

If you just want to use skorch, use:

git clone https://github.com/skorch-dev/skorch.git
cd skorch
# create and activate a virtual environment
pip install -r requirements.txt
# install pytorch version for your system (see below)
python setup.py install

If you want to help developing, run:

git clone https://github.com/skorch-dev/skorch.git
cd skorch
# create and activate a virtual environment
pip install -r requirements.txt
# install pytorch version for your system (see below)
pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
python setup.py develop

py.test  # unit tests
pylint skorch  # static code checks

PyTorch

PyTorch is not covered by the dependencies, since the PyTorch version you need is dependent on your system. For installation instructions for PyTorch, visit the PyTorch website. The current version of skorch assumes PyTorch >= 1.1.0.

In general, this should work (assuming CUDA 9):

# using conda:
conda install pytorch cudatoolkit=9.0 -c pytorch
# using pip
pip install torch

Communication

You can’t perform that action at this time.
