scikit-learn

scikit-learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and distributed under the 3-Clause BSD license.

The project was started in 2007 by David Cournapeau as a Google Summer of Code project, and since then many volunteers have contributed. See the AUTHORS.rst file for a complete list of contributors.

It is currently maintained by a team of volunteers.

Installation

Dependencies

scikit-learn requires:

  • Python (>= 2.7 or >= 3.4)
  • NumPy (>= 1.8.2)
  • SciPy (>= 0.13.3)

Scikit-learn 0.20 is the last version to support Python2.7. Scikit-learn 0.21 and later will require Python 3.5 or newer.

For running the examples Matplotlib >= 1.3.1 is required. A few examples require scikit-image >= 0.9.3 and a few examples require pandas >= 0.13.1.

scikit-learn also uses CBLAS, the C interface to the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms library. scikit-learn comes with a reference implementation, but the system CBLAS will be detected by the build system and used if present. CBLAS exists in many implementations; see Linear algebra libraries for known issues.

User installation

If you already have a working installation of numpy and scipy, the easiest way to install scikit-learn is using pip

pip install -U scikit-learn

or conda:

conda install scikit-learn

The documentation includes more detailed installation instructions.

Changelog

See the changelog for a history of notable changes to scikit-learn.

Development

We welcome new contributors of all experience levels. The scikit-learn community goals are to be helpful, welcoming, and effective. The Development Guide has detailed information about contributing code, documentation, tests, and more. We've included some basic information in this README.

Important links

Source code

You can check the latest sources with the command:

git clone https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn.git

Setting up a development environment

Quick tutorial on how to go about setting up your environment to contribute to scikit-learn: https://github.com/scikit-learn/scikit-learn/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

Testing

After installation, you can launch the test suite from outside the source directory (you will need to have the pytest package installed):

pytest sklearn

See the web page http://scikit-learn.org/dev/developers/advanced_installation.html#testing for more information.

Random number generation can be controlled during testing by setting the SKLEARN_SEED environment variable.
