scikit-learn

scikit-learn is a Python module for machine learning built on top of SciPy and is 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 About us page for a list of core contributors.

It is currently maintained by a team of volunteers.

Installation

Dependencies

scikit-learn requires:

  • Python (>= 3.5)
  • NumPy (>= 1.11.0)
  • SciPy (>= 0.17.0)
  • joblib (>= 0.11)

Scikit-learn 0.20 was the last version to support Python 2.7 and Python 3.4. scikit-learn 0.21 and later require Python 3.5 or newer.

Scikit-learn plotting capabilities (i.e., functions start with plot_ and classes end with "Display") require Matplotlib (>= 1.5.1). For running the examples Matplotlib >= 1.5.1 is required. A few examples require scikit-image >= 0.12.3, a few examples require pandas >= 0.18.0.

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

Contributing

To learn more about making a contribution to scikit-learn, please see our Contributing guide.

Testing

After installation, you can launch the test suite from outside the source directory (you will need to have pytest >= 3.3.0 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.
