From Data to Discovery: The Scikit-Learn Advantage.

What is Scikit Learn ?

If you’re dealing with Machine Learning in Python, Scikit Learn is considered as the gold standard.
Scikit-learn is an open source Python library that provides a wide selection of supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms. It implements a range of machine learning tools performing preprocessing, cross-validation and visualization using a unified interface.

Scikit-learn rich set of algorithm offerings includes Regression, Clustering, Decision Trees, Neural Networks, SVMs and Naive Bayes. Corresponding use cases are presented in other sections of this site.

Initial Data load.

Initial input data should be numeric and stored as NumPy arrays, Pandas DataFrame or SciPy sparse matrices.

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd

Training And Test Data.

from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split
X = set [[ 'feature1', 'feature1', 'feature1', #...

y = set ['target']
X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split( X, y, test_size=0.3 , random_state = 103)

Preprocessing The Data - Standardization.

from sklearn.preprocessing import StandardScaler
scaler = StandardScaler().fit(X_train)
standardized_X = scaler.transform(X_train)
standardized_X_test = scaler.transform(X_test)

Preprocessing The Data - Normalization.

from sklearn.preprocessing import Normalizer
scaler = Normalizer().fit(X_train)
normalized_X = scaler.transform(X_train)
normalized_X_test = scaler.transform(X_test)

Preprocessing The Data - Binarization.

from sklearn.preprocessing import Binarizer
binarizer = Binarizer(threshold=0.0).fit(X)
binary_X = binarizer.transform(X)

Preprocessing The Data - Encoding Categorical Features.

from sklearn.preprocessing import LabelEncoder
enc = LabelEncoder()
y = enc.fit_transform(y)

Preprocessing The Data - Imputing Missing Values.

from sklearn.preprocessing import Imputer
imp = Imputer(missing_values=0, strategy='mean', axis=0)

Preprocessing The Data - Generating Polynomial Features.

from sklearn.preprocessing import PolynomialFeatures
poly = PolynomialFeatures(3)

Creating a Model - Supervised Learning.

#Linear Regression
from sklearn.linear_model import LinearRegression
lr = LinearRegression(normalize=True)
#Support Vector Machines (SVM)
from sklearn.svm import SVC
svc = SVC(kernel='linear')
#Naive Bayes
from sklearn.naive_bayes import GaussianNB
gnb = GaussianNB()
from sklearn import neighbors
knn = neighbors.KNeighborsClassifier(n_neighbors=3)

Model Fitting.

#Supervised learning, y), y_train), y_train)
#Unsupervised Learning
pca_model = pca.fit_transform(X_train)


#Supervised Estimators
y_pred = svc.predict(np.random.random((2,5)))
y_pred = lr.predict(X_test)
y_pred = knn.predict_proba(X_test)
#Unsupervised Estimators
y_pred = k_means.predict(X_test)

Evaluating Model’s Performance - Classification Metrics.

#Accuracy Score
knn.score(X_test, y_test)
from sklearn.metrics import accuracy_score
accuracy_score(y_test, y_pred)
#Classification Report
from sklearn.metrics import classification_report
print(classification_report(y_test, y_pred))
#Confusion Matrix
from sklearn.metrics import confusion_matrix
print(confusion_matrix(y_test, y_pred))

Evaluating Model’s Performance - Regression Metrics.

#Mean Absolute Error
from sklearn.metrics import mean_absolute_error
y_true = [3, -0.5, 2]
mean_absolute_error(y_true, y_pred)
#Mean Squared Error
from sklearn.metrics import mean_squared_error
mean_squared_error(y_test, y_pred)
#R² Score
from sklearn.metrics import r2_score
r2_score(y_true, y_pred)

Evaluating Model’s Performance - Clustering Metrics.

#Adjusted Rand Index
from sklearn.metrics import adjusted_rand_score
adjusted_rand_score(y_true, y_pred)
from sklearn.metrics import homogeneity_score
homogeneity_score(y_true, y_pred)
from sklearn.metrics import v_measure_score
metrics.v_measure_score(y_true, y_pred)

Evaluating Model’s Performance - Cross-Validation.

from sklearn.cross_validation import cross_val_score
print(cross_val_score(knn, X_train, y_train, cv=4))
print(cross_val_score(lr, X, y, cv=2))

Model Tuning - Grid Search.

from sklearn.grid_search import GridSearchCV
params = {"n_neighbors": np.arange(1,3),
"metric": ["euclidean", "cityblock"]}
grid = GridSearchCV(estimator=knn,
param_grid=params), y_train)

Model Tuning - Randomized Parameter Optimization.

from sklearn.grid_search import RandomizedSearchCV
params = {"n_neighbors": range(1,5),
"weights": ["uniform", "distance"]}
rsearch = RandomizedSearchCV(estimator=knn,
random_state=5), y_train)
