  • MLJAR AutoML adds integration with Optuna

    March 15, 2021 by Piotr Płoński Automl Optuna

    MLJAR integration with Optuna The MLJAR provides an open-source Automated Machine Learning framework for creating Machine Learning pipelines. It has a built-in heuristic algorithm for hyperparameters tuning based on: random search over a defined set of hyperparameters values, and hill-climbing over best solutions to search for further improvements. This solution works very well on Machine Learning tasks under a selected time budget. However, there might be situations when the model performance is the primary goal and the time needed for computation is not the limit. Thus, we propose the new mode: “Optuna” in the MLJAR framework. In this mode, we utilize the Optuna hyperparameters tuning framework. It is availbale in the mljar-supervised package starting from version 0.10.0.

  • Lead Scoring

    March 05, 2021 by Aleksandra Płońska Lead scoring

    If you’re selling, promoting, and engaging customers to buy new services, you’ve certainly come across the concept of lead scoring. This term is a source of interest for marketing agencies that, engaging possible information about the client, look for those who will be interested in a specific product or service.

  • How does AutoML work?

    March 04, 2021 by Piotr Płoński Automl

    The AutoML stands for Automated Machine Learning. It builds a Machine Learning pipeline in an automated way. But how exactly it works? What is behind the scene? There are many proprietary AutoML systems, and we probably never get to know how they work. Luckily, the MLJAR AutoML is open-source. Its code is available at GitHub. In this article, we will look inside MLJAR AutoML to show how it works.

  • AutoML in the Notebook

    March 04, 2021 by Piotr Płoński Automl Notebook

    Python Notebooks provide interactive computing environment that is perfect for experimenting with data. The Notebooks are widely used by Data Scientists in data analysis and discovery tasks. Currently, there are many versions of Notebooks. The first, and the most used version is Jupyter Notebook. There are also many cloud-based Notebooks, like Kaggle Notebooks or CoCalc Notebooks.

  • Extract Rules from Decision Tree in 3 Ways with Scikit-Learn and Python

    February 25, 2021 by Piotr Płoński Decision tree Scikit learn

    The rules extraction from the Decision Tree can help with better understanding how samples propagate through the tree during the prediction. It can be needed if we want to implement a Decision Tree without Scikit-learn or different than Python language. Decision Trees are easy to move to any programming language because there are set of if-else statements. I’ve seen many examples of moving scikit-learn Decision Trees into C, C++, Java, or even SQL.

  • Tensorflow vs Scikit-learn

    October 01, 2020 by Piotr Płoński Tensorflow Scikitlearn Neuralnetwork

    Have you ever wonder what is the difference between Tensorflow and Sckit-learn? Which one is better? Have you ever needed Tensorflow when you already use Scikit-learn?

  • AutoML as easy as MLJar

    September 12, 2020 by Jeff King Automl Supervised

    If there has been an open-source library that has made me an avid machine learning practitioner and won the battle of the AutoMLs hands down it has to be MlJar. I simply can’t stop eulogizing this library because it has helped overcome my deficiency in the field of coding and programming but at the same time automating the predictive modeling flow with very little user involvement. I have taken it for a spin in a few Hackathons and am not overtly surprised to find it amongst the top performers. It saves a lot of time as you do not need Data Preprocessing and feature Engineering before feeding the dataset to the model.

  • Xgboost Feature Importance Computed in 3 Ways with Python

    August 17, 2020 by Piotr Płoński Xgboost

    Xgboost Feature Importance Xgboost is a gradient boosting library. It provides parallel boosting trees algorithm that can solve Machine Learning tasks. It is available in many languages, like: C++, Java, Python, R, Julia, Scala. In this post, I will show you how to get feature importance from Xgboost model in Python. In this example, I will use boston dataset availabe in scikit-learn pacakge (a regression task).

  • How many trees in the Random Forest?

    June 30, 2020 by Piotr Płoński Random forest

    I have trained 3,600 Random Forest Classifiers (each with 1,000 trees) on 72 data sets (from OpenML-CC18 benchmark) to check how many trees should be used in the Random Forest. What I’ve found:
