Module Configuration

Output Data Type Configuration

cuml.common.memory_utils.set_global_output_type(output_type)[source]

Method to set cuML’s single GPU estimators global output type. It will be used by all estimators unless overriden in their initialization with their own output_type parameter. Can also be overriden by the context manager method using_output_type().

Parameters
output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’} (default = ‘input’)

Desired output type of results and attributes of the estimators.

  • 'input' will mean that the parameters and methods will mirror the format of the data sent to the estimators/methods as much as possible. Specifically:

    Input type

    Output type

    cuDF DataFrame or Series

    cuDF DataFrame or Series

    NumPy arrays

    NumPy arrays

    Pandas DataFrame or Series

    NumPy arrays

    Numba device arrays

    Numba device arrays

    CuPy arrays

    CuPy arrays

    Other __cuda_array_interface__ objs

    CuPy arrays

  • 'cudf' will return cuDF Series for single dimensional results and DataFrames for the rest.

  • 'cupy' will return CuPy arrays.

  • 'numpy' will return NumPy arrays.

Notes

'cupy' and 'numba' options (as well as 'input' when using Numba and CuPy ndarrays for input) have the least overhead. cuDF add memory consumption and processing time needed to build the Series and DataFrames. 'numpy' has the biggest overhead due to the need to transfer data to CPU memory.

Examples

import cuml
import cupy as cp

ary = [[1.0, 4.0, 4.0], [2.0, 2.0, 2.0], [5.0, 1.0, 1.0]]
ary = cp.asarray(ary)

cuml.set_global_output_type('cudf'):
dbscan_float = cuml.DBSCAN(eps=1.0, min_samples=1)
dbscan_float.fit(ary)

print("cuML output type")
print(dbscan_float.labels_)
print(type(dbscan_float.labels_))

Output:

cuML output type
0    0
1    1
2    2
dtype: int32
<class 'cudf.core.series.Series'>
cuml.common.memory_utils.using_output_type(output_type)[source]

Verbosity Levels

cuML follows a verbosity model similar to Scikit-learn’s: The verbose parameter can be a boolean, or a numeric value, and higher numeric values mean more verbosity. The exact values can be set directly, or through the cuml.common.logger module, and they are:

Verbosity Levels

Numeric value

cuml.common.logger value

Verbosity level

0

cuml.common.logger.level_off

Disables all log messages

1

cuml.common.logger.level_critical

Enables only critical messages

2

cuml.common.logger.level_error

Enables all messages up to and including errors.

3

cuml.common.logger.level_warn

Enables all messages up to and including warnings.

4 or False

cuml.common.logger.level_info

Enables all messages up to and including information messages.

5 or True

cuml.common.logger.level_debug

Enables all messages up to and including debug messages.

6

cuml.common.logger.level_trace

Enables all messages up to and including trace messages.

Preprocessing, Metrics, and Utilities

Model Selection and Data Splitting

Feature and Label Encoding (Single-GPU)

class cuml.preprocessing.LabelEncoder.LabelEncoder(*, handle_unknown='error', handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None)[source]

An nvcategory based implementation of ordinal label encoding

Parameters
handle_unknown{‘error’, ‘ignore’}, default=’error’

Whether to raise an error or ignore if an unknown categorical feature is present during transform (default is to raise). When this parameter is set to ‘ignore’ and an unknown category is encountered during transform or inverse transform, the resulting encoding will be null.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Examples

Converting a categorical implementation to a numerical one

from cudf import DataFrame, Series

data = DataFrame({'category': ['a', 'b', 'c', 'd']})

# There are two functionally equivalent ways to do this
le = LabelEncoder()
le.fit(data.category)  # le = le.fit(data.category) also works
encoded = le.transform(data.category)

print(encoded)

# This method is preferred
le = LabelEncoder()
encoded = le.fit_transform(data.category)

print(encoded)

# We can assign this to a new column
data = data.assign(encoded=encoded)
print(data.head())

# We can also encode more data
test_data = Series(['c', 'a'])
encoded = le.transform(test_data)
print(encoded)

# After train, ordinal label can be inverse_transform() back to
# string labels
ord_label = cudf.Series([0, 0, 1, 2, 1])
ord_label = dask_cudf.from_cudf(data, npartitions=2)
str_label = le.inverse_transform(ord_label)
print(str_label)

class cuml.preprocessing.OneHotEncoder(*, categories='auto', drop=None, sparse=True, dtype=<class 'float'>, handle_unknown='error', handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None)[source]

Encode categorical features as a one-hot numeric array. The input to this estimator should be a cuDF.DataFrame or a cupy.ndarray, denoting the unique values taken on by categorical (discrete) features. The features are encoded using a one-hot (aka ‘one-of-K’ or ‘dummy’) encoding scheme. This creates a binary column for each category and returns a sparse matrix or dense array (depending on the sparse parameter). By default, the encoder derives the categories based on the unique values in each feature. Alternatively, you can also specify the categories manually.

Note

a one-hot encoding of y labels should use a LabelBinarizer instead.

Parameters
categories‘auto’ an cupy.ndarray or a cudf.DataFrame, default=’auto’

Categories (unique values) per feature:

  • ‘auto’ : Determine categories automatically from the training data.

  • DataFrame/ndarray : categories[col] holds the categories expected in the feature col.

drop‘first’, None, a dict or a list, default=None

Specifies a methodology to use to drop one of the categories per feature. This is useful in situations where perfectly collinear features cause problems, such as when feeding the resulting data into a neural network or an unregularized regression.

  • None : retain all features (the default).

  • ‘first’ : drop the first category in each feature. If only one category is present, the feature will be dropped entirely.

  • dict/list : drop[col] is the category in feature col that should be dropped.

sparsebool, default=True

This feature is not fully supported by cupy yet, causing incorrect values when computing one hot encodings. See https://github.com/cupy/cupy/issues/3223

dtypenumber type, default=np.float

Desired datatype of transform’s output.

handle_unknown{‘error’, ‘ignore’}, default=’error’

Whether to raise an error or ignore if an unknown categorical feature is present during transform (default is to raise). When this parameter is set to ‘ignore’ and an unknown category is encountered during transform, the resulting one-hot encoded columns for this feature will be all zeros. In the inverse transform, an unknown category will be denoted as None.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Attributes
drop_idx_array of shape (n_features,)

drop_idx_[i] is the index in categories_[i] of the category to be dropped for each feature. None if all the transformed features will be retained.

class cuml.preprocessing.TargetEncoder.TargetEncoder(n_folds=4, smooth=0, seed=42, split_method='interleaved', output_type='auto')[source]

A cudf based implementation of target encoding [1], which converts one or mulitple categorical variables, ‘Xs’, with the average of corresponding values of the target variable, ‘Y’. The input data is grouped by the columns Xs and the aggregated mean value of Y of each group is calculated to replace each value of Xs. Several optimizations are applied to prevent label leakage and parallelize the execution.

Parameters
n_foldsint (default=4)

Default number of folds for fitting training data. To prevent label leakage in fit, we split data into n_folds and encode one fold using the target variables of the remaining folds.

smoothint or float (default=0)

Count of samples to smooth the encoding. 0 means no smoothing.

seedint (default=42)

Random seed

split_method{‘random’, ‘continuous’, ‘interleaved’},

default=’interleaved’ Method to split train data into n_folds. ‘random’: random split. ‘continuous’: consecutive samples are grouped into one folds. ‘interleaved’: samples are assign to each fold in a round robin way.

output_type: {‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘auto’}, default = ‘auto’

The data type of output. If ‘auto’, it matches input data.

Encode categorical features as a one-hot numeric array. The input to this transformer should be a dask_cuDF.DataFrame or cupy dask.Array, denoting the values taken on by categorical features. The features are encoded using a one-hot (aka ‘one-of-K’ or ‘dummy’) encoding scheme. This creates a binary column for each category and returns a sparse matrix or dense array (depending on the sparse parameter). By default, the encoder derives the categories based on the unique values in each feature. Alternatively, you can also specify the categories manually.

Parameters
categories‘auto’, cupy.ndarray or cudf.DataFrame, default=’auto’

Categories (unique values) per feature. All categories are expected to fit on one GPU.

  • ‘auto’ : Determine categories automatically from the training data.

  • DataFrame/ndarray : categories[col] holds the categories expected in the feature col.

drop‘first’, None or a dict, default=None

Specifies a methodology to use to drop one of the categories per feature. This is useful in situations where perfectly collinear features cause problems, such as when feeding the resulting data into a neural network or an unregularized regression.

  • None : retain all features (the default).

  • ‘first’ : drop the first category in each feature. If only one category is present, the feature will be dropped entirely.

  • Dict : drop[col] is the category in feature col that should be dropped.

sparsebool, default=False

This feature was deactivated and will give an exception when True. The reason is because sparse matrix are not fully supported by cupy yet, causing incorrect values when computing one hot encodings. See https://github.com/cupy/cupy/issues/3223

dtypenumber type, default=np.float

Desired datatype of transform’s output.

handle_unknown{‘error’, ‘ignore’}, default=’error’

Whether to raise an error or ignore if an unknown categorical feature is present during transform (default is to raise). When this parameter is set to ‘ignore’ and an unknown category is encountered during transform, the resulting one-hot encoded columns for this feature will be all zeros. In the inverse transform, an unknown category will be denoted as None.

Convert a collection of text documents to a matrix of token counts

If you do not provide an a-priori dictionary then the number of features will be equal to the vocabulary size found by analyzing the data.

Parameters
lowercaseboolean, True by default

Convert all characters to lowercase before tokenizing.

preprocessorcallable or None (default)

Override the preprocessing (string transformation) stage while preserving the tokenizing and n-grams generation steps.

stop_wordsstring {‘english’}, list, or None (default)

If ‘english’, a built-in stop word list for English is used. If a list, that list is assumed to contain stop words, all of which will be removed from the input documents. If None, no stop words will be used. max_df can be set to a value to automatically detect and filter stop words based on intra corpus document frequency of terms.

ngram_rangetuple (min_n, max_n), default=(1, 1)

The lower and upper boundary of the range of n-values for different word n-grams or char n-grams to be extracted. All values of n such such that min_n <= n <= max_n will be used. For example an ngram_range of (1, 1) means only unigrams, (1, 2) means unigrams and bigrams, and (2, 2) means only bigrams.

analyzerstring, {‘word’, ‘char’, ‘char_wb’}

Whether the feature should be made of word n-gram or character n-grams. Option ‘char_wb’ creates character n-grams only from text inside word boundaries; n-grams at the edges of words are padded with space.

When building the vocabulary ignore terms that have a document frequency strictly lower than the given threshold. This value is also called cut-off in the literature. If float, the parameter represents a proportion of documents, integer absolute counts. This parameter is ignored if vocabulary is not None.

max_featuresint or None, default=None

class cuml.feature_extraction.text.HashingVectorizer(input=None, encoding=None, decode_error=None, strip_accents=None, lowercase=True, preprocessor=None, tokenizer=None, stop_words=None, token_pattern=None, ngram_range=(1, 1), analyzer='word', n_features=1048576, binary=False, norm='l2', alternate_sign=True, dtype=<class 'numpy.float32'>, delimiter=' ')[source]

Convert a collection of text documents to a matrix of token occurrences

It turns a collection of text documents into a cupyx.scipy.sparse matrix holding token occurrence counts (or binary occurrence information), possibly normalized as token frequencies if norm=’l1’ or projected on the euclidean unit sphere if norm=’l2’.

This text vectorizer implementation uses the hashing trick to find the token string name to feature integer index mapping.

This strategy has several advantages:

  • it is very low memory scalable to large datasets as there is no need to store a vocabulary dictionary in memory which is even more important as GPU’s that are often memory constrained

  • it is fast to pickle and un-pickle as it holds no state besides the constructor parameters

  • it can be used in a streaming (partial fit) or parallel pipeline as there is no state computed during fit.

There are also a couple of cons (vs using a CountVectorizer with an in-memory vocabulary):

  • there is no way to compute the inverse transform (from feature indices to string feature names) which can be a problem when trying to introspect which features are most important to a model.

  • there can be collisions: distinct tokens can be mapped to the same feature index. However in practice this is rarely an issue if n_features is large enough (e.g. 2 ** 18 for text classification problems).

  • no IDF weighting as this would render the transformer stateful.

The hash function employed is the signed 32-bit version of Murmurhash3.

Parameters
lowercasebool, default=True

Convert all characters to lowercase before tokenizing.

preprocessorcallable or None (default)

Override the preprocessing (string transformation) stage while preserving the tokenizing and n-grams generation steps.

stop_wordsstring {‘english’}, list, default=None

If ‘english’, a built-in stop word list for English is used. There are several known issues with ‘english’ and you should consider an alternative. If a list, that list is assumed to contain stop words, all of which will be removed from the resulting tokens. Only applies if analyzer == 'word'.

ngram_rangetuple (min_n, max_n), default=(1, 1)

The lower and upper boundary of the range of n-values for different word n-grams or char n-grams to be extracted. All values of n such such that min_n <= n <= max_n will be used. For example an ngram_range of (1, 1) means only unigrams, (1, 2) means unigrams and bigrams, and (2, 2) means only bigrams.

analyzerstring, {‘word’, ‘char’, ‘char_wb’}

Whether the feature should be made of word n-gram or character n-grams. Option ‘char_wb’ creates character n-grams only from text inside word boundaries; n-grams at the edges of words are padded with space.

n_featuresint, default=(2 ** 20)

The number of features (columns) in the output matrices. Small numbers of features are likely to cause hash collisions, but large numbers will cause larger coefficient dimensions in linear learners.

binarybool, default=False.

If True, all non zero counts are set to 1. This is useful for discrete probabilistic models that model binary events rather than integer counts.

norm{‘l1’, ‘l2’}, default=’l2’

Norm used to normalize term vectors. None for no normalization.

alternate_signbool, default=True

When True, an alternating sign is added to the features as to approximately conserve the inner product in the hashed space even for small n_features. This approach is similar to sparse random projection.

dtypetype, optional

Type of the matrix returned by fit_transform() or transform().

delimiterstr, whitespace by default

String used as a replacement for stop words if stop_words is not None. Typically the delimiting character between words is a good choice.

from cuml.feature_extraction.text import HashingVectorizer
corpus = [
    'This is the first document.',
    'This document is the second document.',
    'And this is the third one.',

cuml.datasets.make_classification(n_samples=100, n_features=20, n_informative=2, n_redundant=2, n_repeated=0, n_classes=2, n_clusters_per_class=2, weights=None, flip_y=0.01, class_sep=1.0, hypercube=True, shift=0.0, scale=1.0, shuffle=True, random_state=None, order='F', dtype='float32', _centroids=None, _informative_covariance=None, _redundant_covariance=None, _repeated_indices=None)[source]

Generate a random n-class classification problem. This initially creates clusters of points normally distributed (std=1) about vertices of an n_informative-dimensional hypercube with sides of length 2*class_sep and assigns an equal number of clusters to each class. It introduces interdependence between these features and adds various types of further noise to the data. Without shuffling, X horizontally stacks features in the following order: the primary n_informative features, followed by n_redundant linear combinations of the informative features, followed by n_repeated duplicates, drawn randomly with replacement from the informative and redundant features. The remaining features are filled with random noise. Thus, without shuffling, all useful features are contained in the columns X[:, :n_informative + n_redundant + n_repeated].

Parameters
n_samplesint, optional (default=100)

The number of samples.

n_featuresint, optional (default=20)

The total number of features. These comprise n_informative informative features, n_redundant redundant features, n_repeated duplicated features and n_features-n_informative-n_redundant-n_repeated useless features drawn at random.

n_informativeint, optional (default=2)

The number of informative features. Each class is composed of a number of gaussian clusters each located around the vertices of a hypercube in a subspace of dimension n_informative. For each cluster, informative features are drawn independently from N(0, 1) and then randomly linearly combined within each cluster in order to add covariance. The clusters are then placed on the vertices of the hypercube.

n_redundantint, optional (default=2)

The number of redundant features. These features are generated as random linear combinations of the informative features.

n_repeatedint, optional (default=0)

The number of duplicated features, drawn randomly from the informative and the redundant features.

n_classesint, optional (default=2)

The number of classes (or labels) of the classification problem.

n_clusters_per_classint, optional (default=2)

The number of clusters per class.

weightsarray-like of shape (n_classes,) or (n_classes - 1,), (default=None)

The proportions of samples assigned to each class. If None, then classes are balanced. Note that if len(weights) == n_classes - 1, then the last class weight is automatically inferred. More than n_samples samples may be returned if the sum of weights exceeds 1.

flip_yfloat, optional (default=0.01)

The fraction of samples whose class is assigned randomly. Larger values introduce noise in the labels and make the classification task harder.

class_sepfloat, optional (default=1.0)

The factor multiplying the hypercube size. Larger values spread out the clusters/classes and make the classification task easier.

hypercubeboolean, optional (default=True)

If True, the clusters are put on the vertices of a hypercube. If False, the clusters are put on the vertices of a random polytope.

shiftfloat, array of shape [n_features] or None, optional (default=0.0)

Shift features by the specified value. If None, then features are shifted by a random value drawn in [-class_sep, class_sep].

scalefloat, array of shape [n_features] or None, optional (default=1.0)

Multiply features by the specified value. If None, then features are scaled by a random value drawn in [1, 100]. Note that scaling happens after shifting.

shuffleboolean, optional (default=True)

Shuffle the samples and the features.

random_stateint, RandomState instance or None (default)

Determines random number generation for dataset creation. Pass an int for reproducible output across multiple function calls. See Glossary.

order: str, optional (default=’F’)

Notes

The algorithm is adapted from Guyon [1] and was designed to generate the “Madelon” dataset. How we optimized for GPUs:

  1. Firstly, we generate X from a standard univariate instead of zeros. This saves memory as we don’t need to generate univariates each time for each feature class (informative, repeated, etc.) while also providing the added speedup of generating a big matrix on GPU

  2. We generate order=F construction. We exploit the fact that X is a generated from a univariate normal, and covariance is introduced with matrix multiplications. Which means, we can generate X as a 1D array and just reshape it to the desired order, which only updates the metadata and eliminates copies

  3. Lastly, we also shuffle by construction. Centroid indices are permuted for each sample, and then we construct the data for each centroid. This shuffle works for both order=C and order=F and eliminates any need for secondary copies

Generate a random n-class classification problem.

This initially creates clusters of points normally distributed (std=1) about vertices of an n_informative-dimensional hypercube with sides of length 2 * class_sep and assigns an equal number of clusters to each class. It introduces interdependence between these features and adds various types of further noise to the data.

Without shuffling, X horizontally stacks features in the following order: the primary n_informative features, followed by n_redundant linear combinations of the informative features, followed by n_repeated duplicates, drawn randomly with replacement from the informative and redundant features. The remaining features are filled with random noise. Thus, without shuffling, all useful features are contained in the columns X[:, :n_informative + n_redundant + n_repeated].

Parameters
n_samplesint, optional (default=100)

The number of samples.

n_featuresint, optional (default=20)

The total number of features. These comprise n_informative informative features, n_redundant redundant features, n_repeated duplicated features and n_features-n_informative-n_redundant-n_repeated useless features drawn at random.

n_informativeint, optional (default=2)

The number of informative features. Each class is composed of a number of gaussian clusters each located around the vertices of a hypercube in a subspace of dimension n_informative. For each cluster, informative features are drawn independently from N(0, 1) and then randomly linearly combined within each cluster in order to add covariance. The clusters are then placed on the vertices of the hypercube.

n_redundantint, optional (default=2)

The number of redundant features. These features are generated as random linear combinations of the informative features.

n_repeatedint, optional (default=0)

The number of duplicated features, drawn randomly from the informative and the redundant features.

n_clusters_per_classint, optional (default=2)

weightsarray-like of shape (n_classes,) or (n_classes - 1,) , (default=None)

The proportions of samples assigned to each class. If None, then classes are balanced. Note that if len(weights) == n_classes - 1, then the last class weight is automatically inferred. More than n_samples samples may be returned if the sum of weights exceeds 1.

flip_yfloat, optional (default=0.01)

The fraction of samples whose class is assigned randomly. Larger values introduce noise in the labels and make the classification task harder.

class_sepfloat, optional (default=1.0)

The factor multiplying the hypercube size. Larger values spread out the clusters/classes and make the classification task easier.

hypercubeboolean, optional (default=True)

If True, the clusters are put on the vertices of a hypercube. If False, the clusters are put on the vertices of a random polytope.

shiftfloat, array of shape [n_features] or None, optional (default=0.0)

Shift features by the specified value. If None, then features are shifted by a random value drawn in [-class_sep, class_sep].

scalefloat, array of shape [n_features] or None, optional (default=1.0)

Multiply features by the specified value. If None, then features are scaled by a random value drawn in [1, 100]. Note that scaling happens after shifting.

shuffleboolean, optional (default=True)

Shuffle the samples and the features.

random_stateint, RandomState instance or None (default)

Determines random number generation for dataset creation. Pass an int for reproducible output across multiple function calls. See Glossary.

order: str, optional (default=’F’)

dtypestr, optional (default=’float32’)

Dtype of the generated samples

n_partsint (default = None)

number of partitions to generate (this can be greater than the number of workers)

Returns

The generated samples.

ydask.array backed by CuPy array of shape [n_samples]

The integer labels for class membership of each sample.

Notes

How we extended the dask MNMG version from the single GPU version:

  1. We generate centroids of shape (n_centroids, n_informative)

  2. We generate an informative covariance of shape (n_centroids, n_informative, n_informative)

  3. We generate a redundant covariance of shape (n_informative, n_redundant)

  4. We generate the indices for the repeated features We pass along the references to the futures of the above arrays with each part to the single GPU cuml.datasets.classification.make_classification so that each part (and worker) has access to the correct values to generate data from the same covariances

from dask.distributed import Client
from dask_cuda import LocalCUDACluster
from cuml.dask.datasets.classification import make_classification

The coefficient of the underlying linear model. It is returned only if coef is True.

Notes

Known Performance Limitations:
  1. When effective_rank is set and use_full_low_rank is True, we cannot generate order F by construction, and an explicit transpose is performed on each part. This may cause memory to spike (other parameters make order F by construction)

  2. When n_targets > 1 and order = 'F' as above, we have to explicity transpose the y array. If coef = True, then we also explicity transpose the ground_truth array

  3. When shuffle = True and order = F, there are memory spikes to shuffle the F order arrays

Note

If out-of-memory errors are encountered in any of the above configurations, try increasing the n_parts parameter.

Array Wrappers (Internal API)

class cuml.common.CumlArray(data=None, owner=None, dtype=None, shape=None, order=None)[source]

Array represents an abstracted array allocation. It can be instantiated by itself, creating an rmm.DeviceBuffer underneath, or can be instantiated by __cuda_array_interface__ or __array_interface__ compliant arrays, in which case it’ll keep a reference to that data underneath. Also can be created from a pointer, specifying the characteristics of the array, in that case the owner of the data referred to by the pointer should be specified explicitly.

cuml.metrics.roc_auc_score(y_true, y_score)[source]

Compute Area Under the Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve (ROC AUC) from prediction scores.

Note

this implementation can only be used with binary classification.

Parameters
y_truearray-like of shape (n_samples,)

True labels. The binary cases expect labels with shape (n_samples,)

y_scorearray-like of shape (n_samples,)

Target scores. In the binary cases, these can be either probability estimates or non-thresholded decision values (as returned by decision_function on some classifiers). The binary case expects a shape (n_samples,), and the scores must be the scores of the class with the greater label.

Returns

cuml.metrics.precision_recall_curve(y_true, probs_pred) Tuple[cuml.common.array.CumlArray, cuml.common.array.CumlArray, cuml.common.array.CumlArray][source]

Compute precision-recall pairs for different probability thresholds

Note

this implementation is restricted to the binary classification task. The precision is the ratio tp / (tp + fp) where tp is the number of true positives and fp the number of false positives. The precision is intuitively the ability of the classifier not to label as positive a sample that is negative.

The recall is the ratio tp / (tp + fn) where tp is the number of true positives and fn the number of false negatives. The recall is intuitively the ability of the classifier to find all the positive samples. The last precision and recall values are 1. and 0. respectively and do not have a corresponding threshold. This ensures that the graph starts on the y axis.

Read more in the scikit-learn’s User Guide.

Parameters
y_truearray, shape = [n_samples]

True binary labels, {0, 1}.

probas_predarray, shape = [n_samples]

Estimated probabilities or decision function.

Returns
precisionarray, shape = [n_thresholds + 1]

recallarray, shape = [n_thresholds + 1]

thresholdsarray, shape = [n_thresholds <= len(np.unique(probas_pred))]

handlecuml.Handle

This metric is independent of the absolute values of the labels: a permutation of the class or cluster label values won’t change the score value in any way.

This metric is not symmetric: switching label_true with label_pred will return the completeness_score which will be different in general.

The labels in labels_pred and labels_true are assumed to be drawn from a contiguous set (Ex: drawn from {2, 3, 4}, but not from {2, 4}). If your set of labels looks like {2, 4}, convert them to something like {0, 1}.

The Mutual Information is a measure of the similarity between two labels of the same data.

This metric is independent of the absolute values of the labels: a permutation of the class or cluster label values won’t change the score value in any way.

This metric is furthermore symmetric: switching label_true with label_pred will return the same score value. This can be useful to measure the agreement of two independent label assignments strategies on the same dataset when the real ground truth is not known.

The labels in labels_pred and labels_true are assumed to be drawn from a contiguous set (Ex: drawn from {2, 3, 4}, but not from {2, 4}). If your set of labels looks like {2, 4}, convert them to something like {0, 1}.

Data generators for cuML benchmarks

The main entry point for consumers is gen_data, which wraps the underlying data generators.

Notes when writing new generators:

Each generator is a function that accepts:
  • n_samples (set to 0 for ‘default’)

  • n_features (set to 0 for ‘default’)

  • random_state

  • (and optional generator-specific parameters)

The function should return a 2-tuple (X, y), where X is a Pandas dataframe and y is a Pandas series. If the generator does not produce labels, it can return (X, None)

A set of helper functions (convert_*) can convert these to alternative formats. Future revisions may support generating cudf dataframes or GPU arrays directly instead.

cuml.benchmark.datagen.gen_data(dataset_name, dataset_format, n_samples=0, n_features=0, random_state=42, test_fraction=0.0, **kwargs)[source]

Returns a tuple of data from the specified generator.

Parameters
dataset_namestr

Dataset to use. Can be a synthetic generator (blobs or regression) or a specified dataset (higgs currently, others coming soon)

dataset_formatstr

Type of data to return. (One of cudf, numpy, pandas, gpuarray)

n_samplesint

Number of samples to include in training set (regardless of test split)

test_fractionfloat

Fraction of the dataset to partition randomly into the test set. If this is 0.0, no test set will be created.

cuml.benchmark.datagen.load_higgs()[source]

Returns the Higgs Boson dataset as an X, y tuple of dataframes.

Regression and Classification

Linear Regression

class cuml.LinearRegression(*, algorithm='eig', fit_intercept=True, normalize=False, handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None)

LinearRegression is a simple machine learning model where the response y is modelled by a linear combination of the predictors in X.

cuML’s LinearRegression expects either a cuDF DataFrame or a NumPy matrix and provides 2 algorithms SVD and Eig to fit a linear model. SVD is more stable, but Eig (default) is much faster.

Parameters
algorithm‘eig’ or ‘svd’ (default = ‘eig’)

Eig uses a eigendecomposition of the covariance matrix, and is much faster. SVD is slower, but guaranteed to be stable.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, LinearRegression tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

normalizeboolean (default = False)

This parameter is ignored when fit_intercept is set to False. If True, the predictors in X will be normalized by dividing by it’s L2 norm. If False, no scaling will be done.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

LinearRegression suffers from multicollinearity (when columns are correlated with each other), and variance explosions from outliers. Consider using Ridge Regression to fix the multicollinearity problem, and consider maybe first DBSCAN to remove the outliers, or statistical analysis to filter possible outliers.

Applications of LinearRegression

LinearRegression is used in regression tasks where one wants to predict say sales or house prices. It is also used in extrapolation or time series tasks, dynamic systems modelling and many other machine learning tasks. This model should be first tried if the machine learning problem is a regression task (predicting a continuous variable).

For additional information, see scikitlearn’s OLS documentation.

For an additional example see the OLS notebook.

get_param_names(self)

fit(self, X, y, convert_dtype=True) u’LinearRegression’[source]

Fit the model with X and y.

Parameters
Xarray-like (device or host) shape = (n_samples, n_features)

yarray-like (device or host) shape = (n_samples, 1)

Dense matrix containing floats or doubles. Acceptable formats: CUDA array interface compliant objects like CuPy, cuDF DataFrame/Series, NumPy ndarray and Pandas DataFrame/Series.

convert_dtypebool, optional (default = True)

When set to True, the train method will, when necessary, convert y to be the same data type as X if they differ. This will increase memory used for the method.

get_param_names(self)[source]

Logistic Regression

class cuml.LogisticRegression(*, penalty='l2', tol=0.0001, C=1.0, fit_intercept=True, class_weight=None, max_iter=1000, linesearch_max_iter=50, verbose=False, l1_ratio=None, solver='qn', handle=None, output_type=None)

LogisticRegression is a linear model that is used to model probability of occurrence of certain events, for example probability of success or fail of an event.

cuML’s LogisticRegression can take array-like objects, either in host as NumPy arrays or in device (as Numba or __cuda_array_interface__ compliant), in addition to cuDF objects. It provides both single-class (using sigmoid loss) and multiple-class (using softmax loss) variants, depending on the input variables

Only one solver option is currently available: Quasi-Newton (QN) algorithms. Even though it is presented as a single option, this solver resolves to two different algorithms underneath:

  • Orthant-Wise Limited Memory Quasi-Newton (OWL-QN) if there is l1 regularization

  • Limited Memory BFGS (L-BFGS) otherwise.

Note that, just like in Scikit-learn, the bias will not be regularized.

Parameters
penalty: ‘none’, ‘l1’, ‘l2’, ‘elasticnet’ (default = ‘l2’)

Used to specify the norm used in the penalization. If ‘none’ or ‘l2’ are selected, then L-BFGS solver will be used. If ‘l1’ is selected, solver OWL-QN will be used. If ‘elasticnet’ is selected, OWL-QN will be used if l1_ratio > 0, otherwise L-BFGS will be used.

tol: float (default = 1e-4)

Tolerance for stopping criteria. The exact stopping conditions depend on the chosen solver. Check the solver’s documentation for more details:

C: float (default = 1.0)

Inverse of regularization strength; must be a positive float.

fit_intercept: boolean (default = True)

If True, the model tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

class_weight: None

Custom class weighs are currently not supported.

class_weight: dict or ‘balanced’, default=None

By default all classes have a weight one. However, a dictionary can be provided with weights associated with classes in the form {class_label: weight}. The “balanced” mode uses the values of y to automatically adjust weights inversely proportional to class frequencies in the input data as n_samples / (n_classes * np.bincount(y)). Note that these weights will be multiplied with sample_weight (passed through the fit method) if sample_weight is specified.

max_iter: int (default = 1000)

Maximum number of iterations taken for the solvers to converge.

linesearch_max_iter: int (default = 50)

Max number of linesearch iterations per outer iteration used in the lbfgs and owl QN solvers.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

l1_ratio: float or None, optional (default=None)

The Elastic-Net mixing parameter, with 0 <= l1_ratio <= 1

solver: ‘qn’, ‘lbfgs’, ‘owl’ (default=’qn’).

Algorithm to use in the optimization problem. Currently only qn is supported, which automatically selects either L-BFGS or OWL-QN depending on the conditions of the l1 regularization described above. Options ‘lbfgs’ and ‘owl’ are just convenience values that end up using the same solver following the same rules.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

cuML’s LogisticRegression uses a different solver that the equivalent Scikit-learn, except when there is no penalty and solver=lbfgs is used in Scikit-learn. This can cause (smaller) differences in the coefficients and predictions of the model, similar to using different solvers in Scikit-learn.

For additional information, see Scikit-learn’s LogisticRegression.

Ridge Regression

class cuml.Ridge(*, alpha=1.0, solver='eig', fit_intercept=True, normalize=False, handle=None, output_type=None, verbose=False)

Ridge extends LinearRegression by providing L2 regularization on the coefficients when predicting response y with a linear combination of the predictors in X. It can reduce the variance of the predictors, and improves the conditioning of the problem.

cuML’s Ridge can take array-like objects, either in host as NumPy arrays or in device (as Numba or __cuda_array_interface__ compliant), in addition to cuDF objects. It provides 3 algorithms: SVD, Eig and CD to fit a linear model. In general SVD uses significantly more memory and is slower than Eig. If using CUDA 10.1, the memory difference is even bigger than in the other supported CUDA versions. However, SVD is more stable than Eig (default). CD uses Coordinate Descent and can be faster when data is large.

Parameters
alphafloat (default = 1.0)

Regularization strength - must be a positive float. Larger values specify stronger regularization. Array input will be supported later.

solver{‘eig’, ‘svd’, ‘cd’} (default = ‘eig’)

Eig uses a eigendecomposition of the covariance matrix, and is much faster. SVD is slower, but guaranteed to be stable. CD or Coordinate Descent is very fast and is suitable for large problems.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, Ridge tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

normalizeboolean (default = False)

If True, the predictors in X will be normalized by dividing by it’s L2 norm. If False, no scaling will be done.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

Notes

Ridge provides L2 regularization. This means that the coefficients can shrink to become very small, but not zero. This can cause issues of interpretability on the coefficients. Consider using Lasso, or thresholding small coefficients to zero.

Applications of Ridge

Ridge Regression is used in the same way as LinearRegression, but does not suffer from multicollinearity issues. Ridge is used in insurance premium prediction, stock market analysis and much more.

For additional docs, see Scikit-learn’s Ridge Regression.

Lasso Regression

class cuml.Lasso(*, alpha=1.0, fit_intercept=True, normalize=False, max_iter=1000, tol=0.001, selection='cyclic', handle=None, output_type=None, verbose=False)

Lasso extends LinearRegression by providing L1 regularization on the coefficients when predicting response y with a linear combination of the predictors in X. It can zero some of the coefficients for feature selection and improves the conditioning of the problem.

cuML’s Lasso can take array-like objects, either in host as NumPy arrays or in device (as Numba or __cuda_array_interface__ compliant), in addition to cuDF objects. It uses coordinate descent to fit a linear model.

Parameters
alphafloat (default = 1.0)

Constant that multiplies the L1 term. alpha = 0 is equivalent to an ordinary least square, solved by the LinearRegression class. For numerical reasons, using alpha = 0 with the Lasso class is not advised. Given this, you should use the LinearRegression class.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, Lasso tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

normalizeboolean (default = False)

If True, the predictors in X will be normalized by dividing by it’s L2 norm. If False, no scaling will be done.

max_iterint

The maximum number of iterations

tolfloat (default = 1e-3)

The tolerance for the optimization: if the updates are smaller than tol, the optimization code checks the dual gap for optimality and continues until it is smaller than tol.

selection{‘cyclic’, ‘random’} (default=’cyclic’)

If set to ‘random’, a random coefficient is updated every iteration rather than looping over features sequentially by default. This (setting to ‘random’) often leads to significantly faster convergence especially when tol is higher than 1e-4.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

Notes

ElasticNet extends LinearRegression with combined L1 and L2 regularizations on the coefficients when predicting response y with a linear combination of the predictors in X. It can reduce the variance of the predictors, force some coefficients to be small, and improves the conditioning of the problem.

cuML’s ElasticNet an array-like object or cuDF DataFrame, uses coordinate descent to fit a linear model.

Parameters

Constant that multiplies the L1 term. alpha = 0 is equivalent to an ordinary least square, solved by the LinearRegression object. For numerical reasons, using alpha = 0 with the Lasso object is not advised. Given this, you should use the LinearRegression object.

l1_ratio: float (default = 0.5)

The ElasticNet mixing parameter, with 0 <= l1_ratio <= 1. For l1_ratio = 0 the penalty is an L2 penalty. For l1_ratio = 1 it is an L1 penalty. For 0 < l1_ratio < 1, the penalty is a combination of L1 and L2.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, Lasso tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

normalizeboolean (default = False)

If True, the predictors in X will be normalized by dividing by it’s L2 norm. If False, no scaling will be done.

max_iterint (default = 1000)

The maximum number of iterations

tolfloat (default = 1e-3)

The tolerance for the optimization: if the updates are smaller than tol, the optimization code checks the dual gap for optimality and continues until it is smaller than tol.

selection{‘cyclic’, ‘random’} (default=’cyclic’)

If set to ‘random’, a random coefficient is updated every iteration rather than looping over features sequentially by default. This (setting to ‘random’) often leads to significantly faster convergence especially when tol is higher than 1e-4.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

Notes

For additional docs, see scikitlearn’s ElasticNet.

Mini Batch SGD Classifier

class cuml.MBSGDClassifier(*, loss='hinge', penalty='l2', alpha=0.0001, l1_ratio=0.15, fit_intercept=True, epochs=1000, tol=0.001, shuffle=True, learning_rate='constant', eta0=0.001, power_t=0.5, batch_size=32, n_iter_no_change=5, handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None)

Linear models (linear SVM, logistic regression, or linear regression) fitted by minimizing a regularized empirical loss with mini-batch SGD. The MBSGD Classifier implementation is experimental and and it uses a different algorithm than sklearn’s SGDClassifier. In order to improve the results obtained from cuML’s MBSGDClassifier: * Reduce the batch size * Increase the eta0 * Increase the number of iterations Since cuML is analyzing the data in batches using a small eta0 might not let the model learn as much as scikit learn does. Furthermore, decreasing the batch size might seen an increase in the time required to fit the model.

Parameters
loss{‘hinge’, ‘log’, ‘squared_loss’} (default = ‘squared_loss’)

‘hinge’ uses linear SVM

‘log’ uses logistic regression

‘squared_loss’ uses linear regression

penalty: {‘none’, ‘l1’, ‘l2’, ‘elasticnet’} (default = ‘none’)

‘none’ does not perform any regularization

‘l1’ performs L1 norm (Lasso) which minimizes the sum of the abs value of coefficients

‘l2’ performs L2 norm (Ridge) which minimizes the sum of the square of the coefficients

‘elasticnet’ performs Elastic Net regularization which is a weighted average of L1 and L2 norms

alpha: float (default = 0.0001)

The constant value which decides the degree of regularization

l1_ratio: float (default=0.15)

The l1_ratio is used only when penalty = elasticnet. The value for l1_ratio should be 0 <= l1_ratio <= 1. When l1_ratio = 0 then the penalty = 'l2' and if l1_ratio = 1 then penalty = 'l1'

batch_size: int (default = 32)

It sets the number of samples that will be included in each batch.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, the model tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

epochsint (default = 1000)

The number of times the model should iterate through the entire dataset during training (default = 1000)

tolfloat (default = 1e-3)

The training process will stop if current_loss > previous_loss - tol

shuffleboolean (default = True)

True, shuffles the training data after each epoch False, does not shuffle the training data after each epoch

Initial learning rate

power_tfloat (default = 0.5)

The exponent used for calculating the invscaling learning rate

learning_rate{‘optimal’, ‘constant’, ‘invscaling’, ‘adaptive’}

(default = ‘constant’)

optimal option will be supported in a future version

constant keeps the learning rate constant

Methods

get_param_names(self)

Returns a list of hyperparameter names owned by this class.

get_param_names(self)[source]

Returns a list of hyperparameter names owned by this class. It is expected that every child class overrides this method and appends its extra set of parameters that it in-turn owns. This is to simplify the implementation of get_params and set_params methods.

Naive Bayes classifier for multinomial models

The multinomial Naive Bayes classifier is suitable for classification with discrete features (e.g., word counts for text classification).

The multinomial distribution normally requires integer feature counts. However, in practice, fractional counts such as tf-idf may also work.

Parameters
alphafloat

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

Examples

Load the 20 newsgroups dataset from Scikit-learn and train a Naive Bayes classifier.

import cupy as cp

from sklearn.datasets import fetch_20newsgroups
from sklearn.feature_extraction.text import CountVectorizer

from cuml.naive_bayes import MultinomialNB

# Load corpus

twenty_train = fetch_20newsgroups(subset='train',
                        shuffle=True, random_state=42)

# Turn documents into term frequency vectors

count_vect = CountVectorizer()
features = count_vect.fit_transform(twenty_train.data)

# Put feature vectors and labels on the GPU

X = cp.sparse.csr_matrix(features.tocsr(), dtype=cp.float32)
y = cp.asarray(twenty_train.target, dtype=cp.int32)

# Train model

model = MultinomialNB()

‘hinge’ uses linear SVM ‘log’ uses logistic regression ‘squared_loss’ uses linear regression

penalty: ‘none’, ‘l1’, ‘l2’, ‘elasticnet’ (default = ‘none’)

‘none’ does not perform any regularization ‘l1’ performs L1 norm (Lasso) which minimizes the sum of the abs value of coefficients ‘l2’ performs L2 norm (Ridge) which minimizes the sum of the square of the coefficients ‘elasticnet’ performs Elastic Net regularization which is a weighted average of L1 and L2 norms

alpha: float (default = 0.0001)

Random Forest

class cuml.ensemble.RandomForestClassifier(*, split_criterion=0, handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None, **kwargs)

Implements a Random Forest classifier model which fits multiple decision tree classifiers in an ensemble.

Note

Note that the underlying algorithm for tree node splits differs from that used in scikit-learn. By default, the cuML Random Forest uses a histogram-based algorithm to determine splits, rather than an exact count. You can tune the size of the histograms with the n_bins parameter.

Note

You can export cuML Random Forest models and run predictions with them on machines without an NVIDIA GPUs. See https://docs.rapids.ai/api/cuml/nightly/pickling_cuml_models.html for more details.

Known Limitations: This is an early release of the cuML Random Forest code. It contains a few known limitations:

  • GPU-based inference is only supported if the model was trained with 32-bit (float32) datatypes. CPU-based inference may be used in this case as a slower fallback.

  • Very deep / very wide models may exhaust available GPU memory. Future versions of cuML will provide an alternative algorithm to reduce memory consumption.

  • While training the model for multi class classification problems, using deep trees or max_features=1.0 provides better performance.

  • Prediction of classes is currently different from how scikit-learn predicts:

    • scikit-learn predicts random forest classifiers by obtaining class probabilities from each component tree, then averaging these class probabilities over all the ensemble members, and finally resolving to the label with highest probability as prediction.

    • cuml random forest classifier prediction differs in that, each component tree generates labels instead of class probabilities; with the most frequent label over all the trees (the statistical mode) resolved as prediction.

    The above differences might cause marginal variations in accuracy in tradeoff to better performance. See: https://github.com/rapidsai/cuml/issues/3764

Parameters
n_estimatorsint (default = 100)

Number of trees in the forest. (Default changed to 100 in cuML 0.11)

split_algoint (default = 1)

Deprecated and currrently has no effect. .. deprecated:: 21.06

bootstrapboolean (default = True)

Control bootstrapping. If True, each tree in the forest is built on a bootstrapped sample with replacement. If False, the whole dataset is used to build each tree.

max_samplesfloat (default = 1.0)

Ratio of dataset rows used while fitting each tree.

max_depthint (default = 16)

Maximum tree depth. Unlimited (i.e, until leaves are pure), if -1. Unlimited depth is not supported. Note that this default differs from scikit-learn’s random forest, which defaults to unlimited depth.

Maximum leaf nodes per tree. Soft constraint. Unlimited, if -1.

max_featuresint, float, or string (default = ‘auto’)

Ratio of number of features (columns) to consider per node split. If int then max_features/n_features. If float then max_features is used as a fraction.

n_binsint (default = 128)

Number of bins used by the split algorithm. For large problems, particularly those with highly-skewed input data, increasing the number of bins may improve accuracy.

n_streamsint (default = 4)

Number of parallel streams used for forest building.

min_samples_leafint or float (default = 1)

The minimum number of samples (rows) in each leaf node. If int, then min_samples_leaf represents the minimum number. If float, then min_samples_leaf represents a fraction and ceil(min_samples_leaf * n_rows) is the minimum number of samples for each leaf node.

min_samples_splitint or float (default = 2)

The minimum number of samples required to split an internal node. If int, then min_samples_split represents the minimum number. If float, then min_samples_split represents a fraction and ceil(min_samples_split * n_rows) is the minimum number of samples for each split.

algostring (default = ‘auto’)

This is optional and required only while performing the predict operation on the GPU.

  • 'naive' - simple inference using shared memory

  • 'tree_reorg' - similar to naive but trees rearranged to be more coalescing-friendly

  • 'batch_tree_reorg' - similar to tree_reorg but predicting multiple rows per thread block

  • 'auto' - choose the algorithm automatically. Currently

  • 'batch_tree_reorg' is used for dense storage and ‘naive’ for sparse storage

thresholdfloat

threshold is used to for classification This is optional and required only while performing the predict operation on the GPU.

num_classesint (default = None)

number of different classes present in the dataset.

Deprecated since version 0.16: Parameter ‘num_classes’ is deprecated and will be removed in an upcoming version. The number of classes passed must match the number of classes the model was trained on.

convert_dtypeboolean, default=True

whether to convert input data to correct dtype automatically

predict_modelString (default = ‘GPU’)

‘GPU’ to predict using the GPU, ‘CPU’ otherwise. The ‘GPU’ can only be used if the model was trained on float32 data and X is float32 or convert_dtype is set to True. Also the ‘GPU’ should only be used for classification problems.

fil_sparse_formatboolean or string (default = auto)

This variable is used to choose the type of forest that will be created in the Forest Inference Library. It is not required while using predict_model=’CPU’.

  • 'auto' - choose the storage type automatically (currently True is chosen by auto)

  • False - create a dense forest

  • True - create a sparse forest, requires algo=’naive’ or algo=’auto’

class cuml.ensemble.RandomForestRegressor(*, split_criterion=2, accuracy_metric='r2', handle=None, verbose=False, output_type=None, **kwargs)

Implements a Random Forest regressor model which fits multiple decision trees in an ensemble.

Note

Note that the underlying algorithm for tree node splits differs from that used in scikit-learn. By default, the cuML Random Forest uses a histogram-based algorithm to determine splits, rather than an exact count. You can tune the size of the histograms with the n_bins parameter.

Note

You can export cuML Random Forest models and run predictions with them on machines without an NVIDIA GPUs. See https://docs.rapids.ai/api/cuml/nightly/pickling_cuml_models.html for more details.

Known Limitations: This is an early release of the cuML Random Forest code. It contains a few known limitations:

  • GPU-based inference is only supported if the model was trained with 32-bit (float32) datatypes. CPU-based inference may be used in this case as a slower fallback.

  • Very deep / very wide models may exhaust available GPU memory. Future versions of cuML will provide an alternative algorithm to reduce memory consumption.

Parameters
n_estimatorsint (default = 100)

Number of trees in the forest. (Default changed to 100 in cuML 0.11)

split_algoint (default = 1)

The algorithm to determine how nodes are split in the tree. Can be changed only for the old backend [deprecated]. 0 for HIST and 1 for GLOBAL_QUANTILE. Default is GLOBAL_QUANTILE. The default backend does not support HIST. HIST currently uses a slower tree-building algorithm so GLOBAL_QUANTILE is recommended for most cases.

Deprecated since version 21.06: Parameter ‘split_algo’ is deprecated and will be removed in subsequent release.

split_criterionint (default = 2)

The criterion used to split nodes. 0 for GINI, 1 for ENTROPY, 2 for MSE 0 and 1 not valid for regression

bootstrapboolean (default = True)

Control bootstrapping. If True, each tree in the forest is built on a bootstrapped sample with replacement. If False, the whole dataset is used to build each tree.

max_samplesfloat (default = 1.0)

Ratio of dataset rows used while fitting each tree.

max_depthint (default = 16)

Maximum tree depth. Unlimited (i.e, until leaves are pure), if -1. Note that this default differs from scikit-learn’s random forest, which defaults to unlimited depth.

max_leavesint (default = -1)

Maximum leaf nodes per tree. Soft constraint. Unlimited, if -1.

max_featuresint, float, or string (default = ‘auto’)

Ratio of number of features (columns) to consider per node split. If int then max_features/n_features. If float then max_features is used as a fraction. If ‘auto’ then max_features=1.0. If ‘sqrt’ then max_features=1/sqrt(n_features). If ‘log2’ then max_features=log2(n_features)/n_features.

n_binsint (default = 128)

Number of bins used by the split algorithm. For large problems, particularly those with highly-skewed input data, increasing the number of bins may improve accuracy.

n_streamsint (default = 4 )

Number of parallel streams used for forest building

min_samples_leafint or float (default = 1)

The minimum number of samples (rows) in each leaf node. If int, then min_samples_leaf represents the minimum number. If float, then min_samples_leaf represents a fraction and ceil(min_samples_leaf * n_rows) is the minimum number of samples for each leaf node.

min_samples_splitint or float (default = 2)

The minimum number of samples required to split an internal node. If int, then min_samples_split represents the minimum number. If float, then min_samples_split represents a fraction and ceil(min_samples_split * n_rows) is the minimum number of samples for each split.

min_impurity_decreasefloat (default = 0.0)

The minimum decrease in impurity required for node to be split

accuracy_metricstring (default = ‘r2’)

Decides the metric used to evaluate the performance of the model. In the 0.16 release, the default scoring metric was changed from mean squared error to r-squared. for r-squared : ‘r2’ for median of abs error : ‘median_ae’ for mean of abs error : ‘mean_ae’ for mean square error’ : ‘mse’

use_experimental_backendboolean (default = True)

Deprecated and currrently has no effect. .. deprecated:: 21.08

max_batch_size: int (default = 4096)

Maximum number of nodes that can be processed in a given batch.

random_stateint (default = None)

Seed for the random number generator. Unseeded by default. Does not currently fully guarantee the exact same results. Note: Parameter `seed` is removed since release 0.19.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Forest Inferencing

class cuml.ForestInference(*, handle=None, output_type=None, verbose=False)

ForestInference provides GPU-accelerated inference (prediction) for random forest and boosted decision tree models.

This module does not support training models. Rather, users should train a model in another package and save it in a treelite-compatible format. (See https://github.com/dmlc/treelite) Currently, LightGBM, XGBoost and SKLearn GBDT and random forest models are supported.

Users typically create a ForestInference object by loading a saved model file with ForestInference.load. It is also possible to create it from an SKLearn model using ForestInference.load_from_sklearn. The resulting object provides a predict method for carrying out inference.

Known limitations:
  • A single row of data should fit into the shared memory of a thread block, otherwise (starting from 5000-12288 features) FIL might infer slower

  • From sklearn.ensemble, only {RandomForest,GradientBoosting,ExtraTrees}{Classifier,Regressor} models are supported. Other sklearn.ensemble models are currently not supported.

  • Importing large SKLearn models can be slow, as it is done in Python.

  • LightGBM categorical features are not supported.

  • Inference uses a dense matrix format, which is efficient for many problems but can be suboptimal for sparse datasets.

  • Only classification and regression are supported.

  • Many other random forest implementations including LightGBM, and SKLearn GBDTs make use of 64-bit floating point parameters, but the underlying library for ForestInference uses only 32-bit parameters. Because of the truncation that will occur when loading such models into ForestInference, you may observe a slight degradation in accuracy.

Parameters
handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

For additional usage examples, see the sample notebook at https://github.com/rapidsai/cuml/blob/branch-0.15/notebooks/forest_inference_demo.ipynb

Examples

In the example below, synthetic data is copied to the host before inference. ForestInference can also accept a numpy array directly at the cost of a slight performance overhead.

# Assume that the file 'xgb.model' contains a classifier model that was
# previously saved by XGBoost's save_model function.

import sklearn, sklearn.datasets, numpy as np
from numba import cuda
from cuml import ForestInference

model_path = 'xgb.model'
X_test, y_test = sklearn.datasets.make_classification()
X_gpu = cuda.to_device(np.ascontiguousarray(X_test.astype(np.float32)))
fm = ForestInference.load(model_path, output_class=True)
fil_preds_gpu = fm.predict(X_gpu)
accuracy_score = sklearn.metrics.accuracy_score(y_test,
               np.asarray(fil_preds_gpu))

Coordinate Descent

class cuml.CD(*, loss='squared_loss', alpha=0.0001, l1_ratio=0.15, fit_intercept=True, normalize=False, max_iter=1000, tol=0.001, shuffle=True, handle=None, output_type=None, verbose=False)

Coordinate Descent (CD) is a very common optimization algorithm that minimizes along coordinate directions to find the minimum of a function.

cuML’s CD algorithm accepts a numpy matrix or a cuDF DataFrame as the input dataset.algorithm The CD algorithm currently works with linear regression and ridge, lasso, and elastic-net penalties.

Parameters
loss‘squared_loss’ (Only ‘squared_loss’ is supported right now)

‘squared_loss’ uses linear regression

alpha: float (default = 0.0001)

The constant value which decides the degree of regularization. ‘alpha = 0’ is equivalent to an ordinary least square, solved by the LinearRegression object.

l1_ratio: float (default = 0.15)

The ElasticNet mixing parameter, with 0 <= l1_ratio <= 1. For l1_ratio = 0 the penalty is an L2 penalty. For l1_ratio = 1 it is an L1 penalty. For 0 < l1_ratio < 1, the penalty is a combination of L1 and L2.

fit_interceptboolean (default = True)

If True, the model tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

max_iterint (default = 1000)

The number of times the model should iterate through the entire dataset during training (default = 1000)

tolfloat (default = 1e-3)

The tolerance for the optimization: if the updates are smaller than tol, solver stops.

shuffleboolean (default = True)

If set to ‘True’, a random coefficient is updated every iteration rather than looping over features sequentially by default. This (setting to ‘True’) often leads to significantly faster convergence especially when tol is higher than 1e-4.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

import numpy as np
import cudf
from cuml.solvers import CD as cumlCD

cd = cumlCD(alpha=0.0)

Quasi-Newton

class cuml.QN(*, loss='sigmoid', fit_intercept=True, l1_strength=0.0, l2_strength=0.0, max_iter=1000, tol=0.0001, delta=None, linesearch_max_iter=50, lbfgs_memory=5, verbose=False, handle=None, output_type=None, warm_start=False)

Quasi-Newton methods are used to either find zeroes or local maxima and minima of functions, and used by this class to optimize a cost function.

Two algorithms are implemented underneath cuML’s QN class, and which one is executed depends on the following rule:

  • Orthant-Wise Limited Memory Quasi-Newton (OWL-QN) if there is l1 regularization

  • Limited Memory BFGS (L-BFGS) otherwise.

cuML’s QN class can take array-like objects, either in host as NumPy arrays or in device (as Numba or __cuda_array_interface__ compliant).

Parameters
loss: ‘sigmoid’, ‘softmax’, ‘squared_loss’ (default = ‘squared_loss’)

‘sigmoid’ loss used for single class logistic regression ‘softmax’ loss used for multiclass logistic regression ‘normal’ used for normal/square loss

fit_intercept: boolean (default = True)

If True, the model tries to correct for the global mean of y. If False, the model expects that you have centered the data.

l1_strength: float (default = 0.0)

l1 regularization strength (if non-zero, will run OWL-QN, else L-BFGS). Note, that as in Scikit-learn, the bias will not be regularized.

l2_strength: float (default = 0.0)

l2 regularization strength. Note, that as in Scikit-learn, the bias will not be regularized.

max_iter: int (default = 1000)

Maximum number of iterations taken for the solvers to converge.

tol: float (default = 1e-4)

The training process will stop if

norm(current_loss_grad, inf) <= tol * max(current_loss, tol).

This differs slightly from the gtol-controlled stopping condition in scipy.optimize.minimize(method=’L-BFGS-B’):

norm(current_loss_projected_grad, inf) <= gtol.

Note, sklearn.LogisticRegression() uses the sum of softmax/logistic loss over the input data, whereas cuML uses the average. As a result, Scikit-learn’s loss is usually sample_size times larger than cuML’s. To account for the differences you may divide the tol by the sample size; this would ensure that the cuML solver does not stop earlier than the Scikit-learn solver.

delta: Optional[float] (default = None)

The training process will stop if

abs(current_loss - previous_loss) <= delta * max(current_loss, tol).

When None, it’s set to tol * 0.01; when 0, the check is disabled. Given the current step k, parameter previous_loss here is the loss at the step k - p, where p is a small positive integer set internally.

Note, this parameter corresponds to ftol in scipy.optimize.minimize(method=’L-BFGS-B’), which is set by default to a miniscule 2.2e-9 and is not exposed in sklearn.LogisticRegression(). This condition is meant to protect the solver against doing vanishingly small linesearch steps or zigzagging. You may choose to set delta = 0 to make sure the cuML solver does not stop earlier than the Scikit-learn solver.

linesearch_max_iter: int (default = 50)

Max number of linesearch iterations per outer iteration of the algorithm.

lbfgs_memory: int (default = 5)

Rank of the lbfgs inverse-Hessian approximation. Method will use O(lbfgs_memory * D) memory.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

warm_startbool, default=False

When set to True, reuse the solution of the previous call to fit as initialization, otherwise, just erase the previous solution.

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

Notes

The solver uses the SMO method to fit the classifier. We use the Optimized Hierarchical Decomposition [1] variant of the SMO algorithm, similar to [2].

Clustering

K-Means Clustering

class cuml.KMeans(*, handle=None, n_clusters=8, max_iter=300, tol=0.0001, verbose=False, random_state=1, init='scalable-k-means++', n_init=1, oversampling_factor=2.0, max_samples_per_batch=32768, output_type=None)

KMeans is a basic but powerful clustering method which is optimized via Expectation Maximization. It randomly selects K data points in X, and computes which samples are close to these points. For every cluster of points, a mean is computed (hence the name), and this becomes the new centroid.

cuML’s KMeans expects an array-like object or cuDF DataFrame, and supports the scalable KMeans++ initialization method. This method is more stable than randomly selecting K points.

Parameters
handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

n_clustersint (default = 8)

The number of centroids or clusters you want.

max_iterint (default = 300)

The more iterations of EM, the more accurate, but slower.

tolfloat64 (default = 1e-4)

Stopping criterion when centroid means do not change much.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

random_stateint (default = 1)

If you want results to be the same when you restart Python, select a state.

init‘scalable-kmeans++’, ‘k-means||’ , ‘random’ or an ndarray (default = ‘scalable-k-means++’) # noqa

‘scalable-k-means++’ or ‘k-means||’: Uses fast and stable scalable kmeans++ initialization. ‘random’: Choose ‘n_cluster’ observations (rows) at random from data for the initial centroids. If an ndarray is passed, it should be of shape (n_clusters, n_features) and gives the initial centers.

n_init: int (default = 1)

Number of instances the k-means algorithm will be called with different seeds. The final results will be from the instance that produces lowest inertia out of n_init instances.

oversampling_factorfloat64 (default = 2.0)

The amount of points to sample in scalable k-means++ initialization for potential centroids. Increasing this value can lead to better initial centroids at the cost of memory. The total number of centroids sampled in scalable k-means++ is oversampling_factor * n_clusters * 8.

max_samples_per_batchint (default = 32768)

The number of data samples to use for batches of the pairwise distance computation. This computation is done throughout both fit predict. The default should suit most cases. The total number of elements in the batched pairwise distance computation is max_samples_per_batch * n_clusters. It might become necessary to lower this number when n_clusters becomes prohibitively large.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

KMeans requires n_clusters to be specified. This means one needs to approximately guess or know how many clusters a dataset has. If one is not sure, one can start with a small number of clusters, and visualize the resulting clusters with PCA, UMAP or T-SNE, and verify that they look appropriate.

Applications of KMeans

The biggest advantage of KMeans is its speed and simplicity. That is why KMeans is many practitioner’s first choice of a clustering algorithm. KMeans has been extensively used when the number of clusters is approximately known, such as in big data clustering tasks, image segmentation and medical clustering.

For additional docs, see scikitlearn’s Kmeans.

DBSCAN

class cuml.DBSCAN(*, eps=0.5, handle=None, min_samples=5, metric='euclidean', verbose=False, max_mbytes_per_batch=None, output_type=None, calc_core_sample_indices=True)

DBSCAN is a very powerful yet fast clustering technique that finds clusters where data is concentrated. This allows DBSCAN to generalize to many problems if the datapoints tend to congregate in larger groups.

cuML’s DBSCAN expects an array-like object or cuDF DataFrame, and constructs an adjacency graph to compute the distances between close neighbours.

Parameters
epsfloat (default = 0.5)

The maximum distance between 2 points such they reside in the same neighborhood.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

min_samplesint (default = 5)

The number of samples in a neighborhood such that this group can be considered as an important core point (including the point itself).

metric: {‘euclidean’, ‘precomputed’}, default = ‘euclidean’

The metric to use when calculating distances between points. If metric is ‘precomputed’, X is assumed to be a distance matrix and must be square.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

max_mbytes_per_batch(optional) int64

Calculate batch size using no more than this number of megabytes for the pairwise distance computation. This enables the trade-off between runtime and memory usage for making the N^2 pairwise distance computations more tractable for large numbers of samples. If you are experiencing out of memory errors when running DBSCAN, you can set this value based on the memory size of your device. Note: this option does not set the maximum total memory used in the DBSCAN computation and so this value will not be able to be set to the total memory available on the device.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

calc_core_sample_indices(optional) boolean (default = True)

Indicates whether the indices of the core samples should be calculated. The the attribute core_sample_indices_ will not be used, setting this to False will avoid unnecessary kernel launches

Notes

DBSCAN is very sensitive to the distance metric it is used with, and a large assumption is that datapoints need to be concentrated in groups for clusters to be constructed.

Applications of DBSCAN

DBSCAN’s main benefit is that the number of clusters is not a hyperparameter, and that it can find non-linearly shaped clusters. This also allows DBSCAN to be robust to noise. DBSCAN has been applied to analyzing particle collisions in the Large Hadron Collider, customer segmentation in marketing analyses, and much more.

For additional docs, see scikitlearn’s DBSCAN.

Agglomerative Clustering

class cuml.AgglomerativeClustering(*, n_clusters=2, affinity='euclidean', linkage='single', handle=None, verbose=False, connectivity='knn', n_neighbors=10, output_type=None)

Agglomerative Clustering

Recursively merges the pair of clusters that minimally increases a given linkage distance.

Parameters
handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

n_clustersint (default = 2)

The number of clusters to find.

affinitystr, default=’euclidean’

Metric used to compute the linkage. Can be “euclidean”, “l1”, “l2”, “manhattan”, or “cosine”. If connectivity is “knn” only “euclidean” is accepted.

linkage{“single”}, default=”single”

Which linkage criterion to use. The linkage criterion determines which distance to use between sets of observations. The algorithm will merge the pairs of clusters that minimize this criterion. - ‘single’ uses the minimum of the distances between all

observations of the two sets.

n_neighborsint (default = 15)

The number of neighbors to compute when connectivity = “knn”

connectivity{“pairwise”, “knn”}, (default = “knn”)

The type of connectivity matrix to compute. - ‘pairwise’ will compute the entire fully-connected graph of

pairwise distances between each set of points. This is the fastest to compute and can be very fast for smaller datasets but requires O(n^2) space.

  • ‘knn’ will sparsify the fully-connected connectivity matrix to save memory and enable much larger inputs. “n_neighbors” will control the amount of memory used and the graph will be connected automatically in the event “n_neighbors” was not large enough to connect it.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Dimensionality Reduction and Manifold Learning

Principal Component Analysis

class cuml.PCA(*, copy=True, handle=None, iterated_power=15, n_components=None, random_state=None, svd_solver='auto', tol=1e-07, verbose=False, whiten=False, output_type=None)

PCA (Principal Component Analysis) is a fundamental dimensionality reduction technique used to combine features in X in linear combinations such that each new component captures the most information or variance of the data. N_components is usually small, say at 3, where it can be used for data visualization, data compression and exploratory analysis.

cuML’s PCA expects an array-like object or cuDF DataFrame, and provides 2 algorithms Full and Jacobi. Full (default) uses a full eigendecomposition then selects the top K eigenvectors. The Jacobi algorithm is much faster as it iteratively tries to correct the top K eigenvectors, but might be less accurate.

Parameters
copyboolean (default = True)

If True, then copies data then removes mean from data. False might cause data to be overwritten with its mean centered version.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

iterated_powerint (default = 15)

Used in Jacobi solver. The more iterations, the more accurate, but slower.

n_componentsint (default = None)

The number of top K singular vectors / values you want. Must be <= number(columns). If n_components is not set, then all components are kept:

n_components = min(n_samples, n_features)

random_stateint / None (default = None)

If you want results to be the same when you restart Python, select a state.

svd_solver‘full’ or ‘jacobi’ or ‘auto’ (default = ‘full’)

Full uses a eigendecomposition of the covariance matrix then discards components. Jacobi is much faster as it iteratively corrects, but is less accurate.

tolfloat (default = 1e-7)

Used if algorithm = “jacobi”. Smaller tolerance can increase accuracy, but but will slow down the algorithm’s convergence.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

whitenboolean (default = False)

If True, de-correlates the components. This is done by dividing them by the corresponding singular values then multiplying by sqrt(n_samples). Whitening allows each component to have unit variance and removes multi-collinearity. It might be beneficial for downstream tasks like LinearRegression where correlated features cause problems.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

PCA considers linear combinations of features, specifically those that maximize global variance structure. This means PCA is fantastic for global structure analyses, but weak for local relationships. Consider UMAP or T-SNE for a locally important embedding.

Applications of PCA

PCA is used extensively in practice for data visualization and data compression. It has been used to visualize extremely large word embeddings like Word2Vec and GloVe in 2 or 3 dimensions, large datasets of everyday objects and images, and used to distinguish between cancerous cells from healthy cells.

For additional docs, see scikitlearn’s PCA.

Incremental PCA

class cuml.IncrementalPCA(*, handle=None, n_components=None, whiten=False, copy=True, batch_size=None, verbose=False, output_type=None)[source]

Based on sklearn.decomposition.IncrementalPCA from scikit-learn 0.23.1

Incremental principal components analysis (IPCA). Linear dimensionality reduction using Singular Value Decomposition of the data, keeping only the most significant singular vectors to project the data to a lower dimensional space. The input data is centered but not scaled for each feature before applying the SVD. Depending on the size of the input data, this algorithm can be much more memory efficient than a PCA, and allows sparse input. This algorithm has constant memory complexity, on the order of batch_size * n_features, enabling use of np.memmap files without loading the entire file into memory. For sparse matrices, the input is converted to dense in batches (in order to be able to subtract the mean) which avoids storing the entire dense matrix at any one time. The computational overhead of each SVD is O(batch_size * n_features ** 2), but only 2 * batch_size samples remain in memory at a time. There will be n_samples / batch_size SVD computations to get the principal components, versus 1 large SVD of complexity O(n_samples * n_features ** 2) for PCA.

Parameters
handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

n_componentsint or None, (default=None)

Number of components to keep. If n_components is None, then n_components is set to min(n_samples, n_features).

whitenbool, optional

If True, de-correlates the components. This is done by dividing them by the corresponding singular values then multiplying by sqrt(n_samples). Whitening allows each component to have unit variance and removes multi-collinearity. It might be beneficial for downstream tasks like LinearRegression where correlated features cause problems.

copybool, (default=True)

If False, X will be overwritten. copy=False can be used to save memory but is unsafe for general use.

batch_sizeint or None, (default=None)

The number of samples to use for each batch. Only used when calling fit. If batch_size is None, then batch_size is inferred from the data and set to 5 * n_features, to provide a balance between approximation accuracy and memory consumption.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

Implements the incremental PCA model from [1]. This model is an extension of the Sequential Karhunen-Loeve Transform from [2]. We have specifically abstained from an optimization used by authors of both papers, a QR decomposition used in specific situations to reduce the algorithmic complexity of the SVD. The source for this technique is [3]. This technique has been omitted because it is advantageous only when decomposing a matrix with n_samples >= 5/3 * n_features where n_samples and n_features are the matrix rows and columns, respectively. In addition, it hurts the readability of the implemented algorithm. This would be a good opportunity for future optimization, if it is deemed necessary.

Truncated SVD

class cuml.TruncatedSVD(*, algorithm='full', handle=None, n_components=1, n_iter=15, random_state=None, tol=1e-07, verbose=False, output_type=None)

TruncatedSVD is used to compute the top K singular values and vectors of a large matrix X. It is much faster when n_components is small, such as in the use of PCA when 3 components is used for 3D visualization.

cuML’s TruncatedSVD an array-like object or cuDF DataFrame, and provides 2 algorithms Full and Jacobi. Full (default) uses a full eigendecomposition then selects the top K singular vectors. The Jacobi algorithm is much faster as it iteratively tries to correct the top K singular vectors, but might be less accurate.

Parameters
algorithm‘full’ or ‘jacobi’ or ‘auto’ (default = ‘full’)

Full uses a eigendecomposition of the covariance matrix then discards components. Jacobi is much faster as it iteratively corrects, but is less accurate.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

n_componentsint (default = 1)

The number of top K singular vectors / values you want. Must be <= number(columns).

n_iterint (default = 15)

Used in Jacobi solver. The more iterations, the more accurate, but slower.

random_stateint / None (default = None)

If you want results to be the same when you restart Python, select a state.

tolfloat (default = 1e-7)

Used if algorithm = “jacobi”. Smaller tolerance can increase accuracy, but but will slow down the algorithm’s convergence.

verboseint or boolean, default=False

Sets logging level. It must be one of cuml.common.logger.level_*. See Verbosity Levels for more info.

output_type{‘input’, ‘cudf’, ‘cupy’, ‘numpy’, ‘numba’}, default=None

Variable to control output type of the results and attributes of the estimator. If None, it’ll inherit the output type set at the module level, cuml.global_settings.output_type. See Output Data Type Configuration for more info.

Notes

TruncatedSVD (the randomized version [Jacobi]) is fantastic when the number of components you want is much smaller than the number of features. The approximation to the largest singular values and vectors is very robust, however, this method loses a lot of accuracy when you want many, many components.

Applications of TruncatedSVD

TruncatedSVD is also known as Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) which tries to find topics of a word count matrix. If X previously was centered with mean removal, TruncatedSVD is the same as TruncatedPCA. TruncatedSVD is also used in information retrieval tasks, recommendation systems and data compression.

For additional documentation, see scikitlearn’s TruncatedSVD docs.

Uniform Manifold Approximation and Projection

Finds a low dimensional embedding of the data that approximates an underlying manifold.

Adapted from https://github.com/lmcinnes/umap/blob/master/umap/umap.py

The UMAP algorithm is outlined in [1]. This implementation follows the GPU-accelerated version as described in [2].

Parameters
n_neighbors: float (optional, default 15)

The size of local neighborhood (in terms of number of neighboring sample points) used for manifold approximation. Larger values result in more global views of the manifold, while smaller values result in more local data being preserved. In general values should be in the range 2 to 100.

n_components: int (optional, default 2)

The dimension of the space to embed into. This defaults to 2 to provide easy visualization, but can reasonably be set to any

n_epochs: int (optional, default None)

The number of training epochs to be used in optimizing the low dimensional embedding. Larger values result in more accurate embeddings. If None is specified a value will be selected based on the size of the input dataset (200 for large datasets, 500 for small).

learning_rate: float (optional, default 1.0)

The initial learning rate for the embedding optimization.

init: string (optional, default ‘spectral’)

How to initialize the low dimensional embedding. Options are:

  • ‘spectral’: use a spectral embedding of the fuzzy 1-skeleton

  • ‘random’: assign initial embedding positions at random.

min_dist: float (optional, default 0.1)

The effective minimum distance between embedded points. Smaller values will result in a more clustered/clumped embedding where nearby points on the manifold are drawn closer together, while larger values will result on a more even dispersal of points. The value should be set relative to the spread value, which determines the scale at which embedded points will be spread out.

spread: float (optional, default 1.0)

The effective scale of embedded points. In combination with min_dist this determines how clustered/clumped the embedded points are.

set_op_mix_ratio: float (optional, default 1.0)

Interpolate between (fuzzy) union and intersection as the set operation used to combine local fuzzy simplicial sets to obtain a global fuzzy simplicial sets. Both fuzzy set operations use the product t-norm. The value of this parameter should be between 0.0 and 1.0; a value of 1.0 will use a pure fuzzy union, while 0.0 will use a pure fuzzy intersection.

local_connectivity: int (optional, default 1)

The local connectivity required – i.e. the number of nearest neighbors that should be assumed to be connected at a local level. The higher this value the more connected the manifold becomes locally. In practice this should be not more than the local intrinsic dimension of the manifold.

repulsion_strength: float (optional, default 1.0)

Weighting applied to negative samples in low dimensional embedding optimization. Values higher than one will result in greater weight being given to negative samples.

negative_sample_rate: int (optional, default 5)

The number of negative samples to select per positive sample in the optimization process. Increasing this value will result in greater repulsive force being applied, greater optimization cost, but slightly more accuracy.

transform_queue_size: float (optional, default 4.0)

For transform operations (embedding new points using a trained model this will control how aggressively to search for nearest neighbors. Larger values will result in slower performance but more accurate nearest neighbor evaluation.

a: float (optional, default None)

More specific parameters controlling the embedding. If None these values are set automatically as determined by min_dist and spread.

b: float (optional, default None)

More specific parameters controlling the embedding. If None these values are set automatically as determined by min_dist and spread.

handlecuml.Handle

Specifies the cuml.handle that holds internal CUDA state for computations in this model. Most importantly, this specifies the CUDA stream that will be used for the model’s computations, so users can run different models concurrently in different streams by creating handles in several streams. If it is None, a new one is created.

hash_input: bool, optional (default = False)

UMAP can hash the training input so that exact embeddings are returned when transform is called on the same data upon which the model was trained. This enables consistent behavior between calling model.fit_transform(X) and calling model.fit(X).transform(X). Not that the CPU-based UMAP reference implementation does this by default. This feature is made optional in the GPU version due to the significant overhead in copying memory to the host for computing the hash.

random_stateint, RandomState instance or None, optional (default=None)

random_state is the seed used by the random number generator during embedding initialization and during sampling used by the optimizer. Note: Unfortunately, achieving a high amount of parallelism during the optimization stage often comes at the expense of determinism, since many floating-point additions are being made in parallel without a deterministic ordering. This causes slightly different results across training sessions, even when the same seed is used for random number generation. Setting a random_state will enable consistency of trained embeddings, allowing for reproducible results to 3 digits of precision, but will do so at the expense of potentially slower training and increased memory usage.

optim_batch_size: int (optional, default 100000 / n_components)

Used to maintain the consistency of embeddings for large datasets. The optimization step will be processed with at most optim_batch_size edges at once preventing inconsistencies. A lower batch size will yield more consistently repeatable embeddings at the cost of speed.

callback: An instance of GraphBasedDimRedCallback class

Used to intercept the internal state of embeddings while they are being trained. Example of callback usage:

from cuml.internals import GraphBasedDimRedCallback

class CustomCallback(GraphBasedDimRedCallback):
    def on_preprocess_end(
