Introduction to Scikit-learn Pipelines

How to simplify the preprocessing operations

In a typical machine learning task, the features are not likely to be in the most appealing format for a model. Thus, we usually need to proprocess the features before training.

The common preprocessing operations are handling missing values, scaling the numerical features, and encoding the categorical features. The preprocessing operations can be viewed as transforming the features in some sense.

The pipeline module of Scikit-learn is a tool that makes the preprocessing simple and easy by combining the transformations in a pipe. It is important to note that the intermediate steps in a pipeline must transform a feature. Thus, they need to be able to implement the fit and transform methods.

In this article, we will be creating a pipeline to transform features for a machine learning model.

Scikit-Learn Is Still Rocking, Been Introduced To French President

Amilestone for open source projects — French President Emmanuel Macron has recently been introduced to Scikit-learn. In fact, in a recent tweet, Scikit-learn creator and Inria tenured research director, Gael Varoquaux announced the presentation of Scikit-Learn, with applications of machine learning in digital health, to the president of France.

He stated the advancement of this free software machine learning library — “started from the grassroots, built by a community, we are powering digital revolutions, adding transparency and independence.”

Machine Learning Pipelines With Scikit-Learn

This post will serve as a step by step guide to build pipelines that streamline the machine learning workflow. I will be using the infamous Titanic dataset for this tutorial. The dataset was obtained from Kaggle. The goal being to predict whether a given person survived or not. I will be implementing various classification algorithms, as well as, grid searching and cross validation. This dataset holds records for each passenger consisting of 10 variables (see data dictionary below). For the purposes of this tutorial, I will only be using the train dataset, which will be split into train, validation, and test sets.

Why Pipelines?

The machine learning workflow consists of many steps from data preparation (e.g., dealing with missing values, scaling/encoding, feature extraction). When first learning this workflow, we perform the data preparation one step at a time. This can become time consuming since we need to perform the preparation steps to both the training and testing data. Pipelines allow us to streamline this process by compiling the preparation steps while easing the task of model tuning and monitoring. Scikit-Learn’s Pipeline class provides a structure for applying a series of data transformations followed by an estimator (Mayo, 2017). For a more detailed overview, take a look over the documentation. There are many benefits when implementing a Pipeline:

Machine Learning Model Development and Deployment with MLflow and Scikit-learn Pipelines

The Victorian Gasolier is an example of an industrial gas pipeline terminating in an elegant fixture. Similarly, our machine learning pipeline needs to be functional, compatible with other systems, and attractive for both developers and users. This post contains an example of python machine learning model development using Scikit-learn pipelines and deployment with MLflow. The steps include:

  • Utilizing Scikit-learn pipeline with custom transformers
  • Output of model and custom transformer code to MLflow tracking server
  • Executing using ML Project to link model code to results
  • Serving of model from the MLflow tracking server via a REST-API

Are you using Pipeline in Scikit-Learn?

If you are doing Machine Learning, you would have come across pipelines as they help you to make a better machine learning workflow which is easy to understand and reproducible.

I recently discovered that you can combine Pipeline with GridSearchCV to not only find best hyperparameters for your model but can also find the best transformers for your machine learning tasks like-

  1. Scaler to scale your data.
  2. Impute strategy to fill missing values.
  3. The number of components in PCA you should use.

and many others. Let’s see how it can be done.

Dataset details

To best demonstrate, I am going to use the Titanic dataset from OpenML here to walkthrough on how you can create a data pipeline.

You can download the dataset using the following commands-

from sklearn.datasets import fetch_openml

# Dataset details at-
X, y = fetch_openml("titanic", version=1, as_frame=True, return_X_y=True)

Also, have a look at my notebook which have more details about each operation, feel free to download and import it in your environment and play around-
