AutoTabular automates machine learning tasks enabling you to easily achieve strong predictive performance in your applications. With just a few lines of code, you can train and deploy high-accuracy machine learning and deep learning models tabular data.


What’s good in it?

  • It is using the RAPIDS as back-end support, gives you the ability to execute end-to-end data science and analytics pipelines entirely on GPUs.
  • It Supports many anomaly detection models: ,
  • It using meta learning to accelerate model selection and parameter tuning.
  • It is using many Deep Learning models for tabular data: Wide&Deep, DCN(Deep & Cross Network), FM, DeepFM, PNN
  • It is using many machine learning algorithms: Baseline, Linear, Random Forest, Extra Trees, LightGBM, Xgboost, CatBoost, and Nearest Neighbors.
  • It can compute Ensemble based on greedy algorithm from Caruana paper.
  • It can stack models to build level 2 ensemble (available in Compete mode or after setting stack_models parameter).
  • It can do features preprocessing, like: missing values imputation and converting categoricals. What is more, it can also handle target values preprocessing.
  • It can do advanced features engineering, like: Golden Features, Features Selection, Text and Time Transformations.
  • It can tune hyper-parameters with not-so-random-search algorithm (random-search over defined set of values) and hill climbing to fine-tune final models.


First, install dependencies

# clone project
git clone

# install project
cd autotabular
pip install -e .
pip install -r requirements.txt

Next, navigate to any file and run it.

# module folder
cd example

# run module (example: mnist as your main contribution)
