MILK: MACHINE LEARNING TOOLKIT¶
Machine Learning in Python¶
Milk is a machine learning toolkit in Python.
Its focus is on supervised classification with several classifiers available: SVMs (based on libsvm), k-NN, random forests, decision trees. It also performs feature selection. These classifiers can be combined in many ways to form different classification systems.
For unsupervised learning, milk supports k-means clustering and affinity propagation.
Milk is flexible about its inputs. It optimised for numpy arrays, but can often handle anything (for example, for SVMs, you can use any dataype and any kernel and it does the right thing).
There is a strong emphasis on speed and low memory usage. Therefore, most of the performance sensitive code is in C++. This is behind Python-based interfaces for convenience.
