An Open Source library for Automated Machine Learning.
Allows domain experts with limited machine learning background easy access to deep learning models.
Multiple examples make it simple to understand the model.
Automated Machine Learning or AutoML is the process of automating the end-to-end process of applying machine learning to real life problems. Auto-Keras is an open source software library for AutoML, a new member of the ‘open source libraries’ family. The main aim is to provide domain experts with ML knowledge, and easy access to deep learning models.
Auto-Keras provides functions to automatically search for architecture and hyperparameters of deep learning models. What makes it different is the ease of use, simple installation and the numerous examples to get started with. As it is an open source library, one can easily study, change and enhance the source code as well!
The first and the most important step to start-off with Auto-Keras is installation. To install the package, please use the pip installation as shown on their website.
For those having second thoughts (if any), there is a gamut of evidence on how effective AutoML is. AutoML was proposed as an AI based solution to the ever-growing challenge of applying machine learning and the results speak for themselves. Automating the end-to-end process of applying machine learning results in simpler solutions, faster creation of those solutions, and models that often outperform models that were designed by hand. Having said that the current version of Auto-Keras comes with a disclaimer. This is what the developers said-
“Please note that this is a pre-release version of the Auto-Keras which is still undergoing final testing before its official release.
