Abstract BaseEstimator class to train and evaluate TensorFlow models.

Inherits From: Evaluable, Trainable

THIS CLASS IS DEPRECATED. See contrib/learn/ for general migration instructions.

Users should not instantiate or subclass this class. Instead, use an Estimator.

model_dir Directory to save model parameters, graph and etc. This can also be used to load checkpoints from the directory into a estimator to continue training a previously saved model. If None, the model_dir in config will be used if set. If both are set, they must be same.
config A RunConfig instance.


model_dir Returns a path in which the eval process will look for checkpoints.
model_fn Returns the model_fn which is bound to self.params.

See Evaluable. (deprecated arguments)

ValueError If at least one of x or y is provided, and at least one of input_fn or feed_fn is provided. Or if metrics is not None or dict.

Exports inference graph into given dir. (deprecated)

export_dir A string containing a directory to write the exported graph and checkpoints.
input_fn If use_deprecated_input_fn is true, then a function that given Tensor of Example strings, parses it into features that are then passed to the model. Otherwise, a function that takes no argument and returns a tuple of (features, labels), where features is a dict of string key to Tensor and labels is a Tensor that's currently not used (and so can be None).
input_feature_key Only used if use_deprecated_input_fn is false. String key into the features dict returned by input_fn that corresponds to a the raw Example strings Tensor that the exported model will take as input. Can only be None if you're using a custom signature_fn that does not use the first arg (examples).
use_deprecated_input_fn Determines the signature format of input_fn.
signature_fn Function that returns a default signature and a named signature map, given Tensor of Example strings, dict of Tensors for features and Tensor or dict of Tensors for predictions.
prediction_key The key for a tensor in the predictions dict (output from the model_fn) to use as the predictions input to the signature_fn. Optional. If None, predictions will pass to signature_fn without filtering.
default_batch_size Default batch size of the Example placeholder.
exports_to_keep Number of exports to keep.
checkpoint_path the checkpoint path of the model to be exported. If it is None (which is default), will use the latest checkpoint in export_dir.

The string path to the exported directory. NB: this functionality was added ca. 2016/09/25; clients that depend on the return value may need to handle the case where this function returns None because subclasses are not returning a value.

ValueError If x or y are not None while input_fn is not None.
ValueError If both steps and max_steps are not None.

Get parameters for this estimator.

deep boolean, optional

If True, will return the parameters for this estimator and contained subobjects that are estimators.

params mapping of string to any Parameter names mapped to their values.


View source

Returns list of all variable names in this model.

List of names.


View source

Returns value of the variable given by name.

name string, name of the tensor.

Numpy array - value of the tensor.

Incremental fit on a batch of samples. (deprecated arguments)

This method is expected to be called several times consecutively on different or the same chunks of the dataset. This either can implement iterative training or out-of-core/online training.

This is especially useful when the whole dataset is too big to fit in memory at the same time. Or when model is taking long time to converge, and you want to split up training into subparts.

x Matrix of shape [n_samples, n_features...]. Can be iterator that returns arrays of features. The training input samples for fitting the model. If set, input_fn must be None.
y Vector or matrix [n_samples] or [n_samples, n_outputs]. Can be iterator that returns array of labels. The training label values (class labels in classification, real numbers in regression). If set, input_fn must be None.
input_fn Input function. If set, x, y, and batch_size must be None.
steps Number of steps for which to train model. If None, train forever.
batch_size minibatch size to use on the input, defaults to first dimension of x. Must be None if input_fn is provided.
monitors List of BaseMonitor subclass instances. Used for callbacks inside the training loop.

self, for chaining.

ValueError If at least one of x and y is provided, and input_fn is provided.

Returns predictions for given features. (deprecated arguments)

x Matrix of shape [n_samples, n_features...]. Can be iterator that returns arrays of features. The training input samples for fitting the model. If set, input_fn must be None.
input_fn Input function. If set, x and 'batch_size' must be None.
batch_size Override default batch size. If set, 'input_fn' must be 'None'.
outputs list of str, name of the output to predict. If None, returns all.
as_iterable If True, return an iterable which keeps yielding predictions for each example until inputs are exhausted. Note: The inputs must terminate if you want the iterable to terminate (e.g. be sure to pass num_epochs=1 if you are using something like read_batch_features).
iterate_batches If True, yield the whole batch at once instead of decomposing the batch into individual samples. Only relevant when as_iterable is True.

A numpy array of predicted classes or regression values if the constructor's model_fn returns a Tensor for predictions or a dict of numpy arrays if model_fn returns a dict. Returns an iterable of predictions if as_iterable is True.

ValueError If x and input_fn are both provided or both None.

Set the parameters of this estimator.

The method works on simple estimators as well as on nested objects (such as pipelines). The former have parameters of the form <component>__<parameter> so that it's possible to update each component of a nested object.

**params Parameters.


ValueError If params contain invalid names.
