AutoML for deep learning

Project description


codecov PyPI version Python Tensorflow contributions welcome

Official Website:

AutoKeras: An AutoML system based on Keras. It is developed by DATA Lab at Texas A&M University. The goal of AutoKeras is to make machine learning accessible to everyone.

Learning resources

  • A short example.
import autokeras as ak

clf = ak.ImageClassifier(), y_train)
results = clf.predict(x_test)



To install the package, please use the pip installation as follows:

pip3 install autokeras

Please follow the installation guide for more details.

Note: Currently, AutoKeras is only compatible with Python >= 3.5 and TensorFlow >= 2.3.0.

Contributing Code

We engage in keeping everything about AutoKeras open to the public. Everyone can easily join as a developer. Here is how we manage our project.

  • Triage the issues: We pick the critical issues to work on from GitHub issues. They will be added to this Project. Some of the issues will then be added to the milestones, which are used to plan for the releases.
  • Assign the tasks: We assign the tasks to people during the online meetings.
  • Discuss: We can have discussions in multiple places. The code reviews are on GitHub. Questions can be asked in Slack or during meetings.

Please join our Slack and send Haifeng Jin a message. Or drop by our online meetings and talk to us. We will help you get started!

Refer to our Contributing Guide to learn the best practices.

Thank all the contributors!


We accept financial support on Open Collective. Thank every backer for supporting us!
