Tree-based machine learning for embedded system

Project description

emtrees

Tree-based machine learning classifiers for microcontroller and embedded systems. Train in Python, then do inference on any device with support for C.

Key features

Embedded-friendly Inference

  • Portable C99 code
  • No libc required
  • No dynamic allocations
  • Integer/fixed-point math only
  • Single header file include
  • Fast, sub-millisecond classification
  • Memory efficient. Can run with <100 bytes RAM

Convenient Training

  • API-compatible with scikit-learn
  • Implemented in Python 3
  • C classifier accessible in Python using pybind11

MIT licensed

Can be used as an open source alternative to MATLAB Classification Trees, Decision Trees using MATLAB Coder for C/C++ code generation. fitctree, fitcensemble, TreeBagger, ClassificationEnsemble, CompactTreeBagger

Status

Minimally useful

  • Random Forests and ExtraTrees classifiers implemented
  • Tested running on AVR Atmega, ESP8266 and Linux.
  • On ESP8266, 8x8 digits classify in under 0.3ms with 95%+ accuracy
  • On Linux, is approx 2x faster than sklearn

Installing

Install from PyPI

pip install emtrees --user

Usage

  1. Train your model in Python
import emtrees
estimator = emtrees.RandomForest(n_estimators=10, max_depth=10)
estimator.fit(X_train, Y_train)
...
  1. Generate C code
code = estimator.output_c('sonar')
with open('sonar.h', 'w') as f:
   f.write(code)
  1. Use the C code
#include <emtrees.h>
#include "sonar.h"

const int32_t length = 60;
int32_t values[length] = { ... };
const int32_t predicted_class = sonar_predict(values, length):

For full example code, see examples/digits.py and emtrees.ino

TODO

0.2

  • Standalone example application on microcontroller
  • Include emtrees.h inline in generated code

1.0

  • Support returning probabilities
  • Support serializing/deserializing trees

Probably

  • Support sklearn GradientBoostingClassifier
  • Support regression trees
  • Support weighted voting
  • Implement Isolation Forests (requires path/depths)

Maybe

  • Support XGBoost learning of trees
  • Support LightGBM learning of trees
  • Support CatBoost learning of trees
  • Support/Implement a Very Fast Decision Tree (VFDT) learning algorithm
  • Implement multithreading when used in Python bindings, using OpenMP
