Positive and Unlabeled Materials Machine Learning (pumml) is a code that uses semi-supervised positive and unlabeled (PU) machine learning to classify materials when data is incomplete and only examples of 'positive' materials are available.
Positive and Unlabeled Materials Machine Learning (pumml) is a code that uses semi-supervised positive and unlabeled (PU) machine learning to classify materials when data is incomplete and only examples of "positive" materials are available. As an example, pumml was used to predict the "synthesizability" of bulk and 2D materials from "positive" examples of synthesized materials.

The easiest way to get started with pumml is to create a virtual environment with python3.6 and then
pip install pumml
You can also create a virtual environment, clone this repo and do
python setup.py install in the root directory.
example_notebooks folder you will find a Jupyter notebook called
basic_example.ipynb that shows the basic functionality of the package. The notebook
materials_project_example.ipynb shows how to use pumml to predict the synthetic accessibility of theoretical materials in the Materials Project database. Static images of Materials Project data are available on figshare for experimenting with pumml.

Helpful PU learning wrappers for scikit-learn can be found at: Alexandre Drouin, pu-learning, 2013, https://github.com/aldro61/pu-learning
In addition to our transductive bagging scheme with decision tree base classifiers, we recommend the robust ensemble of support vector machines (RESVM) method introduced by Claesen et al. RESVM is an alternative PU learning method that provides an excellent benchmark. It is implemented here: Marc Claesen, EnsembleSVM, 2014, https://github.com/claesenm/EnsembleSVM and a python wrapper is available here: Marc Claesen, resvm, 2014, https://github.com/claesenm/resvm.
