A standard framework for using Deep Learning for tabular data

Project description

PyTorch Tabular pypi travis documentation status PyPI - Downloads contributions welcome Open In Colab

PyTorch Tabular aims to make Deep Learning with Tabular data easy and accessible to real-world cases and research alike. The core principles behind the design of the library are:

  • Low Resistance Useability
  • Easy Customization
  • Scalable and Easier to Deploy

It has been built on the shoulders of giants like PyTorch(obviously), and PyTorch Lightning.

Table of Contents


Although the installation includes PyTorch, the best and recommended way is to first install PyTorch from here, picking up the right CUDA version for your machine.

Once, you have got Pytorch installed, just use:

 pip install pytorch_tabular[all]

to install the complete library with extra dependencies.

And :

 pip install pytorch_tabular

for the bare essentials.

The sources for pytorch_tabular can be downloaded from the Github repo_.

You can either clone the public repository:

git clone git://

Once you have a copy of the source, you can install it with:

python install

Available Models

To implement new models, see the How to implement new models tutorial. It covers basic as well as advanced architectures.


from pytorch_tabular import TabularModel
from pytorch_tabular.models import CategoryEmbeddingModelConfig
from pytorch_tabular.config import DataConfig, OptimizerConfig, TrainerConfig, ExperimentConfig

data_config = DataConfig(
    target=['target'], #target should always be a list. Multi-targets are only supported for regression. Multi-Task Classification is not implemented
trainer_config = TrainerConfig(
    auto_lr_find=True, # Runs the LRFinder to automatically derive a learning rate
    gpus=1, #index of the GPU to use. 0, means CPU
optimizer_config = OptimizerConfig()

model_config = CategoryEmbeddingModelConfig(
    layers="1024-512-512",  # Number of nodes in each layer
    activation="LeakyReLU", # Activation between each layers
    learning_rate = 1e-3

tabular_model = TabularModel(
), validation=val)
result = tabular_model.evaluate(test)
pred_df = tabular_model.predict(test)
loaded_model = TabularModel.load_from_checkpoint("examples/basic")
