Project description

ReservoirPy (v0.2.4)

A simple and flexible code for Reservoir Computing architectures like Echo State Networks (ESN).

PyPI version Documentation Status Build Status

ReservoirPy is a simple user-friendly library based on Python scientific modules. It provides a flexible interface to implement efficient Reservoir Computing (RC) architectures with a particular focus on Echo State Networks (ESN). Advanced features of ReservoirPy allow to improve computation time efficiency on a simple laptop compared to basic Python implementation. Some of its features are: offline and online training, parallel implementation, sparse matrix computation, fast spectral initialization, etc. Moreover, graphical tools are included to easily explore hyperparameters with the help of the hyperopt library.

This library works for Python 3.6 and higher.

Offcial documentation

See the official ReservoirPy's documentation to learn more about the main features of ReservoirPy, its API and the installation process.

Examples and tutorials

Go to the examples folder for intallation, examples, tutorials and Jupyter Notebooks.


To enable last features of ReservoirPy, you migth want to download a specific Git branch.

Available versions and corresponding branch:

  • v0.1.x : v0.1
  • v0.2.x (last stable) : master
  • v0.2.x (dev) : v0.2.x
  • (comming soon) v0.3.0 : v0.3

Quick try

Chaotic timeseries prediction (MackeyGlass)

Run and analyse these two files to see how to make timeseries prediction with Echo State Networks:

  • (using the ESN class)

  • (without the ESN class)
