A lightweight Python library for Kohonen Self-Organising Maps
SimpSOM is a lightweight implementation of Kohonen Self-Organising Maps (SOM) for Python 2.7, useful for unsupervised learning, clustering and dimensionality reduction.
The package is now available on PyPI, to retrieve it just type pip install SimpSOM or download it from here and install with python setup.py install.
It allows to build and train SOM on your dataset, save/load the trained network weights, and display or print graphs of the network with selected features. The function run_colorsExample() will run a toy model, where a number of colors will be mapped from the 3D RGB space to the 2D network map and clustered according to their similarity in the origin space.
- Numpy 1.11.0 (older versions may work);
- Matplotlib 1.5.1 (older versions may work);
- Sklearn 0.15 (older versions may work), optional, needed only for clustering with algorithms other than Quality Threshold.
Example of Usage
Here is a quick example on how to use the library with a raw_data dataset:
#Import the library import SimpSOM as sps #Build a network 20x20 with a weights format taken from the raw_data. net = sps.somNet(20, 20, raw_data) #Train the network for 10000 epochs and with initial learning rate of 0.1. net.train(10000, 0.01) #Save the weights to file net.save('filename_weights') #Print a map of the network nodes and colour them according to the first feature (column number 0) of the dataset #and then according to the distance between each node and its neighbours. net.nodes_graph(colnum=0) net.diff_graph() #Project the datapoints on the new 2D network map. net.project(raw_data, labels=labels) #Cluster the datapoints according to the Mean Shift algorithm from sklearn. net.cluster(raw_data, type='MeanShift')
- Clustering is now possible with the cluster command, Quality Threshold and a few sklearn clustering algorithms are availabe.
- Update the available cluster algorithms from sklearn;
- Add documentation.
