Passive Aggressive Regressor

Read more in the User Guide.


Maximum step size (regularization). Defaults to 1.0.


Whether the intercept should be estimated or not. If False, the data is assumed to be already centered. Defaults to True.

max_iterint, optional (default=1000)

The maximum number of passes over the training data (aka epochs). It only impacts the behavior in the fit method, and not the partial_fit method.

New in version 0.19.

tolfloat or None, optional (default=1e-3)

The stopping criterion. If it is not None, the iterations will stop when (loss > previous_loss - tol).

New in version 0.19.

early_stoppingbool, default=False

Whether to use early stopping to terminate training when validation. score is not improving. If set to True, it will automatically set aside a fraction of training data as validation and terminate training when validation score is not improving by at least tol for n_iter_no_change consecutive epochs.

New in version 0.20.

validation_fractionfloat, default=0.1

The proportion of training data to set aside as validation set for early stopping. Must be between 0 and 1. Only used if early_stopping is True.

New in version 0.20.

n_iter_no_changeint, default=5

Number of iterations with no improvement to wait before early stopping.

New in version 0.20.

shufflebool, default=True

Whether or not the training data should be shuffled after each epoch.

verboseinteger, optional

The verbosity level

lossstring, optional

The loss function to be used: epsilon_insensitive: equivalent to PA-I in the reference paper. squared_epsilon_insensitive: equivalent to PA-II in the reference paper.


If the difference between the current prediction and the correct label is below this threshold, the model is not updated.

random_stateint, RandomState instance or None, optional, default=None

The seed of the pseudo random number generator to use when shuffling the data. If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.

warm_startbool, optional

When set to True, reuse the solution of the previous call to fit as initialization, otherwise, just erase the previous solution. See the Glossary.

Repeatedly calling fit or partial_fit when warm_start is True can result in a different solution than when calling fit a single time because of the way the data is shuffled.

averagebool or int, optional

When set to True, computes the averaged SGD weights and stores the result in the coef_ attribute. If set to an int greater than 1, averaging will begin once the total number of samples seen reaches average. So average=10 will begin averaging after seeing 10 samples.

New in version 0.19: parameter average to use weights averaging in SGD

coef_array, shape = [1, n_features] if n_classes == 2 else [n_classes, n_features]

Weights assigned to the features.

intercept_array, shape = [1] if n_classes == 2 else [n_classes]

Constants in decision function.


The actual number of iterations to reach the stopping criterion.


Number of weight updates performed during training. Same as (n_iter_ * n_samples).
