sklearn.config_context

sklearn.config_context(*, assume_finite=None, working_memory=None, print_changed_only=None, display=None, pairwise_dist_chunk_size=None, enable_cython_pairwise_dist=None, array_api_dispatch=None, transform_output=None)[source]

Context manager for global scikit-learn configuration.

Parameters:
assume_finitebool, default=None

If True, validation for finiteness will be skipped, saving time, but leading to potential crashes. If False, validation for finiteness will be performed, avoiding error. If None, the existing value won’t change. The default value is False.

working_memoryint, default=None

If set, scikit-learn will attempt to limit the size of temporary arrays to this number of MiB (per job when parallelised), often saving both computation time and memory on expensive operations that can be performed in chunks. If None, the existing value won’t change. The default value is 1024.

print_changed_onlybool, default=None

If True, only the parameters that were set to non-default values will be printed when printing an estimator. For example, print(SVC()) while True will only print ‘SVC()’, but would print ‘SVC(C=1.0, cache_size=200, …)’ with all the non-changed parameters when False. If None, the existing value won’t change. The default value is True.

Changed in version 0.23: Default changed from False to True.

display{‘text’, ‘diagram’}, default=None

If ‘diagram’, estimators will be displayed as a diagram in a Jupyter lab or notebook context. If ‘text’, estimators will be displayed as text. If None, the existing value won’t change. The default value is ‘diagram’.

New in version 0.23.

pairwise_dist_chunk_sizeint, default=None

The number of row vectors per chunk for the accelerated pairwise- distances reduction backend. Default is 256 (suitable for most of modern laptops’ caches and architectures).

Intended for easier benchmarking and testing of scikit-learn internals. End users are not expected to benefit from customizing this configuration setting.

New in version 1.1.

enable_cython_pairwise_distbool, default=None

Use the accelerated pairwise-distances reduction backend when possible. Global default: True.

Intended for easier benchmarking and testing of scikit-learn internals. End users are not expected to benefit from customizing this configuration setting.

New in version 1.1.

array_api_dispatchbool, default=None

Use Array API dispatching when inputs follow the Array API standard. Default is False.

See the User Guide for more details.

New in version 1.2.

transform_outputstr, default=None

Configure output of transform and fit_transform.

See Introducing the set_output API for an example on how to use the API.

  • "default": Default output format of a transformer

  • "pandas": DataFrame output

  • None: Transform configuration is unchanged

New in version 1.2.

Yields:
None.

Notes

All settings, not just those presently modified, will be returned to their previous values when the context manager is exited.
