How To Export a Scikit-learn Model#


In this guide you will learn how to export a Scikit-learn model and register it in the Model Registry.


Step 1: Connect to Hopsworks#

import hopsworks

project = hopsworks.login()

# get Hopsworks Model Registry handle
mr = project.get_model_registry()

Step 2: Train#

Define your Scikit-learn model and run the training loop.

# Define a model
iris_knn = KNeighborsClassifier(..)

Step 3: Export to local path#

Export the Scikit-learn model to a directory on the local filesystem.

model_file = "skl_knn.pkl"

joblib.dump(iris_knn, model_file)

Step 4: Register model in registry#

Use the ModelRegistry.sklearn.create_model(..) function to register a model as a Scikit-learn model. Define a name, and attach optional metrics for your model, then invoke the save() function with the parameter being the path to the local directory where the model was exported to.

# Model evaluation metrics
metrics = {'accuracy': 0.92}

skl_model = mr.sklearn.create_model("skl_model", metrics=metrics)


In this guide you learned how to export a Scikit-learn model to the Model Registry. You can also try attaching an Input Example and a Model Schema to your model to document the shape and type of the data the model was trained on.
