Welcome to cardinal’s documentation!

cardinal is a python package that allows simple and scikit-learn compatible active learning experiments. It provides the building blocks necessary to perform simple or more complex query sampling strategies.

The code of the project is on Github: cardinal

cardinal can be installed through Pypi using:

Extras bring additional features to cardinal:

  • sklearn allows to use the KMeansSampler and RankedBatchModeSampler

  • examples intalls all packages necessary to run the examples

  • submodular installs apricot-select, and allows using SubmodularSampler

  • doc installs sphinx-gallery to be able to generate the documentation

  • all is an alias on all of the above.

You can also fetch the code and install the package from your local repository. Again, the preferred way is to use pip.
