The focus of Shogun is on kernel machines such as support vector machines for regression and classification problems. Shogun also offers a full implementation of Hidden Markov models.The toolbox seamlessly allows to easily combine multiple data representations, algorithm classes, and general purpose tools. This enables both rapid prototyping of data pipelines and extensibility in terms of new algorithms.

It now offers features that span the whole space of Machine Learning methods, including many classical methods in classification, regression, dimensionality reduction, clustering, but also more advanced algorithm classes such as metric, multi-task, structured output, and online learning, as well as feature hashing, ensemble methods, and optimization, just to name a few. Shogun in addition contains a number of exclusive state-of-the art algorithms such as a wealth of efficient SVM implementations, Multiple Kernel Learning, kernel hypothesis testing, Krylov methods, etc. All algorithms are supported by a collection of general purpose methods for evaluation, parameter tuning, preprocessing, serialisation & I/O, etc; the resulting combinatorial possibilities are huge.

    Collection of efficient and unified machine learning scheme

    What is best?

    Shogun is a learning platform intended to provide machine learning schemes to hackers, practitioners, idealists, citizens, data enthusiasts, journalists and scientists. Shogun has an extensive collection of efficient and unified machine learning schemes.

    What are the benefits?

    To access the platform, you only need to connect to a jupyter notebook or the Shogun cloud. By defaults, it runs in Linux/Unix, MacOS and Windows, as well as multiple languages, hence it can be used as a channel for algorithm exposure in different communities.
