Multiblock Partial Least Squares Package¶
An easy to use Python package for (Multiblock) Partial Least Squares prediction modelling of univariate or multivariate outcomes. Four state of the art algorithms have been implemented and optimized for robust performance on large data matrices. The package has been designed to be able to handle missing data, such that application is straight forward using the commonly known Scikit-learn API and its model selection toolbox.
The documentation is available at https://mbpls.readthedocs.io and elaborate (real-world) Jupyter Notebook examples can be found at https://github.com/DTUComputeStatisticsAndDataAnalysis/MBPLS/tree/master/examples

- Install the package for Python3 using the following command. Some dependencies might require an upgrade (scikit-learn, numpy and scipy).
$ pip install mbpls
- Now you can import the MBPLS class by typing
from mbpls.mbpls import MBPLS
Use the mbpls package for Partial Least Squares (PLS) prediction modeling¶
import numpy as np from mbpls.mbpls import MBPLS num_samples = 40 num_features = 200 # Generate random data matrix X x = np.random.rand(num_samples, num_features) # Generate random reference vector y y = np.random.rand(num_samples,1) # Establish prediction model using 2 latent variables (components) pls = MBPLS(n_components=2) pls.fit(x,y) y_pred = pls.predict(x)
The mbpls package for Multiblock Partial Least Squares (MB-PLS) prediction modeling¶
import numpy as np from mbpls.mbpls import MBPLS num_samples = 40 num_features_x1 = 200 num_features_x2 = 250 # Generate two random data matrices X1 and X2 (two blocks) x1 = np.random.rand(num_samples, num_features_x1) x2 = np.random.rand(num_samples, num_features_x2) # Generate random reference vector y y = np.random.rand(num_samples, 1) # Establish prediction model using 3 latent variables (components) mbpls = MBPLS(n_components=3) mbpls.fit([x1, x2],y) y_pred = mbpls.predict([x1, x2]) # Use built-in plot method for exploratory analysis of multiblock pls models mbpls.plot(num_components=3)
