UMAP API Guide

UMAP has only a single class UMAP.

UMAP

class umap.umap_.UMAP(n_neighbors=15, n_components=2, metric='euclidean', n_epochs=None, learning_rate=1.0, init='spectral', min_dist=0.1, spread=1.0, set_op_mix_ratio=1.0, local_connectivity=1.0, repulsion_strength=1.0, negative_sample_rate=5, transform_queue_size=4.0, a=None, b=None, random_state=None, metric_kwds=None, angular_rp_forest=False, target_n_neighbors=-1, target_metric='categorical', target_metric_kwds=None, target_weight=0.5, transform_seed=42, verbose=False)

Uniform Manifold Approximation and Projection

Finds a low dimensional embedding of the data that approximates an underlying manifold.

n_neighbors: float (optional, default 15)
The size of local neighborhood (in terms of number of neighboring sample points) used for manifold approximation. Larger values result in more global views of the manifold, while smaller values result in more local data being preserved. In general values should be in the range 2 to 100.
n_components: int (optional, default 2)
The dimension of the space to embed into. This defaults to 2 to provide easy visualization, but can reasonably be set to any integer value in the range 2 to 100.
metric: string or function (optional, default ‘euclidean’)

The metric to use to compute distances in high dimensional space. If a string is passed it must match a valid predefined metric. If a general metric is required a function that takes two 1d arrays and returns a float can be provided. For performance purposes it is required that this be a numba jit’d function. Valid string metrics include:

  • euclidean
  • manhattan
  • chebyshev
  • minkowski
  • canberra
  • braycurtis
  • mahalanobis
  • wminkowski
  • seuclidean
  • cosine
  • correlation
  • haversine
  • hamming
  • jaccard
  • dice
  • russelrao
  • kulsinski
  • rogerstanimoto
  • sokalmichener
  • sokalsneath
  • yule

Metrics that take arguments (such as minkowski, mahalanobis etc.) can have arguments passed via the metric_kwds dictionary. At this time care must be taken and dictionary elements must be ordered appropriately; this will hopefully be fixed in the future.

n_epochs: int (optional, default None)
The number of training epochs to be used in optimizing the low dimensional embedding. Larger values result in more accurate embeddings. If None is specified a value will be selected based on the size of the input dataset (200 for large datasets, 500 for small).
learning_rate: float (optional, default 1.0)
The initial learning rate for the embedding optimization.
init: string (optional, default ‘spectral’)
How to initialize the low dimensional embedding. Options are:
  • ‘spectral’: use a spectral embedding of the fuzzy 1-skeleton
  • ‘random’: assign initial embedding positions at random.
  • A numpy array of initial embedding positions.
min_dist: float (optional, default 0.1)
The effective minimum distance between embedded points. Smaller values will result in a more clustered/clumped embedding where nearby points on the manifold are drawn closer together, while larger values will result on a more even dispersal of points. The value should be set relative to the spread value, which determines the scale at which embedded points will be spread out.
spread: float (optional, default 1.0)
The effective scale of embedded points. In combination with min_dist this determines how clustered/clumped the embedded points are.
set_op_mix_ratio: float (optional, default 1.0)
Interpolate between (fuzzy) union and intersection as the set operation used to combine local fuzzy simplicial sets to obtain a global fuzzy simplicial sets. Both fuzzy set operations use the product t-norm. The value of this parameter should be between 0.0 and 1.0; a value of 1.0 will use a pure fuzzy union, while 0.0 will use a pure fuzzy intersection.
local_connectivity: int (optional, default 1)
The local connectivity required – i.e. the number of nearest neighbors that should be assumed to be connected at a local level. The higher this value the more connected the manifold becomes locally. In practice this should be not more than the local intrinsic dimension of the manifold.
repulsion_strength: float (optional, default 1.0)
Weighting applied to negative samples in low dimensional embedding optimization. Values higher than one will result in greater weight being given to negative samples.
negative_sample_rate: int (optional, default 5)
The number of negative samples to select per positive sample in the optimization process. Increasing this value will result in greater repulsive force being applied, greater optimization cost, but slightly more accuracy.
transform_queue_size: float (optional, default 4.0)
For transform operations (embedding new points using a trained model_ this will control how aggressively to search for nearest neighbors. Larger values will result in slower performance but more accurate nearest neighbor evaluation.
a: float (optional, default None)
More specific parameters controlling the embedding. If None these values are set automatically as determined by min_dist and spread.
b: float (optional, default None)
More specific parameters controlling the embedding. If None these values are set automatically as determined by min_dist and spread.
random_state: int, RandomState instance or None, optional (default: None)
If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.
metric_kwds: dict (optional, default None)
Arguments to pass on to the metric, such as the p value for Minkowski distance. If None then no arguments are passed on.
angular_rp_forest: bool (optional, default False)
Whether to use an angular random projection forest to initialise the approximate nearest neighbor search. This can be faster, but is mostly on useful for metric that use an angular style distance such as cosine, correlation etc. In the case of those metrics angular forests will be chosen automatically.
target_n_neighbors: int (optional, default -1)
The number of nearest neighbors to use to construct the target simplcial set. If set to -1 use the n_neighbors value.
target_metric: string or callable (optional, default ‘categorical’)
The metric used to measure distance for a target array is using supervised dimension reduction. By default this is ‘categorical’ which will measure distance in terms of whether categories match or are different. Furthermore, if semi-supervised is required target values of -1 will be trated as unlabelled under the ‘categorical’ metric. If the target array takes continuous values (e.g. for a regression problem) then metric of ‘l1’ or ‘l2’ is probably more appropriate.
target_metric_kwds: dict (optional, default None)
Keyword argument to pass to the target metric when performing supervised dimension reduction. If None then no arguments are passed on.
target_weight: float (optional, default 0.5)
weighting factor between data topology and target topology. A value of 0.0 weights entirely on data, a value of 1.0 weights entirely on target. The default of 0.5 balances the weighting equally between data and target.
transform_seed: int (optional, default 42)
Random seed used for the stochastic aspects of the transform operation. This ensures consistency in transform operations.
verbose: bool (optional, default False)
Controls verbosity of logging.

Optionally use y for supervised dimension reduction.

X : array, shape (n_samples, n_features) or (n_samples, n_samples)
If the metric is ‘precomputed’ X must be a square distance matrix. Otherwise it contains a sample per row. If the method is ‘exact’, X may be a sparse matrix of type ‘csr’, ‘csc’ or ‘coo’.
y : array, shape (n_samples)
A target array for supervised dimension reduction. How this is handled is determined by parameters UMAP was instantiated with. The relevant attributes are target_metric and target_metric_kwds.

A number of internal functions can also be accessed separately for more fine tuned work.

k: float
The number of nearest neighbors to approximate for.
n_iter: int (optional, default 64)
We need to binary search for the correct distance value. This is the max number of iterations to use in such a search.
local_connectivity: int (optional, default 1)
The local connectivity required – i.e. the number of nearest neighbors that should be assumed to be connected at a local level. The higher this value the more connected the manifold becomes locally. In practice this should be not more than the local intrinsic dimension of the manifold.
bandwidth: float (optional, default 1)
The target bandwidth of the kernel, larger values will produce larger return values.
knn_dist: array of shape (n_samples,)
The distance to kth nearest neighbor, as suitably approximated.
nn_dist: array of shape (n_samples,)
The distance to the 1st nearest neighbor for each point.
