seglearn 0.1.2

Machine Learning with Time Series Segmentation

Latest Version: 0.1.6


Seglearn is a python package for machine learning time series or sequences using a sliding window segmentation. It provides an integrated pipeline for segmentation, feature extraction, feature processing, and final estimator. Seglearn supports multivariate time series data with relational static variables. It is compatible with scikit-learn.


Installation documentation, API documentation, and examples can be found on the documentation.



seglearn is tested to work under Python 2.7 and Python 3.5. The dependency requirements are based on the last scikit-learn release:

  • scipy(>=0.13.3)
  • numpy(>=1.8.2)
  • scikit-learn(>=0.19.0)
  • nose (nose>=1.1.2)

Additionally, to run the examples, you need:

  • matplotlib(>=2.0.0)
  • keras (>=2.1.4) for the neural network examples
  • pandas

The neural network examples were tested on keras using the tensorflow-gpu backend, which is recommended.


seglearn-learn is currently available on the PyPi’s repository and you can install it via pip:

pip install -U seglearn

or if you use python3:

pip3 install -U seglearn

If you prefer, you can clone it and run the file. Use the following commands to get a copy from GitHub and install all dependencies:

git clone
cd seglearn
pip install .

Or install using pip and GitHub:

pip install -U git+


After installation, you can use nose to run the test suite:

nosetests seglearn/tests/test_*


The development of this scikit-learn-contrib is in line with the one of the scikit-learn community. Therefore, you can refer to their Development Guide.
