A collection of python code to perform research in optimization. The aim is to provide reusable components that can be quickly applied to machine learning problems.


  • python 2.5+
  • cvxopt 1.0+ (for solving linear and quadratic programs)
  • pythongrid (for using a cluster)
  • cython 0.14.1 (for speeding up kernel computations)


The projects currently prototyped:

  • Ellipsoidal multiple instance learning
  • Contextual bandits upper confidence bound algorithm (using GP)
  • learning the output kernel using block coordinate descent
  • difference of convex functions algorithms for sparse classfication

Ellipsoidal Multiple Instance Learning

  • The code for eMIL is contained in mil.mi_classifier_emil
  • gives usage examples
  • mil.mi_data provides containers for multiple instance learning data

Learning the output kernel using block coordinate descent

  • The workhorse is, which implements a framework for minimizing the invex function for learning the kernel on outputs.
  • gives usage examples.
Changes to previous version:
  • minor bugfix
