I found the tool automatminer extremely interesting and would like to use it in our own research.
I understand that the code is running a TPOT library backend to search the model space. TPOT provides some very convenient functions which we’d like to use but were unable to achieve using automatminer. The first one is the ‘export’ function (e.g. pipeline_optimizer.export(‘tpot_exported_pipeline.py’)) which writes out the optimized pipeline to a simple python script and the 2nd one is the restart function (‘warm_start’) which allows the user to ‘pause’ the computation at a certain point and again restart it from the same. Could you kindly let me know how can we access these two functions from the automatminer interface? We’d like to export the most optimized (or two) pipeline to a python script and would like the pause and restart the optimization process at our will, as the ‘production’ level optimization can take quite a while, even with small datasets.
Looking forward to hear from you.
