Use scikit-learn on Azure Databricks

This page provides examples of how you can use the scikit-learn package to train machine learning models in Azure Databricks. scikit-learn is one of the most popular Python libraries for single-node machine learning and is included in Databricks Runtime and Databricks Runtime ML. See Databricks Runtime release notes for the scikit-learn library version included with your cluster’s runtime.

You can import these notebooks and run them in your Azure Databricks workspace.

For additional example notebooks to get started quickly on Azure Databricks, see Tutorials: Get started with ML.

Basic example using scikit-learn

This notebook provides a quick overview of machine learning model training on Azure Databricks. It uses the scikit-learn package to train a simple classification model. It also illustrates the use of MLflow to track the model development process, and Hyperopt to automate hyperparameter tuning.
