In [13]: for est in clf.estimators_:
    ...:     print(est[0].sample_indices_)

[4 6 7 1 2 5]
[4 6 7 3 1 5]

I am not sure what estimator_samples_ is reporting. It might be a bug then
This weird that we don't document it
oh I see, we should add it in the documentation
Guillaume Lemaitre
estimator_samples_ gives the samples dispatch to the first estimator that later on will undersample
This attribute exist because we inherit from the BaggingClassifier from scikit-learn

The code you provided works fine with my generated dataset but when I use it on my real dataset this is what I get:

clf = EasyEnsembleClassifier(n_estimators=5, n_jobs=-1, sampling_strategy = 1.0)
clf.fit(X_train, y_train)
for est in clf.estimators_:

[279507 240017  23859 ...  94249  87790 120830]
[277730  75855  70104 ... 341432 318980 130029]
[166614    207  72374 ...  93568  76905 142951]
[304630  28272 143132 ... 159062 264981  41332]
[ 35943 358917  68200 ... 121931 209190 284075]

Is this a normal result? I would expect first three indices in each row to be the same. I mean; all of the samples that belong to the minority class are being used in all subsets. I am not saying this is wrong. I am just asking if this is normal?

Code runs just fine now. Thanks for help @glemaitre

It is possible that they are randomized
Ok got it.
What could be the reason of same prediction results for my dataset which I mentioned above no matter what I choose for the parameter "n_estimators"? Choosing 1000 or 1 no differs.
I'm having a weird problem with random oversampler. Running two python scripts on what is near identical data from two different sources. Getting a value error: can convert string to float for my one text-based feature. The feature formatting and number of unique values are the same in both sets. In one script it works and in one script I get the error. This apparently was an issue years ago - imbalanced learn didn't support text of pandas dataframes. I believe that has now been fixed (evidently since one of my scripts works). Guidance on how to handle? As mentioned, I have confirmed that formatting and values on the problem feature are the same. Thanks

I cannot say without a code snippet or the head of the dataset
but normally the RandomOverSampler will get a dataset and will not be an issue to have non-numerical data inside
Thanks for your reply. I tend to agree that it is something in my data vs. something in the library since it runs properly in one script.
Here is another wildcard question - I'll check myself but if someone has the answer off the top of the head it will save me some work - when oversampling and the new observations are created, are they appended to the bottom/end of the dataframe/array or are they placed adjacent to the observation from which it was created?
There we copy the original dataset
and then append new samples for each class

I'm using a multiclass dataset (cic-ids-2017), the target column is categorical (more than 4 classes), I used {pd.get_dummies} for One Hot Encoding. The dataset is very imbalanced, and when I tried to oversampling it using SMOTE method, doesn't work, I also tried to include them into a pipeline, but the pipeline cannot support get_dummies, I replaced it by OneHotEncoder, unfortunately, still not working :

X = dataset.drop(['Label'],1)
y = dataset.Label
steps = [('onehot', OneHotEncoder(), ('smt', SMOTE())]
pipeline = Pipeline(steps=steps)
X, y = pipeline.fit_resample(X, y)
Is there any proposition ?

My correlation matrix does not changed after using SMOTE, what could be the cause ?
I'm using resting-state fMRI correlation matrices, which are 4D, and I want to use SMOTE+ENN but it only allows me to use 2D data... How can I adress this problem without losing information from my original data?

This question got to do with SMOTEBoost implementation found here https://github.com/gkapatai/MaatPy but I believe the issue is relayed to imblearn library.

I tried using the library to re-sample all classes in a multiclass problem. Caught by AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'flatten' error:

How to reproduce (in Colab nb):
Clone repo:

!git clone https://github.com/gkapatai/MaatPy.git
cd MaatPy/

from maatpy.classifiers import SMOTEBoost

Dummy data:

X, y = make_classification(n_samples=1000, n_classes=3, n_informative=6, weights=[.1, .15, .75])
xtrain, xtest, ytrain, ytest = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=.2, random_state=123)

And then:

from maatpy.classifiers import SMOTEBoost
model = SMOTEBoost()
model.fit(xtrain, ytrain)

/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/imblearn/over_sampling/_smote.py in _make_samples(self, X, y_dtype, y_type, nn_data, nn_num, n_samples, step_size)
    106         random_state = check_random_state(self.random_state)
    107         samples_indices = random_state.randint(
--> 108             low=0, high=len(nn_num.flatten()), size=n_samples)
    109         steps = step_size * random_state.uniform(size=n_samples)
    110         rows = np.floor_divide(samples_indices, nn_num.shape[1])

AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute 'flatten'
hi i have a question
when using SMOTE, i get this ValueError: Found array with dim 4. Estimator expected <= 2.
its a binary class problem
not sure how to fix
pls help
@krinetic1234 as far as I'm concerned, SMOTE only works for 2D data... I have the same problem and I don't know how to solve
interesting, yea I have a CSV of grayscale images basically where each image is 224 by 224
so in that case it wouldn't work..
is there an alternative to SMOTE That works well for images?
apparently you just like multiply the image stuff
and then reshape back
idk how well it'll work though

I used SMOTEENN and SMOTE Tomek in my initial data, they take between 1,5 and 2,5 hours. But when I added some data, they run 5 hours before I interrupted them.

  • Initial data : 49,77 MB
  • Added data : 79,25 MB

  • All data = 129,02 MB

NB. SMOTE take just some second for All data.

Really interesting @krinetic1234... but using that reshape will not cause loss of information?
i thought so too.... do any of you know of a better way
to do this "SMOTE" idea for images
and btw i tried the reshape and it dint rly work properly
Akilu Rilwan Muhammad

You just need to operate proper reshaping. I once worked with a time series activity data in which I created chunks of N-size time-steps. The shape of my input was (1, 100, 4). So for the training sample, I have (n_samples, 1, 100, 4) and was a five-class, multi-minority problem, that I want to oversample using SMOTE.

The way I go about it was to flatten the input, like so:

#..reshape (flatten) Train_X for SMOTE resanpling
nsamples, k, nx, ny = Train_X.shape
#Train_X = Train_X.reshape((nsamples,nx*ny))

#smote = SMOTE('not majority', random_state=42, k_neighbors=5)
#X_reample, Y_resample = smote.fit_sample(Train_X, Train_Y)

And then reshape the instance back to the original input shape, like so:

#..reshape input back to CNN xture
X_reample = X_reample.reshape(len(X_reample), k, nx, ny)
ok but does SMOTE actually augment images? @arilwan
like lets say that i have tons of images of cats and few images of dogs, does it actually augment the dog images? and if so, how does it oversample those?
i haven't seen much where people use SMOTE for oversampling images specifically, which is why im surprised
thanks by the way, i'll definitely check what you sent
i believe i did somethign simliar but got an error

so i was also wondering something
