Let's Chat

To make AutoKeras better, I would like to hear your thoughts. I am happy to answer any questions you have about our project. Join our Slack and send me (Haifeng Jin) a message. I will schedule a meeting with you.

AutoKeras: An AutoML system based on Keras. It is developed by DATA Lab at Texas A&M University. The goal of AutoKeras is to make machine learning accessible for everyone.


Here is a short example of using the package.

import autokeras as ak

clf = ak.ImageClassifier(), y_train)
results = clf.predict(x_test)

For detailed tutorial, please check here.


To install the package, please use the pip installation as follows:

pip3 install git+
pip3 install autokeras==1.0.3

Please follow the installation guide for more details.

Note: Currently, AutoKeras is only compatible with Python >= 3.5 and TensorFlow >= 2.2.0.
