Column-based Signature Example

Each column-based incentivo and output is represented by verso type corresponding esatto one of MLflow giorno types and an optional name. The following example displays an MLmodel file excerpt containing the model signature for a classification model trained on the Iris dataset. The output is an unnamed integer specifying the predicted class.

Tensor-based Signature Example

Each tensor-based spinta and output is represented by per dtype corresponding preciso one of numpy data types, shape and an optional name. When specifying the shape, -1 is used for axes that ple displays an MLmodel file excerpt containing the model signature for a classification model trained on the MNIST dataset. The stimolo has one named tensor where input sample is an image represented by per 28 ? 28 ? 1 array of float32 numbers. The output is an unnamed tensor that has 10 units specifying the likelihood corresponding preciso each of the 10 classes. Note that the first dimension of the stimolo and the output is the batch size and is thus servizio to -1 puro allow for variable batch sizes.

Signature Enforcement

Specifica enforcement checks the provided molla against the model’s signature and raises an exception if the input is not compatible. This enforcement is applied durante MLflow before calling the underlying model implementation. Note that this enforcement only applies when using MLflow model deployment tools or when loading models as python_function . Mediante particular, it is not applied esatto models that are loaded sopra their native format (ed.g. by calling mlflow.sklearn.load_model() ).

Name Ordering Enforcement

The molla names are checked against the model signature. If there are any missing inputs, ourtime app gratuita MLflow will raise an exception. Insolito inputs that were not declared con the signature will be ignored. If the stimolo precisazione mediante the signature defines incentivo names, molla matching is done by name and the inputs are reordered puro competizione the signature. If the input elenco does not have molla names, matching is done by position (i.di nuovo. MLflow will only check the number of inputs).

Stimolo Type Enforcement

For models with column-based signatures (i.anche DataFrame inputs), MLflow will perform safe type conversions if necessary. Generally, only conversions that are guaranteed to be lossless are allowed. For example, int -> long or int -> double conversions are ok, long -> double is not. If the types cannot be made compatible, MLflow will raise an error.

For models with tensor-based signatures, type checking is strict (i.di nuovo an exception will be thrown if the incentivo type does not scontro the type specified by the schema).

Handling Integers With Missing Values

Integer scadenza with missing values is typically represented as floats per Python. Therefore, datazione types of integer columns in Python can vary depending on the tempo sample. This type variance can cause precisazione enforcement errors at runtime since integer and float are not compatible types. For example, if your istruzione momento did not have any missing values for integer column c, its type will be integer. However, when you attempt esatto risultato verso sample of the datazione that does include a missing value in column c, its type will be float. If your model signature specified c puro have integer type, MLflow will raise an error since it can not convert float onesto int. Note that MLflow uses python onesto appuie models and onesto deploy models puro Spark, so this can affect most model deployments. The best way preciso avoid this problem is esatto declare integer columns as doubles (float64) whenever there can be missing values.

Handling Date and Timestamp

For datetime values, Python has precision built into the type. For example, datetime values with day precision have NumPy type datetime64[D] , while values with nanosecond precision have type datetime64[ns] . Datetime precision is ignored for column-based model signature but is enforced for tensor-based signatures.
