chazutsu is the dataset downloader for NLP.

>>> import chazutsu
>>> r = chazutsu.datasets.IMDB().download()
>>> r.train_data().head(5)

How it works

chazutsu not only download the dataset, but execute expand archive file, shuffle, split, picking samples process also (You can disable the process by arguments if you don't need).


r = chazutsu.datasets.MovieReview.polarity(shuffle=False, test_size=0.3, sample_count=100).download()
  • shuffle: The flag argument for executing shuffle or not(True/False).
  • test_size: The ratio of the test dataset (If dataset already prepares train and test dataset, this value is ignored).
  • sample_count: You can pick some samples from the dataset to avoid the editor freeze caused by the heavy text file.
  • force: Don't use cache, re-download the dataset.

chazutsu supports fundamental process for tokenization.


>>> import chazutsu
>>> r = chazutsu.datasets.MovieReview.subjectivity().download()
>>> r.train_data().head(3)

Now we want to convert this data to train various frameworks.

fixed_len = 10
X, y = r.to_batch("train")
assert X.shape == (len(y), fixed_len, len(r.vocab))
assert y.shape == (len(y), 1)
  • make_vocab
    • vocab_resources: resources to make vocabulary ("train", "valid", "test")
    • columns_for_vocab: The columns to make vocabulary
    • tokenizer: Tokenizer
    • vocab_size: Vocacbulary size
    • min_word_freq: Minimum word count to include the vocabulary
    • unknown: The tag used for out of vocabulary word
    • padding: The tag used to pad the sequence
    • end_of_sentence: If you want to clarify the end-of-line by specific tag, then use this.
    • reserved_words: The word that should included in vocabulary (ex. tag for padding)
    • force: Don't use cache, re-create the dataset.

If you don't want to load all the training data? You can use to_batch_iter.

Additional Feature

Use on Jupyter

You can use chazutsu on Jupyter Notebook.


Before you execute chazutsu on Jupyter, you have to enable widget extention by below command.

jupyter nbextension enable --py --sys-prefix widgetsnbextension
