This IDA Research Summary describes the ktrain library, a free, open-source Python package that helps build, tune, train, and deploy neural networks. The ktrain library acts as a lightweight wrapper around the deep-learning library TensorFlow Keras (in addition to other libraries). It is designed to make sophisticated, state-of-the-art machine learning models easier to apply by domain experts who may have little experience in data science and artificial intelligence.
