Model Save & Load#

PyOD takes a similar approach of sklearn regarding model persistence. See model persistence for clarification.

In short, we recommend to use joblib or pickle for saving and loading PyOD models. See “examples/” for an example. In short, it is simple as below:

from joblib import dump, load

# save the model
dump(clf, 'clf.joblib')
# load the model
clf = load('clf.joblib')

It is known that there are challenges in saving neural network models. Check #328 and #88 for temporary workaround.
