Model wrapping CTGANSynthesizer model.

Parameters
  • field_names (list[str]) – List of names of the fields that need to be modeled and included in the generated output data. Any additional fields found in the data will be ignored and will not be included in the generated output. If None, all the fields found in the data are used.

  • field_types (dict[str, dict]) – Dictinary specifying the data types and subtypes of the fields that will be modeled. Field types and subtypes combinations must be compatible with the SDV Metadata Schema.

  • field_transformers (dict[str, str]) –

    Dictinary specifying which transformers to use for each field. Available transformers are:

    • integer: Uses a NumericalTransformer of dtype int.

    • float: Uses a NumericalTransformer of dtype float.

    • categorical: Uses a CategoricalTransformer without gaussian noise.

    • categorical_fuzzy: Uses a CategoricalTransformer adding gaussian noise.

    • one_hot_encoding: Uses a OneHotEncodingTransformer.

    • label_encoding: Uses a LabelEncodingTransformer.

    • boolean: Uses a BooleanTransformer.

    • datetime: Uses a DatetimeTransformer.

  • anonymize_fields (dict[str, str]) – Dict specifying which fields to anonymize and what faker category they belong to.

  • primary_key (str) – Name of the field which is the primary key of the table.

  • constraints (list[Constraint, dict]) – List of Constraint objects or dicts.

  • table_metadata (dict or metadata.Table) – Table metadata instance or dict representation. If given alongside any other metadata-related arguments, an exception will be raised. If not given at all, it will be built using the other arguments or learned from the data.

  • embedding_dim (int) – Size of the random sample passed to the Generator. Defaults to 128.

  • generator_dim (tuple or list of ints) – Size of the output samples for each one of the Residuals. A Residual Layer will be created for each one of the values provided. Defaults to (256, 256).

  • discriminator_dim (tuple or list of ints) – Size of the output samples for each one of the Discriminator Layers. A Linear Layer will be created for each one of the values provided. Defaults to (256, 256).

  • generator_lr (float) – Learning rate for the generator. Defaults to 2e-4.

  • generator_decay (float) – Generator weight decay for the Adam Optimizer. Defaults to 1e-6.

  • discriminator_lr (float) – Learning rate for the discriminator. Defaults to 2e-4.

  • discriminator_decay (float) – Discriminator weight decay for the Adam Optimizer. Defaults to 1e-6.

  • batch_size (int) – Number of data samples to process in each step.

  • discriminator_steps (int) – Number of discriminator updates to do for each generator update. From the WGAN paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/1701.07875. WGAN paper default is 5. Default used is 1 to match original CTGAN implementation.

  • log_frequency (boolean) – Whether to use log frequency of categorical levels in conditional sampling. Defaults to True.

  • verbose (boolean) – Whether to have print statements for progress results. Defaults to False.

  • epochs (int) – Number of training epochs. Defaults to 300.

  • pac (int) – Number of samples to group together when applying the discriminator. Defaults to 10.

  • cuda (bool or str) – If True, use CUDA. If a str, use the indicated device. If False, do not use cuda at all.

  • rounding (int, str or None) – Define rounding scheme for NumericalTransformer. If set to an int, values will be rounded to that number of decimal places. If None, values will not be rounded. If set to 'auto', the transformer will round to the maximum number of decimal places detected in the fitted data. Defaults to 'auto'.

  • min_value (int, str or None) – Specify the minimum value the NumericalTransformer should use. If an integer is given, sampled data will be greater than or equal to it. If the string 'auto' is given, the minimum will be the minimum value seen in the fitted data. If None is given, there won’t be a minimum. Defaults to 'auto'.

  • max_value (int, str or None) – Specify the maximum value the NumericalTransformer should use. If an integer is given, sampled data will be less than or equal to it. If the string 'auto' is given, the maximum will be the maximum value seen in the fitted data. If None is given, there won’t be a maximum. Defaults to 'auto'.
