Sklearn library version out of date?

I am trying to import some classifiers from sklearn documentation examples and I keep getting errors that they can not be found. Specifically the VotingClassifier and the MLPClassifier. Are these not in the library because it is out of date? I tried getting the version through the Quantopian IDE but had no luck.

Hi Armin,

While a significant subset of the sklearn package is whitelisted on Quantopian, the VotingClassifier and MLPClassifier aren't included in the whitelist. I'll submit your request to get them whitelisted though it's likely they weren't included originally for some sort of performance or security reason.

Is there any plan to add these in the near future? I would thoroughly enjoy being able to use them in my code!


It would be very nice to have a page that shows what versions of the libraries are used.

I can't believe these questions are more than a year old and I still can't use MLPRegressor.
