Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS for Machine Learning

Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS for Machine Learning provides a ready-to-go environment for machine learning and data science based on Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS. Databricks Runtime ML contains many popular machine learning libraries, including TensorFlow, PyTorch, and XGBoost. Databricks Runtime ML includes AutoML, a tool to automatically train machine learning pipelines. Databricks Runtime ML also supports distributed deep learning training using Horovod.

For more information, including instructions for creating a Databricks Runtime ML cluster, see Databricks Runtime for Machine Learning.

New features and improvements

Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS ML is built on top of Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS. For information on what’s new in Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS, including Apache Spark MLlib and SparkR, see the Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS release notes.

Enhancements to Databricks AutoML

The following enhancements have been made to Databricks AutoML.

Databricks AutoML is generally available

Starting with Databricks Runtime 10.4 LTS ML, Databricks AutoML is generally available.

Imputation of missing values

You can now specify how null values are imputed. By default, AutoML selects an imputation method based on the column type and content. See Imputation of missing values.

Column selection from UI

For classification and regression problems, you can now use the UI in addition to the API to specify columns that AutoML should ignore during its calculations. See Column selection for details.

New data type

AutoML now supports numerical array types.

Custom location of generated notebooks and experiment

You can now specify a location in the workspace where AutoML should save generated notebooks and experiments. Use the experiment_dir parameter. See Python API specification.

Enhancements to Databricks Feature Store

The following enhancements have been made to Databricks Feature Store.
