Load Boston Housing Dataset with tf.keras

In this article we will see how to load Boston Housing Dataset with tf.keras.dataset. This module provides some sample datasets in Numpy format.

For loading Boston Dataset tf.keras provides tf.keras.datasets.boston_housing.load_data function, which returns tuples of numpy arrays (x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test).

Load Boston Dataset and print shapes of test and training sets.

  
import tensorflow as tf

(x_train, y_train), (x_test, y_test) = tf.keras.datasets.boston_housing.load_data(
      path="boston_housing.npz", test_split=0.3, seed=85)

print(x_train.shape, y_train.shape)
print(x_test.shape, y_test.shape)

  

Output

  
(354, 13) (354,)
(152, 13) (152,)
