"Weka-style Experimenter"

Hello,

Is there any approach to perform experiments, as Weka allows inside the Experimenter interface? I would like to specifiy multiple input data sources and a set of models and then RM should perform model building and finally  automatically compare the systems' performances?

Thanks,
Lucian

    Hi Lucian,

    there's no fixed program for that, but you can easily build a process that does this. This reflects the problem that it isn't appropriate most of the time to compare just the results of a single learner, but you have to take into account the preprocessing. Some need to have normalized data, some can't cope with missing data or nominal values. That's why we have an operator for selecting a complete subprocess. You can use the Loop Parameter to loop over all subprocesses and of course you can use the Loop Collection to loop over any collection of objects, including data sets.

    Just a small example process that shows what you can do. If you combine this with for example macros or logging operations, this becomes really powerful.
