Have a read over the attached patent application from Siemens.  It seems they are using RapidMiner to find the best practice configurations for MRI scanners by analysing the settings as used by their customers. 


Nice example of what can be done.

    I have looked at Figure 5 in the patent, and that process is only some ETL step. They want to keep the modelling hidden for some reason.

    Thank you for this!  I am sorry I didn't see this earlier but I wasn't paying attention to forum alerts.

    I am also delighted to see that Rapid Miner has a presence in China.   Our lab has a strong connection with many universities in China.  The Chinese are very interested in imaging/cognitive neuroscience ergo we have visiting Chinese nationals in our lab daily. One of my side gigs is helping Chinese scientists by editing their research papers so the can be published in English language journals.  If Rapid Miner catches on in China it will be nice to have a common platform.
