Design and Run your First Experiment in Weka

Weka is the perfect platform for learning machine learning. It provides a graphical user interface for exploring and experimenting with machine learning algorithms on datasets, without you having to worry about the mathematics or the programming. A powerful feature of Weka is the Weka Experimenter interface. Unlike the Weka Explorer that is for filtering data […]

How To Choose The Right Test Options When Evaluating Machine Learning Algorithms

The test options you use when evaluating machine learning algorithms can mean the difference between over-learning, a mediocre result and a usable state-of-the-art result that you can confidently shout from the roof tops (you really do feel like doing that sometimes). In this post you will discover the standard test options you can use in […]

How to Run Your First Classifier in Weka

Weka makes learning applied machine learning easy, efficient, and fun. It is a GUI tool that allows you to load datasets, run algorithms and design and run experiments with results statistically robust enough to publish. I recommend Weka to beginners in machine learning because it lets them focus on learning the process of applied machine learning rather […]

Applied Machine Learning Process

The Systematic Process For Working Through Predictive Modeling Problems That Delivers Above Average Results Over time, working on applied machine learning problems you develop a pattern or process for quickly getting to good robust results. Once developed, you can use this process again and again on project after project. The more robust and developed your […]

What is the Weka Machine Learning Workbench

Machine learning is an iterative process rather than a linear process that requires each step to be revisited as more is learned about the problem under investigation. This iterative process can require using many different tools, programs and scripts for each process. A machine learning workbench is a platform or environment that supports and facilitates […]
