Subject [jira] Commented: (MAHOUT-18) Embrace interoperability with other softwares
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 09:02:39 GMT


Ted Dunning commented on MAHOUT-18:

This will be important someday.

At that time, we should open a new JIRA and implement it.  Right now, we are working on getting
relevant capabilities.  Until we have them, interchange is fruitless.

>                 Key: MAHOUT-18
>                 URL:
>             Project: Mahout
>          Issue Type: New JIRA Project
>            Reporter: Shunkai Fu
>            Priority: Minor
> This is an open issue. It is related with all possible components existing or to born
in the future. 
> ML or DM models normally have two phases: training and scoring (or predicting). If we
agree "updating" is an independent one, we will have 3 phases. 
> There are many softwares about ML/DM outside. We want the users of Mahout be able to
import models got built from other software here, update them and/or use them for scoring.
To achieve this goal, we need to recognize the commonly used formats. 
> Besides, users may choose Mahout because Mahout is speedy in learning. After a model
is ready, they may export the model trained, view it with some visualization tool, or import
it into other software or application for scoring (or predicting). In this case, exporting
into widely recognized format is expected.
> Finally, I want to say that the importing and exporting will not influence the ongoing
projects, so developers of other components need not worry about this.
