Subject [jira] [Commented] (MAHOUT-845) Make cluster top terms code more reusable
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 08:49:41 GMT


Frank Scholten commented on MAHOUT-845:

I agree that the original solution is too invasive and the feature you are describing is nice
for inspection.

One suggestion I have is to separate the JSON formatting from retrieving the top terms.

> I think it would be useful if (parts of) this code are added to the cluster or vector
API so that you could do something like
> Cluster cluster = ... // get the cluster from seq file iterable
> String clusterLabel = cluster.getTopTerms(1, dictionary); // Do something with the label
> I think this would make it easier to export and post-process clustering results, like
indexing or storing them elsewhere.
