Subject Re: Classifying general Attribute-Relation data using Mahout
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 17:43:49 GMT
Oops. The ARFF Driver writes only vectors not the tab separated format the
Bayes Classifier reads.  I will try to add that as a flag

@Grant: For batch classification,yes we can go with vectors, But I dont see
how we can classify documents on the fly if the dictionary cant fit in the
memory. Maybe, randomizers can help. We will have to wait for that.

@Ted. Waiting to pounce upon the randomizers :)
