Subject RE: classifier for non-linear relationships
Date Thu, 28 Mar 2013 14:02:20 GMT
Thanks Ted. I contacted them to find out about pricing, but I am sure it will be expensive

It seems that since there are no open source solutions on this, my best is either matlab or
to purchase something from a company like neurosolutions or skytree (there are a few others
that fit the bill as well).

SkyTree comes to mind.

Mahout doesn't have what you want.
