Introducing myself

Hello everyone!
I am Swanand Janardan Deodhar from India. I am one of the GSoC
2007 students selected through Ruby Central. I am focussing on building
a ETL and Data mining framework in Ruby. I am hoping that all the Ruby
gurus here will aid me in this.

Thanks and regards,
Swanand.

Welcome. We are excited about your project and can’t wait to see how
it turns out.

That is quite a tall order, IMHO. I would suggest having a look at Weka:

http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/ml/weka/

I used it last quarter in my graduate Data Mining class. It is quite
powerful and, more importantly, was written collaboratively by active
researchers in the field. It also has a big following in the academic
world.

The best part is that I didn’t have to put my programmer’s hat on every
time I wanted to play around with a statistical algorithm in the
textbook because, usually, it was already implemented in Weka. :slight_smile:

Although Weka is written in Java, I think you could build a Ruby
interface atop it with JRuby. However, I am not familiar with the rules
of GSoC, so making a light abstraction layer above existing software
might not be allowed?

Link to a very nice article. I learnt about SVD and ‘linalg’.

Thanks,

Hi!
Thanks everyone for showing so much interest and also for giving
some really useful links. As far as ActiveWarehouse is concerned i am
already looking into it’s ETL part.

Thanks and regards,
Swanand.

On the topic of items of interest, you may also want to checkout the
activewarehouse-etl gem.

Excuse me, what is ETL and Data mining framework ?

Two resources you will probably find useful:
http://www.google.com/
http://www.wikipedia.org/

The second gives you immediately:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etl
