          Priority: P2
         Component: actors

Joseph Maria requested the incorporation of data mining actors based on WEKA
and cheminformatics actors based on CDK.  Email correspondence between him and
im McPhillips follows:

I think this is an excellent idea, it would greatly increase the number of
available data mining algorithms under Kepler and benefit from all current and
future developments in Weka.

I am not a weka specialist, but as far as I know, Weka uses standard interfaces
for most of its components and algorithms (e.g. one interface for all
classifiers, one for all filters, ... ), so it should be possible to write some
fairly generic wrapper(s) to incorporate weka functionality into Kepler.

There is another machine learning package "RapidMiner" (the former "Yale")
(http://rapid-i.com/, http://sourceforge.net/projects/yale) which extends Weka,
it might be useful to look into that to see how they have incorporated Weka or
even use this as a basis for incorporation into Kepler.

Kind regards!
