WEKA

Description

From the WEKA Home Page: WEKA is a collection of machine learning algorithms for data mining tasks. The algorithms can either be applied directly to a dataset or called from your own Java code. Weka contains tools for data pre-processing, classification, regression, clustering, association rules, and visualization. It is also well-suited for developing new machine learning schemes.

Establishing a GUI connection to CIRCE/SC

To use WEKA, you will need to connect to CIRCE/SC with GUI redirection, either using:

  • CIRCE/SC Desktop Environment
  • SSH with X11 redirection
    • If connecting from OSX or Linux via SSH, please ensure that you use one of the following commands to properly redirect X11:
      • [user@localhost ~]$ ssh -X circe.rc.usf.edu
        or
      • [user@localhost ~]$ ssh -X sc.rc.usf.edu

Once connected to CIRCE/SC, you can open WEKA using the steps below:

[user@login0 ~]$ module add apps/weka/3.7.12
[user@login0 ~]$ weka
