PFA Reader

Portable Format for Analytics (PFA) Nodes version 0.0.2.v201906141600 by University of Konstanz, Germany

PFA scoring engines are formatted as either JSON or YAML. This node reads such files and outputs the PFA as a KNIME port, allowing it to be used in conjunction with a PFA Predictor node.

PFA is expressed as a JSON or YAML document. It has control structures, e.g. conditionals, loops and user-defined functions. For more information please visit the DMG PFA website. Supported primitive types are: boolean, int, long, float, double, string. Supported complex types are: Arrays, Records, Maps, Union (Union types are used for nullable types in PFA. Other use cases are currently not supported).
