KNIME WEKA nodes (3.7) version 3.6.0.v201805031010 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland
Classification by voting feature intervals
Intervals are constucted around each class for each attribute (basically discretization).Class counts are recorded for each interval on each attribute.
Classification is by voting.For more info see:
Demiroz, A.Guvenir: Classification by voting feature intervals.
In: 9th European Conference on Machine Learning, 85-92, 1997.
Have added a simple attribute weighting scheme.Higher weight is assigned to more confident intervals, where confidence is a function of entropy:
weight (att_i) = (entropy of class distrib att_i / max uncertainty)^-bias
(based on WEKA 3.7)
For further options, click the 'More' - button in the dialog.
All weka dialogs have a panel where you can specify classifier-specific parameters.
C: Don't weight voting intervals by confidence
B: Set exponential bias towards confident intervals (default = 0.6)
The Preliminary Attribute Check tests the underlying classifier against the DataTable specification at the inport of the node. Columns that are compatible with the classifier are marked with a green 'ok'. Columns which are potentially not compatible are assigned a red error message.
Important: If a column is marked as 'incompatible', it does not necessarily mean that the classifier cannot be executed! Sometimes, the error message 'Cannot handle String class' simply means that no nominal values are available (yet). This may change during execution of the predecessor nodes.
Capabilities: [Nominal attributes, Binary attributes, Unary attributes, Empty nominal attributes, Numeric attributes, Date attributes, Missing values, Nominal class, Binary class, Missing class values] Dependencies:  min # Instance: 0
It shows the command line options according to the current classifier configuration and mainly serves to support the node's configuration via flow variables.
